has revealed something that is surprisingly accurate.

The survey looked at over 2,000 adults and found that the majority of young adults out there are super confused as to whether they’re actually on a date…

We've looked into the research and found the traits you are likely to encounter if you meet a narcissist, or the warning signs if you're already dating one.

How do we really know if he is the right guy for us? I found myself dating the same type of person three times in a row over two years who was not good for me.

You do anything you can to avoid spending actual time with them, because you feel uncomfortable and awkward around them.

The way they flick their hair over their shoulder when they’re angry was once endearing – now it just makes them look like a sulky brat. You don’t feel comfortable to just blurt out the first thing that comes into your head out of fear of their reaction, and that’s not right.

Someone who is grandiose, has a lack of empathy for other people, and has a desperate need for admiration and attention is often described as having Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD.) In Greek Mythology, Narcissus was known for his own beauty and was in love with himself.

In reality, narcissism is when someone is obsessed with an idealised version of themselves, which they project to avoid facing their real, damaged self.

We label it as ‘complicated’ or we find ourselves dating the same type of men who are not good for us instead of admitting that it’s just not working.
