Hi folks,

It has been a while since I posted. Mainly because I am not the victim of an SPATH and feel a bit like “I don’t have the right to comment”. I don’t know if that makes sense but, there you go.

Having said that, a little correction is in order : the quoted article is the Irish Mail or at least a report from the Irish Mail. The man is question, who I honestly do not know if he is a SPATH or not, lives in Ireland and the properties that are discussed are in Ireland, not England or the UK.

Apart from that, sorry for the correction….


Dear Nemo,

Actually, glad that you are here and glad for your posts….this is an “equal opportunity blog,” and having a non-effected person here I think is a helpful thing, for both you and the rest of us. You learn how to keep from becoming a victim and give us the unbiased opinion of someone who has so far managed to escape abuse of a psychopath.

As far as the guy being or not being a psychopath, he did kill his wife, so he is probably not a “real sweet guy” to start with, and obviously has some “psychopathic traits” like violence for a starter. The situation article came via Daily mail, but thanks for your correction of venue.

Glad to have you around and back [email protected]! Thanks.

Ox Drover,

Thanks for the positive feedback. I initially found this site because I was convinced a friend of mine was going out with a narcissist/psychopath.

I came across this blog and e-mailed a query to Donna, for her experience, etc.

In any event, my friend decided to stay with him and is just about to have her second kid with him so she made her decision. That may sound cold but, after many discussions, she made up her mind to be with him and be financially secure rather than leaving him and taking a risk.

As she can’t speak English, I couldn’t just show her the site and say “read”…..

Unfortunately, if violence were just a trait of psychopaths, most of us would be labelled as such.

I don’t know the circumstances; I don’t know if his wife gave him hell (not a reason for murder I hesitate to add) and he just flipped, though, if memory serves, it was premeditated.

In any event, one violent act, even murder, does not a psychopath make.

Having said that, my rule of thumb has been, since I care to remember, if anything happens that rings any warning bells, assess the situation and take appropriate action. Appropriate action usually entailing getting out of the persons proximity.

This works for needy people, habitual users, emotional vampires, right through to your average psychopath.

Again, a rule of thumb which has served me well is, show no emotion. People who prey on others, no matter in what capacity, crave that emotional hit. They need to see that they can control you, make you happy, sad, frightened, etc. I believe it is no co-incidence that a correct response (I am not saying it is the only correct one) is to act as you would when confronted by a wild animal or savage dog, stay calm, show no emotion, especially fear, and back away slowly.

Despite my lack of posts, I do read a lot of them and, although it may be a while between posts from me, I am always reading with interest, horror and anger, and, happily, a few times with joy for someone who has beaten the psychopath at his/her own game.


Dear Nemo,

I am sorry that your friend chose the path she did, but each of us must choose our own path, and sometimes “security” even in slavery is preferable to some people than freedom with the possibility of starvation!

Not every toxic or even every dangerous person is a psychopath, but many that are dangerous are psychopaths. The average score (mean score) of all criminals is 22 on the PCL-R, and 30 is the US accepted score for being a “full fledged” psychopath. In Europe I believe it is 25, so while the “IS or AIN’T” of being a psychopath has a “cut off score” just like being or not being Mentally retarded has a “cut off score” but in actual fact that NUMBER has little meaning. The level of TRAITS of a psychopath can vary significantly from the low end to a serial killer.

Psychopaths are found in street gangs and in corner offices in big corporations and everywhere in between.

Where ever they are found, however, we need to be able to recognize them for what they are, because whether they are on the street, living next door to you, or robbing your bank, in one way or another they are all dangerous.

Glad you are here!
