Signs you dating psychopath

Anyone whose score is greater than 26 is diagnosed as psychopathic.

If you had a tough childhood, he will say something like, "We both had it rough. Whatever he says about the other people in his life is pretty much exactly what he'll be saying about you at some point, so listen carefully. Did he miraculously beat cancer but it could come back at any minute? Once he has you hooked, you'll find yourself begging for sex because he suddenly won't want it anymore. Like you might be cooking dinner and suddenly he blurts, "I'm crazy you know." Or "I'm cheating on you." He will then either deny he said it or play it off as a joke. Once psychopaths have you hooked after the "love bombing" and "idealization" phase, they then begin to devalue you.

Pay careful attention to what a psychopath says on the first few dates about his exes and other people in his life. Does he break his foot on your second date and has to cancel? ) Did he lose his first wife in a car accident that left him with brain trauma (yet he talks fine and seems fine)? Everyone wants great sex, but those who have been with a psychopath often say it's the best thing they've ever experienced. A form of keeping you off balance -- but also possibly an unconscious slip of the mask of his persona. The first step in that is usually to give you the silent treatment over something.

If you're dealing with a sociopath, stop playing his games.
