I have to stop looking at my relationships the wrong way. In fact, its just plain stupid. It just never dawned on me to think of it another way before now. I suspect the problem goes alot deeper than that. When I got divorced at 30, I began a series of what I now realize were doomed from the start bad relationships with a series of EUM, commitment phobes and 1 narcissist. I spent some might say wasted 15 years blaming them, analyzing the hell out of their stuff and avoiding me and my stuff at all costs.
It took the devastation of the relationship with the narc to finally bitchslap me awake, but I am now and thankful for it. Thanks too, to Natalie and this site. The slaps in the face are much gentler and done with care here, but no less necessary.
This was a good one! Debra, another great comment. You can have boundaries, self-esteem, and perspective if your view extends beyond you. It is the narcissist within all of us that assumes everyone is in it, or being or doing for the reasons that we are. An important thing to know about assclowns and unavailables, which in itself helps us understand ourselves and know where we need to do some work:. Standing apart and knowing who you are, your values, beliefs etc and recognising when there is a disparity between you both is key.
Hi Nat, From all that I have learned on this site, I can say that this in my opinion, is such an incredibly valid point. I was totally guilty of this type of thinking — you said that it is the narcissist in all of us that has us thinking this way… I would like to add that it could be due in some circumstances to naivety, or ignorance as well.
So when I went out in the real world I was very green. I assumed others meant me no harm blah blah…. Live and learn though. Never assume someone has the same intentions, life goals, personality and so on. Again, this brings me back to the old Actions speak Louder than words mantra. Ok, what color was the sky in my world?! I can say that I have grown alot over the past year, am learning to love myself…. Natalie — What I am coming to accept and what you are very diplomatically and delicately saying is that like attracts like.
Maybe not with the full blown disorder but certainly with some strong tendencies. A painful and humbling admission. When it all fell apart, he kept saying he had nothing to apologize for because he thought I understood what the relationship was. That I wanted what he wanted casual, uncommitted, time-filler and that was why he never felt the need to talk about it.
In all the silence, I heard and saw what I wanted, he heard and saw what he wanted. For the past few months, the layers of denial have been slipping away. I know it needs to happen. I wish it had happened sooner. What scares me is that, in everything I have read about narcissists while I was focusing on him and his crap , it all says that under no circumstances can they change. If I am one, does that mean I cannot change? I feel I already have. I have been doing the work. I would hate to think that being devoid of empathy and caring only about myself is all I have to look forward to.
I am also willing to accept responsiblity for myself and my actions, another things narcs refuse to do. I admit it may take me a while to really see and accept my part, but I am getting better and accept it when I do. Boy, I am a mess! Why is it that some of the simplest things elude us until they are pointed out?
Big day, guaranteed success- if you — there s best free to help you? It was really hard to let him go. Yes, he is a "player". Hi Nikki, the whole discovery phase is key to better dating.

However, we all have a little bit of narcissism in all of us. However, the difference between us and them, is that when we realise empathy is needed, we can and will do it. You absolutely can change. I guess the point I wanted to make was that if she did something stupid that only hurt herself, that would be easier to deal with than something that hurts me and our kids.
Doing something stupid that only hurt herself would still hurt others in close proximity due to the ripple effect. Not taking others into consideration when taking actions that will in fact put the ripple effect in motion is exceedingly self centered and downright disrepectful and should never be tolerated. No one has the right to make a choice for another that they would not choose for themselves. Certainly not without disclosure and the option to opt out of the choice.
There is too much at risk emotionally and physically. This tells you alot about their character. Believe people when they show you who they are. Again another example of view of world not past the end of their nose.
I know I am out of place being a man on a site oriented towards women, but I find looking at things from this side to be quite interesting and educational. I think as long as we recognize it, and try to not let it take over our better selves, we will all be better off. Now he may have wanted an ego boost and company if he felt like it — but it WAS mostly sex. He kept disappearing and apologizing, thought he wanted to be with me because he kept on contacting me but really I was just being used to pass time with. Should have pulled the plug months earlier.
Your blog has really helped a lot. Hi Cherie, well done on 6 weeks.
Take this quiz to determine if One Direction, Forever in Your Mind, The Wanted, Citizen Four, New District or Why Don't We is for you!. There's nothing wrong with being single. But if you're wondering why you're not currently dating anyone, this quiz can help pinpoint the real.
That is my story exactly. He finally dumped me and guess what: NML — I am so guilty of Some would rather be in any relationship rather than no relationship. Love is not enough. Wanting them to change is not enough. Come crawling back on his hands and knees? Transform into a better man? You end a relationship to end a relationship, not to manipulate them into doing what you want.
The truth is that if you had accepted your decision instead of envying the new woman, you could have used the time to grieve the loss of the relationship, heal, and move on to a better relationship. My issue is not envy, I do not want to be in her shoes IF he is the same person he was with me. You have no idea why she has moved there. Maybe she puts up with less. Maybe she forced his hand. You are trying to rationalise the irrational and control the uncontrollable. Just remember past behaviour is a predictor of future behaviour.
Just because your ex has moved on does NOT mean he has changed. Thing is, it is just easier sometimes for people to just move on to someone new than face who they really are or have been. I also think that until you truly accept that the relationship is over you will continue with these thoughts — I know, I have been there and am still fighting my way through all this.
Just try to process that the relationship is over and move on, you deserve better. I know that feeling of worrying about them being better with the next person. I have been struggling with that with this last relationship I was in. Natalie gave me some much-needed advice on that in a previous post. This reminds me of something my ex-husband said to me, while we were in the process of divorce. He had shattered my trust too many times, and at that point, I was unwilling to risk trusting him yet again.
I have no idea if he is in a relationship now, since we have no mutual connections. But I would not presume to think that his new relationship is great, just because he has a new relationship.
Lots of people put up with crap. After all, I was one of them. Your post helped me remember this, and also helped me to look at my more current breakup a little more realistically. You are right not to trust him: He sees value in nobody but himself. He doesnt value anybody as a person. They are who they are, who they are, who they are. Like ourselves, they are the only ones who make a change. They are set in their ways. They will not change just because they found a new flavor of woman.
Trust me, i speak from experience. I did that and absolutely no good came of it! It was only when i got on with life and focused on myself that i was able to let him go.
Your gut instincts are exactly that: All the points are good and very true! But I have one question: Fact is, plenty of people are upfront about not being single…when asked. If they are asked and they continue to lie, they will still be exhibiting red flag behaviour. I always equated being pursued with the great happily ever after. I imagined myself being serenaded all the way to the alter, with me being the imperious prize.
Consequently I was always a sucker for the prince charming types. I was too busy living out my little fairytale in my head to bother about anything as vulgar as a red flag. Never occured to me that there is definitely no fool like an old fool until I met a selection of choice idiots. I teach high school and my adolescent pupils are much more sincere and responsible in their relationships than their dads and granddads [loved the story about your uncle,Nat].
And funny that the recent posts have been about gut instinct. The difference is these days I listen to it. Two days ago I posted that my gut was warning me about a guy I had recently met. Well again it was spot on. Another 50 year old idiot going on Before I would bury my head in the sand. Natalie is right that dating is discovery but I also laughed at the idea of a new guy showing up with a file on his dating history.
I think that when you start to see red flag behavior, on any level, even when they are not over their ex, have unresolved feelings for their ex, questions should be asked, and immediately. He said that he had made mistakes and then realised that he should probably start to live in the way his parents and grandparents had modelled around the values of marriage and hard work. He was tired of the messing others and himself around and decided he wanted success in the way his family had shown him, rather than in the way he had been allowed to as a good-looking, wealthy cad.
