Last updated by Katie M.

Let’s be honest, people with narcissistic personalities are very smooth operators and absolutely fantastic at what they do. Whether it’s in real life or behind a screen, these folks are experts in getting what they want and aren’t afraid to step on a few toes to accomplish their aims. Because they are so skillful in the art of deception, when it comes to dating, their love-bombing can actually be interpreted as caring and enthusiastic interest. Although, once you’ve fallen victim to these sorts of vultures once, you’ll know that certain red flags even appear in the texting stage of a relationship.

Modern dating is a whole new game, what with its endless apps and websites, it has undeniably changed the way we meet people. Gone are the days when we ended up marrying the boy down the road because now, our thumbs seem to be obsessed with swiping and attributing mega likes to pictures of faces we’ve never actually even seen before. Now, I can’t sing its praises enough, but the one thing that doesn’t reassure me is that it provides the perfect cover for narcissists. Yes, you know, those vampire-like personalities who love to manipulate you for their own entertainment. Well, thanks to the creation of dating apps and websites, they are able to dissimulate themselves amongst genuine people looking for love, plus they won’t hesitate to woo you in order to get what they want. This is why identifying these dangerous personalities is essential because after all, no one wants to slip into their grasp...

Are you afraid you are texting a narcissist? These 5 signs will confirm your fears

1) They never ask you how you are

Although they may feign an interest in you and your life at the beginning, the novelty of you will soon wear off for them, and you’ll end up only ever talking about them. Narcissists love the limelight and will never turn down an opportunity to tell tall tales about their amazing lives and how successful they are. In short, when you text your crush, you don’t exist and your conversations are no doubt very one-sided. Plus, they’ll never really even bother to check in on your feelings.

2) They blow hot and cold

If one minute they are all over you, smothering you with compliments and being cute, and in the next instant they ghost you, then alarm bells should be ringing at a deafening volume. These vindictive personalities only see their romantic interests and playthings, which explains why they often change the intensity of their commitment. The upshot is that if someone, who in their eyes is better, comes along, then they certainly won’t hang around for too long.

3) They need to be in control

People with narcissistic personality disorder NEED to be in control of every aspect of their lives, and this explains why their relationships are always on their terms. So, if you are texting one, you’ll no doubt already have noticed that they need to have the upper hand and feel like they are pulling the strings. They’ll always be the one who decides what to chat about and when is a time to end the conversation.

4) They constantly need validation

Although they like to pretend they are strong and independent, in reality, they thrive on compliments and virtually demand them. They need to be made to feel special and admired, and if you want them to carry on texting you, you’d best play ball, otherwise, they’ll simply disappear.

5) They put you down

Fully-fledged manipulators aren’t concerned about your mental health, and they believe that criticizing you will only motivate you to please them more. Although their methods are completely despicable, they prove to be effective in getting people to fall for them… So, the next time the person you are interested in texts you that they don’t like your new selfie, it may be time to walk away.

Editor’s opinion - Anyone can hide behind a virtual smile online

Being in a relationship with a narcissist in any sense is dangerous, which is why we need to have our wits about us. If you suspect the person you are texting has poor intentions, you must sever ALL communication immediately.

Why Do I Feel Bad When People Don’t Message Me Back?

Friday night rolls around and after a hard week you were expecting to have a drink with a girlfriend, but she seems to have left you hanging on read... To make matters worse (and the humiliation?) you even saw the little typing sign appear, yet you never received a reply. Well, if that’s the case, obviously you or your "how about a drink tonight?" didn’t deserve an answer. Let’s take a look at why some people don't reply to messages, and why when someone doesn't reply to your text, this makes us feel so bad.

Do Narcissists Enjoy Kissing?

Kissing is a deeply intimate act, and although in popular culture it is often classed as only being worthy of first base, it does in fact go way beyond that toxic evaluation. We have no doubt all had at least one lingering kiss that we’ll never forget; one which left all of our senses tingling and hungry for more. 💏 Well, that memorable smooch left us reminiscing because it was sincere and meant something. In short, it encapsulated love and romance, which are two things that narcissists are quite simply incapable of feeling.

How Do You Know A Narcissist Is Cheating?

Narcissism is wholly incompatible with healthy relationships, which goes some way in explaining why people with this personality disorder always believe the grass is greener elsewhere. Indeed, fidelity isn’t something they excel in and adds to their exhaustive list of weaknesses alongside their love of manipulation and dishonesty. 💔 However, they are so cunning and crafty that catching them out and confirming your intuitions is no easy feat. To make things easier for you, here are the 10 signs you need to look out for if you believe your narcissistic man is cheating on you.

I Never Thought I’d Say This, But I Hate Working From Home…

Work has always been a synonym of repression for me because it takes up so much of our precious time. Let’s be honest, a 9-5 job with a horrendous daily commute often means that work is sadly our sole occupation. So, when the Covid-19 pandemic struck over a year ago, and we were all ordered to stay home, I found it hard to hide my joy in front of my distraught coworkers; although thankfully my acting talents saved me. You can probably already tell, but going into the office every day was nothing less than torture for me. Yet, all these months later, I’ve realized that I despise working from home and would do anything to sit in my uncomfortable office chair once again!

Do Narcissists Play The Victim?

If you have ever had the displeasure of encountering someone with a narcissistic personality disorder, then you’ll no doubt already know how manipulative they are. Indeed, these folks despise taking responsibility for their actions and will do whatever it takes to avoid taking the rap for them, including play the victim. That’s right, these master puppeteers won’t hold back on pulling the strings and changing the narrative so that it suits them. Plus, they know exactly how to turn the waterworks when they want to get people on side.

I Have A Problem With Authority, Argh!

With all the orders my parents gave me, I thought I was armed for school, but as soon as I was at pre-school, my parents were summoned because I refused to do what the teacher told me. As I grew up, it became increasingly difficult to tell my manager where to get off, summoning my parents was no longer an option, but the intolerance to authority remained. Can we reconcile ourselves with authority, whether it is a silent or uncontrollable difficulty?

Can You Sleep With Someone On The First Date?: Judgement Free Zone

“Never on the first night!” We’ve all heard or uttered this phrase before. But here you are, in front of someone attractive, looks are exchanged, and the temperature rises little by little. This is when the angel and the demon on your shoulders start the debate: Is it better to wait before sleeping with this stranger? Or can you give in to the temptation? You wouldn’t want to be thought of as promiscuous, but at the same time, you only live once. We’ll tell you right now how much patience you can or can’t have!

My Sister Is Jealous Of Me

“In any case, you’re the favorite.” I’ve heard this phrase coming from my sister’s mouth over and over again. For a long time, her jealousy spoiled our lives, but I only wanted one thing: for us to be close and united. She poured her resentment in my face for many years until it got out of control. I couldn’t stand feeling so much anger and guilt at the same time. Soothing 30 years of jealousy hasn’t been easy, but there are ways to avoid getting to that point. I didn’t want jealousy to cut me off from my sister!
