Unfortunately, there are evil people in the world who just do not have the same moral values as the rest of us, and they take great pleasure in trapping people in relationships to feed their ego and sometimes, even to abuse them.
Fortunately, there are ways that you can tell if the person you are dating is evil.
Here are 16 signs that you’re dating an evil person:
1. They’re control freaks.
That means they not only have their own lives entirely in order, but they also work hard to get yours in order too. It may be subtle or more obvious, but if you’re dating an evil person, they will try to control you.
2. They enjoy the pain of others.
This is more than laughing at a video of someone falling off of their skateboard while attempting a dangerous trick. An evil person will genuinely enjoy seeing others in physical, emotional, or mental pain.
3. They constantly tell lies.
Big or small, an evil person will lie all the time. Although most people will sometimes lie, a clear sign of someone who is truly evil is that they lie out of habit rather than out of a desire to protect themselves or someone else.
4. They will mislead you.
They might tell you that they want to take you out to eat, but then you may find yourself at their place with take-out. An evil person usually misleads you because they are trying to control you and because they’re not afraid to lie to you.
5. You feel uncomfortable around them.
If your gut is telling you that there’s something wrong with a person even when their actions aren’t reflecting it, trust it. Your instincts are probably right about staying away from them.
6. They’re cruel.
The evil within a person is going to spill over onto others around them, and it often happens in the form of cruelty. You may see them speaking harshly to a family member or friend, or it may be you they lash out at.
7. They have no remorse.
No matter how many lies an evil person tells or how badly they hurt others through their cruelty, they will never show genuine remorse. This is because they are not capable of feeling remorse.
8. Somebody warns you about them.
If anybody that knows them tells you to be careful or to stay away from them, listen. This is especially true if it’s someone that doesn’t know you well, so you know they’re not doing it because they’re overprotective of you.
9. They refuse to take responsibility for their actions.
An evil person will always blame other people around them for their mistakes and problems. If you’re late to something because they took too long to get ready, they will still blame you.
10. They’re sexist, racist, or homophobic.
When someone hates an entire group of people for no reason, then they are most likely an evil person. Rather than judging individuals based on their actions, an evil person will hate an entire group of people whether or not they have a reason.
11. They change depending on who they’re with.
An evil person wears many masks because they want to be liked by whoever they’re with. They will often completely change the way they act when they’re around people from work, their families, their friends, and you.
12. They disappear when you need them most.
Evil people don’t care about you when you’re having a bad day or need a shoulder to cry on. Although they expect you to be there to support them when they need you, they will vanish when you need them.
13. They belittle others.
Evil people thrive on feeling better than everyone around them, so they love to tear others down by belittling them. You may be the most frequent victim of their snide comments and criticisms, or you may notice they do it more to other people.
14. They create conflict and confusion.
When you’re dating an evil person, you will often find that they intentionally create conflict in your relationship. You will also often find yourself confused about where you stand and what they expect from you.
15. They will manipulate you.
This is harder to see at the moment, but the more you analyze them, the more you will see how they work to get you to do what they want. Evil people are great at manipulating and only care about their own needs and desires.
16. They break boundaries.
If you’ve laid out boundaries in your relationship, and an evil person just won’t care, and they will break them. Often, they do it little by little so you don’t realize it, but other times they will do it blatantly because they feel like they can get away with it.
If you believe that you’re in a relationship with an evil relationship, get out as soon as you can. In most cases, evil relationships become abusive and are not healthy at any rate. If you need help getting out of a relationship, tell a close friend and family member and ask them to help.
