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

Hey there, lovebirds! Today, we’re going to talk about something that’s been on my mind lately – kissing! Specifically, do narcissists enjoy kissing? It’s a question that’s been popping up more and more lately, and I thought it was worth exploring.

First off, let’s talk about what a narcissist is. Narcissism is a personality disorder characterized by a grandiose sense of self-importance, a lack of empathy for others, and a need for admiration. Narcissists often have an inflated sense of self-worth and believe they are superior to others. They may also exhibit manipulative and controlling behaviors.

So, back to the question at hand – do narcissists enjoy kissing? The answer is complicated. In the early stages of a relationship, when a narcissist is in the love bombing stage, they may enjoy kissing and other physical displays of affection. Love bombing is a tactic used by narcissists to quickly and intensely win over their partners. They may shower their partner with attention, gifts, and affection to make them feel special and loved.

During this stage, kissing and physical touch may be a way for the narcissist to reinforce their control over their partner. It can also be a way for them to get the validation they crave. Narcissists often need constant reassurance that they are desirable and attractive, and physical affection can be a way to get that validation.

However, as the relationship progresses and the love bombing stage ends, the narcissist’s enjoyment of kissing and physical touch may wane. They may start to see their partner as less valuable and lose interest in maintaining the relationship. They may also start to exhibit more controlling and manipulative behaviors, which can make physical affection feel less genuine.

So, in short, narcissists may enjoy kissing and physical touch during the love bombing stage, but their enjoyment may not be genuine or sustainable.

Now, I know this may all sound a bit bleak, but I want to emphasize that not all physical affection in relationships with narcissists is inherently bad. It’s important to remember that every relationship is different, and just because someone exhibits narcissistic traits doesn’t mean they can’t also be capable of love and genuine affection.

However, it’s also important to be aware of the signs of narcissistic behavior and to set boundaries in your relationships. If you feel like your partner is using physical affection as a way to control or manipulate you, it’s important to speak up and address the issue.

In conclusion, kissing and physical touch can be complicated in relationships with narcissists. While they may enjoy physical affection during the love bombing stage, their enjoyment may not be genuine or sustainable. It’s important to be aware of the signs of narcissistic behavior and to set boundaries in your relationships to ensure that physical affection is a genuine expression of love and not a tool for control or manipulation.
