Psychopaths aren't capable of love. Find out what happens when they target someone who is, in this insightful and practical book by a woman who was a victim.
When we're daydreaming about falling in love none of us thinks that we might fall for a psychopath. The author didn't even know it was a possibility, let alone as common as it is -- until it happened to her. No one is immune.
Most victims say they believed they had met their soul mate. But as the psychopath gains power and control, what seemed like heaven becomes an ever-worsening emotional hell.
This is not about men who are out to use women for sex or for anything else. A psychopath's goals are much more sinister than that. His plan is to dominate, control and humiliate the victim so he can diminish her in every way, while he savors watching the process unfold. Using her is only secondary.
The aftermath can include rage, obsessive thoughts, lost self-esteem, fear, anxiety, the inability to trust, use of drugs, physical illness, and irrational and extreme behavior such as withdrawal or even suicide.
Don't let it happen to you. If it already has, don't let it happen again.
This book -- which contains the best material from the author's popular blog PsychopathsandLove.com, as well as new writings -- will help you gain a clearer understanding of these harmful pathological relationships. Learn what a psychopath is and how to possibly spot one if you're being pursued. Find out what makes you vulnerable. Learn how to tell if you're being manipulated. Finally, get ideas about healing afterward and for preventing it from happening again -- or for the first time.

"I just want you to know what a valuable service you’ve provided by creating this site. I stumbled upon it the other day while doing some research on psychopathy in an attempt to understand how the individual I was involved with could do all the things he did. It was such a relief to realize, after reading several of your posts, that this monster who had me believing he was one in a million is actually just one OF a million… psychopaths. He’s no more than a common, predictable set of symptoms and patterns. He fits the mold perfectly. I understand better than ever now that none of this was my fault; that he targeted me; and that the mental anguish he put me through was something I could not have resisted if I tried… because I could never be someone who thinks the way he does. Your information helped me realize that fully and take that last step of discarding any last little attempt to “reconcile” the unthinkable." L.B.
"Thank you for a brilliant and concise definition of a psychopath. This information is the best I have seen on this topic...I now know I am not crazy. Thank you.
