Psychopaths engage in a game-like hunt or pursuit of the individuals they momentarily desire, hyperfocusing on them like predators upon their prey.That’s also why they commonly engage in cyberstalking and stalking, both before and after a relationship is over.Victims must also be able to look within in order to recognize some of the qualities and patterns of behavior that left them vulnerable to psychopathic seduction in the first place, so that it won’t happen again.This process isn’t about assuming responsibility for all the evil things the psychopaths did, which are unjustifiable and inexcusable.Insight and introspection are especially important for victims of psychopaths.
Psychopaths are extremely dangerous because they lack a heart and conscience but they camouflage that fundamental lack so well.
Love bombing is a process commonly used by cults, such as the Moonies, in the initial phases of attracting new members.
It’s highly effective for cults–that are often run by psychopathic leaders–and it works just as well for individual psychopathic seducers.
Few people are likely to tell you you’re the smartest, most attractive, most accomplished person in the world: first of all because you’re not; secondly because it’s rare to encounter another human being who appreciates you so completely.
During the luring or idealization phase, therefore, psychopaths often set themselves apart from other people you’ve dated or befriended through a wooing and romancing that borders on worship.
