5 Signs Youre Dating A Cheating Narcissist

Have you ever encountered a dating partner who swept you off your feet, courted you persistently and made over-the-top declarations about the way they felt about you only to discover they had a girlfriend or boyfriend all along? How about the ex who kept checking in with you over text while in bed with their spouse? Or the shady significant other who always seemed to disappear for days, only to return with excuses about their whereabouts?

You may have come across a narcissistic or sociopathic personality type. Narcissists and sociopaths are notorious for engaging in both emotional and physical infidelity.Not only are narcissists players and pick-up artists in the dating world, they are also serial cheaters in relationships.

In fact, a wealth of research suggests that narcissism is positively correlated with having extramarital affairs and more sexually permissive attitudes towards infidelity, even when there is satisfaction in the present relationship (Foster, Shrira, & Campbell, 2006;Hunyady, Josephs, & Jost, 2008; Mcnulty & Widman, 2014).

The difference between your garden-variety cheater and the narcissist is that the narcissist isnt searching for just cheap thrills; they are searching for power and control beyond what is fathomable to normal empathic beings. Due to their stunning lack of empathy, penchant for exploitation and thirst for validation and narcissistic supply (sources of admiration, praise, sex, and any other resources they desire), narcissists create harems or fan clubs of admirers, ex-lovers and potential mates which they can feed off of all while maintaining a long-term relationship with a primary partner. They have an insatiable need for validation and attention. When combined with their sense of sexual entitlement, this makes them dangerous predators who place their partners at high risk for emotional and physical repercussions.

Their ability to gaslight their victims into believing in them, their capacity to dupe multiple victims, to manipulate and manufacture fabrications long-term is what makes them such stellar performers. Frankly, the numerous ways they convincingly present a false mask and warp reality are astounding and can create massive cognitive dissonance in their victims. This duplicity allows them to dupe not only their partners but also society as a whole into believing that they are the charming, upright, moral and honest people they pretend to be.

Here are five signs you may be dating or involved in a relationship with a cheating narcissist.

Beware of the grandstanding narcissist who deals in contradictions and hypocrisy. Grandstanding is a habit of the covert narcissist someone who boldly declares how honest and trustworthy they are repeatedly, yet fails to follow through with their words time and time again.

When someone constantly talks about how much they believe in integrity and honesty, that can be a red flag in itself. Ask yourself: why would someone who is truly decent and honest have to reaffirm these qualities to those around him or her? Those with authentic integrity do not have to always talk about the fact that they possess this quality they live their integrity through their actions more than their words.

If someone appears too good to be true, chances are, they probably are. Narcissists are often wolves in sheeps clothing. They project a different image of themselves to the world which contradicts who they really are within. They often speak in absolutes, claiming that they would never lie to you or cheat on you. They overemphasize their trustworthiness because they know their character is hollow.

While people who are not narcissists can do this as well, narcissists who are serial cheaters will often volunteer information early on about how they were cheated on. This is to depict themselves as the victims of infidelity when they were frequently the perpetrator of it in their past relationships.

Watch out for anyone who appears to display the red flags of cheating all while claiming they themselves were the victims of cheating. This is projection and gaslighting to keep you off-balance and keep you doubting your own instincts about their character.

If youre in the early stages of exclusively dating a narcissist, you might notice that he or she tends to disappear often without a word or cancels plans last minute (or makes plans with you last minute). You might mistake this for mere flakiness, when in reality, it could be a sign that they are knee-deep in other dates or in hot pursuit of new victims.

Its common for narcissists to continue dating others evenif youve both agreed to be exclusive. Narcissists have a high degree of entitlement, so they feel entitled to the rush that new supply grants them as well as sex or any other resources offered by their other harem members.

“Another common trait of the chronic narcissist is his or her pattern of not following through on agreements and obligations. This can range from the relatively mild, such as flaking out on appointments and tasks, to the highly serious, such as abandoning major responsibilities and relationships (commitments). Being self-centered and conceited, the narcissist will generally meet his or her obligations only when they suit his self-interest. Chronic narcissists do not relate, they use. They talk a good talk, but often fail to back it up. ” – Preston Ni, 8 Common Narcissist Lies

Be wary of someone who constantly cancels on you or rarely responds with consistency. There is no such thing as reliability, punctuality or honesty with a narcissist they will place their multiple romantic prospects on rotation to suit their needs at whim and they will be indifferent to the pain or inconvenience they cause their partners when they suddenly pull out of plans on the day of or when they stand you up.

