Do you want to tell your story? Complete the Lovefraud Media survey!

Lovefraud’s primary goal is to educate the public about sociopaths. One of the most powerful ways to do that is for people like you to tell your story.

Many Lovefraud readers have told me that reading about the experiences of others on Lovefraud is incredibly validating. They learn that no, they aren’t crazy — others have been through the same madness.

Would you like to share your story? If so, please complete the Lovefraud Media Survey.

Your story may be chosen to be published on Lovefraud as a “Spath Tale” — these stories are always posted anonymously — without any identifying information.

Lovefraud also works to raise awareness of sociopaths beyond this website through media coverage. I often hear from reporters and TV producers who are looking for stories. For that reason, I keep a database of people who are willing to talk to the media about what happened to them. If your story matches what a reporter or producer is looking for, I always get your permission first before forwarding your contact information.

Your story could be featured in a web or newspaper article, or on a TV show. If you’re interested, complete our survey. Please include enough detail to convey about your experience so I can tell what happened and make an appropriate referral. Let’s raise awareness of the sociopaths who live among us.

I finally feel ready to share my story, by working on the survey as we speak. Hopefully, it won’t take long.


I have started reading “When Love Is a Lie”, by Zari Ballard and I feel like she’s writing the book about me!!! I’ve been in a relationship with a narcissist for almost 8 years (married to the man for 5 1/2 years). I honestly don’t even know where to start. I have four beautiful children (none of which are his, thank goodness) and, as a mother, I know that my situation is wearing on them. They know I love them so very much but they are confused as to why I stay with someone who treats me so badly. I feel like a terrible mother… With that being said, I realized two summers ago that I was married to a raging narcissist (knowing sooner than that but in denial of course). I have made excuses upon excuses as to why I should stay, ie. I didn’t get married to get divorced, I have 4 kids to provide for and I’m scared to do it alone, he’ll change, he always does…. But each cycle seemed to get worse so I finally packed up my kids (2 summers ago) and left north dakota to head back home to my family in Idaho. I was tired of being called a bitch daily, fighting for a husband that was cruel to me. I begged cried and pleaded for so many years. I apologized when it was my fault, I apologized when it was his fault. I was done. I couldn’t do it anymore. I made it 2 months, followed the rules (to a certain extent), ignoring him, not answering calls and texts (wishing I would’ve blocked him because I’d still read the texts) he cried and begged and promised he’d change. He said he was sleeping with my wedding dress, wasn’t getting any sleep, he claimed he had visited a counselor, said he’d do anything if I’d just come home. So, I did. And things were good for about two weeks. I found out he lied about seeing a counselor. He started accusing me of sleeping around in Idaho, calling me a slut and a whore. And once again, he had me hooked into feeling the need to defend myself… Complete desperation… But at this point I felt there was no turning back. I couldn’t call my family who begged me to not go back… Who warned me about exactly what would happen… A year has gone by and I still find myself fighting a fight I will never win. I’m lost. I’m tired of crying. I feel alone, as all of my family is 1000 miles away and they’ve heard me cry wolf 100 times too many!!! I know what I need to do… I don’t know why I’m so scared to do it!!!
