If your new romantic interest exhibits all or most of the following behaviors, be careful. Something doesn’t seem quite right, but you can’t put your finger on what it is.
They lie when they’d make out better telling the truth.
If you get a chill down your spine when they look at you, pay attention.
They want to move in together or get married quickly.
They want you to feel sorry for their abusive childhood, psychotic ex, incurable disease or financial setbacks.
One minute they love you; the next minute they hate you. For more information, read the book by Donna Andersen: Red Flags of Lovefraud – 10 signs you’re dating a sociopath.
Sociopaths (also known as psychopaths) live among us. Antisocial personality disorders do not discriminate--young, old, male, female--anyone can become a sociopath.
It may seem difficult to identify a sociopath, especially if he or she happens to be your partner.
Nevertheless, there are several steps that you can take to identify the early warning signs of antisocial personality disorder. I am in a state of disbelief after reading several websites featuring Jeffrey Dahmer, many of which attempt to explain his murderous lifestyle to be the result of an unhappy childhood.
I've dated a sociopath and it's humiliating and embarrassing. Many children suffer childhood illnesses and traumas and come from broken homes, but almost none of these kill and mutilate others for personal pleasure.
They know when and how to choose their victims; at their most vulnerable moments. Jeffrey Dahmer did what he did because he was a sociopath, more prolific in murder and more damaging to society than most, but a sociopath all the same.
As soon as I realized he was a sociopath (after researching many of the traits online) and actually called him a sociopath to his face, that was the last I heard of him. They don't like it when you find out what they are. I dated a man who had parts of these characteristics, the lying, and the grandiose sense of self. It is time for Americans to take a hard look at what is happening around them.
