Does he fly into a rage when you ask him simple questions?
Does he treat you badly and then disappear for days, only to reappear and act like nothing happened?
Does he (or she) say unbelievably hurtful things to you for no reason and when you tell him so, he says "you're overreacting" or "you're too emotional"?
Does he only keep his word when it applies to something he wants to do?
Do you feel confused, chaotic, and drained from being with him?
Chances are your man (or woman) is suffering from narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), a bona fide psychiatric disorder characterized in the American Psychiatric Association's bible, the DSM-IV. But don't take my word for it. Read Narcissistic Lovers by Cynthia Zayn and Kevin Dibble and see for yourself how your man compares to the many characteristics and examples in the book.
Narcissistic Lovers saved me from months of recovery after I was drained and discarded by an NPD after a 6-month involvement. I would say 6-month "relationship", but Zayn makes it very clear that one does not have a "relationship" with an NPD; it isn't possible. Ironically, the NPD even told me once that he wasn't trying to have a relationship with anybody (meaning me at the time). Of course, neither of us realized at the time that he was incapable of having a relationship with anyone anyway.
I read half a dozen self-help books on relationships before I finally came across Narcissistic Lovers. On every page I read the uncanny accuracy with which this book described my ex-boyfriend--the things he did and said, his habits and behaviors. It was as though the authors had eavesdropped on us.Read more ›
Straight from Hell, the narcissistic 'lover' will appear, to ruin your life.
The only person the narcissist loves is the narcissist himself (or herself).
You are a provider. Money. Sex. Nothing more.
The 'power' that the narcissist seems to have is that you do not know what the narcissist is doing to you. To your mind. To your heart.
Better to pay for this book than to pay a divorce lawyer.
The book is not clinical and probably does get carried away a little with the codependency angle, but I gained so much understanding about the past as well as the knowledge that there was nothing I could ever have done to make it work. That knowledge alone is very freeing! This book shouldn't be your only source for info on Narcissistic Personality Disorder, but it's a very affirming and informative place to start!