In long-term abusive relationships where stonewalling is common, cheating narcissists often use periods where theyre giving you the silent treatment to pursue their other targets. Thats why youll find that the narcissist asks you for a break or might even manufacture arguments out of thin air its simply an excuse to leave the relationship temporarily at bay while they explore their other options.

Narcissists and sociopaths use social media as a way to create love triangles among their targets. It gives them a sense of validation and power knowing that they have so many admirers who are willing to bend over backwards and give them the praise and attention they constantly need.

This suspicious behavior on social media can manifest in a variety of ways. Narcissists are known to be on dating apps even while committed and can also engage in obvious flirting both online and offline. Their shady behavior can range from their nefarious possession of dating apps to more innocuous online activity. You might notice that the narcissist posts strangely provocative or flirtatious comments on the photos of other attractive men or women.

Perhaps they refuse to put up a relationship status with you or they do, but they continue to openly hit on others or add suspicious new friends who seem to be far more than just friends. They may also follow a large volume of sexually explicit accounts. If someone youre dating exclusively (or even just flirting with) appears to already be in numerous relationships on social media all while claiming youre the only one, its time to reevaluate.

If they already have a relationship status listed with someone even while claiming they are no longer with them, it’s wise to notto take the narcissist at his or her word. Either verify with the other person that the relationship really is over like the narcissist claims or detach from the narcissist completely.

You might even be in a situation with a narcissist who has no social media accounts. This could be a way for them to protect themselves after all, if none of their other partners know that the narcissist is in a relationship, its far harder to be caught in this digital age.

This is quite an obvious sign, but its one that isnt often spoken about. If you see strange occurrences of victims that the narcissist has dated in the past calling them out publicly or going out of their way to warn you about them, take a step back. Its common that if a narcissist has a wide pool of victims, at least a couple of them will attempt to speak the truth about what they experienced.

The narcissist will claim these people who are speaking out about them are crazy liars or stalkers. In their smear campaigns, theyll bemoan how their past victims were obsessed with them or that they just couldnt let go. Its easy to depict past victims of narcissists as unhinged and the narcissist knows this. They will preemptively strike by telling lies about victims so that by the time these people reach out to warn you or tell their side of the story, youll already be more inclined to believe the narcissist.

The truth is that the person in question is warning you for a good reason they probably have experienced the infidelity themselves and want to prevent heartache for present and future victims. Dont be so quick to assume that every past lover who comes out of the woodwork simply has a vendetta. Survivors of narcissists are not obsessed they are often traumatized and looking for answers.

Narcissists and sociopaths are masters of pathological lying. They gain a sense of duping delight from being able to pull the wool over the eyes of their many romantic prospects. Sometimes, they lie to protect themselves and to prevent themselves from being caught cheating. They may lie about where they were the night before or tell elaborate tales about who the “friend” they were seen with really was.

However, other times, they may lie even when they have no reason to do so at all. For them, its about power and being able to control a persons perception gives them a thrill and sadistic sense of superiority and pleasure.

When it comes to infidelity, a narcissist or sociopath has no qualms lying to your face all while emphasizing how much they value honesty and transparency. They may have a primary girlfriend or boyfriend, even a spouse who they have (at least on the surface) committed to. Perhaps they even post romantic pictures with their significant partner and praise them on social media. However, they will not think twice about cheating on and gaslighting those same partners.

They also have no moral code that would prevent them from doing the unthinkable – no time limits or boundaries on when, where or how they’ll cheat or even who they’ll cheat with. They could be on a romantic vacation in Italy with you, all while swiping on Tinder and sending explicit videos to strangers. Or, if youre not their primary partner, they could be spending the weekends with their girlfriend all while taking you out on weeknights. You would never know, unless you began investigating.

As they do this, the risk of getting caught only adds to the thrill. They enjoy manipulating. They enjoy the sex, the resources, the endless supply of admiration coming their way. But most of all? They enjoy being able to get away with it.

If you notice these red flags, know that this person is unlikely to change. The way they have mistreated you was not personal they do this to all their victims and are loyal to no one, not even their primary partner.

