How to Protect Yourself from a Narcissist's Manipulation
Getting the Narcissists Out of My Life

My narcissistic friend is faking empathy

Back when I thought she was actually my friend, and I hadn't realized she was a narcissist who wouldn't hear anything I said, I tried to tell her that I saw a huge lack of empathy in her. Now, when we do converse she tries to fake empathy by making these superficially poignant statements. But her words are hollow and just a bit "off", you know?  So it comes off sounding kind of comical and truly bizarre.  Like she ate a sympathy card factory and is just spitting out the messages randomly.

It would be really sad if I weren't laughing so hard.  But it also illuminates the void which I suspected was inside her.  She really doesn't feel.  Her entire presence is just a facade erected to portray a human being, a false self.  There's nothing behind it.
