I read somewhere that a relationship based on addictive infatuation wears off after 18 months to 3 years so it stands to reason this is a safe time frame, but obviously every relationship is affected by the people involved.There is no universal answer to your question.

They may only need a temporary supply or they may find the new person isn't malleable enough. In that case the relationship can be extremely short-lived.

Can a narcissist maintain a long term relationship?

To a point. But it will always be somewhat shallow, and will mostly revolve around only them. You might be able to salvage some relationship with a person who goes in and out of Narcissistic behaviors but a true Narcissist has only enough room for themselves. Sad, but true. Depends on their level of Narcissism/ Some hard core ones will never give anyone else top billing but themselves. So a relationship involving another person is all an illusion. They will always put themselves first, and demand the right to do so. It is a lousy way to go through life. They miss out on a lot. But you can;t change them or tell them any different. It is their world view and is ingrained in them, often for life. It is a life sentence for them and anyone who has the misfortune to be around them.
