Why do I miss my Narcissistic Ex?

It is natural to miss your ex-partner after breaking up with them, even though they are a toxic narcissist. “So why do we miss our toxic exes?” The reasons are mentioned here below,

  • The Co-dependency – Narcissists often seek out partners who are willing to cater to their needs and fulfill their desires. This can create a co-dependent bond or a relationship between the partners where both of them rely on each other majorly for validation and seeking support.
  • Trauma Bonding – Narcissists often use manipulation and emotional abuse to create a bond with their partners. This can create a strong attachment pattern and further develop that pattern into attachment issues, making it difficult for both partners to move on unless they have found someone new already.
  • Fear of being Alone – Being in a relationship with a narcissist can create a sense of security and companionship. Fear of loneliness can make it really difficult to let go of the relationship even if it is toxic.
  • The Idealization phase – Narcissists often start relationships by idealizing their partners and showering them with attention and praise. This can create a sense of being valued and desired that can be hard to let go of.

Would a narcissist even miss you after the breakup as you do?

A narcissist would majorly not miss you as they already would have moved on from you to their new partner, but the only reason they might miss you is how you made them feel and how you were different from their current partner. They would actually not miss you but would miss how you made them feel and nothing more.

They might miss you for the affection you had for them as everyone especially narcissists craves attention and affection. They might miss your validation for their fake, unreal, and dual personality, they might miss what you did for them, how you made them feel, and the physical intimacy. Narcissists would not actually miss you for who you are or your feelings, but they might miss you for how you made them feel special and entitled and made them your priority.

Narcissists can truly regret losing you and also miss you indeed, but in reality, most of the time it is that they would actually miss and also regret how you made them feel with your presence in their life. A narcissist is capable of feeling all emotions, it is just that they do not acknowledge them and express them due to their vulnerabilities.

A narcissist may not regret losing you(their partner/lover/mate) or would not miss you as much as you miss them because they believe that they are always right, superior, and entitled to everything they want. They tend to have an excessive sense of self-importance and lack empathy for others. Therefore having regrets or feeling emotional damage after losing their partner may be perceived as a threat to their ego and reputation, and thus they would never do or feel anything that can damage their shiny high-end image in society.

Narcissists would choose to just shun their emotions and become emotionless after breaking up and hop onto their next victim as soon as possible after their breakup, rather than accepting the feeling that they regret or are upset by losing you which may be significant. Additionally, they may blame others or blame some external factors for their loss rather than taking responsibility for their actions.
