Q: After reading tons of books I am certain that my ex boyfriend is a narcissist. We have been separated for more than 3 months but we are coworkers. Im staying away from him to forget and heal my heart but he is the one who keeps coming back to me in my office. Im having a hard time moving on. Please I need some advice.
A: He will keep coming back to you until he obtains a new source of narcissistic supply. You are right there every working day- it is convenient for him. Be socially polite only as far as you have to (ignore him whenever you can) but keep an air of indifference. Do not give him the supply he seeks: do not ask how he is, do not let him know you are having a hard time moving on, do not give him any attention-positive or negative- and eventually he will move on to a more reliable source. Stay strong- he will move on. And then so will you.
