Plastic surgery Deviated septum = nose job How many times have you heard a girl say “I had a deviated septum” when talking about their nose job.You didn't have a deviated septum, you had a big nose!My family is rife with narcissists, so I grew up thinking selfish behavior was normal. Worse, when feelings are explained to him, he doesn’t care. Understandably, this opens a Pandora’s Box of problems within relationships.

The other day I was having to deal with a rather unpleasant 30-something year-old man who is causing problems for everyone in his life because he simply does not seem to think that the rules of society should apply to an unreasonable expectation of favorable treatment because they consider themselves to be special.

And when you fail to give them that special treatment – when you treat them fairly, just like you would anyone else – this can trigger a narcissistic rage.

At that time, we had only been dating a couple of months. To me, it seemed abnormal to prepare the roll and eat it, while offering me nothing.

This might not seem like a big deal, but it was combined with a couple of other things that gave me the first inkling that I was dating a narcissist. But if you are in a relationship that has left you feeling frustrated and you’re not sure why, you may well be with a narcissist. Because a narcissist is, by definition, someone who is completely self-involved, he has little or no ability to perceive how someone else is feeling.

While I don’t think that every self-absorbed guy necessarily fits the diagnostic criteria for narcissistic personality disorder, enough of us are in fact so egotistical (and demanding of special treatment) that our behavior quickly does become a problem for everyone around us.
