Most of the people you get involved with will fall far short of this full-blown personality disorder, but there are definitely people out there who have unjustifiably high self-esteem, and they are terrible relationship risks.
The narcissist will be worried about how you will make them look plus the added effort of having to find another person to abuse.
As long as you react-in any way-the narcissist will always come back (whenever there is a lapse in whatever supply he’s replaced you with).
Do not underestimate the patience of the narcissist; he will wait to come back until the most convenient time to return.
He will return without offering an apology or explanation. the thrill of power- of conquering and controlling.
When his narcisstic supplies run out, rest assured, he will be knocking at your door.
He may suddenly soften toward you, he may seem sweet and probably even claim that he will change for you.
