People with narcissistic tendencies are obsessed with the fantasy of an ideal and perfect relationship, while being skilled liars, so if your partner has these symptoms of this disorder you should be aware that he/she may have secret crushes or be having affairs, using pornography and/or conducting ‘cyber’ affairs (all the while lying that they are single) and all without your knowledge. If their mind often appears elsewhere (and they show other symptoms of this disorder) you should be aware this may be the reason.
