Dating an emotional guy
According to Beatty, emotional manipulators are only concerned about their own needs and wants.If you try to have open and honest conversation about moments when you feel hurt or invalidated, you will be shut down with claims that you are being silly or overeating.He’s may drink too much at the office party, turn on football during your mother’s Thanksgiving dinner and answer his cell phone at your friend’s wedding.Like the four-year-old he resembles, he’ll probably pout if corrected.However, Beatty Cohan, a psychotherapist and author based both in New York and Saraosta, Florida, said there are clear signs your partner is an emotional manipulator, explaining that once you start noticing them, you need to leave the relationship immediately, before it becomes any more toxic.The author of For Better, For Worse, Forever: Discover the Path to Lasting Love explained that people in these types of relationships aren't miserable all of the time; there can be bouts of time when things are going great, and that's when confusion really sets in.'You feel like you are on a roller coaster ride,' Beatty said, noting that 'the earlier you get out, the better' because you'll find yourself in a circular relationship that wears you down and makes you feel bad about yourself.When an emotional psychopath knows they have no excuse, they make one up (all the while making you feel like you're the delusional one).This point looks similar to #1, but trust me when I say it’s different. Emotional psychopaths know they don’t have much going for them so they exert control over their victims in an effort to control the way they think.

My ex-husband was abusive: physically, sexually, and most of all, emotionally.
(Whoever came up with the expression “sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me” obviously lacked any ability to harbor feelings.)In short: my ex was an emotional psychopath — a complete sociopath.
