10 Big Telltale signs you’re dating a Psychopath so you Can bail out now
If you were dating or married to a psychopath how you would know it? In the worst case scenario you will realize the fact only when it could be too late by which time you will have experienced every possible sense of behavior ranging from strange to downright bizarre. Psychopaths knows no boundaries, they care crap for the world and are immersed only in a pseudo sense of the universe revolving around them. Psychopaths are selfish to the extreme and I’m sure you may be knowing that already. But!!! if you still haven’t recognized the telltale signs, then here are 10 signs you’re dating a psychopath. This list is not just the ramblings of a writer but compiled with research provided by Canadian psychologist, Robert D Hare.
1 Glib and Superficial Charm
Psychopaths are usually smooth speakers with the gift of the gab but as convincing as they may sound, they are seriously shallow and don’t mean a thing as such they would never stick to a promise they don’t intend keeping. As for charm, they are gifted with it but their charming ways extend only to turning it on when they expect favors or certain things in return. They aren’t genuinely charming for the sake of it.
2 Pretentious Sense of Self Worth
A majority of psychopaths have an inflated ego of themselves. However while self confidence is good, psychopaths flaunt it in a sarcastic manner considering others beneath themselves as morons or simpletons. They may not voice it directly but it exudes out of their personality.
3 Easily bored with need for Stimulation
Psychopaths are never boring because they are always bored themselves, hence the need for stimulation. Psychopaths love taking risks, remember Harlequin?? From Suicide Squad? The negative side of dating a psychopath is the risks you may have to endure but on the flip side, life is never dull and one big carousel ride.
4 Pathological Lying
Psychopaths would lie and not fail a lie detector test; they are extremely good at it and are pathological liars. Your psychopath may tell you she has a doctorate that has been travelling the world with an NGO; she might just end up being a college or school dropout brought up in an orphanage herself.
Psychos are manipulative and treacherous in a cold blooded manner. They will think nothing of using you and making you believe that you’re the love of their life. But!! They will easily cheat on you on the side. A psycho may also end up living off you without you knowing it all because you’re smitten by pretentious charms. One of the biggest signs you’re dating a psychopath.
6 A Total Lack of Guilt
Psychopaths are not in the least guilty of themselves, even if they say or do things to hurt your feelings, they fail to understand why you may be getting emotional or exploding about it. Psychopaths are so full of themselves that they are unable to realize if they have done anything wrong. Even if they cheat on you, it’s as if they have a right to do it or it’s your fault.
7 Lack of Empathy and feelings
Normal people have a sense of empathy and relate to the feelings of other people. Should your neighbors be faced with a calamity, you may feel and express solidarity with them. Psychopaths on the other hand may just pass by without a glance oblivious of another’s problems. Such people cannot put themselves in another’s shoes as they couldn’t care less. If the person you’re dating shows such signs of behavior, that’s a red flag for you.
8 Parasitic Lifestyle
This is one of the worst signs of a psychopath. His manipulative charms make him so irresistible that women may just cozy upto him and give him whatever they own in return. The psychopath is that one who latches on to the rich girl’s sucks them dry and gets paid off in the divorce too. Be careful of this one as being emotionally drained is one thing but getting financially conned is a big thins too.
9 Poor Behavior Controls
A psychopath will never fail to lose her temper, throw tantrums and act like a shrew when you least expect it. A woman who drinks straight from the bottle then starts hurtling things at you, laughing one moment and crying the next is a red flag to avoid instantly. Sometimes such extreme behavior could end in violence too.
10 Promiscuous Behavior
Among worst signs you’re dating a psychopath, promiscuity is one behavioral trait they excel at. A psychopath won’t care two hoots to cheat on you when you least expect it. If you think that hot babe liked you because she was chatting you up at a social do, then you most probably may find her doing the same thing with someone else in the very next moment. And!! If you thought you are the chosen one because she spent the night with you, well be warned, you most probably are just a number in her calendar.
