To those of you who aren’t unaware, a narcissistic personality disorder is a condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. This can be extremely difficult and sensitive to deal with, especially if it’s your own partner. You’ll have to make tons of sacrifices, some pretty unreasonable ones too, to make your relationship work. However, if you’re still up for it, we’ve always got your back! Today, we bring you a simple guide to help you deal with and handle a narcissist girlfriend -
You’ll need an immense amount of self-love and pampering to successfully go about dating a narcissist. It isn’t gonna be easy and you’ll find yourself being belittled in almost every instance. Practise self-care and inner peace to keep yourself sane throughout!
As they say, hear it from one ear and take it out from the other! Do NOT let their mean talks get to your heart. Narcissists say all that they can to uplift themselves and pull the other person down. It wouldn’t really bother them if they were hurting you. Hence, keep your calm and avoid letting their talks affect you and who you are.
A narcissist loves having the entire world revolve only around them. It doesn’t matter what’s happening around until they themselves are fit and fine. To cope with a narcissist, you’ll always have to make them the centre of attraction. Keep your conversations ONLY about them and do NOT ever appreciate or say a word about yourself.
Clearly, because they wouldn’t! No matter who’s wrong or who’s right, if you’re dating a narcissist you have to apologise to them instantly! Their egos would never allow them say sorry or feel apologetic. Hence, to sustain your relationship, you’ve gotta always ask for forgiveness.
Appearing needy or sick is just gonna make things about you, wouldn’t it? Hence, it is advisable to never act needful or anything that would make things about you. This takes them off from the spotlight which is bound to trigger them. Therefore, always keep it about them and never about you!
Sudden changes appear like a surprise to them! And surprises are something narcissist absolutely despise. Do NOT ever make drastic changes in your lives without confronting them beforehand. Be it in your personal life, or anything else, always make sure that they know FIRST even if you yourself don’t!
You cannot expect anything from a narcissist. Keep as fewer expectations as possible and don’t ever think that they’ll appreciate you or your efforts. Be as selfless as possible and don’t ever look forward to anything at all, if you’re dating a narcissist.
