• A narcissist may leave a partner if they find someone else who meets their needs better.
– Narcissists are always looking for someone to stroke their ego, and if they find another person that can do it better than you, then sayonara. It’s like when your favorite restaurant closes down because there’s a new one in town with fancier decor and tastier food.
• Narcissists are often unable to maintain long-term relationships due to their self-centered nature.
– Let’s be real here, the only thing that matters to a narcissist is themselves. They’ll never put anyone above them, even if it means sacrificing something important like love or loyalty. So don’t expect them to stick around for too long.
• If a narcissist feels threatened or criticized, they may leave the relationship as a defense mechanism.
– When you’re dating a narcissist, it’s best not to hurt their fragile little egos by pointing out any flaws or mistakes. Because once you do… BAM! They’re gone faster than Usain Bolt at the Olympics.
• Some narcissists may stay in a relationship for years while others will quickly move on once their needs aren’t being met.
– The length of time that a narcissist stays in a relationship depends solely on how much attention and admiration they receive from their partner. Once those things start dwindling down… see ya later alligator!
• Whether or not a narcissist leaves depends on many factors such as personality, circumstances and the other person’s behavior.
– There are so many variables involved when dealing with these walking contradictions known as “narcissists”. You could be doing everything right but still end up getting dumped because of some small detail that triggers them into thinking you’re no longer worth keeping around.
• Narcissists tend to see people as either all good or all bad, so if they start seeing their partner in negative light, they may leave.
– It’s like a light switch for them. One moment you’re the best thing that ever happened to them, and then suddenly they start seeing all these flaws in you that were there all along but didn’t matter before. And just like that… poof! They’re gone.
• If the narcissist feels like they are not getting enough attention or admiration from their partner, they may seek it elsewhere and eventually leave.
– Attention is like oxygen to a narcissist; without it, they can’t survive. So if you’re not giving them enough of it, don’t be surprised when they go looking for someone else who will.
• Some narcissists enjoy the thrill of chasing new partners and will often leave once the initial excitement wears off.
– Narcissists love starting new relationships because it gives them an opportunity to show off their charm and charisma. But once that honeymoon phase is over… well let’s just say things get real boring real fast.
• A narcissist’s decision to leave is ultimately up to them and can be unpredictable.
– Just when you think everything is going great with your narc bae, out of nowhere comes a curveball that leaves you scratching your head wondering what went wrong this time. The truth is… nothing went wrong (at least on your end). It’s just another day in the life of being with a self-absorbed human tornado.
• It is important for those in relationships with narcissists to prioritize their own well-being rather than waiting for the narcissist to make a decision about leaving.
– Don’t wait around hoping that one day your narco lover will magically turn into Prince Charming or Cinderella. Take care of yourself first because at the end of the day no one deserves emotional abuse masked as “love”.
