  • codependency is very unhealthy. my husband is a codependent and I doubt they would do good with narcissists. they tend to be stuck to addictive people and people with personality disorders.

  • That's exactly what happens: the narcissist will find the co-dependent person.

  • I misread the question. Yes a narcissist will seek out the codependent, not likely the other way around I would think though. Codependents tend to gravitate to people with problems so they can "fix" them... Narcissists like to appear that they don't have problems.
