I wasn't sure where to post this so if it's in the wrong place please move it. I was thinking this might be good plot for a story if I knew enough about it. I've always been embarrassed to think I might be 'suffocating' someone, especially a man I'm interested, but I've noticed it doesn't seem to bother some women. So I did a little research on it. The first interesting article was a way to remedy it or stop it. The second concerns narcissistic personality traits. I'll start with the second. A narcissist constantly draws attention to herself at the expense of others. They feel entitled to it and become enraged when they don't get it. There's so much more in this particular article I'll post the link at the bottom Six subtle cues: 1. React in an aggrieved way when they feel they've been treated poorly. 2. Annoy you in ways you don't understand 3. Don't feel the rules apply to them and break them in small, but consistent ways. 4. Are not easily coached, if at all. 5. Change schedules and appointments for no reason. My guess is this is a good way to control situations. 6. Narcissists demand your attention because to them, it's urgent Since I've quoted some of the above verbatim I'll embolden them, etc. In the first article, which I just discovered I've lost, lol, there were suggestions for suffocating relationships. I'll find it and come back to this. The above article is from Psychology Today, Suffocating in a Relationship. I'll find the actual link and post it.
