11 Telltale Signs He Might Be A Narcissist

Hey, Sis! So this “how to spot a narcissist” guide lives near and dear to my heart! It definitely feels like most narcissistic people, especially men, are reading from the same crazy ass book. I really wish someone would have directed me to that section in the library so I could have been far better prepared. However, Sis you are in luck because I am going to put you on to the game’s narcissists play. You won't end up like I once did...the wool over your eyes swearing up and down I had 20/20 vision!


Ok, so first and foremost, let's talk about what a narcissist is. This word has been used so often in recent years and undoubtedly because 1 in 6 people exhibit narcissistic behavior. Even with that alarming rate, it's important not to let the term get watered down and be crystal clear on its meaning. A narcissist by definition is, a person who has excessive interest and admiration in themselves. They may lack the ability to understand or care about the feelings of others. And this is just the icing on the cake. The behaviors displayed due to this lack of understanding for others' feelings will rock your world especially if you find yourself partnered with one of these “ME Monsters”.


As women, we bring a rich tapestry of experiences, values, and hopes to the table. It's important to recognize when we encounter someone who might not be on the same wavelength, particularly when it comes to narcissistic tendencies. Take a listen, we'll walk through 11 telltale signs that you might be dating a "ME Monster," and how to gracefully navigate away from these fools.  So let me help keep that wool from over your eyes, Sis.



Grandiosity: When It's All About Them

Have you ever met someone who can't stop talking about themselves? A "ME Monster" thrives on self-importance, often overshadowing your own experiences and feelings. Remember, a healthy relationship should be a two-way street, where both parties contribute to each other's growth and happiness.


The Never-Ending Need for Attention and Praise

Dating a "ME Monster" often feels like being in a one-man show, where they constantly seek validation and applause. While it's natural to want affirmation, it should never come at the expense of your own needs and aspirations. A loving partner will appreciate and support your journey, just as you do for them.


Lack of Empathy: Trouble Seeing Your Perspective

Empathy is the cornerstone of any healthy relationship. If your partner consistently struggles to understand or acknowledge your feelings, it's a red flag. A "ME Monster" may be so wrapped up in their own world that they overlook the emotional needs of those around them.


Exploitation without Remorse

A "ME Monster" often sees others as tools to further their own agenda. This can be emotionally draining and detrimental to your wellbeing. Recognize your own worth and remember that you deserve a partner who values you for who you are, not what you can do for them.


Demeaning, Intimidating, and Bullying Behavior

Healthy relationships thrive on mutual respect and kindness. If you find yourself constantly belittled, intimidated, or bullied, it's time to reevaluate the situation. Remember, you deserve to be treated with dignity and love.


Gaslighting: Distorting Your Reality

Gaslighting is a manipulative tactic used to make you doubt your own perceptions. A "ME Monster" might try to convince you that your feelings and experiences are invalid. Trust your instincts and seek support from trusted friends or professionals if you find yourself in this situation.


A Sense of Entitlement: Their Way or the Highway

A healthy partnership is built on compromise, understanding, and mutual decision-making. If your partner consistently expects things to go their way without considering your needs, it's time to reassess whether this relationship aligns with your own aspirations.


Unreliability: Broken Promises and Empty Commitments

Consistency and reliability are key foundations of trust. If your partner frequently makes promises they can't keep, it can lead to disappointment and frustration. Remember, you deserve a partner who stands by their word.


Emotional Manipulation: Pulling the Strings

Healthy relationships are based on open communication and emotional support. If you find yourself being manipulated or guilt-tripped into certain behaviors or decisions, it's time to step back and evaluate whether this relationship is fostering your growth and happiness.


Jekyll & Hyde: Drastic Personality Shifts

If your partner's demeanor and behavior seem to change drastically from one moment to the next, it can be a sign of deeper emotional instability. Trust your intuition and recognize that consistency and stability are vital for a healthy, loving relationship.


Isolation and Control: Cutting You Off

A "ME Monster" may seek to isolate you from friends, family, and support systems, making you reliant solely on them. This behavior is unhealthy and can be a sign of controlling tendencies. Remember, a loving partner will encourage your growth and independence.


Navigating the dating world as a woman comes with its own set of joys and challenges. Recognizing the signs of a "ME Monster" early on empower you to make choices that align with your values and goals. Remember, Sis, you deserve a partner who uplifts, supports, and cherishes you for who you are. Trust your instincts, surround yourself with a strong support system like the Insatiable Wives Club, and never settle for anything less than the love and respect you deserve. You got this, Sis.
