People with low self-esteem are prone to falling into another common trap of narcissists — codependent relationships.
People with NPD will try to manufacture superficial connections early on in a relationship.
However, if you believe you are in a relationship with a narcissist, you must get the help and support you need.
But partners of such persons with the condition may feel very alone.
At best, they find your emotions confusing, and want to make you feel better because that makes them the "perfect" partner; at worst, they view them as outright confronting and annoying.
The distinction here can be found in the speed at which a relationship progresses.
