Checklist dating my daughter

Below I'm offering you a checklist to determine if your relationship carries these devastating traits.

You deserve to be loved and cherished, as do your children. I would only like to add that those of us raised by a narcissistic parent or parents are particularly vulnerable to being attracted to narcissistic partners.

I think this is because their NPD behaviors feel "familiar" to us, as in "of the family" and as in "repetition compulsion": we feel an urge to try and make the outcome turn out differently, this time.

I thought it was normal until my therapist finally said "why do you keep getting involved with all these jerks (narcissists). It's taken 4 months of no contact and a lot of introspection and healing to get him out of my system. He had to be excised, and I had to follow through with preventative care, much like chemo or radiation. To "January 2, 2015 - pm", I understand your pain and feel for you.

No contact with my 89 yr old Mom for about 4 yrs - I understand about her and her tragic childhood and forgive her but gee she still tries to destroy me within the family so... It might have saved me and my two young sons a world of grief. My sons, now 13 and 11, yelled "yes" to most every question on this checklist. Getting rid of the Narc from our lives was in the top 5 for them both. I had no idea what a narcissist was before I was lovebombed by mine. But was running through the above list of traits/behaviors in the context of your 8 month partner healthy for your 11 & 13 year old sons?

is used loosely these days, typically to indicate anyone who is vain and selfish, but the true personality disorder and its traits run much deeper, and carry long-term debilitating effects for those involved with such people.

If you were raised by a narcissistic parent or are in a relationship with a narcissist, you will likely feel more like an object to be used and manipulated to meet the narcissistic partner’s goals or needs.

That's a great and realistic list and I've spent a lot of time reading online and in books about narcissism.

I found myself substituting "mother" for partner in all of these statements - works the same.

I have faced the very painful, and real fact that he never, ever loved me. He used me, lied to me, made me feel like I was worthless, and put me through emotional hell, and he did so in such a way that I never saw it. It's amazing to see that every single one of these statements are true and to see how this type of personality grew right before my eyes, but I was too blind & scared to realize what was transpiring.

Perhaps I didn't want to, maybe I was too in love to realize that "saving my marriage" was a futile effort. I find it near impossible to trust guys, be it their intentions, or their feelings. What is someone to do when this type of behavior is also associated with master manipulation?

You eventually realize your partner does not see the you.
