The greater the status, the higher the value the Narcissist places on the Supply derived.Once a target has been chosen, it’s almost like the Narcissist gets tunnel vision.They do not feel love and they lack the ability to connect and form normal attachment bonds with others. Because their entire sense of self-esteem and self-worth is dependent on the admiration of others, their emotions are a precarious balance of needing others and needing to be left alone. This void is ever present and the only thing that fills it, is the love and esteem of another. A Narcissist describes it this way, “It’s like my brain is constantly seeking something.
They become moody and agitated easily, blaming you for even the slightest transgression.
They start to disappear more frequently and they give you the silent treatment in an attempt to create distance.
Suddenly the attention they so lavishly gave you is gone and replace by indifference and silence.
Days or weeks could go by and you won’t hear from them.
They shower their targets with attention, compliments and literally sweep them off their feet.
