Narcissists see the world and others in binary terms—good or bad, black or white, “with me or against me.” The person targeted by the Narcissist as a potential mate is seen as “perfect” – showered with special treatment, affection, and attention, and put on a pedestal; also called “love-bombing.” The target might feel as if they are living a Disney fairy tale. But when the target proves to be imperfect, the Narcissist cannot see them realistically – as a human being, with a mixture of strengths and flaws.
