Sam, I recently learned that I am empathic. This epiphany explains why I am drawn to certain people, like narcissists. I recently went out with someone who is displaying narcissist tendencies a few times and really clicked with her. But I know it can't work. She will eat me alive. This makes me relieved and sad all at once. I really liked her. I could use a pat on the back and an "it'll be alright."
