Are You A Self-Involved Couple?
Do you know any self-involved couples? They can be very difficult to be friends with. It’s great to make your partner a priority and cherish your relationship, but some couples go too far and it seems like their relationship is their whole world. Often, this happens when two people who were already either already narcissistic, codependent or a toxic combination of both come together. It’s funny because, when you see that someone has been in a relationship for several years, you might assume that only speaks good thing about their character. It must mean they’re stable and can commit, right? Um…sometimes their relationship just enables their inherent instability (like codependency issues and narcissism). Honestly, I adore my partner, and he is a top priority for me. But I am aware that there is a whole world outside my relationship. Some couples don’t seem to see that. Here are signs of a self-involved couple.
You make people come to you
Self-involved couples don’t go to things they’re invited to. If friends want to see them, they have to go to the couple’s home. They just really think that their little codependency dome is so wonderful that people must just love to visit them there. If they socialize, it tends to be in their own home. But they rarely go to the party/event they’re invited to.
