'I Know Narcissists. Here Are Four Signs You're Dating One'
How to spot if you're dating a narcissist, and what to do about it
We all know that a toxic relationship where your partner makes you feel like there is something wrong with you. While most people who are living with a partner that blames them for everything want to believe that things can change, the truth is it rarely does, as you might be dating a narcissist. Narcissistic Personality Disorder NPD is not just a frustrating personality trait, and it needs to be diagnosed by a professional. However, there are a few signs that can be easily spotted. According to Tomko, they love to be right all the time and to know it all. According to Tomko, a narcissist will constantly insult your looks, your skills, your closest friends, your goals, and even the choices you make in the everyday life because they want to feel in control.

7 Signs of A Female Narcissist
It's easy to throw around the word "narcissist " around without really knowing what it means: Whether you're talking about Kim Kardashian's selfie obsession, Madonna comparing herself to Martin Luther King , or Kanye West, er, just being Kanye, it's easy to forget that genuine narcissistic behavior is a recognized mental condition. Sufferers of what's called narcissistic personality disorder aren't just vain; they're grandiose about themselves to the point of obsession, charmingly manipulative, and often have a sociopathic lack of empathy towards others. We still don't know where narcissism comes from: some psychologists link it to borderline personality disorder , others believe it conceals a serious lack of self-esteem something self-aware narcissists themselves dispute , and still others have linked it with neglect as children. The newest study thinks kids who are over-praised but under-loved as kids are most likely to become narcissists — but we're still essentially groping in the dark. Either way, understanding the origins of the disorder doesn't make having a relationship with a narcissist any more fun — and I should know.
I grew up with narcissists around me, and my struggles dealing with this led me to become a psychotherapist and life coach later in life. Only in recent years, after delving deeper into narcissism, have I discovered the full implications of interacting, on a personal and romantic level, with those who have narcissistic personality disorder NPD. Through my work, I am now helping others who are victims of narcissists. I trained as a psychotherapist, and though I primarily work as a life coach now, I have worked with clients who were looking to heal from their dysfunctional families and some who were in relationships with people who were displaying many signs of NPD. My awareness of NPD started with personal experiences, where I tried to find answers about my situation.
