Are narcissists jealous when you move on
10 things that happen when a narcissist sees you with someone else
Have you stopped dating a narcissist?
Well, in that case, it’s probably time to say congratulations and you dodged a bullet, right?
But what happens when they see you with someone else?
Here are 10 things that happen, so that you can be prepared!
1) They don’t believe you’ve moved on
Narcissists are so convinced of their own superiority they can’t imagine why anyone would leave them.
When they see you with someone else, they won’t believe it!
They’ll tell themselves the person you’re with is just a friend, and that you’re still in love with him or her.
They’ll call your phone all the time to get your attention, message you on Facebook (or other social media sites), and show up at places where they know you’ll be.
All that to prove to themselves that there is no chance you’ve moved on from them.
2) They’ll try to pit you two against each other
One of the things that narcissists do is purposefully try to pit other people against each other.
They’ll try to make you think less of the person you’re dating, or they’ll try to set the two of you against each other on purpose.
They’ll act like they’re trying to help, but it’s only so that they can watch the drama unfold.
You see, narcissists will do whatever they can to sabotage your new relationship.
Either they still don’t believe you’ve moved on, or they are just jealous.
Be careful with this one.
Narcissists are extremely witty when it comes to manipulation and sabotage, so make sure you and your partner are communicating effectively and keeping the narcissist out of your life as well as you can.
Don’t let them pit you against each other!
Narcissists who can’t handle seeing their ex with someone new are going to do whatever it takes to get back together with their ex.
They’ll use any tactics necessary to break up another potential relationship or make sure no one interests their ex.
A narcissist wants nothing more than to ruin your happiness, so they’ll try everything possible.
Narcissists hate feeling like they don’t control what’s happening in your life, so when they see you happy with someone else, they’re going to do whatever it takes to destroy that happiness; including telling lies and spreading gossip about the person you’re dating!
Having had a past with this person, evading that manipulation might not be an easy task.
After all, you probably got into a dynamic where your ex was holding power over you in some sort of way.
3) They’ll act jealous
If you’ve had to break up with a narcissist, this one should come as no surprise.
Anyone who has witnessed the wrath of a person in the throes of jealousy knows it can be brutal.
For a person who is narcissistic, their self-esteem is often tied to your relationship with them.
When they see that you have moved on and are now dating someone else, they will feel jealous and threatened.
They may act out by sending passive-aggressive texts or calls that make you question if they are still interested or not.
Make it clear to your ex-partner that things are over and that there is no chance of you getting back together.
What they will do in their jealousy is always dependent on the person, but make sure to not rub your relationship in their face too much in order to trigger them.
You don’t want to make the situation worse than it has to be.
4) They’ll become very possessive
If you have an ex with a narcissistic personality, then there’s a good chance that they’ve been very possessive of you in the past.
They may have liked to control what you do and who you talk to and spend time with.
At one point, this might have made you feel special or wanted; now it just makes things difficult.
If they see you on a date with someone else and start to call, text, or email excessively, it could be hard for them to understand that you can live your life without them in it.
They may get angry about this new person in your life and try to make their anger known by getting really possessive or even violent if the situation escalates.
It is important to be prepared for their reaction before dating someone else because it can quickly become annoying when they don’t get what they want.
Their possessiveness could reach levels that you didn’t even think possible, so make it clear to them that you are no longer their concern.
5) They’ll start rumors
Narcissists are masters at spreading rumors and lies.
They’ll try to tear your new relationship apart, by spreading false rumors about your partner.
They’ll tell people that you’re too young for him or her, or that they aren’t good enough for you.
Simply put, they’ll try to make your partner look bad in the eyes of the people around them.
Be careful with this one.
Narcissists don’t just want to get you back, they want everyone to know how much better of a person they are than you are, and they will do whatever it takes to prove it.
The rumor mill will churn and the narcissist will eagerly spread these stories to anyone who will listen.
Make sure to talk to the people close to you.
If they are your friends, then this is nothing to really worry about.
After all, they’ll know you and they’ll know about your ex’s narcissistic tendencies.
6) They’ll call you non-stop
One of the first things that a narcissist will do when they see you with someone else is calling you non-stop.
Their possessiveness is coming through and you will not be able to get a break.
In this situation, it’s hard to choose what to do.
Of course, you could talk to them, but that might just motivate them even more to call.
Instead, send them to voicemail or block them completely.
It’s time to move on and focus on your new relationship.
