The Symptoms of a Narcissist Woman

A need for admiration and worship
Narcissists feel entitled to constant admiration and worship from others, even if it’s not always warranted or deserved. This can be seen as a way of compensating for a lack of self-esteem or self-worth. Women who are narcissists may feel very vulnerable when they don’t receive the admiration they crave, which can lead them to behave in ways that will earn them attention (such as being flirtatious or manipulative).
A grandiose sense of self-importance

They may have a wide array of unrealistic expectations about themselves, which often leads to feelings of frustration and resentment when they don’t receive the accolades they believe they deserve. Women who are narcissists may also be preoccupied with their looks, their sexual appeal, or their achievements – anything that gives them an inflated sense of self-worth.
A need for control over relationships.
Narcissists are often paranoid and controlling in their relationships, meaning they feel the need to always be in charge. They may micromanage everything from the way their partners dress to the details of their conversations, as a way of feeling in control. Women who are narcissists may also be hypersensitive to any perceived slight or critique, which can cause them great emotional pain.
A lack of empathy for others.
Narcissists are often cold and unemotional towards others, which can make it difficult for them to form meaningful connections with anyone. They may see others as nothing more than objects or tools to be used for their gain and have little or no empathy for their feelings or emotions. Women who are narcissists may also be unwilling or unable to forgive those who have hurt them in the past – meaning that any relationship they enter into is usually fraught with suspicion and mistrust.

How Can a Narcissist Woman Impact You?
Narcissists are often very charismatic and charming, which can make them difficult to resist.

Narcissistic women can be demanding and controlling, expecting their partners to do everything for them. They may also be deceptive, making you believe something that isn’t true.

This can have a serious impact on your confidence and self-esteem and can make it very difficult to build healthy relationships.
You may become entangled in her world
If you’re attracted to a Narcissistic woman, you’ll likely be drawn into her world. She may be able to control you completely, and you may find it difficult to break free. This can lead to resentment and a feeling of being trapped. Which can be incredibly damaging emotionally and psychologically.
You may experience emotional abuse

This might include accusations of being ungrateful. And also being told how much better things would be if you were more like her. Or being made to feel guilty for wanting different things in life. It can be incredibly damaging, both physically and emotionally.
You may find it difficult to establish any boundaries in your relationship, feeling like she controls everything

How to Deal with a Narcissist Woman?
If you’re in a relationship with a woman who is a narcissist, there are certain things you can do to try and make things work. Here are five tips to get through to a narcissistic woman:
When your partner starts talking about themselves in the third person or making grandiose claims that they know better than anyone else, simply disagreeing respectfully will help set boundaries. It’s important not to come across as confrontational or challenging their authority, as this will only incite further narcissistic behavior.
Speak up for yourself
Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself and voice your opinions when necessary. Narcissists often view themselves as superior individuals who don’t need advice from others. So it can be difficult for them to understand why you might disagree with them
Avoid power struggles
A key part of the narcissist’s modus operandi is controlling and manipulating other people. So resist trying to do the same thing back to them. Instead, try to focus on maintaining healthy relationships with friends and family members. These are who can provide support when you need it
Keep your cool and keep your distance
If things become too overwhelming or you begin to feel like you can’t escape, it’s important to take a step back and reassess the situation. Remember, trying to get close to a narcissist will only result in more hurt and disappointment.
Keep communication open
Even if things are difficult, it’s important to keep communication open with your partner. Narcissists often thrive on secrecy and manipulation, so being able to talk about what’s going on will help both of you manage the situation more effectively.
As a woman, it can be difficult to know how to deal with a narcissist. All of the attention they seem to crave can feel like an oppressive force. Also, It can be hard not to react emotionally. But while reacting emotionally might make you feel better for the moment, it’s important to remember that a narcissist will never change. If you want them out of your life for good, the only way to do that is to stand up to them and refuse to give them what they want.