It was not your fault that you were targeted by this predatory personality. However, what you do next with the knowledge you have is important. The earlier you detach from this toxic personality, the better chance you have of healing and of moving forward onto the loyal relationship you truly deserve.

Serial Cheaters: 3 Characteristics Of A Cheating Partner


Sociopaths and psychopaths

Psychopathy is the tendency to disregard the moral code and the rights of others, acting purely on one's own behalf. Experts disagree about whether or not the distinctions between psychopathy and sociopathy are significant enough that the terms can't be used interchangeably. In broad terms, psychopathy is considered a more severe form of sociopathy. All psychopaths are sociopaths, but not all sociopaths are psychopaths.

That said, the traits shared by psychopaths and sociopaths are the traits that make both types more likely to cheat: a disregard for social mores and the rights and feelings of others, and a failure to feel remorse or guilt.

Psychopathy has a strong correlation to infidelity1, with a very high likelihood that a psychopath or sociopath will engage with other sex partners outside the marital relationship. Psychopaths also tend to have a higher number of lifetime sex partners. They are better able to separate love from sexual activity, and they are more willing to engage in behaviors involved in an unfaithful relationship or lifestyle, like prolonged periods of lying2.



In contrast, narcissism is hallmarked by grandiosity and conceit. The narcissist believes they are better-looking, smarter, fitter, and more worthy than their spouse, which leads them to believe they are entitled to cheat3. And that they believe they are better-looking, smarter, fitter, and more worthy than their affair partner may lead them to believe they are entitled to use them exclusively for their own sexual pleasure. (Sexual narcissism itself can be considered one specific type of narcissism.)

Interestingly, though they may get up to the same unsavory social behaviors, sociopaths and narcissists are two very different fellows. That handsome narcissist across the coffee bar is likely to be somewhat neurotic, with a deep underlying lack of confidence, stemming from an insecure attachment to the primary caregiver in early childhood. Under their confident exterior, they may secretly suffer from excessive worry, guilt, and anxiety.

Meanwhile, the smooth-operating and deceitful sociopath two seats over is much more detached, resulting from an avoidant attachment to his primary caregiver, if they had one. People with an avoidant attachment style have trouble getting close to, trusting, and relying on others. They actually seek out relationships that are more likely to be distant and less emotionally demanding. Their early bonding experience likely involved a distracted or dismissive authoritarian parent who failed to satisfy their needs. As a result, they seek comfort from those who are less intimate and committed in their relationships. And an extramarital relationship perfectly avoids the threat of intimacy in a sexual relationship, which explains the link between attachment avoidance and infidelity.

Meanwhile, the narcissist may actually crave and long for the intimacy that was lacking in their early attachment to their parent, and they may very well be lacking in their current relationship with their partner.

Studies show that both the sociopath and the narcissist tend to have more lenient attitudes toward infidelity4 than does the typical Gallup responder. They tend to be more permissive about sex, have a greater desire to have casual sex, and are more willing to engage in sex without emotional commitment. They tend to be dominant in their relationship with their spouses, have a higher propensity for sexual excitation (referring to how often and to what degree one becomes sexually excited), be sensation seekers (referring to both exciting and possibly dangerous situations), and score higher on psychological measures of impulsivity, or the inability to control one’s actions.

The marital relationships resulting from the early bonding patterns of sociopaths and narcissists tend to include poor problem-solving patterns, a lack of coping skills, little consistency, low mutual respect, and poor communication skills. In addition, satisfaction of time spent together, satisfaction with physical appearance, and social prestige are all lower in marriages containing either sociopaths or narcissists.

Lonely hearts

The lonely heart is a much broader and perhaps more interesting category.

Among one study of 100,000 subjects, boredom was the reason given for infidelity by 71% of unfaithful men. Additionally, people married to partners who are emotionally unavailable or have difficulty enjoying intimacy may find that their emotional needs can be met in an extra-marital affair. Not surprisingly, the data show that couples who have fewer and or less intense positive sexual interactions are at higher risk, as are those who report low sexual satisfaction. And in this case, contextual factors, such as having friends or family members who cheat, having access to valuable alternative sex partners, and watching porn may increase the likelihood that a lonely spouse will make the decision to engage in extra-marital sex.

That isn't to say that all lonely or sexually unsatisfied people will cheat, though: Communication skills (the way in which partners share information, thoughts, and emotions by verbal and non-verbal exchange) is one area of emotional availability that impacts the likelihood of an unfaithful liaison, and it correlates with a sense of belonging within the partnership structure.


