Narcissists from your past can pop up in your life and leave just as quickly.

Your ex texts you out of nowhere and asks how you are doing. She tells you she misses you, and you don’t hear from her again until months later. You may have been breadcrumbed. Breadcrumbing is when a person gives you enough attention to “string you along” or makes you think they are interested in you. They will pop into your life and then disappear just as quickly. This behavior can make you feel hopeful but then confused and hurt. Breadcrumbing can be a typical behavior of narcissists and other toxic people.
