They make false empty promises, waste your time, and say things that they have no intention of ever coming true. Lack of connection to their past It is often too late and you are emotionally involved, by the time that you realise you haven’t met anybody from his past.He/she often moved to your city/town for work reasons, or some other excuse. At first it doesn’t occur to you that you have never met anybody of significant importance to him.Your mind tells you that this is probably not true, but we push this to the back of our minds.
The sociopath, once they have selected you as an appropriate target, makes you the centre of attention and the focus of their world.
They bombard you with telephone conversations, texts, and he wants to see you every minute of every day. But after a while you long to see old family and friends.
His words are smooth and fast, and he is never stuck for something to say.
He can be amazing company, and can light up your life with energy, charisma, and promises of a rich and bright future ahead.
Most people do not meet others close in the very initial stages of a relationship; it’s usually an intimate time.
Because of this, at first, you do not notice this lack of connections from his past.
It is as the relationship progresses, and after you have introduced him to everyone that is close to you, you start to wonder, when you will meet people that he is close to?
Somebody who is as perfect as he/she seems, who is as charismatic as they are, who meets people so easily, would have other people from their past in their life.
How in demand they are with the opposite sex (but how they have chosen you, because you are special). And most definitely brag of how amazingly skilled they are in bed. If he is almost caught in a lie, he will try to deflect attention from this, and try to make you feel sorry for him.
They will sell themselves to you, like a top notch car salesman selling his cars on the parking lot. He will make you feel how lucky you are to have met someone as amazing as his smooth dazzling self. They play victim Of course, if the only part of his persona that you saw was his ego, it would be quite off putting. It is therefore important to the sociopath to play victim. You will find that often when almost caught he will suddenly be very ill and almost need hospital attention.
He focuses all of his attention on you, and makes you feel like you are the most amazing person that he has ever met in his life. Superficial and glib A sociopath will say just about anything to anyone to get what he wants.
