10 Jun

The person who used to adore and worship you now fluctuates between needing you desperately and devaluing you.Perhaps as time goes on, the person who you thought cared so much becomes more emotionally unavailable, distant and cruel.If you don't do what they want, they are likely to get angry.That's the short explanation of the basics behind narcissistic personality disorder.How many red flags do you need in order to run away and save yourself? Time will tell, his mask will drop, that is why he is pushing for commitment, he wants to hook you before you see the real person under the facade.

The narcissist is usually well put-together, charming, intelligent, and focused on emerging in every social arena as superior.

He will reveal a few of his indiscretions and weaknesses so you feel safe being open and honest with him.

He wants to get to know you alright, just not for the reason you think.

This person is so into you and lavishes you with attention, romance and gifts.

The relationship moves very quickly and it feels like you have met "the one." Months down the road when things have settled in comfortably, things start to change.