Think about it: your partner is probably not very happy about the fact that your ex is calling non-stop.
Focus on them and try to forget about your narcissistic ex.
7) They’ll start acting crazy and erratic
The truth is, narcissists are always crazy and erratic – but when they see you with someone else, it really shows.
They’ll start acting like they’re the most important person in your life, which is a total lie.
It can be hard to break free from their clingy behavior, but that’s what you need to do.
They may also start accusing you of cheating on them and they’ll show up at places where they know you’ll be.
They might even try to make a scene in front of your new boyfriend or girlfriend!
Narcissists don’t care who knows how crazy they are – and that means they can really take it to the extremes sometimes.
They might stalk you or yell at you, anything to get your attention.
Don’t do them that favor.
Try to ignore this person as best as you possibly can, given the circumstances.
8) They promise to become a better person
When a narcissist sees you with someone else, they might want to change themselves to win you back.
They may promise to be a better person and make amends for their past actions.
Turns out they may even go as far as saying that the other person is really just “inferior” and doesn’t deserve you.
The idea is that if the other person was so bad for you, then maybe the narcissist can be “good enough.”
I know, after a long relationship you might feel inclined to believe them, but don’t!
Narcissism is extremely hard to work on, and unless they are actively in therapy, working through all of their issues, nothing has changed.
Focus on your new, much healthier relationship, and don’t listen to the empty promises of your ex.
9) They pretend it doesn’t bother them
When they see you with someone else, they pretend that it doesn’t bother them.
This is because their pride makes them want to seem nonchalant about your new relationship.
But the reality is that it bothers them to the core and their mind will be racing with thoughts of how this person is better than them.
You see, this one is probably the best-case scenario because you won’t really notice it.
They act like they don’t care about your new relationship, so you can move on now.
However, oftentimes this behavior is followed by one of the previous ones when they finally crack and can’t take the thought of you with someone else anymore.
10) They are hurt that you’ve moved on
Narcissists will often not show any emotion when they see you with someone else.
They won’t say anything or make any comments. But that doesn’t mean they’re not hurting on the inside.
They might be feeling sad, jealous, and even angry when they see you with someone else.
Narcissists are usually very clingy, so it can hurt them to know you’ve moved on.
You see, no matter what they try to show you, nothing hurts a narcissist more than knowing that they have no more grip on you and you don’t care about them anymore.
This is like salt to the wound for them.
No matter where you are in this situation, remember that breaking up with a narcissist is good riddance.
You deserve someone who loves you for who you are and who doesn’t manipulate you.
Remember that you did the right thing and that life will only get easier from here on out.
Focus on your new relationship and the happiness that comes with that!
Love yourself first and everything else falls into place
It may sound conceited or narcissistic to focus on loving yourself first. But it’s not.
The point isn’t to believe you’re better than others or to accept things about yourself that you really do need to change.
It’s about developing a healthy and nurturing relationship with… you!
Loving yourself is about committing to who you are, understanding the many different nuances to your identity, and showing yourself a level of care and intimacy that we usually reserve for other people.
Unfortunately, we’re not taught how to love ourselves from an early age. And we end up caring about what others think of us rather than focusing on what we need at a more fundamental level.
This is why we partnered with Rudá Iandê to produce a free masterclass on transforming our relationships through the practice of self-love.
It’s currently playing on The Vessel (one of our partners) but only for a limited time.
<< The Art of Love & Intimacy with Rudá Iandê >>
Thousands have attended and told us that the masterclass has completely transformed their relationships for the better.
It’s a must-watch and we couldn’t recommend it more highly.
Why Do Narcissists Get Jealous? The Narcissist and Jealousy
Robert A. Heinlein, in his book Time Enough for Love, famously said (via his character, Lazarus Long) “A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity.”
If he was right, that would make narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) an interesting case when it comes to jealousy.
Narcissists are often competent in many areas of life, often doing well in the dog-eat-dog capitalist world. And they often appear to be extremely self-confident.
On the other hand, self-confidence, arrogance, the self-assuredness, often mask very fragile self-esteem.
The confidence is a front – it’s intended to cover up exactly the kind of neurotic insecurity that Heinlein is talking about here.
So would NPD make people more likely to become jealous, or less? And if it did make people feel more jealous, what would trigger it? Let’s explore why do narcissists get jealous?

- Why do Narcissists try to make you Jealous on Social Media?
Do Narcissists “Feel” jealous?
