Psychopaths move extremely quickly. He will play into every fantasy and insecurity you have. This is called "love bombing. He is just like you. Psychopaths will try to convince you that you are soul mates, just alike. He loves all the things you love and you have all of the same interests.

If you had a tough childhood, he will say something like, "We both had it rough. Pay careful attention to what a psychopath says on the first few dates about his exes and other people in his life. Is his ex girlfriend crazy and stalking him? Did another girlfriend rob him blind? Is his mother controlling and horrible? Did he miraculously beat cancer but it could come back at any minute?

Does he break his foot on your second date and has to cancel? But strangely is okay for the third date? Did he lose his first wife in a car accident that left him with brain trauma yet he talks fine and seems fine? A psychopath goes out of his way to please you. Cracks in the mask. A psychopath will sometimes blurt out something odd about himself, apropos of nothing. A form of keeping you off balance -- but also possibly an unconscious slip of the mask of his persona.

Once psychopaths have you hooked after the "love bombing" and "idealization" phase, they then begin to devalue you. The first step in that is usually to give you the silent treatment over something. Psychopaths are also known to disappear for days at a time. Be sure, the silent treatment and disappearing act will be laid squarely at your feet. In reality, he is off sizing up his next target somewhere. Psychopaths love to work you up into a state of obsessive frenzy, so to do that, they idealize you, give you fabulous sex, and then begin pulling away and "triangulating.

It could be an ex-wife or ex-girlfriend, a friend of the same sex, or even a celebrity. In the psychopaths mind, everyone else wants him, so you better be on your best behavior, or he will move on to one of his adoring fans.

The final phase of the psychopath is the "discard" phase. After he sucks you in with idealization, then begins to devalue you, he will suddenly discard you as if you never had a relationship. You are suddenly completely worthless to him. He will usually move on to another target at this point. If he senses you are done with him, he will suddenly do an about-face, and begin bombarding you with pleas to stay together. The only way to get rid of a psychopath is to completely go no contact. He will make that difficult for you -- some psychopaths will stalk you, most will Hoover.

But to engage him in any way, even just to tell him off, only leaves you open to more mind games, which he will win, because he has no feelings. Those who have children with psychopaths must develop low contact, and keep in touch only as much as absolutely needed as regards the children. Of course, nobody is perfect, and some people are just immature and go through periods of giving the silent treatment, or "devaluing" you with critical comments.

There are also plenty of garden-variety jerks out there who will engage in a lot of "psychopathic" behavior without being clinical psychopaths. But if your lover engages in much or all of this behavior, then he or she is likely psychopathic, and you should run for the hills!
