    It's been a long, long time but the boy who I believed was my first love I am beginning to think may have been a sociopath.  It's so hard for me to judge now because so much time has past, but most everything fits the profile.  Only it felt so real, he was so perfect, he...

    I think dealing with the fact that I was so deceived is the hardest, now that the relationship is over. It's hard. I don't go a day without thinking about him, even though I know for a fact that he is not thinking about me. I'm looking forward to the time when I don't think about...

    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...
