It will look at the different phases of a relationship with a narcissist and how that relationship can end. The article will also look at why a narcissist is in love in the first place.
What is Narcissistic love?
Narcissistic love is a relationship between a narcissist and a non-narcissist (usually an empath). The narcissist’s need for admiration and lack of empathy are balanced by the non-narcissist’s ability to provide unconditional love and empathy.
The relationship is symbiotic, with the narcissist benefiting from a “nurturing” partner who can provide them with a sense of security and belonging—the non-narcissist benefits from a narcissistic partner who can give them a sense of self-esteem and confidence.
Narcissistic love is a concept popularized by Sigmund Freud and his psychoanalytic theories that proposed that narcissism is essential for a healthy personality.
Freud’s theory of sexual development, which defined libido as sexual energy with the aim of pleasure, stated that narcissism is an integral part of healthy sexual development and the development of the self.
Why do narcissists fall in love?
It’s not easy to fall in love with a narcissist. They don’t seem to have any empathy, compassion, or consideration for another person. But narcissists do fall in love. It’s thought that narcissists are more likely to fall in love than non-narcissists. But what makes them fall in love?
The narcissist falls in love with the reflection they see in their partner. Narcissists look for someone who they can admire and admire in return. They are also very aware of their physical appearance and try to find someone to keep them in top form.
They also look for someone who will reflect the image they want to convey to the world and make their lives much easier. Narcissists are very self-centered, but they also have a high sense of entitlement.
They feel that they should have whatever they want, whenever they want it. If a narcissist doesn’t get what they want, they become very aggressive and will try a lot of different tactics to get the relationship back on track.
What do Narcissists want in a lover?
Narcissists, or people with narcissistic tendencies, tend to fall in love fast and hard. And as with everything else in their lives, they expect to get what they want. So what does a narcissist want from a lover?
Just as with everything else, it’s all about them. They want someone to listen to what they say and tell them how wonderful and intelligent, and talented they are.
They want someone who will cater to their every whim and be there for them whenever they want to be. That’s a lot to expect from one person, but they don’t care. They will find someone who will do it all, and they will do it quickly.
Falling in Love with a Narcissist
Falling in love with a narcissist is unlikely to be a fun experience. Because narcissists are not likely to love you for who you are, the relationship is likely to be quite damaging to your self-esteem.
To fall in love with a narcissist, you’ll have to alter yourself to suit their tastes. This is a very unhealthy situation and can be harmful to your self-esteem. Narcissists are often attractive and charming.
They are outgoing and friendly and are generally well-liked. They have many friends, and they make friends quickly. They often try to be the party’s life and love to be the center of attention. They are very self-confident, often bordering on arrogance. They feel superior to other people, and they look down on everyone else.
So, falling in love with a narcissist is not a good decision for you. Narcissists are only about themselves.
