This Is What Happens When An Empath And A Narcissist Get Together In A Relationship

When these two get together, things are never going to work.

Empaths and narcissists are two very different personality types, and their dynamics in a romantic relationship can be quite complex.

An empath is someone who is highly sensitive and attuned to the emotions and needs of others. They are often very compassionate, empathetic, and nurturing. Empaths tend to put the needs of others before their own and can feel overwhelmed by the emotions and energy of those around them.

On the other hand, a narcissist is someone who is highly self-centered and has an inflated sense of their own importance. They may lack empathy for others and prioritize their own needs and desires above all else. Narcissists often seek out admiration and attention from others and can be manipulative and controlling in their relationships.

When an empath and a narcissist fall in love, the empath may be drawn to the narcissist’s charisma and confidence, while the narcissist may be attracted to the empath’s nurturing and caring nature. However, over time, the empath may begin to feel drained and exhausted by the narcissist’s constant need for attention and validation. The narcissist, in turn, may feel frustrated by the empath’s emotional sensitivity and desire to put others before themselves.

In many cases, the empath may try to “fix” the narcissist or cater to their needs in an effort to make the relationship work. However, this can lead to a toxic and imbalanced dynamic, with the empath feeling drained and the narcissist feeling entitled.

Overall, it can be a challenging and unhealthy dynamic when an empath and a narcissist fall in love, and it may be best for both parties to seek out relationships with individuals who share their values and communication styles.

If someone has fallen in love with a narcissist or an empath, it’s important to be aware of the potential challenges and dynamics that may arise in the relationship. It’s also important to take the time to reflect on one’s own values, needs, and boundaries.

If you are in love with a narcissist, it’s important to be aware of their tendency to prioritize their own needs and desires above yours. It may be helpful to set clear boundaries and communicate your own needs in the relationship. However, it’s also important to be prepared for the fact that the narcissist may not be able to meet your emotional needs and may not be willing or able to change their behavior.

If you are in love with an empath, it’s important to be aware of their tendency to prioritize the needs of others above their own. It may be helpful to support the empath in setting boundaries and taking time for self-care. However, it’s also important to recognize that the empath may need more emotional support and understanding than some other partners, and it may take extra effort to communicate effectively and build a strong relationship.

In either case, it’s important to prioritize your own well-being and to seek out relationships with individuals who share your values and communication styles. If the relationship becomes toxic or abusive, it’s important to seek help from a therapist or counselor and to consider ending the relationship for your own safety and well-being.

  1. My ex husband was a Narcissist and he took me from feeling beautiful and free to a feeling of not being pretty enough, thin enough, and level of self loathing that I almost took my own life. He had an affair and I was so thankful for it, bevause it was my first step towards freedom. I have been trying to build myself up since. I have since been working on myself and have remarried to man who always builds me up even on days when I relive my past relationship trauma. My new husband is a blessing and I am so thankful that I am slowly starting to forget my ex husband.

    1. I’m in the same relationship and want to run away from this relation but can’t as I love him so much but he didn’t or you can say his behavior is because of his narcissistic nature. Please someone please help and guide me to run out of this relationship as I have kids also and I just don’t want my kids to leave with him

      1. The thing is he has never & will never love you or his children. You are wasting your time with this man, he only loves himself or maybe even hates himself but he isn’t capable of loving you or your kids. He is a liar & if a narcissist he is dangerous especially if abusive. If he’s abusive physically or sexually & is sadistic he’s a malignant narcissist or worse a sociopath or psychopath. You can be sure if he’s abusing you he is also capable of abusing your children. I lived with & couldn’t escape a husband for 30 years. He is now diagnosed a psychopath, I didn’t know how bad he was & thought him only bad to me & I couldn’t escape. Everyone thought him wonderful & nobody helped me. That’s because he had already flattered & deceived everyone around me, including friends, family, even police, before he targeted me. My advice, pick up your kids & run. Go to the nearest police station & say he’s an abuser. Say & do whatever you have to do to get away from him & save your children. My only regret is I didn’t do him in, as it would have saved so many others that I wasn’t even aware he was hurting. As I’ve been told, we are lucky to have survived. I wouldn’t even call these things men, I’d call them demonic beings, shape shifters & they’re fully aware of the harm they are causing. Mine actually really hated me & wanted to kill me from the time we met when I was just 15. He hated that I was kind & nice & put others before myself & he took advantage of it. He played the victim, love bombed ect. I wanted to help him. Do whatever you have to do to save your kids xxx

        1. So very sorry for all that you have gone through. I understand how you feel unfortunately. I am very happy that you are out of that situation and safe now!

  2. Omg, this is exactly the relationship I have.. I’m an empath, he’s a narcissist. Working on getting out!!!

    1. I just got out of a marriage where I was the empath and he was the narcissist. He took me for over $340k! We are both 60 and only married for 16 months. He took things from me that I had WAY before I even met him. He tried to take my deceased mother’s china cabinet in our divorce! They are vile, entitled sociopaths!

  3. This was the exact relationship I just got out of finally for the last time! I went back after leaving several times because of the love bombing my narcissistic boyfriend was doing. I was belittled, accused of cheating every day I let myself go because I thought if I looked bad the accusations would stop they didn’t! I was called stupid and fat and was not able to even work without accusations of cheating! It was terrible and if this is happening to you run!! Millions of miles away and don’t look back!

  4. This is the exact same situation i find myself in but i took the steps to filing for divorce as it was now becoming physical and we share 2 small kids together. He has changed me from the beautiful amd confident woman i was to me not having any confidence in myself,jobless and lost so much weight that i look sick,so many times ive tried to commit suicide, i now ended up treating him very bad and saying bad things to try and make him feel like how he makes me feel. I love him so much and a small part of me feels like im making a mistake filing for divorce but im doing it for my kids,he even told me so many times im going to regret leaving him one day

  5. I always put everyone else first I love everyone for who they are
    I just got divorced from a narcassist and she has destroyed my new relationship
    I am more worried every one else needs before mine to the point my credit is crap and I have given all my money away
    I didn’t care because I truly believed she would give it back and appreciate it
    I’m blown away by the lack of effort and unloyalty
