All narcissists get bored with their partner. How long does idealization last?
Answered by: Gaylon Mcgillicutty
Well as long as the narcissist doesn't get bored. Basically, when the supply does not have the means to entertain them. Narcissist do alot of what they do to avoid reality. With that said, they idealize people through a rather fantasy driven sight. I actually call it idolizing instead of idealizing. Because thats really what they do. They put a supply on a pedestal untill reality sets in and the narcissist can't idolize the supply due to the fact that the supply is the only one accepting realistic things. Narcissist are in love with the IDEA of being in love. Not the actual process of building a relationship and strengthing the true bond of love. Narcissist, in there fantasy driven motives, want to stay in the “ honeymoon “ phase forever. Realistically, that cannot happen. So that to is an answer to this question. Ever how long the “ honeymoon “ phase can last, the sex everyday, buying them gifts, vacations, you name it. Anything that entertains them other than reality. This is one area where most victims cause the most damage to themselves because at first, they honestly try to keep the narcissist entertained. Eventually they run out of resources. Money, credit, even running there own bodies into the ground trying to keep up with the narcissist demands. At that point, even the victim becomes addicted to the idealization phase because, rather they know it or not, its the only connection to the narcissist that they have. The idealization phase is as good as it will ever get with a narcissist. Sadly, the narcissist knows that from the beginning.
How long will the idealization phase last? How much ya got in your bank account? How many days vacation do ya have saved up? How healthy are ya? Ever tried to have sex while fighting off the flu? Lol! Answer those questions and you'll have your answer. To easy!
Yaw be good to one another and i mean that.
