In this paper, I investigated the relationship between narcissistic personality and present or past interpersonal experiences with the opposite sex. Subjects were 383 students (mean age 19.61 years). They were asked to rate their attitude to the opposite sex, their present heterosexual relationships, the six love styles based on J.A. Lee's theory (1973,1974), and their past experiences of romantic love. The narcissistic personality inventory short version developed by Oshio (NPI-S; 1999) was also conducted. The NPI-S contains three subscales : a sense of superiority and competence (SC), need for attention and praise (AP), and self-assertion (SA). The results were as follows : First, SC and SA were relevant to close relationships with the opposite sex, while AP had relevance to hypersensitivity to an evaluation from the other sex. Secondly, the NPI-S and SC showed significant, positive correlations with Eros and Pragma, and SC showed significant, negative correlations with Ludus. AP was positively correlated with Mania and Eros. SA was positively correlated with Eros. These relationships were typical of females. Thirdly, those who were disappointed in love in the last few months reported higher scores on AP than those who weren't. Those who have dated with more people reported higher scores on SA.
