    Earlier this year I came out of a long term relationship with a narcissist. Despite his vanity he truly believes he is unattractive. He has film star looks, remember Steve McQueen as a young man? But he would stand in front of the mirror in a tremendous funk, cursing what heredity did to him. He looks like his mother, and even though bearded has been mistaken many times for a woman. Around here most of the men are big and beefy and butch, and a small blond man is somewhat unusual. You can imagine the mood that descends after an incident when he has been mistaken for a man.
    I take care of my appearance, but it would take me far less time to get ready than him. He would often wash his hair a second time if it went wrong. He was getting through a can of extra strength hair spray in a fortnight! And woe betide if his face was looking pale, or fat, or he had dark circles under his eyes. Me, I just put on a bit of makeup. He would put on a sulk.
    He would stress about his weight, having strict OCD rules on certain days that would disallow an evening meal. And an invitation to go our for food and drink on a Friday night would send him into a flat spin!!! Indulgence days are Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.
    Since we are no longer together my life is far less complicated. I no longer have to buy his hair spray and other grooming products. I conduct my social life on a whim, no longer declining invitations as a woman attached to a narcissistic man. Life is good!

      Dear Karenne,
      It sounds like your ex was very focussed on himself and his appearance to the world. I appreciate that you feel free to share your experience.
      A narcissist uses his love for you on condition to you doing stuff for him, to name but one characteristic.I cannot be sure that your ex-partners was a narcissist without knowing how he treated you. But they are certainly focussing the events of their lives around them. However, that alone does not qualify him to be named a narcissist. Did you listen to the audio? We explain it very well in the interview.
      I am glad life is good without him.
      Remember that our partners reflect something about ourselves to us as well. xox
