There has been this guy at the gym who is really in love with himself. He is always looking at himself in the mirror. This morning I went in the back to wash my hands and I caught him checking out his abs in front of the sinks. I watched a couple of nice looking women walk by him and he did not even glance at either of them. He was too busy looking at his own reflection in the mirror. He is in very good shape but still it is a little weird.
Do you think somebody could love themself so much that they cannot love anyone else?

Yes, but nothing you described suggests that that fella is a narcissist. First of all, the gym is a place to do work. Some of us aren’t as easily distracted as the part-timers and fakers. Second of all, if he’s chosen bodybuilding as a career or even as a competitive hobby, he needs to spend time looking in the mirror to evaluate himself in fair comparison to his competition. Also, if you’ve EVER created anything worth admiring, this wouldn’t even be a question. Without knowing his starting point, you can’t fairly judge his compulsion to examine his own progress. Lastly, he could be celibate or homosexual. Not noticing women isn’t a defect or aberration by any reasonable standard. In fact, i would argue it’s a strength in the current day and age.
