Struggling With A Potential Sociopath
I've struggled with the confusion for a long time. I have been dating a girl for a little over a year who tells me she fears she might be a sociopath. At first I laughed if you're worried about being a sociopath it cannot be possible. But then she'd talk and I'd feel it...We found a stray kitten a while ago and she hated it finally the cat became scared of her because she was aggressive toward it and it ran away. I asked her if she felt guilty about her behavior and if she missed him. Since I felt both these things, but she did not. She laughed a little and then said no I don't feel bad at all. She had an ex who she was particularly unkind to and I asked if she felt guilty then, no she didn't. She said the only time she felt bad about her actions is when someone hurt her in the same way. And not bad about what she did but the realization that others can hurt her as well. The other night when we were laying bed I thought maybe she's more of dog person so I asked her if she would feel bad for hurting a puppy and she said no. So I finally brought it home to my selfish thoughts and I asked her if she would feel bad for hurting me. She asked me how...and I said in any way and she just told me she loved me and went to bed. I know it's more in depth but I can only focus on the surface. I'm worried that I'm investing my emotions in someone who doesn't care if they hurt me or others. I'm afraid I'm invested in someone who cannot and does not care about empathy.
