He is back: The Narcissist and patience
Patience is greatest virtue a hunter has to possess in order to pounce upon and kill his prey. Any organism that has predatory skills has to cultivate the virtue of endurance and staying power until the right time is available. A clever, genuine Sociopath will wait years before he pounces on his victim in order to ensure that he does not make a mistake.
Do not underestimate the ability of the narcissist to be patient. He does not like to rush things. He wants to be entirely in control when the time comes. He does not want to be in a situation where he is vulnerable. He wants to know that all the cards will be on his side. He will play it cool until he knows that you are right where he wants you and then he will throw out his fishing line and reel you in for the feast that he has been planning for you.
Narcissist and sociopaths are the most patient individuals alive and like any other predator they will wait as long as it takes because they do not want to make a mistake. They will be placid and lay back until they know the time is right. Like wolves, they will lay low in the shadows, planning a strategic attack on their innocent unsuspecting victims. Sometimes the prey is aware of the predator but has this confidence that they will be able to elude the kill, only to find themselves back on the slaughter board. Do not think that he has decided to let you live your life. Predators will never give their prey the ability to go on without their interference.
He will watch the woman of his desire and try to pinpoint her weaknesses. He will seek out information about her. He will watch her movements, likes and dislikes before he approaches her. A narcissist will study what he thinks women want and will give them exactly what they want. It does not matter how long it takes him to learn your habits, desires and what your ideal partner is.
The narcissist will haste a relationship is when he wants to consummate it for fear you will rescind before he has hooked you. When he is ascertain that you are fond of him, then he will take of his sheep clothing and the wolf will step out with fangs and a ferocious attitude.
By that time you are already too deep to extract yourself. This if further cemented if you are married and or have children. It will be more difficult to sever ties with the narcissist since you have a legal or biological connection him.
Do not underestimate the narcissist. He will want to come back and wait until the most convenient time to pop up back. Some narcissist depending on how harrowing and bitter your break up was will wait until they think you have gotten over their misdemeanor and atrocities. They will return without offering an apology or explanation. They will search you out and when they find you. They will devour and leave you wounded again.
The narcissist will withdraw to the shadows and resurface when the time is right. When he is assured that you have been healed. He will come back when he thinks that you are just on the edge of getting over him. If it takes him several months or several years, he will come back to get the thrill he wants. The thrill of conquering, controlling and annihilating your sense of self and personal opinion of your own worth. If his narcissistic supplies runs out, rest assure, he will be knocking at your door but do not let that man back in.
