5 Crazy Reasons Why Narcissists HATE Cuddling

You may assume narcissists like cuddling because they are extremely flirtatious, conceited, and infatuated with themselves. But if there is one thing you can be sure of, it is that narcissists do not like physical touch, especially cuddling, for the same reasons that you might find cuddling a nuisance.
