Strongawoman I find the electric static crackling over the trim really livens up the long winter nights 😉 x

It took me several months to break out of a 3 year relationship with a sociopath. I met him on Match, so I will never online date again. I knew something was wrong but I could never put my finger on it. He was a major sex addict. He lied and cheated constantly. I ended things all the time, almost once a month. He always begged me back and promised me the world. He had some kind of control over my emotions. Very manipulative. I am looking for a way to put this behind me and move on. I feel so used and betrayed.

Hello mich0101,

welcome…… and the good news is that you found your way to LF! Read, absorb, post and vent. Good luck.

mich0101,

The way to put this behind you and move on is to learn about what a psychopath is and how they manipulate us, how to spot them before they get you hooked. Donna Andersen’s book “Red Flags of Love Fraud” iis probably the best first book to read, and “Without Conscience” by Dr. Robert hare is number two, and keep on reading and blogging here. There is lots of great information here and people who understand and are supportive. You are NOT ALONE. Welcome.

Thanks, I am already finding this site to be helpful. None of my friends understand. They just tell me to put it behind me and move on with my life. I have a therapy apt next week but I know it’s going to be a long haul. And we live in the same town and I don’t know what I will do if I run into him, his friends or family.
