The safety and welfare of others does not resonate with a psychopath.
Anderson says a psychopath might also blame his or her partner for relationship problems.
Rather, they aim to twist the law in their favor, and make an effort not to get caught.
De Pompo explains psychopaths often feel the law doesn’t apply to them.
If there’s a chance you’re romantically involved with a psychopath, you’ll want to watch out for these behaviors.
Others may describe them as smooth, engaging, and “all about me.” Real-life example: You voice frustration with your significant other, but they do not want to discuss it. Grohol, founder of Psych Central, notes psychopaths tend to have a difficult time forming emotional attachments.
It is often centered on ways they want to use you for their own benefit,” De Pompo said.
“Remember they do not operate according to your rules, so don’t be shocked when you start becoming alert to the depths of their selfishness.” Real-life example: Your pet died and your partner shows no sorrow or concern for your feelings.
He or she may constantly initiate exciting activities despite a packed schedule and exhausting lifestyle. Robert Schug, a neurocriminologist and clinical psychologist, told Reader’s Digest, “A psychopath’s nervous system is wired so they need to keep doing exciting things to feel normal and reach normal levels of arousal.” Real-life example: Your significant other lies about small things like not doing the dishes or what they bought at the store.
If you see a pattern of frequent lying, this could also be a sign.
