  1. As in my case. He targeted me 10 years before he decided to seduce, and then entangle, me. Fucking creeper!

  2. Read four books since yesterday! Wow what an eye opener. I was a target .. it was a matter of time I know … but now what?
    Learned so far that is important to me…
    1. Stop dwelling and talking about them to others
    2. Close all doors and windows … or the storm will hit me since I shut the fuel supply! Two years of supply.. and now OH so silent from me… for a short moment I even thought I was your kind. Turned into a stalker and did all the hovering techniques. But I’m not your kind.. now back to reading yet another book!
    Thanks and… no more target here ☺️

  3. Hi HG,
    So there are 2 types of upbringings for your type right?… 1.abandonment / lack of love as a child and 2. too much unrealistic flattery / admiration as a child

    Have you noticed any patterns between the two? For example, lessers and mid rangers usually have upbringing #1 and greaters #2, etc?

    1. Hello Joanne, I have not because those of my kind that I recognise I do not know their circumstances when they were children so I am unable to make a correlation. I suspect that certain narcissistic traits may well emerge dependent on the type of upbringing, for instance, grandiosity will be a product of 2.

    2. I don’t know, HG, wouldn’t you say you experienced both types of upbringing throughout your childhood? I think, ultimately, both types tie into each other, in most cases. However, I do understand the point that’s being made.

      1. Would you say in both these senerios genetics play a role in which path one chooses? You can be abandoned and abused and not become a narcissist, yet this factor may cause the narcissistic traits to be stronger when they do come to the forefront if triggered.
