The Signs You Might Be Dating a Psychopath

You Feel Like You're Going Crazy


Psychopaths are the masters of manipulation. They have a way of turning everything around on you. You start to have little battles with yourself in your head, overreact, or start to second-guess yourself. Psychopaths like to confuse their partners and make it near impossible to have a logical argument. Even when you are in the right, you will never feel that you are because they will manipulate everything you say.

If you begin to question who you are and your values, you might be dating a psychopath. You start to think you are going crazy because you constantly doubt everything you do and say. You might start to become paranoid about things like what kind of clothes you wear, what you say to friends, or if people are talking about you. Who you once were and felt comfortable being might be a fleeting idea.

You Feel Like You Have No Voice

When you talk to your partner you feel like you are never heard because they just don't listen. It's like you are talking to a brick wall. When they do choose to listen, your words are often taken out of context or used against you. If you said you would like to watch a romantic movie, your partner would try to convince you that you are silly for liking that type of movie, or if you told him you wanted to go out for dinner, your partner would try to make sure you do something they'd want to do instead. You feel completely ignored and that your thoughts and opinions are not valid.

They Frequently Lie

A psychopath will lie about almost everything they do, regardless if they actually have a reason to do so. This can include where they have been, who they were with, why they were there, and the like. They don’t care how their lies will affect another person, and will never own up to a lie. Instead, they will twist your words and make you think you were the one in the wrong.

Psychopaths will even lie to get you into a relationship with them by telling you they like and want the same things as you. In reality, they don't like or want the same things as you at all. The only thing on their mind is the need to have control over you. A psychopath will lie in order to get what they want, and can even see it as a fun way to manipulate other people.

You Feel Isolated and Alone


You feel like you are walking on eggshells; the smallest things will make your partner lose their temper. If your friends ask you to come over or if your family asks you out to dinner, you're scared to tell your partner for fear of their reaction. Your partner wants to know who you're friends with, making you feel guilty about spending time with them, and eventually you slowly start to spend less time with your friends until you feel like your partner is the only person left in your life.

All of this is so they can make you feel isolated and lose all of your support, giving them more power and control.

They Feel No Guilt or Remorse

Relationships Thats Hurt

If your partner is a psychopath, they may hurt you either physically and verbally. However, they don’t feel bad for hurting you or anyone for that matter. They have no remorse for their actions and they will manage to blame you for what they've done and make you feel bad for saying anything at all. They do not respect your feelings and what you need in a relationship.

If you caught your partner cheating, a psychopath may promise that it was a one-time thing and will never happen again. Despite this, no matter what they say it always seems to happen again and again. They continually make choices that hurt you without showing the slightest amount of care. This is their way of manipulating you. The only thing they are sorry about is being caught.

A psychopath will do whatever they can to make you feel bad for them. They may come up with a dark and terrible past, and share their troubles about how they were abused, from a broken home, weren’t loved as a child, has a psycho ex, or a terminal illness. They will always play the victim, and say things like “I don’t feel good about myself” or “people always leave me”. Their aim is to get you to sympathize and feel sorry for them. The reason they do this is to manipulate you in not leaving them despite their treatment and behavior towards you. This is a trap that most people fall into, however your own mental and physical health should be taking number one priority at all times.