Before we go on, it’s important to point out the difference between jealousy and envy. Although these are similar emotions, they’re not the same:
Envy is an unpleasant feeling we experience when someone else has something we want.
So maybe you see someone with a nicer car than you or a better relationship.
They remind you of what you don’t have – something you crave. So you begin to feel a little negatively towards that person. That’s envy.
Jealousy is the emotional response to losing, or feeling we might lose, something we already have.
For example, if you see your partner dancing with someone else, you might feel jealous of that person because they are taking your partner’s attention away from you.
Maybe you worry they’ll steal your partner from you completely. That’s jealousy.
Now, it has long been thought that there’s a connection between narcissism and envy.
In fact, Mayoclinic even lists a symptom of NPD as being “envious of others and believing others envy them.” But what about jealousy?
If you ever find yourself wondering if narcissists feel or experience any particular thing, the answer is almost always “yes.”
Narcissists think and act in ways that are counter-intuitive, so it can be tempting to see them as inhuman. However, they are human.
They experience the same range of emotions as non-narcissists (except in rare cases, and this would usually be in combination with other psychological disorders).
It’s just that in narcissists, emotions are triggered by different things, and they may be stronger or weaker than you’d normally expect someone to experience in a given situation.
What Makes a Narcissist Jealous?
A study in 2016 investigated the triggers behind jealousy in narcissists. They were specifically looking into romantic relationships, and found two key reasons – entitlement, and self-esteem.
The interesting thing here is that they found a reverse relationship. In other words, the lower the self-esteem and sense of entitlement of the narcissist, the higher the degree of jealousy.
If you think about it, there’s some logic there. For one thing, it backs up what Heinlein was proposing earlier – that insecurity is a breeding ground for jealousy.
But entitlement makes sense too – if you live in a fantasy world where you’re entitled to have anything you want – including other people – why would you have any fear of losing them?
Do Narcissists Get Jealous Easily?
If this study is right, the tendency for narcissists to experience jealousy may depend greatly on their emotional state.
Unfortunately, as you may have experienced, the narcissist’s emotional state is a volatile thing.
People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder can lash out at things that were not in any way intended to cause injury – typically when the gap between the front they put on and their true self underneath is exposed.
This is called a narcissistic injury, and it’s likely to leave the narcissist in a low self-esteem state. So after a narcissistic injury, we might expect narcissists to be more prone to jealousy.
However, another factor here might be the type of narcissist you’re dealing with. Narcissism isn’t a single disorder, and psychologists sometimes break it down into two types:
- Grandiose narcissism: this is the “classic” narcissist, who fits the stereotype of the disorder – socially fearless, confident, self-aggrandizing, etc. This is the most likely type to actually seem “like a narcissist”.
- Vulnerable narcissism: Vulnerable Narcissism is similar on the inside to the grandiose narcissist – they still think they are special, and better than other people. However, their “true” low self-esteem self tends to shine through more. They may appear shy and reserved at first, but their narcissism will become apparent after you spend some time with them.
A study in 2020 also investigated the impact of these two forms of narcissism on the tendency to experience jealousy – and they also looked at how this tied into psychological abuse.
Their results showed that grandiose narcissists experienced less jealousy than the vulnerable narcissists – although both types had a tendency toward psychologically abusing their romantic partners.
If you’ve ever been in a relationship with a narcissist, this latter point will not come as much surprise.
However, they found that for vulnerable narcissists, jealousy was a major risk factor in them carrying out the abuse.
So according to this study, the motivation behind the abuse is a little different.
Grandiose narcissists abuse for the standard reasons – to gain control, maintain dominance, or boost their own self-esteem.
They may experience jealousy, but it’s not a major occurrence for them, at least when they’re in a good mood.
But vulnerable narcissists are a little different. They are highly sensitive to threats to the relationship, and because of this they do get jealous easily.
And unfortunately, when they do, they are liable to lash out at their partner. This is not the only reason they might become abusive, but it is a trigger.
Are Narcissists Jealous of Their Victims?
A common question people have is whether narcissists are jealous of their victims – the idea here is that jealousy towards a person might lead them to be abusive towards them.
The first point is to remember the distinction between jealousy and envy. In this case, it’s not really jealousy we’re talking about. We’re asking: do narcissists envy their victims?
