• Is it deliberate?

    Sometimes I wonder if you know what you’re doing when you look at me, catch my eyes, when sharing a laugh. I sometimes look away, but my gaze is inexorably drawn back to yours.

    Mostly I think, No. Why would you want to reinforce a sense of closeness, intimacy, attachment? I assume it’s just a natural, unintentional behavior, just as this… pleasure-pain sensation? in my heart is natural response to the perceived potential connection.

    But what if you know? What could be your aim in stirring up feelings that can go nowhere? Manipulation? It seems irrelevant to our situation. What possible motive could you have?

    Perhaps the same as I have?

      Narcissists do this. He just wants to see if you’ll take the bait. It will make him feel powerful. Don’t give away your power. Keep it. You don’t wanna play with fools like this.

        I doubt it’s narcissism; a person would starve trying to get their narcissistic supply from me. It could be practicing interpersonal skills/hacks with a “safe” target. I still think it’s probably unintentional, though – just because it feels… intimate? to me doesn’t me it’s actually anything out of the ordinary. (And I’m not sure the word “intimate” has the right connotation – it’s not really suggestive or salacious or anything like that.)
