vaguely familiar? read the article. consider printing it out and bringing it to your therapist, lawyer, and friends and see if they agree. then prepare your support network, contact the people that love you most, and get out before your risk escalates into something truly dangerous like what happened to some of the women referenced in this article. these behaviors span all socioeconomic and religious strata. don’t wait for the hammer to fall twice.
“Truth is not a convenient fiction. Similarly, love is not a power game for anyone capable of this emotion. It’s the deepest and most significant bond human beings form with one another and the foundation of our lives. If you encounter a man who gives any signs that he regards love as a game and you as a “prize” to be won, fold your cards and quickly leave the table. Or, better yet, refuse to engage with him at all. Any intimate relationship with a psychopath is a gamble where you risk losing everything and from which you have nothing to gain.
