Why relationships with sociopaths are so addictive

Red recycleTime and time again, when I do personal consultations, people tell me how they struggle to break away from a relationship with a sociopath.

You know the involvement is bad for you. But even when you’re not forced to interact with the sociopath — you’re not married, don’t have kids with the person and don’t work together — you can’t cut the cord.

Why? Because relationships with sociopaths are highly addictive.

There are psychological and biological reasons for this, which I’ll explain.

Psychological bond

Any time two human beings enter into a relationship, a psychological love bond forms.

Never send money to Nigerians or others you meet online

Lovefraud received the following email from a reader

Just want to know if I am right on this. I am communicating with 4 guys on the Internet and all have asked for money. They have all sent me pictures of them and the kids, to prove they are “real.” Also have cell phone numbers.

They are all in Nigeria “working” and seem to have one problem or another.

One has finished his job and has been paid, but cannot cash the check. He wants me to send him money to come home on; I have refused.

Kindhearted people too often are preyed upon by Narcissists 

I have known many Narcissists in my lifetime. I had not yet been schooled on the psychology of narcissism though, but looking back now, obviously my education had begun, I just had not realized yet what it was that I was seeing. I chuckle still as I recall X exclaim that he could relate well with all my exes, evil men, drug addicts, pedophiles, violent men and thieves, who like him, once they realized they could not be who they pretended to be, sought to destroy me.

I have never been ashamed of surviving what others are capable of, in fact once I fight back the bitterness and anger I fill with pride that it wasn’t in my heart to even fathom their true intent. Inasmuch as it hurts to breathe the stagnant air of the world’s disease, too many, looking out for themselves at any cost, I would rather endure the hell I have, losing all that others covet in their attempts to emulate what they can only pretend to be.

An abused woman’s negotiation with herself

never hit meWriting in the first person, Reut Amit describes a dialog that many abused women know: As long as her partner wasn’t hitting her, she could put up with his lies, his cheating, his verbal and psychological abuse, and her isolation.

“I set a benchmark. The red line I wouldn’t cross. The minute he hit me, I would leave,” Amit writes on Huffington Post.

With the help of other abused women, she did not wait until the arbitrary red line was crossed to get out of the relationship.

Moral dilemma: Warning the next victim

Asian business man in mask, concept of hide, cheat, lie etc.Lovefraud recently received the following email from a reader whom we’ll call Alfred. The subject line of his email was, “A moral obligation?”

I’m two years removed from the brutal break-up with my ex-spath and all in all, can say I’m doing quite well and have recovered nicely! It was a LONG journey to get to the place I’m at and it’s a relief to be there after two years of continual obsessing and ruminating – I’ve finally reached the point where I just don’t care anymore. The shock of what I had in my life for 14 years has finally dissipated – the last emotion to go.

Not all sociopaths are charming and polished

Spath TalesEditor’s Note: This SPATH Tale was submitted by the Lovefraud reader whom we’ll call “Leslie Ann.” The names in this story have been changed.

I met Matt. I was tired of dating and definitely tired of dating jerks.

Matt was stable, not as good looking as the men I had dated before, in fact he seemed a little awkward. He was very kind and polite.

I was ready to get married and settle down.
