    His eyes pierce me. His smile his voice.

    .. His touch when he wasn't playing a game. I know he had to love me.... During the middle of the night on more the one occasion he would roll over and hold me so tight and say love you in a sleepy you can hardly hear voice. Would someone go that far to play me? I don't know... I...

    Does Sociopath Equal Serial Killer?

    No. A sociopath doesn't have to kill anyone to be a sociopath. They can simply ruin lives, destroy dreams, leaving wreckage in their wake as they move on to the next quest for whatever it is that motivates their personal sociopathic drive.   And they simply do not...
