True Love Scam – Married to a Con Man

I married a con man so, maybe you can skip it.

A long-time friend introduced me to his new friend.
A man who very quickly became my husband and then my nightmare.

True love scam is carried out by a con man –  A con man is a sociopath.
(Sometimes people call them Narcissists.) 

We think it’s love.
It takes as long as it takes to see this is nothing we’ve seen before.
We can recover, we can heal.
Our great goodness is our saving grace.

Thank you for your courage, commitment and hard work, very well done and critically important to prevent future scams, helping prevent more trauma and tragedy. Hard to say, but you are lucky you made it out alive. The sociopath’s ruse is deception upon deception. Since people are objects they are disposable to the sociopath. Not all allow their prey to live to tell the tale. Your work may save lives … More. ~ Dr. Deborah Ettel, Ph.D. Psychology

Thank you for your beautiful article, “The Sociopath’s Scam – It Isn’t Personal.” I just read it in Shahida Arabi’s book, Becoming the Narcissist’s Nightmare and found it truly uplifting and transformational. Thanks! ~ B.G. 

I really, REALLY, appreciated your piece in Becoming The Narcissist’s Nightmare. Thank you ~ J.K.

3 Reasons Narcissistic Sociopaths Tell Stories

 What Am I Supposed to Do With All This Junk?

Thank you for this article! This is exactly where I am at right now. I have all his junk in the back of my car not knowing what to do with it. As much as burning it and dancing around the flames sounds I think donating it sounds like a nice plan too. I guess that’s why we make good targets we are too nice and always thinking of others even after we’ve been hurt. But without kindness in this world there really would be no hope. Thank you for your articles,  Jennifer!” ~ Anon

“Wow!  You certainly have a profound understanding of even the minutest details of the sociopathic intellect.  This observation you wrote about, here, is spot on. (What Am I Supposed to Do With All This Junk?) Yet, so many miss this.  I’m looking at clothing, a guitar (amazing he left that because he used to cherish it), books, an old computer, photographs of him when he was younger, photos of his children…the mind boggles.  Walking robots, they are.  Thanks for the incredibly insightful article!  Keep up the great work!” ~ H.G.

Sociopaths are heartless, pretending, parasites who cannot love.

Sociopaths lie as easily and automatically as we breathe. Also with the same necessity. Sociopaths lie for survival. Lying is their income, their persona – their entire existence – their normal. Their brain is different from a measurable biological standpoint. There are male sociopaths and female sociopaths. Either way, they know they’re monsters. They enjoy it. They love who they are; they do not love anyone or anything else – not even us.

Everything is a lie, an untruth, a misdirect.

 I just want to say… It’s been a slow healing process for me and every now and then I’ll just need to read something or listen to something online that supports ME and reminds me that the sociopath was always the problem and not me. I just read your article from July 2015 “Sociopaths Hate Us“. I like your take on the sociopathic perspective and how we should view ourselves as well as the sociopath in comparison. It’s much more empowering than a lot of the articles about sociopathic abuse I’ve found online. Usually I’m left not feeling much better by the end of article than when I first started reading. Thank you for helping me feel empowered and fulfilled. ~ J.H.
