Have you ever felt like your partner just doesn’t seem quite right? You know, the ones you’ve been dating for a while now, and secretly wonder if maybe you’re not their type or something? Then you got together.
Maybe you had some reservations, but you went along with it because you really wanted to be with that person.
Or you might have been suspicious from the beginning, but you had the excuse of being “lonely and looking for love”.
It may sound silly, but whether you’ve realized it or not, there are plenty of people who have dated both narcissists and twin flames.
While they may seem like polar opposites, both narcissists and twin flames in relationships can have plenty of common traits.
In order to understand those and determine which of them you’re dealing with, read on to learn about the big differences between a narcissist and a twin flame.
What is a Narcissist?
Narcissists are typically self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. They have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration.
Narcissists also tend to be exploitative in relationships, using people as objects to meet their own needs.
The most important difference between a narcissist and a twin flame is that twin flames are love-centered.
They have unconditional love for themselves and the person they’re with, so their focus is on the other person’s needs.
They make sacrifices for the people they love and will do anything to keep them happy.
Narcissists, on the other hand, only care about themselves. They are not interested in doing anything for someone else unless it benefits them in some way or if they can be praised for it.
Narcissists always feel like they know best and they refuse to ask others any questions or listen to what their partner has to say.
A twin flame takes everyone’s opinion into consideration before making decisions and will make sure that anyone who cares about the decision is included in the conversation.
Twin flames will be supportive of their partner through success or failure because it means that much to them that their loved one is happy.
Narcissists don’t feel as strongly about their partners’ happiness, but instead, seek admiration from them when times are better and criticism when times are worse.
The Primary Differences between Narcissists and Twin Flames
- Narcissists and twin flames can both be emotionally manipulative, but narcissists are more likely to manipulate in order to meet their own needs. For example, they may control finances or prevent you from seeing your friends or family members. Narcissists also tend to make themselves the center of attention and don’t think about how it affects others.
- Twin Flames, on the other hand, have a much different set of motivations. Twin Flames feel responsible for the person they’re dating because they believe that person is going to help them heal past wounds, or that love will save them from suffering. They are more likely to put their partner first and want to share experiences with their partner in order to stay connected.
- Additionally, narcissists may not care about you as much as someone who is a twin flame would care about you. If a narcissist has decided to be in a relationship with you, they’ve probably made up their mind that they’re done being single and this is what they want right now (at least until something better comes along). This means that while narcissists might put on an act of caring for you in public settings, deep down inside they only really care about themselves. With twin flames, there is no ulterior motive – it’s all about the emotional connection between two people who recognize each other as true halves.
The term narcissist is thrown around a lot these days, but what does it really mean? Narcissists are known as people who are self-centered and obsessed with themselves.
Twin flames is a term that describes a specific type of relationship between two people.
There are several differences between these two types of relationships, and you should be aware of the distinctions if you’re in either type of relationship.
If now you’re wondering whether your partner is one or the other, this article may be able to help you figure it out.
If your partner has been unkind since day one, constantly makes threats if you don’t comply with their demands for time or affection, doesn’t care about your feelings, and actively tries to control how much time you spend away from them- chances are high that they’re a narcissist.
Your partner may be more easygoing and kinder than this, but they still may not be on the level of showing genuine interest in who you are or what’s going on in your life outside of their own desires- then they could just be a regular old human being who isn’t as self-absorbed as other people seem to think.
