Do narcissists attract each other in relationships? If so, how long or likely is the relationship/marriage to last?
Contrary to other answers, they very much do. They are finding someone who actually gets them or even mutual empathy since its been suggested that narcissists and sociopaths can actually empathise with eachother on some level. Their mask can be taken off and the other will only be more attracted to them-instead of wanting to vomit-they idealise this goal of the narcissist. They create a team, enabling eachother to use their behaviour externally. For example a covert narc may need an overt one to gather ‘friends' for them, and may idealise the overt, because even knowing they are narcissistic will see them as some ubermensch. The covert offers more intellectualised idealism for the overt and the overt having control over their social connection has control over them. I think its is very much on a fullfillment of needs basis. It could work for a while, but as others have said when manipulation has been sussed it could be a discard after having a honeymoon phase. And whilst during this honeymoon phase it may be genuine attraction: finally finding some who sees the world as i do so we can hate everyone together, it becomes like a mirror-it reminds them of their npd traits which is what narcissists are afraid of, and will bend space-time to avoid admitting.
