It sounds like an alien trying to explain how they imagine human emotions might feel. They won’t care because he/she strategically distracts them with shallow praise (often done over social networking).

The ex becomes one of the most frequent topics of discussion in your relationship. You find yourself explaining the basic elements of human respect to a full-grown man/woman. After the idealization phase, they will give none of this back to you. It’s always very eerie when they slip and accidentally use the wrong mask for you. Any ex-partner or friend who did not come crawling back to them will likely be labeled jealous, bipolar, an alcoholic, or some other nasty smear. If you’re self-conscious about your looks, they'll call you the sexiest person in the world.

Gives you the silent treatment and becomes very annoyed that you seem to be interested in continuing the passionate relationship that they created. You will start to feel that their personality just doesn’t seem to add up. They will speak about you the same way to their next target. If you’ve got a need to entertain, they'll say you’re the funniest person they've ever known.They text you dozens, if not hundreds of times per day.

There is always an excuse for everything, even things that don’t require excusing.You come to rely on this over-communication as a source of confidence. When devaluing, they use these comparisons to hurt you. They make up lies faster than you can question them.They bait previously denounced exes with old songs and inside jokes. These people make you feel jealous and give off the perception that your partner is in high-demand. Hyperbolizes emotions while displaying none of them.They make passionate statements like “I’ve never felt so happy in my life” in a completely robotic voice. Others will think they're the nicest person in the world, even though they are used for money, resources, and attention.They will always blame others—it is never their fault. Total absence of anxiety, fear, and worry where there otherwise should be. You write this off as calm and cool, often feeling inferior and over-sensitive because you have normal human emotions. Insults you with a condescending, joking sort of attitude. Teasing becomes the primary mode of communication in your relationship.
