Sociopaths in literature: Dangerous Liaisons

I shall have this woman; I shall carry her away from the husband who profanes her; I shall even dare to ravish her from the God she adores. What a delicious pleasure to be alternately the cause and the conqueror of her remorse! Far be it from me to wish to destroy the prejudices which torture her! They will add to my happiness and my fame. Let her believe in virture, but let her sacrifice it to me; let her slips terrify her without restraining her; let her be agitated by a thousand terrors and not be able to forget and to crush them save in my arms. Then I agree, she may say “I adore you,” and she alone among all women will be worthy to say so. I shall indeed be the God she has preferred.

-- Valmont, Dangerous Liaisons

  2. spelled virtue wrong.
    there's nothing so pathetic as being caught up in what someone else thinks or feels about you.
    To need the woman's emotional reaction is pathetic, to revel in it is equally pathetic and infantile.

    1. I'll definitely have to agree here.

      It's funny how they like to seem all hard about it, the truth is that, deep down inside... they're really mamas boys.

      '...she may say “I adore you,” and she alone among all women will be worthy to say so. I shall indeed be the God she has preferred.'

      Seems like the makings of a really codependant relationship.

    2. 'What a delicious pleasure to be
      alternately the cause
      and the conqueror of
      her remorse!'

      So here he keeps playing the pity card.

      This will only result in a relationship completely devoid of love.

      I can only imagine the tremendous emotional strain this must have, I'm just imagining this situation... I feel sorry for anyone who encounters the likes of these.

      Sadness and despair incarnate.

  3. Yo anonymous, re-read it.

    “What a delicious pleasure to be alternately the cause and the conqueror of her remorse.”

    That’s about manipulating someone into feeling sorry for you, cause and conquer. It’s followed by…

    “They will add to my happiness and my fame.”

    This leans toward him doing it to gain notoriety. It’s not for her gain, his.

    This entire passage wasn't about being caught up in what someone thinks about you, nor was it about needing a woman's emotional reaction…it was about mind games and using another for your own gain and amusement.

    1. amen. i was married to this sociopath for7 yeARS(1 month too many)and honestly...the living hell i live daily since i have left and the abuse my son whom he adopted has to endure as he is a target child is absolutely more than i can take. In Randy's psychotic mind....it is always a mind game. He is incapable of empathy...and that's the truth and not a cut down of character. i stayed and killed myself trying for far toooooooooooo looonnngggg!!!!!!!!!!!!Randy is beyond crazy sick and is absolutely escaping the court system becuz of his lying abilities. i am utterly beside myself.

  4. I forgot to mention the overall goal—corruption of one by the act of another.

  5. Anonymous is an idiot. There's nothing pathetic about accomplishing your goals, so long as they're your own. I don't care if your goal is to eat a leper's shit, if you do it... kudos! You're living the dream.

  6. That is the single greatest bash I have ever read, kudos to you Peter!

  7. the sociopath i was with for 7 years used to be obsessed with valmont and watched this movie to practise being him...sad boring git lol

    so got out when i did. and i never thanked him for inadvertently making me so strong and so impervious to the dull blitherings of any other socios.

    how strange that the name 'JAZON' is the captcha i must type in.

    how strange indeed

  8. might i add

    "VANITY AND HAPPINESS ARE INCOMPATIBLE"

    NOT good news for the sociopath lol


    at least it was wonderful to see my ex lay down weeping his pretend tears and tearing out his actual hair as this was the sole reason for my departure.

  9. There are so many jilted lovers that come onto this sight talking about "sociopath" boyfriends they themselves have diagnosed without any professional help while in an intensely emotional state that it would be optimistic to assume anything over half of the individuals in question are true sociopaths.

    It's actually kind of hilarious when you consider the possibility, ney probability, that many of the "evil" boyfriends were in fact feeling all the emotions their poor, victimized girlfriends threw back in their faces. For the record, I've never met a sociopath in my life that would cry like a baby and pull out tufts of hair just to prove a point; this is especially true if his main source of pride and self worth had been vanity. (He's probably a narcissist who deceives everyone within his small sphere of influence, including himself.)

    He no doubt has many deeply rooted and complex psychological issues, which your actions have probably made much worse, but the inability to love or feel remorse don't seem to number amongst them.

    It's always fascinated me how easily "normal" people can dehumanize those that cause them some form of discomfort, and proceed to act against them without even the restraint of cool intelligence. Did I say I found it fascinating? I meant pathetic.

