You may have a boss who is like this, but you're not able to (or willing to) quit. Here's what to look out for: If you believe you're in close quarters with one at home, work or in your circle of friends, here are some tips to help you stay sane: Make friends with people who will let you talk and safely vent.
Join a support group, hire a therapist or a coach who can help you.
Senior Matchmaker and Dating Coach Lori Salkin, of the website Saw Youat Sinai.com, says that a serial narcissist will turn every conversation back onto their favorite topic: themselves. “Every time you try to share a story or opinion, your date changes the subject back to what he or she thinks or his or her opinion, and doesn't seem to mind that they're doing all the talking. If you feel like your date would be able to carry on the same conversation with their own reflection in a mirror, then that basically guarantees they are a narcissist.
If they invalidate your opinion constantly because they think they are the only one who can ever be right, then you should dump their toxic presence immediately.
That's why relationships with narcissists can be so destructive: They are more interested in preserving their self-image and are never concerned with how they affect others.
If there is no give and take in your relationship, or if the person you're dating shows any of these other red flags, you're dating a narcissist.
The high expectations they have for themselves extend to you, as well."Your presence only enhances the perfect image [they] present," Threadgill says.
