15 Signs Your Partner is a Psychopath

Kimberly Love

Movies are filled with characters that too many would make the ideal partner. For some of us it is the girl next door; soft spoken, maybe a little nerdy, but ultimately beautiful, funny, quirky, and just perfect. Or maybe you prefer the hero type; the captain of the football team, who despite being so popular, has a heart of gold and surprises everyone after throwing the game winning touchdown and decides to kiss you instead of the head cheerleader. It could be the funny one, the misunderstood one, the rebel, or any number of movie cliches that have made their way into our psyche and have created these ideas of what our perfect partner would be. And while everyone has their own preferences and no shortage of options to choose from, it isn’t often that a young boy or girl watches a movie that features a psychopath and thinks to themselves “now that is the perfect partner,” however, for at least a few of you reading this, that may be more akin to reality than you think.

According to available statistics, as much as 5 percent of the population possess psychopathic tendencies, however, there are many common misconceptions about them. Instead of being the axe wielding, child stealing and water supply poisoning people we see on the screen, they are usually lawyers, CEOs, police officers and salespeople. Psychopathy is one of the most difficult disorders to spot, as often these men and women can be incredibly charming on the surface, however, underneath they lack empathy, often making them manipulative, volatile, and in some cases, dangerous.

We see them on TV, they sign our paychecks and they may even have slept next to you last night. But how would you know? Well, the first step is knowing what to be on the lookout for, and we are here to provide you with some of the most common signs that your partner may be a psychopath.
