Do narcissists have better relationships with other narcissists?
No They only have better relationships with themselves.....
new answer: if 2 people have different forms of (pathological) narcissism they can have a relatively successful relationship but two cerebral narcissists, for example, would be fighting in no time.
Can a Narcissist ever have a meaningful long-term relationship or would it have to be with another Narcissist?
The relationships a narcissist has in his or her life are shallow and sick and twisted. Perhaps they have more relationships but they are not good quality relationships and the same level of intimacy is not there. Narcissists don't like intimacy (sharing emotions and personal private thoughts), if you try to get intimate with them they might even give you a look which says "don't even think about it" Dont offer them intimacy, that's too…
I don't thinks narcissists have been proven to be unfaithful in fact certain narcissists might pride themselves on being faithful in relationships. There are also different types of narcissists I'm not sure weather these types are officially recognized or not. and some may be more likely to be unfaithful than others.
* Narcissists are chameleons and can fit into almost any group of peers. They can even have your own family believe you are the cause of problems in your relationship. They're foxing, crafty and most of us aren't any match for them. Narcissists seldom every go for counseling and will eventually leave their present relationship when they get bored (but keep the person on a string to pull in when other relationships don't work out)…

They need to satisfy their sense of control. For instance, if you "dare" have another friend (other then the narcissist) then, he will be a better friend then you are to that friend. All of it is to escalate self importance and minimize the value of your friendship. Narcissists hate authentic relationships (because they've never had one) but are very good at mimicking them for the purpose of pretense and control of one's (anyone's) emotions.
Time really helps - you will survive - and you will come to the realisation that you are better off without them - relationships with narcissists are abusive and you don't need that - with time you should understand your true self-worth and that you deserve better than to be treated in the way that you were - these forums also really help to make you realise that you are not alone
