Narcissistic personality disorder is characterised by an exaggerated sense of self-importance, resulting in an extreme need for admiration, lack of empathy, and difficulty forming healthy relationships.
Below is 10 signs you’re dating a narcissist.
Loves to Talk About Oneself: One of the easiest ways to detect a possible narcissist is by listening they speak. Common conversational topics for narcissists include accomplishments and achievements.
Lack of Reliability and Follow Through: Another way to spot a narcissist is to measure her or his actions against her words. Many narcissists lack reliability and follow through.
Always a hero or a victim: When a narcissist tells a story, they typically present themselves as either the hero or the victim.
Lack of empathy: Lack of empathy, or the ability to feel how another person is feeling, is one of the characteristics of a narcissist.
They gaslight you: Gaslighting is a form of manipulation and emotional abuse, and it’s a hallmark of narcissism. Narcissists may give out blatant lies and falsely accuse others.
No empathy: Narcissists have little or no ability to feel empathy. They are terrible at understanding other people’s pain or hurt. They are too self focused to be able to step out of themselves to have a deep understanding of other people’s feelings.
They dominate conversations: Narcissistic partner will find any possible way to redirect a conversation back to themselves.
