Question: Is it weird to be attracted to Psychopaths?
I am a fifteen year old girl, and for the past two years of my life the only people I have been attracted to are Psychopaths. Not just people who are crazy, but full-on Anti-Socail Personality Disorder types, who are incapable of connecting with other humans, or feeling guilt and empathy. And it's not like I jus think they are 'cool' but I actually am attracted to only them.
I have these really bad obsessions with Mass Murderers and Serial Killers and I read books and watch movies about Psychopaths all the time. I can't stop thinking about them. I don't know why, but I just think Psychopaths are really hot. If I had the chance to have sex with a murderer who was a psychopath I would take it immediately. Especially Eric Harris, one of the Columbine shooters, and Anders Breivik, the Norwegian mass murderer (who isn't totally a psychopath, but he comes close).
Does anyone else have this obsession with Psychopaths? Do you have any idea why I would be attracted to them, and not to anyone else?
Well, it's human nature to get pleasure out of harm inflicted on others. Don't tell me you've never laughed at "banana peel falls" or stair falls, or The Three Stooges, or found humor in those things. Comical violence. Or maybe because you can relate to them yourself, the antisocial part. You connect to them. Or maybe you're just a masochist and you're really wanting one of those professionals to hurt you. I dunno.
But I hope this helps. :)
p.s. I -love- Criminal Minds. Maybe you're simply fascinated by what they do. How they say how intelligent serial killers are. What makes them tick. That's why I love the tv show 'Criminal Minds' so much.
Sociopaths (correct term) are magnetic and can be unbelievably absorbing. They are like a facination with snakes. Just because they can be poisonous doesn't make them unappealing.
I let one live with me for 3.5 years, because I adored him so much. He was an adopted son to me. Interestingly they can make you feel safe and wanted and loved. They can make you feel anything if you know them.
You also are naive. They can kill you or slowly take your life from you. We have all met pyromaniacs. Facination with the cold killer type is a psychological need being met.
I would suggest getting to know why you are feeling that way. You are just as interesting. There is a psychological disorder associated with sociopathic obsession.
Just remember they will like you too, until they tire of you which will happen as they don't love and only form temporary attachments. You will be dropped faster than you think. Sometimes they will take you down with them too. Just saying. Be careful for what you want. You may just get it.
I am interested in psychopaths purely from a psychology point of view. Nature or nurture? Were they born that way? that sort of thing.
It isn't normal to be attracted to psychopaths. Are you maybe attracted to the fact that they have so much self-control? Don't live by any moral or social restraints? It could be that you are attracted to their 'qualities' (and I use that term very loosely) as opposed to actually being attracted to them.
You can hang with psychopath s but don't moan if you end up dead or worse, permantley disabled suck as a vegetable in a wheel care.
It happens so stop playing a game that could have irreversible consequence s .
Your 15 so why not think of doing something to help people who need help.
Go and volunteer with kids who have been disabled by abusers , take focus off yourself for a bit and put it on helping other people. Because you may clear your head a bit of all the violence you are fascinated with. It's not healthy and you will suffer later in life if you keep getting high off violence.
Nope, I have the exact same attraction and obsessions :P
