Dating female sociopaths
The real reason she will date him is hidden to her. Despite all of the difficulties, her sociopathic husband was someone "..whom I shared a million happy, fun times" (2009).She'll date him because he's identified her as someone who will meet a need (. The sociopath carefully crafts his relationships so that he can get his partners to do his bidding, whatever that may be.I am a 60 year old male who was living with a 50 year old female for three years. I wrote a letter to my Ex-girlfriend a few days after I left.I had said to myself enough is enough after one of her quick insulting outbursts.On the surface, dating a sociopath doesn't seem like dating a sociopath at all.The sociopath can't love, but she can fake it incredibly well.
A relationship with a sociopath is often one-sided (the sociopath has a selfish motive whereas her partner is emotionally invested in an actually relationship).The self-esteem of the sociopath is poorly regulated because the sociopath acts to protect and sustain an inflated, but ultimately fragile and unstable sense of self.Emotion regulation is compromised by difficulties in experiencing, processing and moderating certain feelings, most especially anger, shame and envy.Editor’s note: A Lovefraud reader who calls himself “Fly” posted the following comment on August 7, 2015.It is a great description of dysfunctional behavior in a woman, so it is reproduced here in order to help others.
