He did cheat and his addiction is spending money. The best man at our upcoming wedding also drives a Mercedes. He never even mentioned her to me red flag for her , although we talked for hours each day. Perhaps Transgenders have the answer, or maybe now would be a good time for all of the feminist to step forward and cut the incognito bullshit out. I asked him to go to counseling for months with no luck.
It can be quite crushing, when the man that you are in love with turns out to be nothing but a compulsive pathological liar. When you realise that you have been used by someone that you gave everything to. This person is someone that you shared your life with, and no doubt your finances too. You had hopes and dreams, none of which came true. It can feel shattering when you realise that this person has now moved on, and met someone new.
You can feel, used, abused and just worthless. These are common questions that are asked and felt by people who have been involved with a sociopath, once the sociopath has moved on to someone new. The thoughts in your mind, can feel soul destroying and the pain unbearable.
And that you do deserve to happy. This can feel like a kick in the teeth. I know that this hurts, but you are looking at the situation forgetting that your ex is a sociopath. Well the same thing is happening again. Only this time to someone else and not you, remember the drill. What is now happening, is that the sociopath has regained composure, put back on a new mask, and is now playing the game again.
This is cause to celebrate!!! Yes, that is right, you are FREE!! This is nothing to do with you. This is nothing to do with how inadequate YOU are. They WILL be the same with someone else. So celebrate your freedom. You have lost nothing. Not just sometimes, but all the time, as this is the way that they are. There is nothing for you to feel jealous of.
Yes, it is true that you were used, but this is not a reflection on you. This is a reflection on them. They CAN put on another mask and pretend again for a while, but this is all, this is all that is happening. Because one thing is for sure, that the sociopath is one personality type who can never change.
He left me and the kids but refuses to divorce. He tells me to divorce if I want to but he is fine separated. I am Christian and praying for his healing and return though. For over a year now. He did cheat and his addiction is spending money.
Yes I make it super easy for him to visit as he pleases. He always has plans and rarely takes the kids. I can only ensure the kids see him if make it easy for him to visit them. He does support financially. He prefers his single life but likes that we are still there for him when he needs us. I truly want to reconcile but he refuses to repent abd change his ways. Am I just damaging my self? I have no idea how to be mean and cut all ties. He is my family even though his actions are wrong.
They love to confuse you, this is the name of their game. His distance, has you still connected to him. Giving him ultimate power and control. He wants his cake and eat it, he probably has other women on the side and possibly a totally different life to the one that you know about.
He is in control, he is making the rules, and you are unhappy. Can you not go for divorce? Believe me he will continue I was dating this guy for three years found out he was still married to her. Living sseparately I assumimg she is a christian too. I really want to talk to her. He is sick as hell. I have to be honestly blunt here… Your husband will never change on his own.
Do you really think that will be the course and choice he will make? Believe when I say I know exactly what you are going through. I have been married for 15 exhausting years and did not know my husband was a sociopth untill God showed me to google sociopath at 3 something in the morning while laying in bed those couple years back.
I have been educating myself on sociopath and narcissists every sense. I cannot read enough because it has helped me to make my decision to finally go ahead and divorce. The last thing God showed me to do was to search the scriptures on divorce. I am very solid in my decision because of what I learned and read about divorce from the bible.
I am thinking about my life and how good it feels to be free. I am thinking about what a GREAT life I am walking towards, leaving all drama and the heaviness behind right where God wants me to leave as HE paves my way to a life of refreshing and renewal.
I am so excited about that!!! I just suggest you let go and let God. Your life is on hold as long as you are looking and waiting for an illusion to become real. You are only being controlled by the big bad boogie man under the bed.
I say wake up and slay him by saying goodbye, accept that the monster is not real. Soon enough you will see IT disipate before your eyes. Know that life is good, soooo good and God wants to show you that,…let HIM! You say you are a christian woman and so am I. Being a christian does not constitute being a fool for anyone. God bless you and may God open your minds eye to see. Some times we let our emotions get in the way of making the best, right and rational decisons.
All of us on here had to come to that point, I hope you will to. Hello everyone, These stories are so very real and true. One was actually written about me a couple years ago. And YES, he is still bouncing back and forth like a ping pong ball.
He moved on and married someone else, but only lasted the typical 3 year span. Well the game lasted here there and everywhere.
Then the hate again, then the no contact, then the lies being told and of course the cheating all over again. Short of being dead to get away from him, I took a job 3 states away and guess who made their way there? Not just once but twice in 6 months. All along having a girlfriend who he asked to marry him. Of course he just formally divorced in March and met her in June. Saw me in Aug and in Nov, yet asked the new girl to marry him.
Well the truth came out again and of course he showered her with gifts and bought xmas for her and her kids prematurely. He called to tell me the details, then suddenly hung up on me and did not try to call back until Sat nite and left me a VM that I had him blocked and he was going to eat with his brother.
He of course blocked me because he was with the girlfriend. HE will never change. He wears a sleep mask so how romantic is that? He contracted Hepatitis so how alluring is that?
Time to say a final Goodbye to all the drama, that he says is my fault. Yet my life goes on and is success and happy even without him. His life is a groundhog day of repeats. Do I want to stick around to that possibly happening? My son once said that it scares him to think I would ever be with him again, because he feels one day they may never see me again at the hands of the sociopath.
And now knowing of his disease and his admission to hurt me on many levels. My son may be right. I will always have feelings for him, for whatever reason, but I know it was never meant to be.
