Dating a narcissistic sociopath
They tend to be attractive, charismatic and appear to be really invested in meeting “the one.” A narcissist will often tell his new partner that he/she is “the man (or woman) of my dreams”, that they were “meant to be,” they are “soul mates” and will make him or her feel very special.They usually want to move fast in the relationship.
None of it made sense, and it was practically killing me waiting for him to return to the way it was.” Because the relationship started out so well, and because the ugly behavior seemed to come out of nowhere, even the most well adjusted people can get caught in the narcissist’s web of deceit.
Later they may realize they saw plenty of red flags but because the narcissist’s initial illusion was so fantastic, the warning signs were ignored.
It can be hard to recognize a narcissist — they are so charming and convincing!
They have spent their whole lives honing their skills.
But there are signs you can recognize in your partner that will tell you whether you’re dating someone with a narcissistic personality and heading for a future rife with pain.
