Dating…AFTER a relationship with a psychopath

Today I went on a “mini date” of sorts (that means we just grabbed coffee in the middle of the day).  Dating as a single mom has proven to be more difficult than I thought.  Up until a few weeks ago, I wasn’t even thinking about dating – ever.  I recently realized, however, that the best…

Family Law: A Psychopaths Playground for Legally Sanctioned Abuse

As a young child, my parents always called me the “party police”.  I was the good girl who never liked to see people breaking the rules.  I never smoked, never drank underage, never did drugs, and never stole anything.  I grew up believing in justice and always believed that the courts and the police would…

Why do we pity the abuser – The Rihanna Interview with Oprah

On Sunday August 19th, I watched Oprah’s interview with the R&B singer Rihanna.  I usually don’t stay awake this late, but last night I made a point to do so because I was intrigued by what Rihanna would say when asked about the abuse she suffered at the hands of Chris Brown.  In case you…

I was “love bombed” by a Psychopath

Today me and baby boy spent the day doing some of our favorite activities.  We went to get crepes for lunch, roamed around the bookstore, and went to a gym class at the baby gym and chased each other around (yes, I know…you know you are a mom when this is your idea of a…

Feeling like a “Relationship Leper” after dating a Psychopath

I recently started dating again.  It’s been over two years since I have been on a date and now I have a child.  (I know this is pathetic, please don’t judge me – I have been traumatized)  Being a single mother (not to mention one with extra ex psychopath drama) makes dating feel like a…

Mourning the man that never was (because he is a psychopath)

  Before I had children, I always dreamed that my children would have a wonderful relationship with both me and their father.   Given the close relationship that I have with my father, I could never have imagined a situation where I would NOT want my child’s father to have access to him/her.  (Until now,…

A letter to my baby boy

I have thought a lot lately about what I will tell my son when he starts to ask me about his father.  Of course, I hope that when that day comes his father is in jail where he belongs.  This jail dream is where I will keep my thoughts for the time being.  I haven’t…

The sociopath’s rape by deception

I’m angry – period.  I am tired of people telling me that I need to “get over it” because Luc is baby boy’s biological father.  In that vein, I guess rape victims should just “get over it” too?  People who have been physically abused should just “get over it”?  If Luc had jumped out of…
