    Same argument, simply insert drinking in place of porn, staying out and in my estimation, forgetting he was married with kids at home. The problem was, I listened and went to professional therapy. When I knew what he was, I made plans and got out.

    I remember my mom having these circular conversations now I know what the problem was she would be in a rage talking and yelling at him and he would be laughing and I remember being a bit scared to see my mom this wound up and now I see so many years later that it wasnt her. He made her look like she was fucking crazy because of his fuckry. I can laugh now but I think they divorced because the next step was for him to meet his maker.

      Glad to see you on here. Also glad you eventually seen the big picture. Narcissists will make people crazy. It’s a good lesson though to see how the victim becomes attached and most importantly, how to get out. This really is a lesson TO the victim. Figure out why you are attracted to this and how you can become free. It’s really not just the narcissists problem. It’s both because they have an addiction to the other. I’m a big advocate these days on how the victim doesn’t have to be a victim. Figure out your part in the problem and then it’s no longer a problem. At least not for you. (Victim.). The N will move on to the next, but it won’t be you. Yay!!

    I have witnessed my mother having these conversations with my narc stepfather. In my mind I would be thinking – why doesn’t she just grey rock him?! (without knowing what grey rocking really was), but now I know how different it is when it’s your intimate partner. The narc and I have had some milder versions of this type of thing and it is absolutely infuriating.

    Omg if it weren’t so sick it would be funny. I’ve had these conversations. I could never win. Never. It’s like talking to a five year old who asks you the same question 10 different ways until he gets his way. Utterly maddening.

    Good grief. Definitely written by a Brit. Reminds me of Monty Python. You’re arm is off! No it isn’t! What do you mean; African or European? You must bring us a shrubbery! It could grip it by the husk. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberry! Run away! Let’s not argue and fight over who killed who! Now go away before I taunt you a second time.

    Americans aren’t as good at this, I think. Between my narc and me, I was the better orator, so he would have to disengage in a rage fit. Plus, he is a lesser. Don’t miss these, though! Just funny to read this. Like that Monty Python sketch where the people go and pay for an argument. This could be one of their sketches.

      The payment for an argument sketch is great.

        No it isn’t! 😉

          Very good!

    I don’t miss those pointless conversations. No wonder I felt like I was going crazy.