It's easy to look at this list of traits and conclude that your cheating ex was an evil psychopath or that they cheated because you weren't having enough sex with them. Both of these things could be true, but it's important not to jump to conclusions. There are many reasons why people cheat, and it's not always because they're a terrible person at core.

Even when we use terms like "psychopath" and "narcissist" to describe people, it's important to remember that these characteristics actually exist on a spectrum—and the average person will have at least some level of narcissistic traits even without having a narcissistic personality disorder.

All that said, there are definitely some trends when it comes to the characteristics of a cheating partner that you can look out for before entering your next relationship.

what to do if your husband cheats or cheats

Here's what you will learn from this article:

  • What every woman should know about cheating
  • How to survive cheating on her husband or boyfriend
  • and you have to leave him
  • The truth about infidelity and adultery in a relationship
  • And if you decide to stay together: how can you stop him from cheating on you again
  • …and much more

What does it mean for your relationship if he cheated on you?

This is one of the most common questions. I receive thousands of emails about this.

  • My husband cheated on me, what should I do?
  • He cheated on me, should I leave him?
  • Is there any way I can prevent him from cheating again?
  • And so on...

Don't worry : I'm here to help you.

But let me tell you something first.

His betrayal may seem like the biggest problem in the world right now. I understand that it hurts a lot. Emotions run through your entire body and you would like to chop off certain parts of his body.

But my guess is that if you found this article of mine, you are either confused about what to do now with all this, or at least want to consider the possibility that your relationship might recover.

I'm not asking you to forgive him immediately (or ever) , but I want you and me to consider options for how you should proceed.

Here are 7 things you need to know if he cheated on you: nothing to do with you personally

Even if you have an ideal relationship, a man can still cheat. Either this happens at a moment of weakness or alcohol intoxication, or because he does not receive something from you. Either he understands that society does not condemn treason too much or all his friends have a mistress. We will talk about the possible reasons for his betrayal below.

But let's start by telling yourself firmly - it's not my fault . At this stage, stop blaming yourself, we need your sober head and clarity of thought.

I already wrote an article about why men cheat. Therefore, I will not repeat myself, listing all the reasons here. But you can read them here.

And we'll start with what you need to deal with at this moment.

No. 2: Don't Make Worrying Your Main Hobby

You might think it was you who cheated by saying things like this to yourself:

  • I haven't been paying attention to it lately.
  • I have put on a few extra pounds.
  • I don't give him what he wants in bed.

An insecure woman will seek in herself the reasons for which he cheated on her. And if she tries to find them, she will find them and blame herself for everything. As long as you don't have to.

The reality is that men tend to cheat even when your relationship is perfect.

You can read more about this below.

In the meantime, I would like to ask you to stop for a moment if you find yourself having these thoughts.

  1. Take a few deep breaths.
  2. Slow down your thoughts.
  3. Let the emotions in your body subside.
  4. Calm down.

This is very important because you can only deal with this problem if you think clearly. You should give up negative emotions and try to keep a clear mind.

Otherwise, you will only make life harder for yourself during this difficult time in your relationship. Try to control your emotions and don't let them control you too much.

This makes the following steps much easier.

No. 3: Don't listen to advice from those who haven't had a similar experience

I have good news and bad news for you.

  • The good news of is that all your relatives and friends will certainly take your side and will be ready to support you if your husband or boyfriend has cheated on you. You are a victim of circumstances, so you will drown in the attention of friends and relatives.
  • The bad news for is that they will not only support you, they will give you the only but very important tip in their opinion. What is this advice?

They will tell you to break up with him without even thinking about it for 2 seconds.

They will judge him severely, they will tell you that you must not accept it. The reason they do this is because they want you to feel good. And they also want to show they care about you.

But they don't even know close to what happened between you and your man, in fact, in order to cut from the shoulder.

For example, my daughter started dating her current husband at the age of 17, he was and remains her first and only man. She had no experience of treason and was very categorical about this article - treason cannot be forgiven.

But she can't even imagine that lump of pain, resentment and misunderstanding when emotional and physical connection is broken and all your dreams and hopes collapse.

Is it necessary to listen to such advisers in your situation?

I think not.

