Do you ever feel like you can’t stand up for yourself? Are you afraid of anger or rejection if you don’t give in to other people’s wants and needs? Well, watch out for love bombing! Narcissists use this tactic to manipulate their partners and gain control over the relationship. They shower their significant other with compliments, gifts, and physical affection, but it’s all just a tool in their manipulation toolbox. Don’t fall for it!

Kissing and the Love Bombing Stage: Do Narcissists Enjoy Kissing?

When it comes to relationships, there are many stages that couples go through. One of the most exciting stages is the love bombing stage. This is when one partner showers the other with love, affection, and attention. But what happens when a narcissist is the one doing the love bombing? Do they enjoy kissing their partner? The answer might surprise you.

Narcissists are known for their grandiosity, lack of empathy, and need for admiration. They often use love bombing as a way to manipulate their partner and gain control over the relationship. During this stage, they may appear to be the perfect partner, showering their significant other with compliments, gifts, and physical affection.

But do narcissists actually enjoy kissing their partner during this stage? The answer is yes and no. Narcissists may enjoy kissing their partner as a way to manipulate them and gain their trust. They may also enjoy the physical pleasure that comes with kissing. However, they may not actually feel any emotional connection to their partner during these kisses.

For a narcissist, kissing is often just another tool in their manipulation toolbox. They may use it to keep their partner hooked and under their control. They may also use it as a way to distract their partner from their true intentions.

So, if you are in the love bombing stage of a relationship with a narcissist, be cautious. Don’t let their physical affection cloud your judgment. Remember that their actions may not be genuine and that they may be using you for their own gain.

In conclusion, while narcissists may enjoy kissing their partner during the love bombing stage, it is often just another tool in their manipulation toolbox. Don’t let their physical affection cloud your judgment, and be cautious if you suspect that your partner may be a narcissist. Remember, a healthy relationship is built on trust, mutual respect, and genuine emotional connection.
