  • If you are with a true narcissist, there is nothing you can do. If you want a normal healthy relationship, you are going to have to find someone else.

  • it depends on what you goal with a Narcissist is. My SO is one and have learned to get my way I have to kiss a lot of butt, literally and figuratively some days! lol I treat him like a king and feed his ego; however, since I don't live with him it's easier for me to do. I pretend like I'm in a play and when he leaves the play is over. It takes a lot of energy. You can read about dealing with the narcissistic personality online (google it) and there are some good books. I found some great stuff in a book about Personality Disorders. It was only a chapter on Narcissicists but it was helpful. They can drain you that's for sure. I have to take breaks from him so am glad he's military and goes TDY a lot!
