Why I wrote, Narcissists, SOCIOPATHS & Wolves: Lessons From Little Red Riding Hood

Many of you know me from my book, Husband, Liar, Sociopath:  How He Lied, Why I Fell For It & The Painful Lessons Learned. Through writing the book and including chapters on Lovefraud, I’ve tried to share the insights I paid such a high price to obtain. For almost twenty years, I was married to someone I now believe is a sociopath. My corrosive, confusing marriage, the toxic divorce, and the ongoing, financially and emotionally punitive post-divorce aftershocks redefined my life in ways I never imagined. I had to understand how my life got so derailed, how my confidence was decimated, and how my identity was almost destroyed. Through my book, I wanted to share what I’d learned in case it could be useful to others.

My experience with my narc ex boyfriend

Left my ex since almost 4 years now, the hell I went through with him, it’s a miracle I’m still here.

Even though I’ve left he still pops up here and there doing the hoovering manuever, which is well known for borderline narcs. He would use the silent treatment on me and it drove me crazy as at that time. I had no idea about the narcissistic personality disorder one can have.

Tyler Tessier pleads for his girlfriend’s life, after he allegedly killed her

Laura Wallen, 31, of Olney, Maryland, was last heard from on Sept. 4. She was a beloved high school teacher who was four months pregnant. Suspicion immediately fell upon her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Tyler Tessier, 32, of Damascus Maryland.

With the agreement of Wallen’s family, Montgomery County Police invited Tessier to speak at a news conference about the case. They wanted to hear what Tessier had to say. Tessier gave a command performance, pleading for Wallen to return. He neglected to mention that he allegedly already killed her.

Wallen’s body was discovered in a shallow grave on Sept. 13. She had been shot in the back of the head.

5 steps to avoid being taken in a romance scam — beware of fake documentation

A scammer stole this image and used it to start an online romance, then took money from his target.

Fake documentation is easy to create, and romance scammers know it. I recently received the following email from a reader in Denmark whom we’ll call “Grete”:

The sociopath is a neighbor of a family member!! Ugh!!!!

First, I would like to say how beneficial reading the Lovefraud site has been. It has really pulled me through some rough moments of dealing with the sociopath that I was romantically linked to.

He and I were in a LDR relationship (or so I thought) for a year and a half. I knew something was off right away, but I thought it was fear of commitment on his part or depression. He did all of the textbook things a sociopath would do (before I knew what one was.) He blew hot and cold, would ignore me for weeks, try to make me jealous, disappear on special days even when I was in town, and so much more.The final straw was him ignoring me when I was in town and then basically inviting me over for a booty call. That is when I said no more. Well, his rage came out along with a horrendous discard.

Unbelievable love scam costs woman $1.1 million in four months

Unbelievable love scam costs woman $1.1 million in four months

“Grace,” a permanent resident of Singapore, met Lee, a Canadian businessman, through a friend. They kept in contact via Facebook and met multiple times for dinner and drinks. But this was a long con — about six months later, Lee put the squeeze on Grace. He claimed that he was stopped at the Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, airport, with US$2 million in cash. He needed her help to prove his innocence.

Then, his accomplice, pretending to be a United Nations employee, told Grace that Malaysian customs wanted US$250,000 in exchange for his release. She came up with the money — and lots more. Nine months later, she reported him to the police. Her money is gone.

When am I going to stop being angry?

When am I going to stop being angry?

Mary Ann GlynnBy Mary Ann Glynn, LCSW, CHT

After being in a relationship with a sociopath, clients are often conflicted by the idea of forgiveness as recommended by their faith system (I checked and all the world’s major religions admonish to forgive) as opposed to the perpetual anger they feel. As therapists, we never pressure someone who has been abused to forgive their perpetrator, because we don’t want to minimize the impact of that abuse. While someone is moving through the emotions of healing from abuse and trauma, they are going to experience quite a bit of anger, even rage, which can hang around for a long time.