    1. Hey Monica!!!! I got something accomplished today!!!!!


      I went to the methadone clinic to take the "take home class" which basically tells you all of the rules of having take homes, how to store them, ETC.

      Since I quit weed I had 2 clean drug tests in a row so they are going tpo start me on Phase 1 and I will get to take home 1 bottle of methadone a week instead of having to go everyday now I can go 6 days a week!!!!

      Then every 90 days they put you up another phase and you get another take home, ETC until you get to phase 27 and only have to come in every 4 weeks :)


      How are you today Monica?

      Delete
    2. Congratulations, Rich. You have made a LOT of progress since you came here! @@@@@

    3. Thanks Monica!!! I love SW!!!!!!

      Even my counselor at the methadone clinic and my mom are proud of me!!!! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :)

    1. This week, each of you has a homework assignment. You're going to go out and start a fight with a total stranger. You're going to start a fight... and you're going to lose.

    6. Let it out Monica! Express your anger.

    7. Like, don't you sometimes think that you could hit someone really hard in the face and then walk away?

      Delete
    8. What I am saying, Rembrant, is that the way to heal is to let out who you are to others( people who have your best interests at heart and who have a little wisdom) That will give you a reality check about yourself. We, all, need that, every single person.

      To answer your question. I want to hit many people really hard in the face. In fact, I want to attack them with a claw hammer, but I don't because I force my reason to prevail and doing that will get me locked up. That would make many jerks who hate me, happy, so why give them the satisfaction :D

      Delete
    9. I don't know Monica, it's hard to me to be honest about myself to others.

      Delete
    10. Rembrant, what I do on, here, is to really show who I am. This is the true person I am. As I force myself to really show who I am, I get stronger in my real life. My goal is to be who I am, in my real life, as well as on here.

      The internet can help you have a place to show people who you are, that is safer than real life. Then, you can translate it to real life, if you live long enough ~

  17. Rembrant, I see a lot of withdrawn remarks. Are you getting paranoid? Missed whatever you said, so clueless what you are going through. Hope you are ok.

    2. I noticed that people were actually worried and weren't like "who gives a crap". and so I thought this would be a little too much to mention. It's not like it's a fucking tragedy. xd

  18. What do you guys think:

    If this really hot girl was your stepsister. Would you do her?

    It's not you're blood and there's a risk of genetic mutations.

    1. I mean, would someone? Any of you?

    2. i once seduced the doghter of my stephmom (she's a gire from a previous relationship)
      it was the right amount of kinky

      Delete
    3. Well, why is there a risk of genetic mutations if you are not blood related?

      In my opinion, you dating your hot stepsister, is no worse than your mother/father dating your stepfather/stepmother ;)

      If your not blood related, get correlated!!!!! LMAO! (I just made that up)!!!

      Delete
    4. Also, if you arent gonna date her and just have sex, than nobody really needs to know about it ;)

      It can be kept a secret behind closed doors, but if your in a relationship it wouldnt/coulnd be kept a secret, at least not for long.

      Delete
    5. Yeah man, I totally see it the same way.

      Delete
    6. :-) Yeah me too, it's just like dating anybody else, the only difference is that your parents are also dating, as long as ur not blood related it's fine in my book and if it's just sex than its even easier,because nobody has to know about it, as opposed to an out in the open relationship.

      Delete
    7. clearly. also i found out that we're all pretty much related somehow through blood. Like if you marry a girl from your hometown, there's pretty much a chance that you have a common relative that's also lived in that community.

      Like, tribes had 50 people each and they multiplied, back when there were no morals...

      Delete
    8. Yeah, alot of small towns in places like Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia are like that still. I know people from this one town in Kentucky, and alot of people have the same last names.......

      One guy even made a joke about it, he moved there from out of state and he said " It's crazy here, there are like 4 last names in this entire town" AND IT IS TRUE!!!!! LOL!

      If women arent blood relatives, no matter who they are, I think they are fair game :)

      You go Rembrandt!!!! Iam rooting for you all the way ;)

  26. There was a glass ceiling and you better not go above it. Bells would go off. Whistles would scream. Water would open up from buckets, secured in the ceiling and drench you. You KNEW your place or someone would show you, and good. You don't think you are uppity, do you?

  27. Kill the person when he is alive and see what you have. He drags the Black Lagoon. Just kick him, one time. He was fucking hollow. Don't you see that? Who can't tumble over the walking dead with a fingernail. Next?
