Bait and switch: Luring (or baiting) the potential, or current victim in with charm, kindness, affection and attention and once the victim is “hooked” (in love), the narcissist switches to being mean, demanding, inattentive and cruel. This is often seen after some sort of “landmark” event, such as the victim has moved in with the Narcissist, become engaged or married to them, pregnant, or given birth. The Bait and Switch is also referred to as the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde switch.
My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.
Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.
It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.