We remember the magic and how good it was, we miss them, but we wish they were a better man to be real. Please heed my words. Some times it is best to finally say Goodbye and let go. They just come back to mess with our lives and thoughts and move on to the next victim. Prayers to you all. Sounds like he has gone way downhill and past it.
It is good that you see him for who he is. Hepitis is infectious you do not want to catch that. As if being a psycho was not enough. How did he get that sex or injecting drugs? Hello, He got hepatitis from multiple sex partners that he solicited during his 8 unhappy marriage. Of course it was HER fault that he cheated. He bragged that it was a great night. He had never had so many partners at one time. Within 6 months, he was jaundice, itching all over, and deathly sick in the hospital. He tried to blame it on every one else and excuses but it caught up with him.
Unfortunately it did not kill him, which I truly feel the only way to be truly rid of a sociopath is if someone dies to be rid of them. He is onto marriage Like she will be the ONE who is meant for him to change..
They all are users and he buys, gas lighting them with things, then he uses that against them that they are users. I was the only one that never took from him. I had my own house, job and car and paid my own bills. That is what sets me apart from the rest. Yes he has really gone down hill and all the best to 9 and The cycle will never end for him. Of Course it is always the woman fault. It slips pretty fast. And with the new woman calling him a controlling asshole, and he spit in her face, yet made up with him, then she deserves just what he will give.
Stupid women are still stupid women or just plain users. This site is the best to help in healing, even after all this time. Since and his two marriages and countless flings since he and I was together. He still comes back around. Thank you both for your supportive words positivagirl and sweetpea. Regarding your question about divorce. It is my desire that he repents and we save our marriage and family.
However I truly believe if it is not Gods will that my husband will divorce me. I truly thank you for your comments! I was married to a narcissist for a year, we were together for 5 years. If they are not pure, and true please close the door and make it obvious. This is happening to me atm. Im trying to divorce him, but he keeps stalling it, and all of a sudden it went quiet and I found out he has someone new. Mariella, Do you live in a no fault state?
This is NOT ok. You have grounds to get out of this marriage. He cannot hold you hostage for long. I hope he moves on with the new supply. Same story over and over.
But how do I know that they are still the same when all I see is that they have changed for the better? Why is she so much better than me.. Yet, the man I loved left me and now is showing off his new girlfriend and it crushes me every time I hear about it. To realize that you are forgotten and was actually nothing to someone that you gave your love to.. How can you hurt another person like that.. Hey I know you are hurting.
You need to remember that they are psychological illusionists, nothing is really real! He is mirroring her now, not you. How you look or act is not of importance. It is about who can give him MORE of what he wants.
It is all about him, and his needs. What you look like and your values, matter very little, unless of course he can manipulate you. And sometimes telling larger lies to get larger effects," Dr. Stout told Interview Magazine. The DSM-V entry on antisocial personality disorder indicates that sociopaths lack remorse, guilt or shame.
A sociopath might not be anxious following a car accident, for instance, M. And experiments have shown that while normal people show fear when they see disturbing images or are threatened with electric shocks, sociopaths tend not to. Sociopaths bounce from goal to goal, and act on the spur of the moment, according to the DSM.
They can be irresponsible when it comes to their finances and their obligations to other people. Sociopaths tend not to have friends--not real ones, anyway.
Or all of their friends are superficially connected with them, friends by association," psychotherapist Ross Rosenberg, author of the Human Magnet Syndrome , told The Huffington Post.
Sociopaths can be very charismatic and friendly -- because they know it will help them get what they want. Their main tool to keep them from being discovered is a creation of an outer personality. Thomas described in a post for Psychology Today: I have the kind of smile that is common among television show characters and rare in real life, perfect in its sparkly teeth dimensions and ability to express pleasant invitation.
They live their life in the fast lane -- to the extreme -- seeking stimulation, excitement and pleasure from wherever they can get it," Rosenberg wrote in Human Magnet Syndrome. There are two things that are important to the sociopath. If you were to catch him out in a lie, he would neither win, or be in control. So he will do anything that he can do, to win the game, and control the game. After all, he never thinks about your needs, and this is in terms of both good and bad things.
He, like always is thinking about himself, not about you, your welfare or your needs. It is all just a game. A stupid, mindless game. That could continue for the rest of your life if you let it.
To stop playing the stupid game with the sociopath, who could play forever. If you let him. Maybe right now it is time to stop playing the game.
To finish the game. It is now time to focus on you. On your needs and your welfare. After all when you were with the sociopath, so much of your time and energy was wasted, defending yourself, and playing pointless mind games, nobody was taking care of your needs. Endless stress and endless drama. There comes a time, when the only thing to do, is to put in place no contact rules, stick to them, and focus on you, and loving yourself and creating your own beautiful world.
Both man and woman alike want an ambitious person. Ambitious qualities, pioneering qualities are found attractive in both genders. Would someone care to explain the inevitable demons that latches onto those with this particular mindset. Perhaps Transgenders have the answer, or maybe now would be a good time for all of the feminist to step forward and cut the incognito bullshit out.
The NEXT generation both genders or all 3 genders need the answers. Give them the enlightenment, and guidance. I guess for people who have dated a psycho or sociopath, a person who has their own ambitions is preferable to one who wants a partner as a career option.
Those of us who are guilty of this have nothing to worry about. Pardon my projection, but such accusations and such a scenario demands for some type of defense mechanism be it projection or detachment.
I am in a relationship for 4 years now with this woman who I know fits this description to the tee.
