5 Reasons Narcissists Can’t Have Intimate Relationships
But any relationship with a narcissist is not a normal circumstance. Narcissists will take advantage of any kind person’s act. Worse, they will see a person’s kindness as an act of weakness – like a great white shark that detects blood in the water.
Welcome to a narcissist’s world.
Narcissists & Relationships
It goes without saying that a true narcissist cannot have – and doesn’t really want – an intimate relationship.
1. THEY DO NOT TRUST OTHERS
In an intimate relationship, both partners become vulnerable, and vulnerability requires trust. Well, how can someone with NPD trust, then? They can’t.
Narcissists, though emotionally stunted, can be as intelligent as their counterparts. As such, they logically comprehend the relationship between trust and vulnerability. Therefore, they will not commit to an actual relationship.
They will, however, enter into a one-sided “relationship” with plans for exploitation. Weakness, vulnerability, and trust are not recognizable to the narcissistic brain.
