Feeling good about yourself can make a big difference in your dating life. Self-esteem isn’t black and white, it’s more like a spectrum. Meanwhile, a new report warns of a red flag in relationships: narcissists love kissing during the “love bombing” phase, but then lose interest. If you suspect you’re with a narcissist, seek help ASAP.

Kissing and the Love Bombing Stage: Do Narcissists Enjoy Kissing? The Answer Might Surprise You

Ah, the sweet sensation of kissing. It’s one of the most intimate and romantic acts between two people in love. But have you ever wondered if narcissists enjoy kissing? The answer might surprise you.

First, let’s talk about the love bombing stage. This is the initial phase of a relationship where a narcissist showers their partner with love, attention, and affection. They make grand gestures, lavish gifts, and overwhelming displays of affection. This is all part of their manipulation tactics to lure their partner in and make them feel special.

During this stage, kissing can be a powerful tool for the narcissist. They use it to make their partner feel desired, wanted, and loved. It’s a way to create a deep emotional connection and bond with their partner. However, the kissing is not about the act itself, but rather the power and control it gives the narcissist over their partner.

Narcissists enjoy the feeling of being in control and dominating their partner. Kissing is just another way for them to assert their dominance and manipulate their partner. They may use it to make their partner feel inferior or to make them feel like they are lucky to be with someone as amazing as the narcissist.

But here’s the catch – once the love bombing stage is over, the narcissist’s interest in kissing may fade. They may become distant and unaffectionate, using their partner’s desire for intimacy as a tool for manipulation. This can be confusing and hurtful for their partner, who may feel like they did something wrong to cause the change in behavior.

In conclusion, while narcissists may enjoy kissing during the love bombing stage, it’s not about the act itself but rather the power and control it gives them over their partner. As the relationship progresses, their interest in kissing may fade, leaving their partner feeling confused and hurt. It’s important to be aware of these red flags and to seek help if you suspect you are in a relationship with a narcissist. Remember, true love is about mutual respect, trust, and affection – not manipulation and control.
