I dated a narcissist for 5 years on and off.
Off because he would get up and leave,
ignore me and then tell me had been to counselling and wanted to come back.
He is a master manipulator and at the time we got together I was in a very vulnerable place so was not my normal self and did not recognise what was going on.
His behaviour chipped away at me bit by bit and I ended up having a burn out and taking anti depressants.
With the help of friends,
a good psychiatrist and making sure I still achieved my goals in life (this was very difficult)
I have finally got rid of him.
I baited him so he would leave.
Telling him I wanted marriage and kids and I was tired of waiting.
I knew he would run and this time I shut the door behind him.
He has been trying to contact me and I am ignoring him.
I know he is on the hunt for another supply,
great pay back for me is that he is now 40,
not looking as good as he used to,
has no money,
no house and has gone home to live with his mother.
I have a business,
a house and my self esteem back.
To everyone dating a narcissist you have the power within yourself to not take their crap anymore and move on.
There are plenty of lovely people out there that will love you.
Love yourself and get rid of the N in your life.
