You might think that's something you'd know right away by the red tint of evil in the person's eyes, the swastika tat on the forehead, or the insistence on discussing serial killers over dinner. Psychopaths can be extremely charming and come across like Prince Charming at first. On the first date, he'll probably tell you that you are stunningly beautiful, unbelievably intelligent, and uproariously witty.So unless you know the signs, you'd probably get sucked into the life of a psychopath and not know who he or she really was until you are completely sucker punched. He will play into every fantasy and insecurity you have.That's why we understand each other." If there's an obscure book you love, he will make sure he loves it too. Pay careful attention to what a psychopath says on the first few dates about his exes and other people in his life. Does he break his foot on your second date and has to cancel? ) Did he lose his first wife in a car accident that left him with brain trauma (yet he talks fine and seems fine)?

He doesn't even have the common courtesy to reschedule when it's most convenient for you.

Should people who behave badly be "outed" publicly?
Some even stay in bad relationships because they're afraid of not having someone, but being alone is far better than dating a person who doesn't value you.
