Narcissistic Relationship Cycle: Caused by Nurture or Nature?

We all know that narcissistic abusers follow certain relationship patterns: they first idealize you - put you up on a pedestal and seem like your soulmate (this is also called love bombing).

Next, they put you through the hell of the devalue and then the discard phase - and often these cycles are repeated for years.

Yesterday a reader asked me a really interesting question - how is it that these patterns are used by most narcissists in varying but identifiable iterations?

In this video, I'll share my research and offer my best answer to the question - is toxic narcissism caused by environmental factors, or is there a genetic component involved - or could there be more than one factor in play?

YouTuber Mary Cutrone asked:

I've learned so much about the narcissist abuse tactics, but still have one question. How do they follow the same pattern? They don't go to "narcissist school" ... but follow the love bombing to the final discard like it's a formula. What's up?

In the Go Ask Angie series, I respond "off the cuff" to questions, comments and concerns sent to me by my YouTube viewers, readers from my QueenBeeing.com site and those who reach out in other ways, such as by email.