This is indeed possible. Envy of other people’s successes can trigger a narcissistic injury:
- The narcissistic mother, watching her daughter go through the youthful stage of life that she’s long since left behind
- The narcissistic husband, after his wife succeeds in achieving a promotion
- The narcissistic manager, whose team member received recognition and praise from the CEO
It’s not just the event itself (e.g., the promotion) that can trigger envy in the narcissist – although that’s likely part of it – but the fact that it takes the attention away from them.
This is compounded by the fact that some narcissists lack empathy, which makes it difficult for them to feel and share in the joy their victim’s experience.
Some common signs that a narcissist is envious of their victim include:
- They praise your for your success initially, but are unable to keep up the act for long and soon lose interest in talking about it
- They try to out-do or one-up your achievements or accomplishments
- They downplay your achievements and positive traits, especially if they are things that the narcissists want themselves. They may say you were lucky to get the promotion, or that the new role isn’t that great anyway
- In severe cases, they may attempt subterfuge – to subtly undermine your efforts at success (for example, putting you down on the day of an interview)
Do Narcissists Get Jealous When You Move On?
A relationship with a narcissist can be a bumpy ride. And leaving one can be just as difficult.
Remember, narcissists, need a supply of attention and admiration to maintain their self-esteem.
They also often see relationships in a transactional way – that is, in terms of what they can get out of them.
So if they are in a relationship with you, it is likely that this is because they are still getting their narcissistic supply from you. If you leave them, you are cutting off that supply.
This is not the same thing as jealousy, but if you were leaving to be with another person, that could quite possibly trigger jealousy, just as it would in any other person.
Whether the narcissist gets jealous when you move on or not, the response may be very similar in any case.
As Dr. Judith Orloff of the University of California told The Independent, if you do decide to move on, expect pleading, manipulation, and promises to change (all likely to be tricks, Dr. Orloff says). They may even become abusive.
Can you make a narcissist jealous?
You may be thinking here, why not deliberately take steps to trigger jealousy in a narcissist?
Perhaps you think this could be payback for the way they have treated you.
As we’ve seen, if you want to know how to make a narcissist jealous, you need to look no further than things that make non-narcissists jealous.
Generally speaking, that means triggering a fear of losing something that they have, particularly when their self-esteem is down. A few points here.
Firstly, be wary of dropping yourself to the level of your abuser, and becoming one yourself.
As difficult as it can be to deal with a narcissist, NPD is a mental illness. However tempting or justifiable it may seem at the time, you may find yourself regretting these actions in the future.
Secondly, it’s not a wise course of action. Many narcissists live their whole lives acting out cycles of manipulation and abuse.
You won’t be able to beat them at their own game, and if they realize that you are deliberately playing games, you might accidentally provide them with their narcissistic supply (they’ll think it shows you care).
Thirdly, as we’ve seen, vulnerable narcissists may respond to jealousy with abuse.
Narcissists suffer from a mental disorders, which means they often act in an emotional and reactive way. It’s best not to play with fire.
Why is the Narcissist Making Me Jealous?
A large number of studies have shown that if you’re asking this question about a relationship partner, you’re not alone.
Researchers even have a name for it: relationship-threatening behavior.
In the case of narcissists, this type of behavior is usually designed to make you think they are interested in someone else.
For example, a narcissist may flirt or dance with a relationship rival. They may strike up a platonic friendship with someone, perhaps someone very attractive, or who has some other appealing quality.
They’ll spend time with their new friend – with or without you present – and speak about them often – in warm, glowing terms.
While psychologists have known for some time that narcissists do this, the reasons they do it are less clear. However, a study at the University of Alabama in 2017 tried to figure this out.
They gave nearly 300 participants a series of questionnaires. One measured their level of two forms of narcissism – grandiose narcissism and vulnerable narcissism, which we discussed earlier.
They gave follow-up questionnaires to measure how often people used relationship-threatening behaviors, and importantly, why.
The results showed a difference between the two varieties of narcissists.
Grandiose narcissists make their partners feel jealous to gain more power and control over them.
Vulnerable narcissists were a little less focused in their motivations – they do it to gain power and control too, but they also have other motives:
- Revenge: if you have done something to upset them (which can be easy to do), they may try to make you feel jealous as a form of revenge.
- Self-esteem: if you feel jealous of them, they must be important to you in some way. So your jealousy gives them a little boost to their low self-esteem.
- Testing the relationship: as narcissists often lack empathy, it’s difficult for them to know how you feel. To get this understanding, they may have to trigger a more obvious reaction from you.
