Let me start out by saying that I am by no means a forensic psychologist with a degree and years of clinical experience with psychopathy. I am, however, a woman who ran into a really bad dude. I would be remiss if I didn’t admit that during the year I spent with Luc I did see some odd signs – or red flags. Sadly, some of the signs I didn’t pick up on, and others I simply ignored in hopes that things would improve and my son’s father would actually be the man I had hoped he was.
Since starting my blog, I have heard from hundreds of other women who have also run into some really bad dudes. While these men are different guys, and not all are psychopaths, they are all people each one of these women now wishes she had avoided. All of them showed signs, and we all ignored these signs until it was too late. These women are all strong women who have stood up and admitted to having ignored these signs (or completely missed that they were signs at the time), and have shared their stories in an attempt to help other women recognise when its time to RUN. Ladies, I salute your courage and I congratulate you for leaving no matter how long it took.
If you are reading this blog entry and recognize one of the below red flag situations as similar to something that is currently happening to you in your relationship, please take the advice of many women before you – and run.
