By that time the sociopath will not need you to satisfy any of his basic needs, and will see you instead for what you really are--probably a weak-willed whining sissy.
Think this is unnecessarily complicated and time-intensive?
A Narcissist is only returning back to the relationship to get a “quick fix” on his addiction.
Much like in the beginning when meeting a Narcissist, he puts on a great act, and he uses his best performance to lure you in and win you over!
In reality, though most victims want to believe this behavior is based upon his real and genuine desire of wanting to be with them, and wanting the relationship to work, the sad truth is..
This may seem very passive-aggressive, but after about three months (give or take), the sociopath will be out of your life.
You should be in the clear after your sociopath has been gone three to six months.
As time passes, you immediately notice a drastic change in his behavior, the way he treats you and the cycles of idealization and devaluation begin to root!
This process continues on, even during the break up stages! Once you validate him by responding to him in any way, shape or form, he’s got his fix and he will move on to the next best high.