- Security: they may also be seeking reassurance that you have a strong relationship. This is a bit like driving into a wall just to see how safe your car is. But narcissists’ actions are often emotional rather than calmly reasoned out.
Why do Narcissists try to make you Jealous on Social Media?
Of all the tools that narcissists might employ in their relationship-threatening behavior, social media is a favorite.
For example, they might post public messages that compliment or flatter someone that they think you’re jealous of, or post photos of themselves spending time with relationship rivals.
The reason narcissists love these methods isn’t completely clear, but it probably just boils down to the fact that they love social media in general.
This is well-known to psychologists – over 57 studies found that narcissists tend to use social media more than non-narcissists.
Dr. Gwendolyn Seidman, a psychologist who researches narcissism, points out the (perhaps obvious) reason for this – it gives them a way to show off!
So narcissists probably try to make you jealous on social media simply because they use social media a lot anyway, and because it’s easy way to get an audience.

27 Most Outstanding Signs of a Narcissist Woman
Beautiful, smart, elegant, charming… Vengeful, self-centered, cruel, jealous… Who is it all about? This is about narcissistic women who are among us and with whom it is difficult to build relationships.
Do you know such a woman? She may be a narcissist.
Women - narcissists are often overlooked .
Because they display the same behaviors as typical teenage girls, female narcissists can go unnoticed and be mistaken for an "angry girl" or adult woman.
It is often assumed that angry girls grow out of their bad behavior, but habits such as gossiping, excluding other people, and sabotaging relationships may be more common among women with existing narcissistic traits.
Dominant female narcissists are almost as much of a threat as their male counterparts, but women have some protection through stereotypes such as "nice young girl", "caring mother" and "kind grandmother".
Nobody thinks that a nice old woman can be vindictive, threatening and ruthless.
People also do not expect mothers of to be so self-centered that they will be ready to abandon or abuse their children.
The difference between female and male narcissists is that women tend to compete with other women for supremacy, while narcissists - men use their charm and appearance to achieve their goals.
In truth, female narcissists never "outgrow" their childhood behavior.
Instead, they develop more effective aggressive behavior as adults, using their manipulative traits to further their selfish plans and exploit others.
How to deal with a female narcissist
There are two types of female narcissists: vulnerable narcissists and grandiose narcissists .
Whether you are dealing with vulnerable narcissist or a more serious, grandiose type, you need to understand where their behavior comes from, which is usually a feeling of self-doubt.
When you find yourself face to face with a narcissist, don't let yourself be led astray. You can lose your sense of purpose when the narcissist tries to take center stage.
But the truth is, you don't have to pay attention to everything this person does. He does this to get your attention.
Try not to engage in passive-aggressive manipulation and not allow yourself to be drawn into outright ugliness. Try to remain calm, understanding that you will not be able to go far trying to change this person or reason with him.
You may need to find a balance between moving forward towards your goals and reducing the narcissist's insecurities, but still keep your own well-being as a top priority.
If you are dealing with grand narcissist you may want to acknowledge his feelings, but eventually leave if you can.
This can be difficult to do if the female narcissist is a member of your family, but you can set boundaries that will help you maintain dignity and emotional well-being. Just keep in mind that she can ignore your boundaries and do as she pleases.
Narcissistic Women and Relationships
Research has shown that both partners exhibit more angry behavior when the woman in the couple is narcissistic.
Men tend to show more anger when they have to interact with a female narcissist, but the level of a man's narcissism has nothing to do with such behavior.
This suggests that narcissistic women over are hostile in relationships, which in turn causes their partners to exhibit more hostile and angry behavior during the interaction.
This creates a pattern of emotionally abusive behavior that will inevitably destroy trust and happiness in relationships.
Why are narcissistic women so cruel?
Cruelty may be the result of the narcissist's withdrawal from the situation.
This usually shows up when the narcissist is under a lot of stress, such as when he gets into an argument with his partner.
The moment they have negative feelings for their partner, they separate themselves from any positive feelings for him.
This is black and white thinking because the narcissist sees his partner as either completely good or completely bad.
The narcissist becomes like a hysterical child, unable to see or feel anything other than the great anger or frustration she feels.
Do you think there can be a woman-narcissist in your life? Let's look at the traits of narcissists so you know for sure.

Can women be narcissists?
And female narcissists can be just as toxic and dangerous as male narcissists!
