This is actually not their primary preference, they would prefer you adore them, though they do not deserve it, and defer to them in all things, including your thoughts and feelings.
They believe they can tell you how to think and feel and control your reactions to life and themselves, and in that they confirms, in their own mind, their god-like status.
How can a man verify a woman’s character quickly, so that he doesn’t get caught up in a relationship with a woman who is unlikely to be monogamous over the long-term?
If a man avoids one thing in a woman, he will increase his chances of long-term happiness a thousand fold: It used to be that the word narcissist wasn’t thrown around lightly.
The Narc apologized (hah) and I got to doing some research. Turns out, I really am the perfect narcissistic supply.
In milder cases of narcissism, the avoidance of apology is subtle and less visible to those who might legitimately expect a sincere apology.
What a narcissist seems to do instead of apologizing is to attempt to repair his or her grandiose self under the guise of making reparations.
If anything, an apology from a narcissist is yet another way of exercising his power and control over you in order to get what he wants — Narcissistic Supply.
They lie all the time and faking an apology is no different.
