How do I avoid dating a sociopath like my father?

A 24-year-old woman asks for advice. Her father is a sociopath, and so was her boyfriend. She doesn’t know what a healthy relationship looks like so how can she learn to avoid dating another sociopath?

I explain that the young woman not only had poor role models, she’s suffering from a betrayal bond. The best thing she can do is work on her personal recovery. Then, I tell her how to protect herself from sociopaths.

Perfect. Love this new video feature!

Lovefraud ROCKS, and so do you, Donna.

Thank you for your invaluable help.


The work you are doing matters. Understanding personality disorders and the patterns they create equals freedom!

Think of it this way, daily, you are helping to liberate those who were in bondage and often don’t even know it. Your work is an ice cold glass of water after days in a dry desert.

Rock on Donna!
