As love can often blind you. So here are nine signs to help you identify if you're dating a sociopath. One They're motivated solely by their own personal desires. Basic human needs like food, water or money are what drives them If you talk to them about making the world a better place they won't be motivated In a relationship context only things like money, sex, food or whatever you can offer are interesting to them Two They are highly manipulative. Sociopaths usually prey on your emotions They find your weak spots and take advantage of them. They socially isolate you from your friends and even family Not allowing you to go anywhere such as the grocery shop without letting them know and gaining their approval first This behaviour weakens your relationship with other people so you end up needing your partner more and more. Three They don't walk the walk. Your partner will tell you one thing but do another or they'll say how they hate certain things but allow those things into their life They tell you their grand plans but, none of it shows in their actions. This behaviour can be confusing and disorienting especially when they're being hypocritical For example They may tell you that they hate when you're late to dates because it shows that you have no respect for them yet they themselves will often be late or even reschedule plans with you with no valid explanation or apology Four They lack sympathy Empathy is the ability to understand someone's emotions Sociopaths certainly understand your emotions they just have no sympathy for you When you're feeling sad they simply don't see it as something that should concern them but rather, as an opportunity to exploit your perceived weakness Five They don't take responsibility Sociopaths are usually narcissistic so they believe they are never at fault no matter what when confronted on their behavior and asked to change their ways they will say yes to keep you by their side however, there won't actually be any changes continuing the cycle of mistreatment and manipulation Six They constantly insult you your partner's jabs don't always have to be direct Let's say you're wearing an outfit similar to another person you both encounter Your partner might make a comment about how ugly and gross the other person's clothes are and if you confront them they'll accuse you of being paranoid and play the victim Seven You're always guilty You're the one at fault for every mishap and your partner will never admit when they're wrong They'll manipulate situations to become the victim when they're clearly not In the end you're the one apologizing Eight They'll project their insecurities on you and everyone else This is the result of their narcissism and manipulation habits as they're always trying to look perfect or at least better than the rest Nine They can adapt themselves In negative ways they will adapt to the situation and to you if need be For example they may yell at you, making you shut up and playing with your emotions but when you lash out they promise to change In the long run however, they actually become more manipulative causing you to become even more insecure Based on these characteristics Do you think you know anyone who may be dating a sociopath?
