They have to be emotionally hurting a lot to get help.

Wow, narcissists are so teflon proof (i cant be mad at you). This article just seems to point out, like every other article out there the "you're screwed" philosophy of dating a narcissist.
And likewise, I guess the narcissist is screwed because there are all these people advising that no one should be in a relationship with one. I clicked on this article because it had a heading that, contrary to most articles about dating narcissists, sounded upbeat and positive. I thought I was going to get some sound advice for things to keep in mind and positive methods to dealing with a narcissist. I happen to be in love with one and this I did not choose.
Unless you are able to accept me as I am then I'll probably just keep hurting you." I could only laugh. I will look more closely next time I choose a partner!
