  1. Unfortunately their a bunch of idiots out there, but I will say this there are some scary woman too. I got slapped with a trial for domestic abuse, guess what? I was found not guilty and she was found guilty of falsly claiming that I beat her, so now she has to pay me, literally pay me with money and this crazy nut keeps calling me. The hole thing was a joke, this girl is one of the most manipulative and mean to the bone person i have met encountered. But I was a dummy in this case, plus my economic situation was not good and she did offer a place to stay which I eventaully had to run away from literally after putting her to the ground when she showed up on the door with a knife in her hand. And guess what, she did call the pólice and the pólice called my phone to tell me if I could go back and talk to them. They didn´t believe her, even the one officer told me this girls was a bit off.
    So having found this blog
    In one of her post she described what are the character traits of a narcissist sociopath, damn! I thought, this is exactly that crazy b..tch.
