I dont have a problem being involved with another narc..long as there is some self awareness and a desire to want to do better for the relationship (so it stays a win-win). I can also see an overt Narcissist and a covert Narcissist getting along quite well, especially since covert Narcissists reportedly need an overt Narcissist to truly allow their own Narcissism to flourish. Very shallow, such as how rich, successful, physically attractive, high status a potential mate appears on the outside, or some other feature that shows a potential for exploitation or some form of gain.
Currently recovering from a relationship with one with NO self awareness and NO desire to do any work. Do keep in mind though that with Narcissists, the "stuff" that they're looking for, or the "public image," are all really just for purposes of confirmation of sense of self. The way I understand it, a Covert Narcissist gets fulfillment out of enabling Overt Narcissists, without necessarily having classic Narc traits such as lack of empathy, sense of entitlement, feelings of superiority, etc. So the two begin to date, but I can see how problems can quickly arise.
Two narcissists of the same type (somatic, cerebral, classic, compensatory, inverted, etc.) cannot maintain a stable, long-term full-fledged, and functional relationship.
There are two types of narcissists: the somatic narcissist and the cerebral narcissist.
Both Borderlines and Narcissists struggle with what I've coined, Bottomless Pit Syndrome or BPS.
You've probably heard by now, that these two personality types are drawn to each other, but might have wondered why this is true.Then once one of the two catch on that the other is an NPD (even if not self-aware, they could recognize similar personality traits), that is probably when he or she decides to discard the other.Because he or she realizes the fellow NPD will not ultimately contribute anything of value to the relationship, is probably trying to exploit him or her just as she or he trying to exploit the other (subconsciously or not).Consider what it would be like to expect constant adoration, recognition and reassurance from someone who has the very same needs.I'd be interested in knowing more about the basis of this question (i.e., what motivates you to ask it)?
