I am not sure what "meaningful" means - but many narcissists have long term relationships with their sources of supply (not necessarily with other narcissists).

THE NARCISSIST CEREBRAL/SOMATIC AND THE OPPOSITE SEX This chapter deals with the male narcissist and with his "relationships" with women. It would be correct to substitute one gender for another. Female narcissists treat the men in their lives in a manner indistinguishable from the way male narcissists treat "their" women. I believe that this is the case with same sex partners. To re-iterate, Primary Narcissistic Supply (PNS) is any kind of NS provided by people who are not "meaningful" or "significant" others. Adulation, attention, affirmation, fame, notoriety, sexual conquests

No- a narcissist is a narsiccist- no matter who they choose to victimize. Don't worry, it just takes them alittle while to turn up that heat in the kitchen, but it will get hot!!

Will a narcissist who just ended a 6-year relationship with you and has rebounded into another relationship immediately after you eventually treat his new woman the same way?

Almost certainly. ********** It most likely depends on whether or not the person in the new relationship is willing to feed his or her ego indefinitely. However, whenever the person "fails" the narcissist in his or her grandiose vision of how perfect and excellent their lives together are supposed to be, it's likely that that person will be totally devalued and discarded.

Does narcissist regret losing their source of supply?

A narcissist does not have a conscience. They will find a new source of narcissist supply or already have another source as a back up if they no longer can obtain the fix from the current victim.

A narcissist doesn't always use another woman as N supplyit can be another source right?

Yes, I believe that this is true, it doesn't have to be another woman. I have recently witnessed someone that I believe is a narcissist (but not a malignant narcissist) go FROM an NS of male friends TO an NS of another woman. But the male friends were the NS for quite some time. I think the narcissist will use as an NS anyone - male or female - that satisfies his need for narcissistic supply.

What would a narcissist say to one if you tell them that you only want a casual relationship with them?

Most likely they wouldn't want a relationship with you if they couldn't benefit from it whether casual or not. If they feel they can benefit and manipulate you out of something, then the game playing begins. Be aware, they will immediately manipulate ways to get whatever they want and then will disappear after receiving it. Again, narcissist cannot be casual in any setting, they have to be the winners or they want nothing at all. If you are living a decent lifestyle, especially better than theirs, they can not be spectators of another's happiness. If they can damage your happiness, then they would agree to the "casual" relationship. A narcissist always have a game plan. If you are naive in thinking you can have any type of relationship with these people, then you will post another painful question as so many others.

Narcissist in love with a narcissist?

It's certainly possible. A narcissist may date another narcissist that is more selfish than they are to feel better about themselves. In turn say "i'm not as selfish as he/she is so that makes me above him/her). It's incredible and shocking the way people with this disorder think. It takes a lot of research to understand a narcissist.
