My best friend of about 15 years was a narcissist. It took me a long time to see her for what she was. I eventually severed the relationship but not before a lot of damage had been done. She was a terrible, toxic influence. I’m sorry you had a similarly awful experience. Like yourself, I can’t fathom how damaging it would be to be romantically involved with such a person — devastating, I imagine.
