Narcissistic silent treatment is something that virtually every narcissist delivers skilfully. Ironically it’s the horrible blow that they themselves are terrified of – being rendered invalid, invisible and totally redundant. We all know what it is to ignore or be ignored – we may have snubbed someone at sometime in our life, or we may have been given the “cold shoulder” ourselves.

Narcissists are all around us. In their various forms, ranging from somewhat benign to extremely toxic, they dominate reality TV shows, political campaigns, and the world of movies and music.  While they can be attractive, entertaining, sharp, and funny to watch from a distance, you don’t want to date or marry one.  And if you are already entangled with one, you may be reeling with confusion, self-doubt, and damaged self-esteem.  Unfortunately, the chances of hooking up with a narcissist at some time in your dating or relationship life are pretty strong. Their physical attractiveness, charm, intelligence, and laser-like focus on going after what they want mean that they can reel you in, frantically romance you, devour you, and spit you out in a heartbeat.  If you are beautiful and insecure or a “giver” in relationships, you are a prime target.
