Haven't seen any evidence of twattishness there. PS - not used to 'mericans using a British term like twat. Next you'll be talking about plonkers. And using the wank word. :congrats:

Hee hee! Love the British slang! What's "plonkers?"

I read a book called "The Sociopath Next Door" by Martha Stout which helps give some clues to picking out the really bad apples.

Plonker is someone clumsy, not very bright, unsuccessful. More polite than wanker.

I must have a read of the Sociopath Next Door myself, it keeps on cropping up in articles and magazines.

AHA!!!!! yes yes yes - after psycho ex boyfriend this book was recommended to me by a friend who is a counselor (after I told her the whole story she said she thought he was "borderline personality disorder with sociopathic tendencies - yikes!)

anyway - great book - small and mostly easy to read - but a bit frightening in some aspects - but defo a must read if you ask me

So... being a man, I am only familiar with crazy ex-women. How crazy are ex-men, and I have not read this whole thread, so if I missed it I apologize.

This is a British crazy guy? Are they worse than the U.S. crazies? Crazy with a funny accent?

Crazy ex is crazy ex. I think females run a bit more to the borderline personality disorder kind of crazy, and men to the sociopath kind of crazy, but that could be nothing more than me gender-stereotyping. One in twenty-five people have no conscience and no empathy....I think maybe some of us have dated some of them, yes?

What does "borderline personality disorder" actually mean? That's something I've struggled with understanding somehow. Are there particular characteristics to look out for?

TWAT is Technical Women's Alert Team over here. Yes, it is an acronym.
