My dating advice for everyone, ever: don't hang around people who can't think a thing without saying it.
I plan on getting old and having pets regardless of relationship status.
@bluewindgirl Try pitying her.
Just as you would never follow a hippie to a second location, never ask a narcissist what you can do for them. Tell them what you'll do and then hold your ground.
