Are you dating a psychopath?

 

There is no reason to judge others, either harshly or kindly. What is more important is creating your own standards and then choosing to be with people who fall into line with them.

 

Love is often based on a deep, core belief that is fulfilled by the union presenting itself.

 

However, sometimes, you might be attracted to someone, but have this uneasy ‘feeling’ that it all might be too good to be true? Or do you feel that everything seems ok, but there is something you can’t put your finger on.

 

If you are concerned that the person you are dating may not be all they seem, they might be a psychopath. The below traits are some dating red flags to look out for. The list was created in the 1970’s by Canadian researcher Robert Hare. We list the dating-related traits here.

  • Superficial charm
  • Grandiose sense of self-worth
  • Failure to accept responsibility for one’s own actions
  • Many short-term marital relationships
  • Pathological lying
  • Lack of empathy

 

Some of the above are difficult to see, but some are easy to spot.

 

Go here for the full list, and always consult a professional if you feel you need emotional assistance in your relationship.

 

Most important of all, work out what your own limits are and make sure you stick to them. Don’t let anyone talk you out of your own standards.
