Is he dating me out of pity
In the psychopaths mind, everyone else wants him, so you better be on your best behavior, or he will move on to one of his adoring fans. After he sucks you in with idealization, then begins to devalue you, he will suddenly discard you as if you never had a relationship. He will usually move on to another target at this point. "Hoovering." Although a psychopath will discard you, he doesn't quite want you moving on either.
If he senses you are done with him, he will suddenly do an about-face, and begin bombarding you with pleas to stay together.
Theoretically, I feel like this should be easy to do because we’ve been dating a whopping two days, but it feels really hard. Talk to him privately in person (yep, face-to-face human contact) and gently let him know that you would prefer to just remain friends.
I also feel dumb because I am passing up an opportunity with a great guy who will treat me super well just because I’m not attracted to him. You like him and you like hanging out with him, but there really isn’t a spark happening on your end. He deserves a girl who wants to tear all of his goddamn clothes off with her teeth. Now, in order to avoid future mix-ups, hurts and unwanted relationships, let’s do a little exercise here.
Over the course of several months, he developed a romantic interest in me.
Two days ago, completely out of the blue, he asks me if I would consider dating him.
(Those who have children with psychopaths must develop low contact, and keep in touch only as much as absolutely needed as regards the children.) Of course, nobody is perfect, and some people are just immature and go through periods of giving the silent treatment, or "devaluing" you with critical comments.
Other people may triangulate to create jealousy because they're insecure or bored or don't even quite realize they're doing it.
What he's doing is called "mirroring." He has no real identity, so he sucks yours up and mirrors it back to you. Try to check out his stories -- call hospitals if you need to -- but don't be surprised if he has an excuse for why you can't find any record of any of his traumas. Psychopaths are also known to disappear for days at a time.

If you think you're fat, he will tell you how much he loves your body.
If you think you're shy, he will laugh at every lame attempt at a joke and tell you you should have been a comedian. Psychopaths will try to convince you that you are soul mates, just alike.
You might think that's something you'd know right away by the red tint of evil in the person's eyes, the swastika tat on the forehead, or the insistence on discussing serial killers over dinner. Psychopaths can be extremely charming and come across like Prince Charming at first. On the first date, he'll probably tell you that you are stunningly beautiful, unbelievably intelligent, and uproariously witty.
