Sometimes, we do not realize but the subtle behavior of your partner could indicate signs of a psychopath which you need to look out for.
Psychopaths are not good at forging long-lasting and meaningful relationships. They are usually superficial and wear a mask over their true nature. Their relationships, which may include friendships, close relationships with work colleagues are not strong.
You would notice that there are very few relationships they share except the one they share with you. You, therefore, become the center of their world and not in a good way. And this lack of relationship plays badly and affects your freedom as well.
Psychopaths are extremely good at lying and they can tell the greatest of lies with a straight face. You would not even realize that you have been lied to and they would keep continuing doing so without a care in the world.
Even when you can see that they are lying and you catch them in the act, they would find a way to justify their lies. They would conveniently shift the conversation and lie still more without a single iota of guilt.
Psychopaths are extremely good at masking their emotions and they rarely let out what they truly feel inside. They are good at hiding their thoughts and even their facial expressions which may betray their inner truths.
This also means that they are good at hiding any sort of remorse if they feel any. They are usually not blessed with a conscience which leads to the feeling of guilt and if there comes a time when they do, they know how to mask them too.
Leave it to a psychopath to play the victim card. Anything that may happen, a psychopath would be the first one to cry foul and be the first one to retaliate. They would act wounded and hurt even when you know that it is not the truth.
Further, this means that you would eventually be called the oppressor and you would be blamed for everything that goes wrong in their lives. You would be their scapegoat and their finger would immediately point towards you.
The result of their constant manipulation and lies is that you would slowly start feeling trapped in the relationship. You would feel your freedom being taken away from you and gradually a feeling of helplessness would take over you.
The more you feel trapped, the stronger their grip would become on your life and the tighter they'll push. You would wish to leave the relationship but they would play the victim card again and before you know, you are in deeper trouble already.
Psychopaths believe that they are entitled to certain privileges which, in fact, is not based on reality. They assume things that are not true and they judge people based on mere opinions. Their sense of entitlement makes them even more dangerous.
They act under the assumption that you owe them the relationship and that they are entitled to act in the crassest way possible. They would not care a jot for your individuality but do everything in their power to justify their own.
A psychopath has the urge to control everything in their life. It is their compulsion to micromanage things and keep a tight grip on those they have in their lives. It is one of the reasons why they don't have a lot of friends in the first place.
They would need to know about everything in your life, and not in a good way. They would need to know where you went, who you talked to, what you did and everything else so that they can manipulate you, control you, and dig their claws deeper into you.
A psychopath is blessed with an ego the size of the Empire States building but not as strong. Their narcissistic tendencies are not based on reality and hence their egos are fragile, to say the least. There is usually a big gap between who they think they are and who they really are.
This means that they get angry, annoyed, frustrated etc. quite easily and at the slightest provocations. They retaliate quickly and they do so dangerously. The world, for them, revolves around them and dealing with such people could be both tiresome and dangerous.
