With Narcissism being the buzzword all over the media these days, there are thousands of websites which offer dating advice on how to avoid Narcissists.
However, after a while, the articles all start to look the same…rehashing the DSM criteria, reciting how self-centered Narcissists are and how they’re always the center of attention. Frankly, readers often come away more confused after searching for dating advice as it pertains to detecting disordered personalities.
Since people are generally on their best behavior during early dating, how can you really know if someone is a Narcissist, or just trying to make a good impression?
There are many things to be cautious of when avoiding narcissists in the dating arena, but in this video, I share five top red flags to be on the lookout for so you can avoid users, losers, and abusers.
Loneliness can sometimes drive us to make quick connections with people, but it’s important to remember that in reality, if you’ve just started dating someone, you barely know them. All you see is what they want you to see.
Make a rule not to be intimate with anyone until you know more about them. This helps increase the chances of the relationship being built on a solid foundation.
Let the relationship flow naturally without jumping into a commitment too quickly. If you feel clingy, needy, or experience intense trauma triggers, you’re not ready for a relationship yet.
