Antisocial Behavior Gets Worse After 50- New Study Claims-Dating Seniors Beware

In Senior Sociopaths foremost expert on love fraud, Donna Andersen makes clear that sociopaths don’t just mellow and fade into the sunset – which has been the prevailing “wisdom” of psychotherapists – but rather stay strong, deceptive, and destructive well after 50 years of age. Here are some reasons I hope will inspire you to pursue a chat with me or ask for a copy of Donna’s enlightening book – which comes out in May.

Who should read Senior Sociopaths?

  • If you are uneasy about your over-50 romantic partner, but you’re not sure why
  • If your spouse was always difficult, but now, after 50, seems to be getting worse
  • If you’re struggling to determine your obligation to your demanding, critical, parent
  • If a family member, after age 50, is still causing havoc and division among your relatives
  • If an over-50 friend, neighbor, or acquaintance is turning everyone against you
  • If your senior boss or co-worker is threatening your employment or career

The information in this book will help readers realize that sociopaths continue their manipulative, deceptive, and abusive behavior forever, so they are equipped to determine their own path forward.
