What to do if your dating a narcissist
The cerebral narcissist tells himself that he is above all that, endowed as he is with superior intellect and superior self-control.
The cerebral narcissist does not enjoy sex and prefers m**********n or emotionless sex (such as going to prostitutes).
Generally, it is a means to an end and the act itself is meaningless, and provides no emotional connections.
The somatic narcissist resorts to serial sexual conquests; his sex partners are considered by him to be mere objects – sources of narcissistic supply.
It is through seduction and sexual conquest that the narcissist derives his badly needed narcissistic “fix”.
He uses sex to conquer and secure new sources of narcissistic supply.
Narcissists are generally exhibitionists and sex is just another tool in their toolbox for getting attention and adulation.
Narcissists commit adultery and have extramarital affairs or liaisons for a variety of reasons including control, power, attention, increasing self-image and because narcissists get bored easily. Narcissists are unable to empathize or genuinely love another person.
However, the narcissist feels robbed of his uniqueness by these common pursuits and feels forced into the roles of husband or father.
The sexual attitudes of narcissists are most peculiar- they tend to be either hyperactive sexually or hypoactive sexually.
Generally, there are two types of narcissists: the somatic narcissist (hyperactive sexually) and the cerebral narcissist (hypoactive sexually).
They are master manipulators and know how to fake intimacy; but when their partner no longer meets their “fix” for narcissistic supply, they will drop them and abandon them with no remorse.
Partners frequently feel used, even before being abandoned.
They reject and intensely resent all limitations or conditions placed upon them by their partners.
