    This is really true! My ex made promises all the time and never really meant them.

  2. Jasmine says:

    He broke the covenant.
    So I broke it too
    and then he lit that bridge on fire!
    He knew what that meant.. he had to go
    And there’s no coming back.

    Oh how I wish I had found this site last year. My ex-Narc’s lie was “You are never getting rid of me”, espoused during the seduction period.

      Geyserempath, they are reading from the same script. I was told this, “I am not going anywhere. You are stuck with me. ” Yeah right!

      1. Jasmine says:

        Same, and when I tried to leave “you aren’t going anywhere” “you belong to me” “if I can’t have you, no one can”

        Insatiable Learner…Mine also promised to get some little blue pills, but that didn’t happen either. Perhaps we should get them a different script?

    You never — not once, not for one moment — felt bad about any of these false promises you gave, HG?

    But then, I know the answer. (Why do I hold out hope for narcissists? But I know the answer to that as well).

    “Hearing” your tone/seeing your interactions on this site — then having an emailing interaction with you just once — well, it has proven the point…narcissists can appear a certain way, but what is underneath is so very different. It’s so misleading — so hard to absorb — that the best of us can be fooled, despite all the head knowledge… it’s simply that the heart can override the mind. I expect you to feel what I do… Why can’t you?? Why can’t I change it?? That is what it comes down to.

    Thank you, HG… I continue to learn. I appreciate what you’re doing here.
