A reporter wants to know about your therapy experience
Lovefraud has an opportunity to educate thousands of people, including counselors, about the importance of understanding sociopaths — narcissists, antisocials, borderlines, psychopaths and other exploiters.
We are working with a reporter from a major news organization on a story about what happens when targets, victims and survivors of sociopaths seek mental health counseling. Would you like to share your story?
I know I’ve spoken to many people who relayed that they had difficulty finding a therapist who understood their situation. We now have a chance to draw attention to this issue. Feel free to describe what was helpful, and what was not helpful.

Best of the Lovefraud Blog books
Lovefraud now has more than 4,000 blog posts. The articles are chock-full of great information, but because they’re spread over 13 years of archives, they can be hard to find. So Lovefraud author Donna Andersen has curated her best posts, organized them into four topics, and will publish them as the Best of the Lovefraud Blog series. The books are:
Are you desperately trying to understand someone who appears to be perfectly normal, but is intentionally creating havoc in your life? You may be dealing with a sociopath — someone who could be diagnosed with antisocial, narcissistic, borderline, histrionic or psychopathic personality disorder. This collection of Lovefraud articles explains how they behave and why they are so profoundly different from the rest of us.
Your partner, who was once so charming and attentive, has become exploitative and abusive, and now you’re wondering how you got yourself into this mess. Perhaps he or she is a sociopath — someone who could be diagnosed with antisocial, narcissistic, borderline, histrionic or psychopathic personality disorder. This collection of Lovefraud articles explains sociopathic strategies for reeling you in — and why you don’t notice the hooks until long after you are caught.
Dealing with Sociopaths
How to survive the antisocials, narcissists and psychopaths in your life
Launch date: January 3, 2020
Sociopaths do not follow the rules of normal human interaction. These people, who could be diagnosed with antisocial, narcissistic, borderline, histrionic or psychopathic personality disorders, can appear to be normal, but they live their lives by manipulating others. This collection of Lovefraud articles explains sociopathic objectives, tactics and traps, so you can discern what is really going on and take steps to protect yourself.
Recovery from the Sociopath
After the antisocial, narcissist or psychopath, how to rebuild your life
Launch date: February 10, 2020
Betrayal by a sociopath shakes you to your core. You suffer emotionally, psychologically, financially, physically, spiritually. It can be difficult to recover from a sociopath — meaning someone with antisocial, narcissistic, borderline, histrionic or psychopathic personality disorder — but with time and commitment, you can do it. This collection of Lovefraud articles will help you.
