It's pretty elaborate if he is trying to gaslight me. He's told me he has been in and out of the station today. Just strange. However, I did notice that when I sent him the second text asking if he meant to text me he seemed to be at the station only moments later. Very strange.

He may very well be at the police station, and I am concerned for his mental health.

I do believe he has SOME sort of disorder. What, I am not 100% sure but I can see aspects of many in him. Year or so ago we were at a comedy club and I put my hand on his head laughing at some joke having a great time not thinking anything.

Immediately I heard "you're a ****ing ***** for doing that to me"

Then cue hours and hours of being verbally berated. He believed I did this in response to a joke about a small penis, and was making a mockery of him.
Then it sounds like he has narcissistic personality disorder to me. Folks diagnosed with it aren't comfortable with their ego hurt either. You tried to flirt with him and he called you names, very saddening. You should steer clear of him.

Don't be concerned for him if he isn't quite concerned with you. No matter how much you are attached. You may just end up damaging yourself. Find another partner, contact your doctor and the police.

I actually just got some text messages from him again that all just appear to be backlogged messages from prior conversations. I don't doubt he's at the police station, but I doubt he is being hacked. His provider may just have some sort of bug.

Also for the last hour or so you're online viewing this thread. It makes me think you're too much attached to him. Look, things aren't always as they seem to be.


I am just an internet stranger and I know you won't take this as seriously as the years you've spent with him, but it's my duty to tell you that.


1) He may be a manipulative narcissist who wants nothing but profit from you, the profit may be psychological, physical or materials.


OR


2) On the other side, he may have just had a bad childhood and is impulsive. But it doesn't seem like psychosis to me.


If he is indeed innocent, I still don't suggest you to get back together with him unless you've read (I do not know whether it is legal or not) his psychological evaluation and asked his psychologist if he has good intentions or not.


I am not much into the legal stuff so I do not know whether it is legal or not, but I still suggested that.

That's very plausible to say at least. Which platform I may ask? (Chat platform I am asking for.) Okay if you think it's confidential.


Do not over worry about text messages. They may or may not come, but it's you, the end, who is more important the mean or the sender.

It's google. So it's possible there is just some sort of bug...he goes right to thinking he has been hacked etc.


I have fiddled with the idea of Narc personality disorder for him. He can be a very sweet, kind, and loving individual. He had/has quite a few female friends. One of which actually broke a part of my car and wrote me a letter about how I was "blowing" a relationship with such a great guy with my antics. Unless you get really under the surface of his behaviors he seems absolutely wonderful.

I have read it is common for narcs to have followers who don't know the extent of their disorder that can gang up on the victim.

Default Re: Did I cause a psychotic break?

Thank you. I really myself needed that. (Can't stop laughing.)


Do you think he is under stress always, has extreme emotions sometimes, is lost in day dreams, is detached from his surroundings, etc. etc.? Anything that might make him mentally ill? Any evidence? Please do not go over extents such as using the internet for hours for him and constantly checking his messages. They (his messages, him) are NOT important as important to you as you are to yourself.

After all, it you who matter yourself most. I suggest you to talk to him about your relationship.
