Having a relationship with an ex girlfriend boyfriend wife or husband (pick one ) after a break up can be hard and even worst awkward. Psychologists at Oakland University have done a study to find out why some couples are able to maintain some kind of friendship or post- relationship if you want to call it that after a divorce or break up. The study had 860 participants and scientists found that those couples who were able to remain friends after a relationship is done were “they’re more likely to have ‘dark triad’ personality traits which would include narcissism and psychopathy.” Kind of heavy huh! Some separated couples especially where children are involved are more likely to find a public parking lot such as a church parking lot or a train station to make the necessary exchange so everyone’s happy and not have to deal with a psychopath!! According to huffingtonpost.ca, “”Narcissists hate to fail or lose, so will do what they can to maintain some connection if they didn’t make the choice to end it. That from narcissism expert Dr Tony Ferretti, “people with “dark” personality traits (especially narcissistic ones) would want to hang on to past relationships — make sense because these types of people value relationships in terms of self-interest”. In short the psycho Mom OR Dad should be avoided.
