Lovefraud Lessons: Videos to help you escape sociopaths

Today Lovefraud introduces a new feature: Lovefraud Lessons, a series of videos to teach you how to recognize and recover from sociopaths.

Lovefraud Blog videos

Lessons #1, #2 and #3 are up now, and new videos will be posted every week. The primary venue, of course, is YouTube, on the Lovefraud Lessons channel. My goal is to reach as many people as possible, around the world, and teach them about sociopaths.

If you know someone who should watch the videos, forward a link!

    shane,
    yes, they mirror us. Mine seemed so humble. But there were little tells. He acted a bit childish, his voice was so soft, seductive and gentle. Almost like he was talking to a child.

    A bit later I noticed that he seemed resentful of successful people, he couldn’t compliment anyone. He was always comparing himself to others, saying how much more innately talented he was.

    Soon it was the obvious lies that were the most blatant red flags. but I didn’t know what they meant.

    Even at age 17, I could see something was off. It wasn’t anything specific. It was a general impression of having low self-esteem and trying to hide it by putting others down and by lying about himself. Rather than make me sick of him, I felt sorry for him and I excused it. I wanted to reassure him that he was every bit as good as he pretended to be.

    dumb, dumb, dumb. People with that kind of self-hate are toxic to others. You can’t fix it.

    Yep Skylar, so very true, and I saw the same behaviors in the disordered one that I was with. Interesting how they are all so much the same. As if cloned…so unoriginal. No authenticity. Sheesh. Well, all good, now that we are rid of them.

    Shane,
    Thank you for your comforting words and good wishes and the book on trust. I will read it. It’s a valuable experience to me to have you here and share my feelings and thoughts with you, it’s so comforting to see that I’m not alone in this, that there are people going through he same pain who can understand me and share positive thoughts. We all have many things in common, we are good people who made the mistake of believing that everybody is as good as we are or at least we didn’t know that the evil we fell prey to existed.
    I’m still suffering the aftermath of the traumatic bond with the spath, my mind feels numb and I sometimes move around like a zombi and I cry often and i feel pity for myself.
    I know this too shall pass and I have to give it time.
    Once again, thank you to you all for your support.

    Blessings and love.
