Dating an emotional psychopath means they will try to stop you from leaving your house to meet your family and friends by manipulating you in the name of romance. If you have plans to meet your friends for dinner, they will suddenly whip up a candlelight dinner for the two of you. It might seem romantic and thoughtful on the surface, but their intentions are nothing short of sinister.
8. They will embarrass you in public.
They will never stop cracking jokes at you in public. Teasing is perfectly okay but these jokes are something you are not comfortable with, and you always have a feeling that they are insulting you and ridiculing you in the name of humor. It might seem funny on the surface, but deep inside only you know what they are doing.
They might discuss things you don’t want others to know or things you feel embarrassed about. This doesn’t mean they are genuinely joking around or romancing you in any way; it shows they have no respect for you or your privacy. It’s their twisted and disgusting way of humiliating you in public.
9. They have a lack of remorse.
Despite all the horrible and disturbing things they do, you will never see a hint of remorse in them; emotional psychopaths are just not built that way. Even when they know very well how they are hurting others, they will never apologize, rather they will somehow pin the blame on you. As long as you are dating an emotional psychopath, don’t expect to hear the words “I’m sorry.”
Their lack of remorse makes it impossible after a point to stay strong, and you will see yourself crumbling under all the emotional stress and manipulation they subject you to.
10. They break you completely.
They wreak havoc in your mind, and with every passing day you will find yourself extremely dependent on them, yet they are never there. You will see that you have lost your self-worth and self-confidence in the process and you feel like a shell of the person you once were. An emotional psychopath sucks you dry and then throws you out like garbage.
You don’t have anyone beside you. You want to be loved back; you want their love but they are not there for you. They blame everything on you. You need to understand it’s not your fault and you don’t deserve all this. Stop believing that there is something wrong with you, and then only will you able to stop them from pulling you down.
You are a beautiful soul and you deserve a better partner. You do not deserve to get hurt every second of every day of your life, just because you chose to love someone. Emotional psychopaths are beyond help. If you find most or all of these attributes in your partner, then you are definitely dating an emotional psychopath, and in that case, you should run and never look back.
