What you probably don’t know is that the charmer who once called a lot to see how you were feeling or the man who used to be on time – all the time – was fooling you. Take a peek at these 10 Signs That You May Be Dating A Narcissist. Save yourself the heartache.
Okay, we are in the era of selfies – however, a man who thinks of himself only may exhibit signs of narcissism. There is no problem with self-love, however, when your mate only sees themselves in the mirror in all aspects of their life – you may have a problem on your hands.
We all have secrets we don’t want to share. Maybe we hail from a dark past or don’t want to scare our partner away with our issues. However, if your mate is tight-lipped about just about everything – they may have some really fragile skeletons in their closet.
Face Tells A Different Story
They say a picture is worth a million words. Look at your partner in the eye – what story can you see? If your partner is truly hard to read – it may be time to back off a bit.
Hmmm…No Clear Family History
So you never met his mother or his father. He notes that his brother is a bit off. For some reason, it is difficult to connect with anyone in his circle. Sure he could be hiding you, however, there could be some real drama that you may or may not be privy to. A true narcissist keeps people divided so you can never put together their pieces.

Very Charming In The Beginning
Well look at that…the narcissist shows up with flowers and cards just when you need them. A true narcissist is super charming in the beginning, but once they get comfortable, they start the devaluation stage – which usually leads to a rapid breakup when the union gets too mundane for their taste – or at least they will stop with all of the relationship perks.
Emotionally Detached and Hates Conflict
The one thing about a narcissist is that they hate conflict – more or less because they hate to be exposed. A narcissist usually have boiling hot temperatures under their cool and collective personalities, so be very careful when drilling up drama.
Making plans with a narcissist is like pulling teeth. A true trait includes a person who doesn’t value your time, feelings or expectations. They just can’t see how important date night is to you or the importance of quality time. Simply, they are not built for things that require a real commitment.
