Being ruthless, lacking conscience (if you can get away with what you want to do without getting caught) stepping on the feelings of others, pushing those who are weaker out of the way, exploiting the vulnerable—–These personality traits and the behaviors and consequences of them have become unimportant to many in the current society today.As long as you get the goods, make the big money, are clever at getting around the laws and have the right connections and an impeccable image, you are praised , raised up, financially rewarded and by some who are mesmerized by you—considered a hero, an innovator.

I have read and heard from so many women/men who have fallen into this trap.As the number of narcissists increases every day, the number of bloodless sociopaths swells as well.I will have missed my chance.” Certainly you had no idea of the real nature of the bargain that you were striking.It was a deal with the devil and you were easy prey. You could not have known that this man was a sociopath (I call them bloodless sociopaths because they don’t commit physically violent crimes) Their crimes are psychological, emotional and financial.You are painfully discovering that the man you married is not only a narcissist, he is a sociopath.(This post applies to male and female sociopaths.) The warning signs were there early but you were so dazzled by his perfect charming irresistible facade that you didn’t notice.
