5 Early Signs of Narcissism in a Boyfriend

1 – Love At First Sight- And Then It Isn’t

Narcissists usually start with a practice known as “love-bombing.” If he started to insist you were the one person he had been waiting for, the love of his life, or his soulmate shortly after you met, consider it a warning that he may be a narcissist.

Genuine love takes time to develop. It is impossible to love a person without knowing the person. In contrast, love-bombing is a way to manipulate you into a false sense of security, undeserved trust, and a too-fast relationship.

If he accomplishes these goals, though, you will soon notice his attitude and behavior toward you has changed.

Instead of his early approach that you are the perfect woman and his ideal mate, it will be a campaign of fault-finding, even if the faults are irrational or nonexistent.

Nearly everything you say and do, and almost everything about yourself, will be criticized, picked on, and insulted.

2 – Narcissists Do Not Have Empathy

Empathy validates another person’s experiences. It also shows the individual is capable of compassion and the ability to relate to other people. Narcissists do not have this characteristic.

Think of times you shared a negative experience and how your boyfriend reacted.

The experience could have been painful, sad, worrisome, or frightening. If he responded with boredom, ridicule, or anger, he is likely a narcissist.

You can also think of his reactions to other people. From abuse victims and suicides to individuals existing in poverty, he cannot care. He may even assert their situations were their fault.
