Narcissists do not respond well to relationship problems. Instead of dealing with the issues, they go to great lengths to avoid them until they blow up in their faces, and they are forced to deal with them. Stick to this article as I show you the answer to this question: “How do narcissists react to problems in relationships?”
Number 1: Narcissists deny that there are problems at all.
Narcissists can be pretty good at pretending everything is okay, even if it’s not. Most of the time, narcissists will just flat-out deny the problem exists. Because of this, they don’t have to take responsibility for their actions or consider how they might change their behavior to improve their relationship. If you want to know how narcissists react to relationship problems, you need to look beneath the surface. Narcissists see the world in a very black-and-white way. If you’re not for them, you’re probably against them. They don’t see shades of gray. So, when something threatens their self-image or self-control, they have difficulty accepting it. Things have to either be perfect or horrible, and there is no middle ground. Narcissists can be so focused on what they want to see that they don’t even realize there is a problem.
Number 2: Narcissists blame their partners for their own mistakes.
If you’ve ever been in a relationship with a narcissist, you know how difficult it can be to get through the day. They’re demanding and manipulative, and they never take responsibility for their actions. So, you always feel frustrated and exhausted. Narcissists will blame their partners for everything that goes wrong, even if it’s not their fault. This behavior is one of the most common ways narcissists react when faced with conflict or criticism. For example, if a narcissist gets caught cheating on his wife or girlfriend, he might say she made him cheat because she wasn’t giving him enough sex or attention. Narcissists are utterly incapable of taking responsibility for things that go wrong in a relationship, so they’ll blame you. This can be dangerous because it allows narcissists to get away with doing things that hurt you without consequences. If your partner does this often enough, it can affect your self-esteem and make you feel like a failure.
