Dating and Relationship Advice – 5 Signs You’re Dating an Emotional Psycho

When a relationship ends, we begin to analyze what happened and look for the true cause of the breakup. It’s hard to understand immediately whether it was just a coincidence or an emotional outburst.

We wants to help you recognize people who behave suspiciously. There are 5 types of behavior that characterize an emotional psycho.

1. They always blame you if there are difficulties in the relationship.

Don’t think they’re stupid and don’t understand anything. On the contrary, they know this is their fault, but their nature simply doesn’t allow them to admit their mistake. They seek to make you think that whatever bad is going on, you’re always the only one to blame.

2. They’re constantly lying to make you feel bad.

Speaking of lies, it’s worth focusing on the fact that a person will lie not only on some global topics — they’re able to deceive out of nowhere. From this position, they absolutely don’t care about your feelings, and they don’t even realize what they’re doing.

3. They blame you for the fact they’re unable to achieve something in life.

This person is mentally ill. They believe everyone around them is guilty for their failures. As mentioned above, your feelings aren’t important to them. They’ll repeat the same thing over and over again: “It’s because of you I cannot achieve my goals.”

4. They diminish your dignity by all means.

To a person like this, you mean exactly as much as a dusty remote control. They found a perfect person who has warm feelings for them, and they control you to satisfy their petty needs. There can be no mutual feelings at all.

5. They forbid you to communicate with other people.

Being with such a person, it’s almost impossible to ask for help. By limiting communications with the world around you, they bind you to them forever by making you feel sure you can survive in this world only by staying with them.

It’s better to stay away from people who behave like this because they can take away the most precious thing you have: your life.

      1. Well, if you ask: unless I missed something in your posts (I do read them regularly and thoroughly), another manipulative trait is facilitating co-dependency. For example, a non-chalantly dropped “this needs to be done” prompts a loving woman to jump to it. Why should she do it? To win his approval, of course. Instead, what she earns is “And who told you to do it? You volunteered, and did it all wrong. I don’t want it anyway.” Thus responsibility turns into blame. The trick is to ask: who will do it, you or me? If you want me to do it, all you have to do is ask, directly and politely.

      2. My pleasure! For a change, something good came out of Philly – how can I miss it! Please don’t take offense; my 4 years in Northeast Philly were not the best of my life.

      3. Agreed regarding NYC, although having a good time there for a few days is always an attraction. I didn’t think that Philly was hard; it was simply cold and wet, and it would take me an entire hot and wet summer to get over the cold and wet winter.
        Keep publishing good stuff, my friend, and we’ll connect often.

  1. Wow, what a coincidence. I Just recently broke off a relationship with a man that presented with all five of the above mentioned signs. He was/is also a narcissistic sociopath that was/is a master of hiding it when you first meet him. He was such a miserable person that seemed to be hell bent on making sure my life was equally as miserable. His intentions eventually became transparent, allowing me to see right though his vicious put downs, incessant brow-beating, blatant lies, and false accusations. In the bitter end, He FAILED and I prevailed.

    Boy, I really could have used the educational advice in your blog some months ago. Had I known then what I know now, maybe, just maybe, I could have avoided Capt. Toxic-Jerk altogether. Therefore, at the same time, completely avoiding the total waste of a whole year of my life. Oh well… hind sight is 20/20. I’m not going to beat myself up by saying, “should have, could have, would have”. I’m going to roll with the punches and I am going to jump up swinging.

    As painful as it was, I look back on the whole thing as an invaluable learning experience that inevitably made me a little smarter, a little wiser, and a lot stronger. I will know better next time.

    BTW… your blog is dead-on accurate.

    1. I’m sorry you had to go through that. I’ve been with some really toxic people too.
      But we learn from this and we move forward with a better perspective. I’ll keep writing and bringing what I can to the table. I appreciate your words and support!
