Reply To: Sociopath, or just some form of narcissist?



Thanks, everyone. I wasn’t sure if I was overreacting, because my story isn’t nearly as bad as many others I’ve read, but it’s good to know it’s not just me being paranoid or overly critical.

I guess the hardest thing for me at this point is coming to terms with the fact that none of it was real. That the person I fell in love with doesn’t actually exist, and never did. It’s like… I’m grieving for a mirage.

I just wish I’d seen it a lot sooner. I stupidly assumed that I’d be able to spot a sociopath or narcissist, because something about them would be “off”. But if that were true, then I suppose they wouldn’t be able to dupe as many people as they do. How can you tell, when they seem so sincere? How can you tell if ANYONE is what they seem to be?
