At least I've never accused someone of being less-than-human. No doubt about it: The first time a woman beds down with a guy she’s crazy about is an exciting and special time. Whatever a woman’s decision, we had to wonder: Does the double standard still exist today? They push women for sex, then blame them for having sex.To find out, we grilled three women about the ups and downs of when they get down to business… On the other hand, I also know from personal experience that if a guy is crazy about a girl, and they move really fast, all the rules go out the window.
But did you know that we cross paths with sociopaths on a regular basis — and often don’t even know it? In particular, I like his Pre-Incident Indicators (PINs), which reads like a menu of sociopathic characteristics: So now you have a lead on how to recognize a sociopath, and hopefully red flags will rise when you encounter one. It makes sense if you think about it – without human connection, what else is there?
Some women are happy to get down to business the night they meet; others will wait weeks or months before doing the deed.
In other words, if a woman knocks boots with a guy too soon, does she automatically nix her chances for long-term love—or is that old-fashioned nonsense in today’s modern-day dating scene? They’re particularly stuck on the idea that if a woman hops into bed with them quickly then she must have done this with lots of other men as well. After all, if everyone can have her, she can’t be all that special, can she?
First, shift your Hollywood version of the sociopath or psychopath (the terms are interchangeable) – a cold-blooded serial killer – to the actual definition of a sociopath. In fact, sociopaths have an especially strong fondness for evoking pity. Good people will let pathetic individuals get away with, sometimes literally, murder. Sometimes the more we fear someone, the more we defer to them and offer them respect.
And, once recognized, wouldn’t it be great to know how to deal with one? In her book The Sociopath Next Door, clinical psychologist and former Harvard faculty member Martha Stout, Ph D, gives us a great roadmap for conceptualizing, understanding, and avoiding sociopaths. They use their victim’s goodness and capacity to trust against them. They are masterful at evoking pity and have incredible acting skills.
