Hey guys, have you recently matched with a narcissistic woman on your dating app? You're not alone! It can be tough to know you are involved with a narcissist but there are some red flags which you can look out for to help protect yourself.
So why do you find yourself attracted to narcissistic women on dating apps?
From crafting a profile, to messaging and meeting on the first date, narcissists are experts at manipulating and gaslighting others, making it difficult for you to feel confident recognizing their negative behaviours.
But don't beat yourself up over it. It's not your fault that you can't always spot a narcissist right away and even when you do recognize them, it can be hard to resist their charm and charisma. It often takes having a narcissist in your life to see the signs and avoid making the same mistake again.
Narcissistic women can be successful and attractive, both in their careers and on dating apps. Often they're skilled manipulators who thrive on getting the attention they crave. Narcissists look for warm-hearted generous people to get their 'fix' of affection.
Dating apps can also reward narcissistic behavior. Women who appear popular and responsive may receive more matches and likes, even if their behavior is not genuine.
One of the red flags to look out for is excessive self-focus. On a first date it can be difficult to determine if someone is engaging in healthy self-expression or if they are exhibiting narcissistic tendencies, After all, first dates are usually about spending time talking about yourself!
If you feel like she is focusing on herself too much it might just be nervousness. It can be hard to tell and you don't want to jump to conclusions. Take your time to get to know her and don't hesitate to talk to trusted friends or family members about something that might be a red flag.
Narcissistic women are often skilled at love-bombing, showering you with attention and flattery. While genuine affection and attention are desirable, it's important to trust your instincts and pay attention to how their behavior makes you feel. Do they seem to genuinely care about your feelings and interests, or are they only interested in their own needs?
One way to differentiate between self-confidence and narcissism is by listening to how your date speaks about others. Narcissists often lack empathy and view others as inferior, while genuinely confident individuals are empathetic and open to learning from their mistakes.
It can be challenging to avoid matching with narcissistic women on dating apps, as they can seem so charming and appealing at first. However, it's important to pay attention to red flags and trust your instincts. If something seems off or too good to be true, ask questions and keep an open mind.
If you see definitive red flags, respectfully end contact. Be aware that narcissists are primarily concerned with their own needs and desires, and will often try to manipulate or charm their way back into your life. Don't be afraid to cut contact and trust that you'll find someone who values and respects you for who you are.
Matching with a narcissistic woman on your dating app isn't a common experience, but many men have had the experience. Unfortunately, there is no easy, foolproof way to identify that someone is a narcissist until you get to know them better, Narcissists are really, really good at looking like someone you would like to know better, but underneath they cannot really be a fully committed, loving partner when they care about themselves so much.
By paying attention to red flags, trusting your instincts, and seeking the advice of trusted friends and family, you can avoid falling for their charm. Keep looking until you find the genuine connection you were always meant to have.
