When relationships become a victim of narcissism, the aggrieved half is a victim of what is being referred to as love bombing.
Love bombing basically refers to excessive display of intense emotions, affection, and attention that someone gives to another in a love relationship. It’s not mere flattery and romantic gestures or giving flowers and gifts etc. It could be extreme manipulation to gain trust and build intimacy in the early stages of a relationship.
Narcissists’ self-love makes them use flattery and attention as tools to build them up as the perfect partners
When someone is not getting what they want from someone they love, they should ask the person to talk about it.