Let's move on. According to statistics, 59% of men and 41% of women cheat. This is one of those who did not lie in the survey.

Perhaps those who are now giving you advice have been betrayed or cheated on them.

And in a situation like this, do you think these advisers would actually follow their own advice? Also doubtful.

I just told you that men can have a perfect relationship with a woman and still cheat. And scientific evidence confirms the fact that most men often return to their partners after a fleeting romance on the side.

And what they really needed from another woman was to understand how wonderful it is that he has you .

He didn't stay with her, did he come back to you? Or didn't come back?

You might think that I am defending male infidelity, being a man myself.

No, far from it. I think cheating is horrible and not human at all.

But what happened to you is again not the case when the ground under his feet should start to blaze, open up and he should fall into hell, as your friends and family suggest.

What to do | 10 Simple Tips

Therefore, instead of listening to the advice of your friends and family, I suggest you do the following:

No. 4: Seek advice from experienced people it is important that you talk to people who have had a positive experience with this problem.

It doesn't really matter who this person is - your neighbor in the house, your colleague at work or a family member. What is important is that he or she went through this experience and somehow solved this problem in his life.

Don't listen to people who yell at you to leave him immediately. The loudest voices, they are usually not always the smartest!

So, find at least:

  • One person who did not continue the relationship after the betrayal (and can talk about it without emotion).
  • One person who overcame the fact of his partner's infidelity and managed to improve relations.

This is it. people who can really help you.

They went through what you want to achieve, at least if you want to rebuild the relationship.

These experienced people can also support you much better because they know from their own experience what you are going through. They understand your feelings and the pressure you get from the outside world.

They can also save you from the most common mistakes before you finish what you started.


From now on, I'm going to advise you to keep your relationship. I'm assuming that your boyfriend or husband is a good-hearted person who made a really stupid mistake. I'm going to suggest that he may change.

But there are some exceptions if your man is:

  • Serial cheater
  • Narcissist
  • Gambler
  • You are in a toxic relationship

Click on the links above to see if you are in one of these exceptional situations. If you didn't recognize any of these situations and believe that your man can change, keep reading.

Unfortunately, articles on narcissists, gamblers and toxic relationships are currently in the works, I will try to prepare them as soon as possible, but for now I can only apologize for the lack of necessary material.

No. 5: Relationships can be restored

It's terrible, but according to statistics, almost half of the people cheat on their "halves". Both men and women. It was very difficult for me with my romantic worldview to accept this vile fact, but in the end I reconciled myself, saying to myself: "This is how this world works."

The reality is that in most cases, couples break up immediately after infidelity.

The truth is that only a small number of men and women are willing to fight for a relationship after infidelity. If you both want to keep your relationship going, it's possible that you can.

Because it's possible to have a successful relationship after cheating, even if the whole world is against you. Given that you will stick to what I have already mentioned and what I will say a little later.

Don't give in to emotions and the temptation to leave yet. You can still find a way to get through this.

But if you let your emotions guide you, the task becomes very difficult. And there will always be people around you who will constantly excite your feelings and set you on a negative wave.

No. 6: You will have to make an effort to forgive him on him more guilt for treason. And this is correct to some extent. After all, he changed it and he hurt you.

But if you never forget to mention his wrongdoing and keep pushing him to regain your trust while putting a lot of pressure on him, you won't be able to mend your relationship.

The reasons why your behavior will work against you are simple:
  • He probably already regrets it . He did something terrible. And you have every right to tell him about it. But if you continue to bring this topic up on a daily basis, it will not help your relationship recover. It won't make him regret it even more. He already regrets what he did.
  • He knows that his betrayal has nothing to do with you . But if you keep telling him this on a regular basis, he will be very uncomfortable. And he will go where he will be happy.
  • If, thanks to your reproaches, he tries on the role of a permanent cheater, then he will cheat on you again. That's because he'll take over the role you gave him.

People tend to behave according to your expectations of them. If you act like he's cheating on you, he's more likely to actually do it.

You may have to control your emotions for six months or more. And you both work hard to keep the relationship going.

But this is often better than parting. We all make mistakes, sometimes fatally. Wisdom is to distinguish a mistake from a character trait and give it a chance.

In many ways, something always goes wrong. I don't know of any perfect relationship.

