Narcissists excel at infatuation. That’s their thing. Infatuation is intense, it’s based on fantasy and it does not require the real person to show up. The object of desire is merely a narcissistic extension of the narcissist himself. The trophy wife, the gorgeous hunk, the hot young girlfriend, the boy toy, whatever.
Just Say No To Narcissists.
Amy Selwyn

Very well put, not a single point missed!
