Emotional predators dating
–The key to success really seems to be to practice self-validation and go out in the real world, attend meet-up group events, and be very attentive to the people around you in every day situations. I am grateful for Kim’s transparent description of Tinder and POF, no need to waste my own time or recommend it to anyone, thank you much! Wishing you the best, Kim When I finally looked to see if the ex narcopath had dating profiles I found some where around ten on various dating/hook up/swinger sites. My tip to anyone newly dating someone is to do a Google search on their phone number. Both only lasted about 5 months and were absolute train wrecks.
The ex had his number posted on nearly all of the profiles I found. Both narcissists, lying, cheating manipulative jerks. The opening of this post made me laugh and shake my head.
3 Dating Sites to Avoid That are Crawling with Narcissists […] You forgot Linked In as the new dating site!!! You are right about Linked In, it is definitely become a NARC site, being that an ex whom is an extreme serial relationship and marriage narcissist was always pushing his and trying to get everyone elses’ info.
in fact I would keep a low profile and just browse other people’s profiles and try to see who might not be a narc…
I never had a good experience, however brief, with anyone I ever met on either of those sites. Thanks Kim for being here too 🙂 Ha, I know what you mean, a co worker met someone on Match.com, within no time, he sent her texts messages and calls all day and night everyday (yuck) and sent her flowers to the office…was over the moon, then they got married, she claimed everything was fine, until one day when they had been married less than a year, she caught him at another girls house in his robe…yes, she actually caught him, I think she followed him or something-she’s a feisty Italian -haha.
When in my early 30’s I did newspaper ads, then after a while starting in my late 30’s, I did the online thing, one of my first was ok cupid…I met someone there in my early 40’s who turned out to be a narcissistic weirdo who only wanted one thing, and it wasnt a committed relationship (at least with me), unfortunately, it took me a while to get over that emotional obsession, by the time I did, it was really too late for me -nature had taken away my ability to have children…I have had 100% bad stuff from every online dating service I joined and that has been over a dozen and the men there…from being stood up, to meeting psychos who boldly put up pictures that were not them or from 20 yrs prior, to being abused verbally or emotionally, to being lied, to promises of love that never happened, to being coaxed to give of myself just to be taken advantage of…You can see, I don’t need an article to keep me away, but keep spreading the word, so others might know. I asked what was the day’s weather like in Santa Ana, he gave me Raleigh’s NC weather, like 20 degrees hotter than CA. I know there are out there vulnerable people that can fell for people like this guy… I’ve been dipping my toes in the water, but the idea of dating really scares the crap out of me!
I messaged with this guy from Santa Ana, CA on OKC. He “grew up” in South Africa (That’s a big red flag) overseas people always end up asking for money. My point is; if someone approaches you mentioning south Africa, the UK, a military career, most likely it’s a scam. Those were only the ones in person and I at one time close to 100 messages from different people on the site that red flags were so bad I did not even respond to the message. I have been trying out Bumble which gives women all the power, so that one feels the safest so far. Sure, you can anticipate some level of flack – that’s what it is, right or wrong, to be female on the internet. They wanted some kind of “relationship” with a girl without putting any work into it. In the real world, there is always an effort – at the very least, to be civil.
Hi Kim my advice for anyone who is involved with a narissist.. Pack your bags anger as far away from them as you can. They have to put you Down to f3l good about themselfs sad really. I am sorry that you went through this, particularly in the wake of a break up.
They will set up a certain image for themselves in a dating profile and then try to lure you in by letting you think theres a lot more than there is to them and then making you think you have so much in common — the covert maggoty ones anyway. pedestal; too cool for everyone, oh but you, you are lucky enough to have him, eh?
