  7. Wow, this is exactly how the sociopath I’ve been dealing with has done me, ignoring me for days no calls no nothing & when ever I try to get clarification he changes the subject or blows me off by phone, or ends text quick or no answers, honestly I felt a lot of pressure as if I needed to do something to make it better, anyhow I’m glad I’ve come across this blog or else I would have been going crazy deeper & deeper, I’ve blocked his number 2 days ago, don’t want to talk to him at all because he is smooth talker, I’m done thanks too all this info people would think I was crazy unless they’ve gone thru this. Thanks so much..