Let's say you travel 30 years ahead in a time machine to see what happens if you forgive him. And I saw that you grew old together, and he turned out to be the man of your dreams. Now really look at how you deal with this situation. Was it worth it to forgive him error he made?

I deliberately highlighted the word “ error ”. Don't tell him, "I forgive you," unless he absolutely needs your forgiveness.

But if he is ready to stay with you and promises that his betrayal will not happen again, he still has to take some steps to earn your trust again.

No. 7: Let him “put all the cards on the table”

If you keep treating him like a suspect, he'll probably screw up again. I already mentioned this above.

That's why you and I take exactly the opposite approach.

You give him the opportunity to show that he won't cheat on you again. If so, then he has nothing to hide from you, except, of course, the surprises he wants to make for you.

He can show his intentions like this:

  • Give you access to your phone and social media
  • Tell you the truth about where he is going and with whom

Being completely open on both sides can help you restore trust in your relationship.

This does not mean that you have to start and end the day with an interrogation, like in the Gestapo. This means that you agree to be completely transparent about your activities as a couple. An agreement where you can ask what you want to know and he will answer honestly. But the same goes for you.

So you will see for yourself in time that everything is in order. And that he would never do it again.

I know it's incredibly hard for you. And that others will pity and even condemn you as soon as you decide to forgive him.

But if so, you will save your relationship or marriage after infidelity. This is strong . It's a brave decision to keep working on your relationship despite the betrayal.

This is interesting: He still loves his ex: 7 signs that YES

No. 8: What you can do now

If you are thinking about forgiving him, I recommend that you read tips on how to forgive a cheater.

Forgiveness is never an easy decision. But whatever you decide to do, trust your heart, not what your friends and family think.

Well, no matter how sad the fact that I will tell you in the end - most of the men who cheat do it on an ongoing basis . It would be foolish not to try to give your man a second chance if he did it for the first time and you are strongly emotionally, financially and physically attached to him. But if the betrayal repeats, then this is a sign that either it is time to leave, or to continue to endure his betrayals.

And I know quite a lot of couples in which the man goes to the left, but the woman does not lag behind him either. I am against such relations, but I cannot impose the principles of their life or existence on anyone.

A bit about personal

If you look for an example of a respectable family in the acting environment, then this, of course, is Steklova Agrippina Vladimirovna. The personal life of the actress will not give a single reason to become sensational or post on the Internet. Steklova has been married to actor Vladimir Bolshov for many years. They met at the Satyricon Theater, where they work together to this day.

Agrippina and Vladimir just talked for a long time, and their romance began only a year after they met. Each of them had a child from a past relationship. Agrippina has a son, Danil, and Vladimir has a daughter, Maria. Step-siblings never clashed with each other. With a difference in age of only one year, they became real relatives.

However, Agrippina Steklova does not hide her personal life, her first husband — it all started as a student. In her second year at university, she met a young man named Andrei. They began an affair and after a couple of months Agrippina found out about her pregnancy. She decided that she would give birth. Family relations with Andrey did not work out for them. Soon the couple broke up, but still maintains warm, friendly relations. The child's surname is mother's.

Now the children have grown up. Danil graduated from the acting department at the Maly Art Theater, and Maria successfully completed courses at GITIS. It can be said with confidence that the children continued the good tradition of succession of professions: after all, mom, dad, grandmother, grandfather, great-grandmother and great-grandfather are also artists. What kind of actors will be obtained from the heirs of the family profession, only time will tell.

Steklova is fifteen years younger than her chosen one. But this difference in age does not in the least prevent the husband and wife from living in perfect harmony. Joint work in theater and cinema only strengthens the already strong bond between the actors. Many people know that Vladimir Bolshov has just an extraordinary sense of humor. It was this trait that bribed the young actress in him.

Vladimir is an excellent cook, he can take on some of his wife's duties: for example, to wash the dishes. This separation of powers helps to keep the love between the actors.

Steklova admits that she was afraid for the relationship between stepchildren and parents. But her fears were unfounded. The children got along, Vladimir took Danil as his own child. And Maria quickly imbued Agrippina with real family feelings.

Vladimir Steklov still plays an important role in his daughter's life. Their marriage to Lyudmila Moschenskaya broke up when Agrippina was only seventeen years old. Despite the difficulties in the relationship between parents, Steklova Jr. did not take sides and communicates with mom and dad the same way.
