Here’s a fun fact – according to clinical psychologist Dr Martha Stout, 1 in 25 people are sociopaths. Which means there is a possibility that you may be dating one, or there is a chance you’ve come in contact with one in the past.
Note, not every sociopath is psycho criminal, but they are definitely no fun to have around. Our advice? Take a look at this list of signs that your significant other is a sociopath.
1. They tend to lie, quite a bit.
Pathological liars, is what they are. When they get caught in one of their many lies, they will blame someone else, change the subject, become very angry, or point out your flaws. Just know, they’ll never admit to their lies.
2. Lack of connection to their past.
This will not be noticeable from the beginning, but after some time you will realise “hey, I don’t know anyone from their past. Hmmmmm.”
3. They are super charming.
When you meet them, their words and attentive stare will instantly attract you. However, it is only superficial.
4. They’re oozing with sexual charisma.
Sociopaths have more testosterone than others. They attract you to them like a magnet, and they are also much better in bed.
5. They have an oversized ego.
When you meet them, they will probably inform you of their accomplishments, winning attributes, and any other reason they are so very amazing.
6. There is never any remorse or guilt.
They don’t care. They hurt you? Oh well, not their problem.
7. They come on very strongly.
They are slightly overbearing and need you to be aware of their intense desire to be around you.
8. They lack maturity.
They’re very immature and childish.
9. They socially isolate you.
They want you all to themselves, and try to cut you off from the rest of the world. This will make it a lot harder for you to leave.
10. They always have a lot in common with you.
They seem to be your soul mate immediately. They somehow have everything in common with you.
11. They always blame others.
They never take responsibility for their actions. It is always somebody else’s fault.
12. They’re kind of obsessed with you.
They are slightly overbearing and need you all to themselves.
13. Oh, the dramatics.
They are usually the life of the party because of their dramatic displays. Every story is a theatrical monologue.
14. They always play the victim.
Even when they tell you stuff about their past, all of their stories are skewed to make you think “awwww, poor kid.”
15. They like to move a little too fast.
Sociopaths like to move a little quickly. They trust you from the beginning and try to start a relationship immediately.
