Readers: I just had a comment to “How long before the Narcissist misses me?”
What a grievous situation this reader is facing.
The N does not always have to be a romantic partner. I got attached to my ex boyfriend’s son when he was 10 years old. He grew up to be a histrionic narcissist and during the idealization phase this kid made me his world. I thought he loved me. He was attached to me because his parents were not there for him. Well he told me at 21 years old that he was not attached to anyone. Not his parents or girlfriends or me. Now he will not speak to me. I have always been there for him loving, spoiling, caring…etc. He is just usually worried about his image and his hair. This has been painful to say the least, as painful as any loss or breakup. I have lost a child that I never had. He is not mine but his “real” family does not mean anything to him either.
I would love to respond to this individual, however with the email address that is listed – I cannot.
Everyone needs to remember that when you are doing business on the web – if you have what anyone would consider as a questionable email address – you are very likely to be deleted.
I hope that if Sherri is for “real” & that she will contact me again with a different email address.
In the mean time – what do you think of her situation? Tough place. Someone you love like the child you never had, but he cannot return your love. So very tragic.
