How do you tell at the beginning?

I am recently out of a relationship with a narcissist and it took me 4 years to realise what he really was.

I have just met a new man but am terrified he could be the same and don’t know how to find out as for the first 12-18 months my ex was wonderful, the perfect boyfriend before starting to really get controlling and abusive. ¬†How do you tell at the beginning someone is a narcissist as I really don’t want to live this again?

  1. I wish I could tell you – I’m not sure myself and that, my friend, is why I’m not dating yet. I don’t know how to protect myself and I’m not willing to get myself stripped to the core again. I would suggest you take this as slow as molasses, keep focusing on YOU and not THE RELATIONSHIP as center of your life. Don’t get serious for a long, long time. Just be serious about yourself and continuing to grow as a person. In time, a narc will not be able to stand your health. A real partner will support it. I think???? Good luck and God Bless!!!
