When Your Perfect Partner Goes Perfectly Wrong!

Have you ever been, or are you currently involved with someone who is: • Egotistical and controlling? • Has no empathy or compassion? • Feels that rules don’t apply to them? • Acts like they think they’re God? • Believes they’re more important than others? • Is NEVER happy no matter what you do?

If so, you may be involved with a narcissist.

They can be your intimate partner, friend, boss, parent, or anyone in your life.

Their victims are left with self-doubt, confusion, stress, anxiety, guilt, and depression. And worst of all, until you figure out who these predators are and how to avoid them, statistics show us that you’ll likely end up repeating your pattern over and over again! So ...

  • If he or she seems like Mr. or Ms. Right, but something just seems wrong…
  • If you’ve ever been with a mate who was into controlling and manipulating you…
  • And if you continually feel like you’re the only one who compromises in your relationships and you’re getting sick of it …

You won’t want to miss this meeting on understanding narcissistic people and how you can protect yourself from them in all walks of your life, whether they be the jerk at work or the jerk in your bed. (Or even dear old Mom or Dad!)

And you don't have to be a single to attend this event!

Why? Well, this is my once a year presentation on this topic to help educate the masses about this crazy phenomenon called narcissism that's out there in epidemic proportions causing mayhem and madness on a huge scale.

So you single folks can even bring your married buddies to this meetup if it might help them in their relationships as well.

As a survivor of several narcissistic relationships myself and the author of When Your Perfect Partner Goes Perfectly Wrong - The Survivor's Guide to Loving or Leaving the Narcissist in Your Life, I interviewed countless folks from around the country to get real stories of both victims and survivors of these complicated relationships.

In addition, people consult with me on this topic from as far away as London! This situation is RAMPANT in our world but simply not understood and rarely talked about with understanding of how to avoid it, leave it, and not get enmeshed in it again!

As unbelievable as it sounds, many therapists are not even well versed in this destructive behavior! And of course, most narcissists are such cunning actors that even if you have gone to therapy as a couple, it is frequently the victim who looks like the crazy one and the narcissist who looks like the poor, sad victim!

The format of this Meetup will be more lecture than small table discussion, as I have a Power Point I'll use to teach you the details of these cunning and manipulative predators. I can guarantee that you will walk away amazed at what you didn't know you didn't know about these manipulative people who have so many of us tied up in knots!

Of course you’ll still meet lots of new single people, and you’ll learn more tricks of the trade on your journey to finding healthy love. What’s not to love for $10?

PLEASE NOTE - FOR THIS MEETUP WE WILL BE BACK AT BREK BREWERY AS IT LENDS ITSELF BETTER TO THIS FORMAT.

    This meeting took the blaming piece out and made it easier to understand both sides of the relationship. It allowed me to move on without guilt. Great Class!

    I had dismissed exe #1's emotional & physical abuse as a byproduct of her borderline personality disorder and I suppose in a way it was. However, by the broad definition provided for narcissism, she was also a narcissist. What did click into place for me was my own repeated behavior of finding such a nut to make me miserable. Wittness exe number 2 and the best friend/boss/dissabller I had prior to either of these relationships. (Thanks mom!)

    Lars, I had an instructor in art collage tell about his abusive relationship. His wife actually pushed him down a flight of stairs & broke his arm & collerbone. I remember being stund. One because he told me about it most all. However I never thought that a woman could or would do that(now this was about 21 years ago)men did not talk about this stuff. It inspired an art pease I did that year. However, if you would be so inclined I would like to hear more such stories. Hearing them shows me personally that men are just as human as we are. It also teaches me how a man deals with this stuff. Do they react the same way women do? From what my instuctor told me after a 5 year marrage of hell, he finally left & took all 3 of his kids with him. He said one of the hardest things for him was standing up in front of a judge & tell his story in order to get his kids. Have your friends been in simaller situations?
    I'm very courious as to how men deal with this verses women or are they the same?

    I personally was not offended, but as you know, some males were.
    My comment were offered in the spirit of constructive feedback! Men do share their experiences with other men and individuals they feel would understand. If you like, I can share some of their experiences with you. There's plenty of them out there!

    A great topic to learn about. I learned some new ways to deal with them and what they are.

    Hey Lars -
    Too bad you didn't hear me at the beginning of last night's workshop when I pointed out that narcissists could be both men or women, but that guys who are victims rarely talk about it, so it's harder to have as many "women abuser stories" as men as abuser stories. I mean how many guys are comfy admitting to their pals, much less strangers ... "Yea, my wife physically and sexually abuses me all the time?" So if you thought I was male bashing, as you put it, please don't. I'm "Narcissist bashing." Just have to get more men to speak up and share their stories with me before I can share them in this format.

    Holy Cow - What a turnout! An eager bunch to learn about this crazy phenomenon called narcissism. And everyone seemed thrilled to leave with lots of new tools in their tool box to deal with these predators!

    I can say honestly that this semminar was very enlightening. It has opened my eys to the kind of men I choose to be in my life & it also showed my where & when in my life, Who in my growing up life made me think that a narsassistic man is normal & that was how they were suppose to be & why I have continued to attact them & allowed them in my life. With this new information, I see I need to a lot more work with my conseler in this area & reverce my thinking about what is ok & what isn't. What's healthy & what isn't. I have also been shown that I need to work on my skills on how to deal with these people so they can't suck me in & play their game. (Primerally my unger brother) It was a sad realazation, but a good one. When you made the statement that they will often accuse you of being things that they are quite offten discribing them selves, it really hit home. Thank you very much Mary Jo for your insight & the time you took last night to share this information. It was an eye opener

    Good class I feel like a lot of good information was passed along hopefully to help recognize when it might be time to Graciously withdraw.

    October 11, 2012

  • Lars

    The examples could be gender balanced equally, so people don't think male bashing is occurring!

    Can this place handle this many people comfortably or are we going to be like stuffed sardines in a can? I would rather be comfortable than cramped.
