Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Dear friend,

The man who cheated on his girlfriend numerous times is a narcissist. He needs lots of women to fulfill his "narcissistic supply", as it is called in the study of narcissism.

As a narcissist he is a sociopath, meaning he can lie and con with impunity. Most con-artists are narcissists and can charm anyone and get away with the most outrageous lies. They can even pass a lie detector test.

Narcissists have no empathy for others. They cannot feel or care about the pain or suffering of others.

They manipulate others to their own ends. One of the common behaviors is to accuse their victims (his girlfriend) of the very wrongdoings he has done. He is the whore and the liar, not her.

The technique of the narcissist is to provoke the victim and then throw them off balance into a negative state of mind, where they upset or angry. They love to turn the tables like this.

I would not trust continuing this this relationship. There is little to know hope of a happy outcome.

I wish great blessings on her, and on you, her friend who cares a great deal.

Warm regards,
