I’m always analyzing the people and events in my life. The quickest way to lose my attention is to be predictable AND boring. (I am okay with stable and open-minded.) Now, with President Trump, we all have a way to analyze a public narcissist and to identify those patterns. Of course, “normal” narcissists perform on a much smaller stage – daily life. I ran across the following article and the section on “the Narcissist in Your Bed” grabbed my attention. It explains a lot about one of my own relationships … I’d like to note that someone with narcissistic tendencies can fly under the radar until a stressful event forces the behavior into the open. For example, unemployment.
But they’ll cheat soon enough, because for narcissists, a relationship is all about how the partner enhances their own self-image. That means always trading up to someone who’s younger, prettier, richer—or just plain newer. Narcissists will lie about where they’ve been and what they’re doing; they’ll listen less and less when you speak (not that they ever listened much to begin with), and they’ll leave you flat if you don’t leave first.
