We grow up as little girls, dreaming of one day marrying our 'knight in shining armor'. We sift through a pile of guys that are unfit partners and then seemingly one of them emerges from the crowd. Our excitement rises as we start to think about all of the possibilities: a dream house, beautiful children, swinging on the porch swing holding hands, a perfect life.
You've had this charming, witty and wonderful guy hanging around, but the more you hang with him and investigate the possibilities, the more red flags arise. You have that uneasy feeling in your stomach that something isn't quite right, but you can't seem to put your finger on it. Then the truth starts to emerge from the fog. Your man has a 1-in-4 chance of being a narcissist, and you were the lucky one to get him.
This guy has you in his sights now, and you are hooked. You don't know whether you should pursue the relationship further. You can't imagine yourself with someone else, but you don't know what this self-absorbed personality means for you and him. There are many reasons to avoid dating or marrying a narcissist. This is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make in your entire life.
In this book, we will cover the different reasons you shouldn't date or marry a person with narcissistic tendencies. We'd also recommend following these recommendations for anyone who exhibits traits of anti-social personality disorder (those who have complete disregard for others' wants and needs) or schizoid personality disorder tendencies (people who have a very strong preference for aloneness and lack empathy). These latter two disorders are similar in some ways to narcissism or have some narcissistic traits by definition.
