Narcissistic Abuse Cycles: Lies, Cognitive Distortion, FOG & How a Toxic Relationship Feels to You by Angie | Apr 17, 2017 (Visited 342 times, 1 visits today) 1 Comment Nikki on April 20, 2017 at 2:22 pm This was excellent and was what happened to me. Could you please discuss whether the narcissist KNOWS they are reeling you in and that they will be getting rid of you just like they have everyone else or do they think “this is the ONE” and they hope it will work out. Or is this behavior subconscious and they NEVER realize they have a problem like EVERYONE tells them they do who has tried to be in a relationship with them. The narc I dated would say he “thought different” than most people and he was proud of the fact and thought his way of thinking was RIGHT and everyone else was wrong. He was ugly to women, but was careful to hide this side of him from his male friends and their girlfriends. That makes me feel that they KNOW what they are doing and it is not subconscious actions.