In ancient Greek mythology, there is a legend about Narcissus - a beautiful young man who loved to admire his reflection in the waters of the stream so much that he rejected the love of the nymph Echo. As punishment for this, he was doomed to fall in love with his own reflection. As a result, Narcissus turned into a flower, which was named after him.
So, in ancient times, narcissism (a character trait that consists in excessive narcissism and inflated self-esteem) was associated with men. However, female narcissists are just as common. Moreover, they are no less “talented”: they are able to love only themselves, selfish and cruel.
But do not hasten to accuse them of cunning and meanness. In fact, they are just sick people. Although at the same time cunning and mean.
Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder that is not always immediately apparent. But such a person is simply not able to think (let alone care) about others. For such a woman, there is only one Queen in the world - she herself. And all the rest - so-so, servants at the palace of Her Majesty.
So, what are narcissistic women like?
First of all, they are too self-absorbed, very vain, completely devoid of sympathy and empathy. They are also very jealous and domineering.
Women-narcissists consider other people exclusively as an object of exploitation. “How can he (she) be useful to me?” – such is their approach to communication.
Not only colleagues or acquaintances, but also the closest people stay in their "slavery": friends, partners and even their own children.
By the way, this type of women is very resourceful. They can successfully pretend to be caring and sweet, although at heart they are real witches: cruel, vengeful, ruthless and insidious. They make the most talented and cruel abusers who use physical and psychological violence.
It is very easy to fall into the web of such people, be it a man or a woman.
But getting out is already quite difficult. Especially if you are in love or believe in their fake words. Therefore, the best thing is to try to bypass such ladies on the tenth road. And in order not to accidentally fall into a trap, study their habits and tricks.

1. They are simply obsessed with their appearance
For a narcissist woman, her appearance is the most important thing on Earth. This applies to literally everything: the volume of the waist, hair styling, makeup, clothes, shoes. They are frequenters of beauty salons and boutiques, constantly experimenting and trying new creams and masks.
For narcissists, the idea that someone else can look more stunning than them is unbearable. They are ready to tear the competitor into small pieces. And how many photos they have on Instagram and other social networks - just do not count. They maniacally count each “like” under the pictures, take pictures of themselves every minute in a variety of poses and unexpected places. It seems that if you take away the selfie stick from them, life will collapse!
2. The word “no” doesn't exist for them.
They can't imagine for a second that they can be wrong. Just a hint that a narcissist woman did or said something wrong is enough to make her hate you for the rest of her life.
If she asked for something, then the answer "no" is simply impossible. To her, it's like you putting a knife in her back. How can you refuse something to the Queen? You must give all the money, sell your soul, die ... but follow the order!
3. They have the right to flirt with everyone, but their partner - never with anyone
This type of woman flirts almost around the clock. After all, for them it is a chance to impress, to attract attention, to prove that they are the best. And, of course, once again admire yourself. At the same time, they use their sexuality and charm for one more purpose - to make everyone do what they want. That is, for their own selfish purposes.
But a woman-narcissist does not allow her partner to even take a step to the side. How can you look at anyone other than Their Majesty?!
4. They almost never apologize
A narcissist woman is sincerely convinced of her holiness and infallibility, therefore she never admits her mistakes and mistakes. If she offended and insulted you, then you should have done so. If you change, it's your own fault. If you cheated, you misunderstood because of your own stupidity.
That is, the result is the same: no matter what a narcissist woman does, she will answer you. Better yet, apologize!
5. They lack empathy
Empathy and a female narcissist are mutually exclusive. She's focused solely on herself.
She is not up to your sufferings and hardships! On the contrary, your troubles only irritate her and provoke aggression.
Such women will easily pass by someone else's misfortune and won't even stop. What for? This does not concern them!
But when they need help and you don't react with lightning speed, you will hear curses and accusations of heartlessness. Really, how can you not help the Queen?
6. They do not talk or communicate, they are manipulative
The ego of narcissistic women is so painful that they do not trust anyone and do not sincerely talk to anyone. Nevertheless, they manipulate simply masterfully.
Communication for them is just a way with which you can so deftly twist other people so that they do what the narcissist woman wants.
The saddest thing is that they do it very well... Unsuspecting interlocutors literally from the first minutes of communication turn into "obedient slaves".
So, you have read 6 very disturbing signs that may indicate that you are facing a female narcissist.
Calculating it is not always easy, but possible. No matter how she pretends and hides her true intentions, sooner or later the truth will come out.
