How Do I Know I’m Dating a Sociopath?

If we’re Googling for answers.
If we feel confused. If we’ve started wondering what’s wrong.
Chances are: we’re dating a sociopath.

romanticdinnerThere are very specific traits every sociopath shares. Some of these traits are present in normal people – the difference – a sociopath embodies all of these traits in a play-and-repeat pattern.

So how do we know if we’re
dating a sociopath?

The thing is: if we feel the need to Google to find our whats up with someone we think we’re in love with or might be falling in love with or having sex with – there is something wrong – deeply wrong – no matter what it is – this is a reason to end it. Really – it is. But – most of us won’t want to yet – we usually want to know more – that’s just human. – That’s how we got to the moon.

A sociopath or psychopath is technically known as an antisocial psychopath.
Why are Sociopaths Called Antisocial?

What do Sociopaths do in Relationships?

They want to see us a lot, or text and message a lot.
Seem interesting, smart even – and like they know what they’re talking about.
Seem to have things going on: good job, a project, maybe a lotta money.
They make promises.
They offer us something we want: a job, love, a new life – from day one, or three.
We probably start a sexual thing.

And then this happens:

They have sudden and irrational anger.
They break promises.
They say something really strange like, “You only think you love me.” Or, “I’m not average.”
They get weird about sex.
They tell us we can’t have or be part of that love or business thing.
Mood changes up to down, nice to mean, or active to knocked out.

And somewhere in our mind: We feel like they’re lying.

And then it’s worse:

They don’t talk to us, they ignore our texts, or get mad at us for contacting them.
They disappear for days.
They tell us every thing is our fault.
They tell us we’re idiots or call us fat.
We find out they’re seeing other people.
They might get physical – or try to get us to hit them.

And now: We know they’re lying. We know they’re deceiving us. Something is really wrong.

And then: They act like nothing happened and like we’re still chill.

Also: We’re afraid of them. We think maybe they’re “mentally unstable.” We know there’s something very wrong going on, but we can’t put our finger on it. Things are really weird.

How do we Get Away From a Sociopath?

Sociopaths Think Differently – They Have a Different Brian

Voila, the life of hell with a sociopath.

Sociopaths are very different than we are. They actually have a different brain – they process human relations completely differently than we do. They look at other people as objects. Utility devices to get things from, or use to get their kicks from – in a really bad way.

Sociopaths don’t ever change. They cannot. And they wouldn’t want to if they could, they like being sociopaths. They do know what they are. Sometimes they’ll tell us they’re a sociopath – that intimate, vulnerable comment makes us trust them more – so they can take more, longer.

Things can only go from bad to worse to much, much worse. They continue to be harsh, then nice. They continue to call us names and sometimes become violent. – Sometimes very violent. They take us through 5 stages of true love scam. Always.

Connectors between segments in their brains are missing so that they can’t process emotions as we do. Sociopaths and Psychopaths don’t feel emotions. They don’t process the meanings of words the way we do. They do lie. They do try to convince us they’re normal. This makes them dangerous.

Here’s a very detailed You Tube video with Dr. Hare, a leader
in studying antisocial psychopaths.

There is no end to the damage they can bring into our lives.
