Beware narcissists!

Years ago, I was in a relationship with a man whose ex-wife was a lesbian.

He railed on and on about her.

How she tricked him.

How she was all about herself.

He went so far as to call her a “narcissist.”

Now, between the two of us, he’s the expert.

He has four degrees in psychology while I have never taken a single psychology class in my life.

I did figure this out, however.

Beware the criticisms that people level at other people.

Often time that finger pointing should be aimed right at themselves.

I never met his ex-wife but it did occur to me that between the two of them, he probably suffered from narcissism as much as she did.

For this man was indeed the most frighteningly selfish man I’d ever met.

He’d make Ayn Rand proud.

The other day, I was texting with a man I met on Tinder and I asked about his ex-wife.

He launched into a tirade about how awful she is.

They only communicate in text messages so he has a record of what she’s said.

Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Oh, and by the way, she’s a NARCISSIST!

What’s that?


That’s my cue to DISAPPEAR!

  1. People who pay attention note that I don’t say a lot about my ex wife. Occasionally I’ll mention she’s an addict, or she’s tried another way to wheedle her way back into my life and I’m tired of her antics. But I don’t rail on and on and on about her, because she’s not important in my life. She took up 26 years of my life, but she doesn’t need to take up more. She is, in fact a narcissist, but I don’t need to point that out, folks figure it out pretty quickly when they meet her. She apparently goes around pointing the finger at me all the time as to excuses why her life sucks. As I often note, when you point a finger at someone else, 3 other of your fingers are pointing right back AT YOU!

  2. I’ve found that the way a narcissists talk about their exs is always so brutally cold it would put the hairs on my arms on end. Ugh. Such a big red flag when meeting someone new is the way they speak of their ex – if they say the ex was a crazy cheater youve gotta ask yourself ” why was she crazy? ” more than likely it’s because of the narcissists!!!!
    I am just starting blogs on narcissists at the moment , red flags will be my next one😂
