Seven Signs You're Dating A Narcissist

Sometimes men or women with narcissistic traits are easy to spot. You see the red flags on social media or you’ve heard the way they speak to someone close to them. However, it’s equally difficult to see those traits clearly if you are at the beginning of a relationship or have already given away pieces of your heart.

Narcissism is “extreme self-involvement to the degree that it makes a person ignore the needs of those around them.” Narcissists are brilliant at camouflaging behavior until they have complete control over the relationship, and by then shame, guilt, and embarrassment can creep in making it difficult to leave.

In light of Dating Violence Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness month, we wanted to share some of the key warning signs of narcissistic behavior and emotional abuse. Whether you suspect that you are in a relationship with a narcissist or you simply want to be armed with knowledge, this list is for you.
