1. The cyberpath keeps the victim unaware of what is going on and what changes are taking place.
cyberpath might make plans for you, or not tell you what his plans are
until the last minute. He may talk about you to others behind your
back, to isolate you from them. They will always leave you on the edge
of your seat about what their next move or even when your next contact
will be. (usually on their terms, not yours)
The cyberpath controls the victim's time and online environment, and
works to suppress much of the victim's old behavior. The victim is
slowly, or abruptly, isolated from all supportive persons/friends/net
buddies except the cyberpath.
cyberpath might have insisted that you stop certain social, hobby, or
work activities. Your chats may have moved to a more "private" or one
on one forum and they insist you NOT
tell others about you & them or include anyone else in your chats.
If you do, be suspicious the cyberpath might be working on THEM behind
your back as well. You may have been asked (or told) to reduce or stop
contact with specific supportive people in your life.
cyberpath creates in the victim a sense of powerlessness, fear, and
dependency. Usually by providing unparalleled attention, support and
understanding in the beginning and then SLOWLY over time withdrawing it
and systematically replacing it with their real 'agenda.'
Verbal and emotional abuse and manipulation creates these emotions, and they become stronger and stronger over time.
4. The cyberpath works to instill new behavior and attitudes in the victim.
online predator trains to you behave in ways that he wants you to
behave. He gradually makes you feel differently about yourself, and
erodes your confidence in yourself. They make you feel that everything
you do, say or think - revolves around the cyberpath.
5. The cyberpath puts forth a closed system of logic, and allows no real input or criticism.
In other words -- What he says, goes........
