Dating Tips for Daughters of Narcissistic Fathers on Hello Freedom with Terri ColeToday I’m talking about narcissistic dads and the experience of their daughters in their dating and romantic lives (their sons have a very similar experience, so this might be useful for the sons out there).

You might remember that I did a podcast a couple weeks ago about daughters of narcissistic mothers because I had so many requests. There are so many people trying to understand how to heal from these damaging family relationships. And of course it’s super important to me to help you understand how having a narcissistic parent, a father in this case, can impact your life.

So today I’m talking about the characteristics of a narcissistic father and what that might mean for your love blueprint and dating life.
