When a narcissist senses your strong sense of confidence, he’ll back away.
Patti Wood, body language expert and author, says that narcissists tend to want someone “who is low in ‘harm avoidance’ and high in ‘cooperation.’" If you tend to give in easily to the wishes or demands of others at work or in your personal life for the sake of avoiding conflict, you might fit the ideal profile of a potential partner for a narcissist.
When you describe the surreal time you're having to friends, it feels like you're talking about a movie.
Yet, as the dating continues, you start to notice that it’s really all about him.
One big red flag that signals narcissistic behavior is never taking responsibility for any negative events in one's life.
Narcissists are known to play the victim when things don’t go their way, explains Patti Wood, and they will often blame their exes, bosses, and friends for anything negative that’s happened in the past.
