They make you feel needy and crazy
This one’s related. That woman you met on Tinder who came on really strong and made you feel smart, desirable, and self-assured suddenly is answering your texts with one-word responses, after taking several hours to get back to you. She’s hot and cold, and you’re freaking out and feel needy in a way that you've never felt before.
OK, so I don’t have enough background on this imaginary woman from Tinder, but you catch my drift. Narcissists are often spotty in their displays of validation or affection. They make you feel what it's like to have their approval, then they pull away.
They've had "falling outs" with a lot of people --professionally, romantically, socially, and more
Sometimes you have a falling out with people, and the reasons aren't exactly black and white. But regardless of fault, narcissists may be more likely to have a lot of bad history with people in their lives, including bosses, colleagues, exes, old friends, and so on. On reality shows, they're the ones who bring the #drama.
This is probably because narcissists are typically entitled and lack empathy -- two qualities essential for building trust, reciprocity, and communication in important relationships. Thank God reality television has given them a place to thrive.
