Since we're on the subject of recommending videos and books, I like to recommend a book which I recently read and which has helped me understand a great deal about what I went through while being romantically involved and later married to a psychopath. I have read a few books on the subject. and while they were all very useful for understanding the mind of the psychopath (assuming that's humanly possible), none has helped me to understand the ordeal I went through like this book because unlike other books that I read, it focuses on how psychopaths treat romantic relationships. Reading this book was a true eye-opener for me because as bizarre as I thought my relationship with my ex psychopath had been, according to this book it was actually quite typical. As it turns out, all the demeaning talk about her ex-husband, her "love-bombing", i.e. her over-the-top adulation and declarations of love (such as calling me a her soul-mate when eh hardly knew me and telling me that I was the first person she could fall in love with), the psychological warfare that followed nearly overnight, the endless cycle of frequent arguments followed by moments of tenderness, the callous way in which she broke up with me, and her post-breakup smear-campaign simply followed a psychopath's well-known playbook according to this book. I was stunned to read that it had all been documented!
