WHAT MAKES PSYCHOPATHS SUCH SKILLFUL AND SAVVY SEDUCERS?
How do such cold and calculating predators make themselves seem alluring and desirable?
FINALLY, HERE THEY ARE…
A few days ago I read a memoir so important, so effective, and so deeply moving that I feel compelled to tell you about it:
Those are the words victims use to describe the seemingly magical connection they felt in the beginning of a relationship with a psychopath. I didn’t even believe in the concept of soul mates, so I was doubly surprised and amazed when I thought it had happened to me. Most victims report feeling like they finally met their true love, and they describe the connection as powerful and intense. This nearly universal experience marks the beginning of psychopathic abuse on a personal, one-on-one level. (more…)
What is the mask of a psychopath?
“What the psychopath does is they weave a picture of a person that’s really a dream. It’s a spirit. It’s not real. And you feel like you’ve discovered a soul mate. A deep intimacy. And you’re experiencing one of those rare moments that makes life worth living. And before you know it, you’re involved in a deep personal bond…with a psychopath. Once you’re in that bond — and we call it the psychopathic bond — you don’t want to break it.”
