13 Signs You’re Dating a ‘Nice Guy’ Narcissist 


In this article, I’m going to talk about what I consider the most dangerous type of narcissist: the nice guy narcissist. When I say “guy,” this could easily apply to a female as well. The nice guy narcissist is particularly dangerous because no one suspects them.

If someone is showing signs of being kind, caring, and considerate, and does a lot for other people, you will initially think they are a very nice person. You would not suspect that they actually have very low empathy, put themselves first, and find it very difficult to see your perspective. This realization can be quite shocking and traumatic when you find out that this person is a narcissist and not the nice person they present themselves to be. If you end up getting romantically involved with this person, it can be particularly upsetting, shocking, and distressing because you realize you’ve developed romantic feelings for someone who is not who they pretended to be.

I’m going to talk you through 13 signs that someone might be a nice guy narcissist.
