Dating narcissists can be tough because they make you feel bad all the time. They want attention and don’t mind taking it from you. But you can’t just leave them alone forever.
If you keep dating narcissists, you probably have a reason for it. Even though you know you probably shouldn’t keep dating them, there are reasons for it.
Dating a narcissist can be very frustrating, but the good news is, you’re not the only one. Narcissists are everywhere. From politicians to business executives, and even celebrities, they can be found in all levels of society.
When it comes to dating a narcissist, there are several key reasons you might keep going back to them, but the main reason you keep seeing them is that you are attracted to them. Narcissists are master manipulators. They have a knack for putting their best foot forward, which makes them incredibly attractive.
Here are ten reasons why you keep dating narcissists.
1. You’re Desperate
Narcissists are the perfect partners for you because you’re desperate for love.
Narcissistic people are drawn to desperate individuals. When you’re desperate, you’re more likely to open yourself up to them.
Desperation is an excellent way to get what you want because you’re willing to do anything for it. Desperate people are also more fun to be around.
When you’re desperate, you’re more likely to open yourself up to narcissistic personalities. If you’re not desperate for a relationship, attracting them will be more difficult. The narcissist wants to be in a relationship to use you to further their ego and self-interest.
2. You’re Trying to Build a Relationship
You should build relationships with people who want to have a relationship. Narcissistic people don’t have any intention of ever being in a relationship.
You may want a relationship, but the narcissist is focused on themselves. Don’t get sucked into the “relationship vortex” if you’re trying to build a relationship. Don’t waste your time building a relationship that won’t work out.
3. They have a high sex drive
They have a high sex drive. As you build relationships with narcissistic people, don’t forget to keep your sexual interest alive. Sex is the ultimate form of validation for them. If they want to date someone they can’t just have sex with, they’ll use it as a way to control you and punish you.
The narcissist will always want sex, even when they’re not attracted to you. They’ll use it as a tool to control you and manipulate you. When you don’t have sex with them, they’ll get angry and frustrated, which is exactly what they want. The narcissist is only interested in manipulating your emotions.
And you enjoy this high drive of sex from a narcissist without knowing that it is their tool to manipulate and control you.
4. They are physically attractive
Narcissists are often vain about their appearance and spend a lot of time grooming and looking good.
They want to look great for their partners. They don’t care what you think. It’s not because they’re vain. It’s because they think they deserve to look great for their partners. It’s because they think they are worthy of respect and admiration, and if you can’t admire them, then you’re not worth respecting.
If you keep dating a narcissist, they will always be physically attractive. If you’re with a narcissist, they will always look good and feel good.
5. You’re Not Strong Enough to Leave Them
If you’re with a narcissist, you’re probably going to end up in an abusive relationship. You’re going to have to do a lot of emotional labor, and you’re going to have to do it over and over again.
6. You Want to Give Them the Best Possible Chance to Change
I know this sounds kind of selfish, but it’s true. If you care about someone and want them to change, you have to be willing to give them a chance.
7. You keep dating narcissists because you’re a narcissist
I know you don’t like that. But the fact is, if you’re a narcissist, you’ll keep dating narcissists. You’ll keep dating narcissists because you don’t want to admit that you’re a narcissist.
You don’t want to admit that you’re a narcissist. So, you’ll keep dating narcissists.
It’s a vicious cycle
8. They’re Interesting
Yes, I know you shouldn’t keep dating narcissists, but it’s still hard not to. You might think you’re the only person they’ve met in their entire life, but you’re not. You have things in common with them.
You have common interests. You’re both attracted to the same things. You’re both interested in the same things.
They’re just as interesting as anyone else. They’re just as interesting as anyone else.
9. You think that you can change them
You probably think that you can change narcissists. I know I did.
But you can’t.
Narcissists will not change. They will only change when they are no longer getting what they want.
10. They have been in your life for years
You have been in their life for years. You have seen them at their worst and their best.
They have been there when you have had your worst day, and they have been there to cheer you up when you have had your best day. You have seen them at their best and their worst.
When you date Narcissists, you don’t think that you deserve better. It’s time to stop blaming yourself and start thinking about your choices. If you’ve ever dated a narcissist, you know how they can manipulate you into thinking they’re the only one in the relationship.
