Confirming That Your Date ISN'T Crazy!

Craziness and love are much like oil and water -- they simply don’t mix well. Some crazies just aren’t capable of love, but nothing stops them from tricking you into believing they’re the real deal, and the sad thing is most of these relationships have tragic endings.

If you want to be on top of your game, you need to be able to identify the red flags as soon as they show up. Often, these pseudo-psychos can have great social skills, be charming and funny, and offer a new level of excitement to your life. Their greatest weapon is the ability to seduce your mind, making it easy for them to get exactly what they want from you. Thankfully, we’ve got a list of signs for you to look out for!

Too serious, too soon. Not just applicable to psychopaths, but anyone who wants way too serious too soon, and then gets genuinely upset by your boundaries, should be setting off alarm bells all around.

They have THE most AMAZING stories. Do their stories tend to be just a little too good to be true? They most probably are! The sad truth is almost always that once you start investigating the grandiose stories, things simply don’t line up!

They’re God’s gift to mankind. This makes them a little stingy, unthoughtful about their own footprint, and they tend to be rude to others, just because the world “owes them something.” Crazy people are incapable of feeling compassion or guilt.

A real jerk to people they don’t know. There’s an old saying that says if you want to get to know a person on a deeper level, you should observe the way they treat nature, the poor and the old. It’s all about observing how they treat others.

Charm has become an art form. So he’s a suave, smooth talker or she’s the girl of your dreams? Sound the alarm! These people will use their charm to manipulate you and control the scenario to their advantage, which compensates for an inability to feel genuine warmth. 

Mr. or Ms. ALWAYS Right. Crazies have been known to go into full-blown fits at a mere suggestion that they could be the party that was wrong from the start. They will always insist that they ARE right and that nobody can beat them.

The term “crazy in love” wasn’t just something that popped up out of the blue. Sure, we all need love and to be loved in return, but we also deserve someone sane and in the game of life for the purpose of enjoying the journey – not just someone who wants to use and manipulate you.

These signs obviously don’t stand for much when they are observed on their own, but if you spot more and more of them, take a second to make sure you’re out of crazy territory!
