Everyone has the capability to display narcissistic tendencies, however very few, and I mean very few people actually have narcissistic personality disorder. It’s a word that’s just thrown around these days. It’s more likely just manipulation/defensiveness at not wanting to be called out for shitty behaviour. Which the majority of people do in relationships. If you genuinely want to leave just be the bigger person and let him take what he wants. He’s probably just saying it to be petty anyway
Narcissistic personality disorder involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding.
I don’t think there’s enough that’s happened to determine if he’s a narcissist yet, but these are some of the red flags. Fights are complicated because everyone has defensive patterns that can be misconstrued for narcissism. His sounds like deflection. The petty thing about leaving is worrisome though. Make sure he knows you can’t be manipulated by these items. He shouldn’t try to control you and he’ll pay child support either way. 🚩 inflated ego and accomplishments 🚩will try to isolate you from friends and family 🚩once complimented everything you did and now criticizes everything you do 🚩always acts like the hero or the victim 🚩shows no empathy 🚩manipulation to make themselves look like the victim or like the righteous one
That’s definitely a manipulator and a narcissist. They always try to hold control and throw you under the bus so it takes the attention off what he’s done and put it on you so he doesn’t have to deal with accountability.
idk about npd since there’s not much to go on plus i’m no expert but he defo does sound manipulative and if you have suspicions, it might be worth speaking to someone who may know better like an expert or a women’s charity etc. in order to figure out what to do, especially if you wanna get away from him
