You would never want to be in a relationship with a genuine psychopath. But there are a few things that you need to learn about what it really means to be dating one. First, it’s important that you need to rid yourself of any ignorant preconceived notions that you might have about a genuine psychopath. Initially, you might assume that a psychopath is the kind of villain that you would see in the movies; the serial killer who is wielding some kind of chainsaw at helpless victims all around. You have to know that psychopaths aren’t always going to be so graphic and obvious. In fact, real-life psychopaths can fly under the radar. You might not realize that you are in the presence of a real psychopath; heck, you might even be in a relationship with a psychopath without even knowing it.
Don’t be surprised to think that a psychopath is someone who can be very charming and alluring. It’s perfectly plausible for ANYONE to fall in love with a psychopath. They can be some of the most interesting people you’re ever going to meet. And that’s why you need to make yourself aware of the signs of a psychopath so that you can spot one out when you see him. You don’t want to be deep in love with a psychopath before you fully understand the situation that you’re in. It’s always best that you are able to spot the psychopath out early on. Here are a few signs that you’re actually dating a psychopath as confessed by a real psychopath.
1. Being with him is going to be the best thing ever.
At first, everything is going to seem so great and amazing. And that’s the thing about being with psychopaths. They are so good at hiding their psychopathic tendencies at the start. That is their way of being able to gain your trust. And you aren’t always going to be able to spot it early, but you have to try your best to keep yourself guarded.
2. He isn’t going to want to fight with you.
He will not want to upset you in any capacity. He will not want to make you feel like he is antagonizing you. And so, instead of having mature disagreements and fights with you, he just agrees with you. He just adjusts to you all of the time. Or he just walks away whenever he knows that you’re about to have an argument.
3. He will adjust himself to be a mirror image of you.
He is going to take on a lot of your traits and characteristics. He is going to adopt a lot of your habits. He is going to slowly take on a lot of your personality because he will want you to trust him. He thinks that in order for you to believe in him, he needs to be exactly like you.
4. He has a history of toxic and bizarre breakups.
If your boyfriend has a history of terrible breakups and toxic relationships, then you really need to be wary of him. A lot of times, if a dude has had a string of just really bad relationships, chances are that he is the actual problem there. He is the common denominator and you really need to take extra precautions if you’re going to be with him.
5. He doesn’t open up to you a lot.
He remains a mystery towards you. He doesn’t really want to tell you a lot about him because there are a few things about himself that he doesn’t want you to know about. He doesn’t want to open up to you because he knows that you would leave him if you found out a few things about him. And you should really be scared.
6. You think that you can help change him.
You KNOW that he’s damaged and you think that you can change him. But here’s the thing: with psychopaths like him, change has to come from within. You can’t really COMPEL him to get rid of his psychotic tendencies.
7. He lies to you a lot.
He isn’t a guy who is worthy of your trust. He keeps on lying to you. Whether they be white lies or not, he just can’t present himself as a guy you can really trust and rely on. He never really tells you the truth because he doesn’t think that you’re deserving of it; or he’s just trying to watch out for himself.
8. He excessively sensationalizes your love affair.
He makes your relationship seem like it’s more than it actually is. He wants to give you the illusion that everything is all fine and dandy; but the truth is that your relationship is toxic and dysfunctional. He wants to make you believe that there is no reason for you to end things; but the truth is that you have every reason to end it all.
