When it comes to being in a relationship with a narcissist, it’s difficult to find any real intimacy because everything is about your functionality in their life. Narcissists can love only on a superficial level. As long as you are doing what they think you are supposed to be doing, all is well (and when i say ‘well’ I mean they get what they want and you stay unsatisfied, unseen and unheard.) The moment you deny them exactly what they want, look out! They will explode, get mean and do just about anything to get you back in line with their plan. If you don’t comply, they will leave.

Actions and conversations with a narcissist all revolve around building them up, even when it’s “about you,” it’s really about them – they get to “show you off to their friends.” That isn’t about you at all. It’s about their ego and how you make them look.

Divorcing a Narcissist. Narcissists should come with warning labels

8 Red Flags That You May Be Dating a Narcissist Like The One I Married.

I happen to be somewhat of an expert when it comes to narcissists. At the age of 26, I was swept off my feet by a modern day Prince Charming. We met at a lake and within weeks he began to shower me with gifts, flowers, poems, expensive vacations, shopping sprees and affection. I was naïve and from a small town, and I was sold on everything that was presented to me.

After divorcing the Narcissist that she was married to, Tina Swithin went on to write a number of books to try and help others. If you are presently going thru (or are seriously contemplating) a divorce from your Narcissistic other, might I suggest that Tina Swithin‘s books could offer you insight from the battle trenches, from someone who has been there and gone thru that Hell.

Divorce of any kind is far from pleasant. Divorcing someone with NPD is in a separate league of it’s own and can be full of unexpected surprises and unpleasant turmoil.

One last quote from the above article posted on the xojane website:

“While our marriage was horrible, our divorce has been a nightmare that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.”

The following quote is from the Amazon.com page for Tina’s 1st book:

“Tina soon discovered that there is only one thing more difficult than being married to a narcissist and that is divorcing a narcissist.”
