Abandonment and dating
Unbeknownst to the innocent person about to begin dating a sociopath, she was targeted by him for his personal gain.
He'll woo her and sweep her off her feet, and when she decides to date him, she'll think it's her choice. From the beginning of the relationship, the sociopath was in control.
Remember that it may be difficult for your friend to even bring up a conversation about the abuse they’re experiencing.
It is difficult to see someone you care about hurt others.
Jodi Arias – in my opinion, – a good example of a woman with quiet BPD (she functions superficially well but her chameleon-like façade breaks open once her relational views are challenged) murdered her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander; Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction attempted to murder her former lover but failed and found her own death.
” Sooner rather than later he starts to resent walking on eggshells around his lover.The real reason she will date him is hidden to her. Despite all of the difficulties, her sociopathic husband was someone "..whom I shared a million happy, fun times" (2009).She'll date him because he's identified her as someone who will meet a need (. The sociopath carefully crafts his relationships so that he can get his partners to do his bidding, whatever that may be.The film Fatal Attraction (quite an excellent performance by Glenn Close) and the recent court case of Jodi Arias come to mind.
What do all the films and print stories have in common? Dating a person with BPD is not part of your deal – or so you thought.
Remember we all have personality traits, which does not make us personality disordered.
