Can a Sociopath or Narcissist Truly Love?

From the I am unsure if my partner is a sociopath or narcissist. Many of the mentioned attributes are cross-covered by their behavioural patterns, which I am only starting to catch onto. (Actually, I have probably always noticed them, but believed that I could change and help them with unconditional love -naïve I know)…. So, while I know that I cannot broach the subject with them, nor even if they were to enter...

Could a 36-Year-Old Person Stay Mentally Normal without Sex?

We have been dating for four months now and have been able to visit...

I have had school anxiety for my whole life, but in the past year it has escalated to a point where I can no longer attend. I’ve done medication, therapy, and now I’m in an outpatient program in replacement of school (for a few weeks.)

What type of psychologist, counselor, therapist should a single woman who can never open up and communicated her feelings in a relationship see? I have tried Googling this and my search isn’t producing results that apply at all. Thank you in advance for your help! A: I appreciate you reaching out and asking.

Sister Uses Me as a Therapist and It’s Making Me Need One

I field hundreds of calls and texts her....

Her emotions and...

So I am wondering...
