From Narcissistic Relationships to Narcissistic Bosses

So I stopped being attracted to Narcissistic people and now I have a new pattern where I am attracting/attracted to Narcissistic Bosses.

I remember my last terrible relationship choice. It was with a tech bro in San Francisco. He was really annoying and kept asking me to twerk on the date. He treated me like a stripper which sometimes I may or may not have been. Still unsure about that time in my life it’s all a blur. Anyway. I remember twerking to the song Don’t by Bryson Tiller and hating myself in his penthouse apartment. I remember having a full disconnection from my body. I was floating on the ceiling while he ogled my body and made me feel like a cheap steak.

I remember driving home in my Prius as he asked me to come to a work event with him where he would show off my legs to his coworkers. I told him no thank you. I got in my car and drove away. It was the first time I realized that this wasn’t the first tech date that went wrong that I was going on. I had done this several times. I had been in this situation where I compromised my own values for the sake of wanting to feel like I was attractive in the eyes of someone who was narcissistic.
