Having love and a special person to go through life with is important and desired by most emotionally healthy human beings. That’s why it’s vital that our intimate partner is safe, moral, and capable of caring. However, this tends to be a problem for those who find themselves in psychopathic or narcissistic relationships.

Due to their condition, they cannot genuinely relate well to others, particularly in intimate relationships. Their emotional disorder simply prevents this.

Let’s take a look at a few basics –

Nine important elements that are crucial to an intimate relationship will be missing with a psychopathic partner.

1) Empathy

2) Bonding

3) Appreciation

4) Trust & Honesty

5) Moral Reasoning & Care based morality

6) Respect & Boundaries

7) Emotional regulation

8) Accountability

9) Impulse control

Intimate relationships lacking the above elements tend to fail. Without access to such emotional states, partners of psychopaths will not be emotionally safe.

Regardless of how kind, cooperative, loyal, or trustworthy the non-psychopathic partner may be, she will be unable to establish a real bond and genuine connection with a psychopathic mate. How could it be possible?

Individuals with psychopathy do not value or consider the emotions of their partner important. They value self only. Rather than love their partners, they tend to treat them like possessions or objects.
