I dated a psychopath for 3 years. Before you get to know her she is charming, hilarious, relatable, and just fun to be around, but after getting to know her you start to see her manipulative, psychopathic side. It makes me wonder why she has so many friends? She is a compulsive liar so maybe people don't know how she really is, but she has a best friend she's had for many years and has even lived with her but her friend doesn't seem to notice. My ex would always say that I'm the only one who knew her for what she really was. She would beat me, manipulate me, lie to me about everything, emotionally abuse me and not feel any guilt or compassion but was amazing at faking it. She would make me pity her and use this to her advantage. She got me to do things I never would have done on my own. Yet I still yearned to be around her and still miss her 6 months after our break up. Why are people so drawn to psychopaths? Everyone thought she was so cool, people wanted to be around her, her friends would literally fight over time with her. I don't understand why people love her so much when she's so cruel and has no love or compassion for anyone but herself? She would use and steal from every single friend she had. She would talk shit on her closest friends, yet me who is always honest, true to myself and empathetic has no friends? I was thinking it might have something to do with the fact that you have to fight to be in her life, but I accept anyone so its not much of a challenge. I don't know, what do you think?

Even though i do agree that people are drawn to psychopaths... what you described is not really psychopathic... worst case... borderline. Probably anger issues or the like. A true psycho would get the same reaction from others... and would make you feel like shit without having to do much physically. I know... i was raised by one... think I'm one too... who knows... :)
