I ended things beginning of October and have no plans of starting anything new anytime soon. With my previous ex (potential narc but pretty low grade) it took me about 6 months to try to put myself out there with the intention of meeting up with people, not just talking online. I noticed each rejection hurt much more, so after each one I had to take some time to heal. The thing is after my first potential narc, I never really faced the fact that it was abuse or worked through that. This relationship I just got out of broke me in a completely different way, and I’m trying to really focus on healing myself. So it may be a long time until I’m ready. I want to be as healed as possible so I don’t fall for a potential narc again.
