In response to a confession. No worries if it doesn't help you, but at one point in my life, I didn't know about narcissism, and it was reading copious amounts on the subject that helped me learn. I shared the article in case it might help someone who needed it like I did. At the very least, I think some of the ideas in there about how manipulative the silent treatment is can be enlightening. YMMV.

I'm not sure if this should go in here or what's wrong with you but I seem to date guys with a very specific and frustrating set of qualities. They think they're tougher than they are, addictions, issues with food, body image problems and a need for instant gratification. I had to recently cold my boyfriend for trying to go the crash diet route to lose weight for the idk what numbered time. He gets very restrictive for a week and then binges for 2. Something I had to lecture my exhusband about regularly. My boyfriend currently has food poisoning because the doofus ate pizza from the fridge at work without knowing how old it was or who bought it. Seriously?! 26 year old child... then again my brother is 37 and did the same thing a couple of months ago... thank goodness women tend to be more sensible or the human race would have died out long ago

In response to a confession. Haven't we all gone radio silent on a partner at some point? My ex used to be such a dick to me that I would shut down because I was hurting. Naturally, he accused me of giving him the silent treatment. I just didn't want to fight and escalate things. Articles like this just rub me the wrong way. Yes, narcissistic personalities exist. No, a magazine article isn't going to help you diagnose someone.

There's a guy that seems sexually attracted to me but i am not that into him. I always find that weird - I feel like that kind of attraction kind of has to be mutual to even work at all ....

In response to a confession. The silent treatment is a particularly nasty form of emotional abuse that's popular with narcissists. There's lots of info about this out there. You might start here: http://www.goodtherapy.org/blog/silent-treatment-a-narcissistic-persons-preferred-weapon-0602145

In response to a confession. I faved your post not because I'm glad it happened to you - I'm not. I'm just really proud of how you stuck up for yourself and that you are not planning on staying. Good on you.

A while back I started talking to and seeing a guy whose mom judged me for still being legally married despite being separated for years and there was no way I'd ever get back with my ex. She kicked her son out of her home and disowned him all because he wanted to see me. I made the decision to stop seeing him. She let him move back home and back into her life. Come to find out, she is married to a guy who left her a few years before then, she refuses to divorce because she doesn't believe in divorce. But she goes on dates and see's other men. Talk about a hypocrite!

My DH acts so damn immature when he's around his siblings. I know they don't see each other that often, but it's ridiculous. Yesterday, all of us were in the elevator at the hotel and some guy got on and DH made a comment about his shirt and all his siblings started snickering and it was just so FUCKING rude. The guy kept looking at them and then at his shirt and when he got off the elevator, they just kept laughing and snickering and whispering. When I got him alone in the car, I reamed him out. I told him how rude they were being and that it just was not acceptable to act that way in public. Of course he felt bad about it, but he didn't apologize. He just said "Oh well, we weren't laughing at that guy". I said it didn't matter; they were still being super rude.

In response to a confession. This reminds me of the time my brother threw up in the shower. I was so irritated. He ran past one empty half bath to the full bathroom and past the toilet in there to puke in the shower. And while he rinsed it out right after but didn't use any cleaning supplies. The toilet is pretty much the only place in a home built for chunky and gross things to go.

In response to a confession. My xh once refused to talk to me for an entire night because I wouldn't stop talking about things and people in my home state... we had just gotten married and I had moved from my state to where he was stationed like a month before. I had no friends, no job, and we didn't do anything but drink with his alcoholic friend on the weekends. OF COURSE I'm gonna talk about home... I had nothing noteworthy happen in the month I had left and 19 years of stuff and people to talk about from home. Your husband is a jerk for not telling you why he's mad...if my ex hadn't told me why he was mad I would have never figured out that's what pissed him off, I hadn't even been talking to him at the time. I was talking to someone's girlfriend. I think you should tell him if he doesn't tell you why he's mad he can't expect you to fix/explain/whatever it and that you're going to stop trying until he decides to act like an adult. Even my 4 yo knows to tell me what's upsetting him so it can be resolved.
