9 Signs You May Have Fallen For A Narcissist

Narcissists often seem like the perfect partner -- until they're not.

It’s easy to fall in love with a narcissist: They’re charming, exude self-confidence and shower you with compliments and attention, at least in the beginning.

Maintaining a relationship with a narcissist is not so easy. In the video above, Psych2Go points out nine signs that you’re in an emotionally manipulative relationship with a narcissist.

One warning sign? Emotional detachment.
