Dating can be nerve-wracking, especially if you have anxiety. But for those with anxiety disorders, it can be even more challenging. Beware of narcissists who use kissing as a tool to manipulate their partners during the initial stages of a relationship. Don’t ignore your instincts if something feels off.
Kissing and the Love Bombing Stage: Do Narcissists Enjoy Kissing?
When we think of kissing, we often associate it with love, passion, and intimacy. It’s a physical expression of affection that can strengthen the bond between two people. But what about narcissists? Do they enjoy kissing as much as the rest of us? The answer might surprise you.
During the love bombing stage, which is the initial phase of a relationship where the narcissist showers their partner with attention and affection, kissing can be a powerful tool. Narcissists are skilled at manipulating their partners into feeling desired and loved, and kissing is one way to achieve this. They may use kissing as a way to establish dominance and control over their partner, or to make themselves feel powerful and desirable.
However, once the love bombing stage is over and the relationship settles into a more stable phase, the narcissist’s interest in kissing may wane. They may view kissing as a chore or an obligation, rather than a pleasurable activity. This is because narcissists often lose interest in their partners once they feel they have “won” them over. They may move on to the next conquest, leaving their partner feeling used and discarded.
It’s important to note that not all narcissists are the same, and some may genuinely enjoy kissing and other physical expressions of affection. However, it’s important to be aware of the potential for manipulation and control in the early stages of a relationship, especially if your partner is exhibiting other narcissistic traits.
In conclusion, while narcissists may enjoy kissing during the love bombing stage, their interest in physical affection may decrease as the relationship progresses. It’s important to be aware of the potential for manipulation and control in the early stages of a relationship, and to trust your instincts if something feels off. Remember, a healthy relationship is built on mutual respect, trust, and genuine affection, not manipulation and control.
