It is extremely rare if this does not happen when you have a romantic entanglement with a narcissist.
For most people, it is the physical/sexual act of infidelity which troubles them the most, but infidelity may also appear in a financial sense (spending money on someone else the narcissist is romantically entangled with, using that money for someone else without the victim’s agreement or consent), emotionally (where the narcissist ‘confides’ in another about how he or she feels, or provides that person with apparent support but does not do so for their partner, spending extensive amounts of time with someone else and not their partner) or intellectually (engaging in various pursuits and interests with another person, but not their partner and which troubles that partner).
Such acts are often suspected and sometimes known about. The narcissist may be bold in his acts of infidelity, uncaring that he is spotted and may even boast about them to the victim. Sometimes, eager to maintain the facade of respectability, the narcissist engages in repeated affairs and trysts but do so secretly and discretely leaving the victim totally unaware or just with the whiff of suspicion. Occasionally, driven by the acts of infidelity of the narcissist the victim may find comfort in the arms and mind of another – usually another narcissist, but that is a different matter.
