Do you know how to tell when love is a con? Donna Andersen
explains the warning signs of love fraud in her new book:

Red Flags of Love Fraud — 10 signs you're dating a sociopath
By Donna Andersen, author of Lovefraud.com

Yes, this is an issue for boomers. Lovefraud.com gets 50,000 unique visitors a month, and most, by far, are boomers.

When it comes to relationships, everyone has issues, but some people have more than issues—they have personality disorders.

Donna Andersen explains how to spot the true problem partners in her new book, "Red
Flags of Love Fraud — 10 signs you're dating a sociopath."

She'll tell us that no, sociopaths are not all deranged serial killers. But they are social predators—both male and female—
who live their lives by exploiting people, and some of their favorite targets are unsuspecting romantic partners.

So what are the danger signs?

1. Charisma and charm.
2. Sudden soul mates.
3. Sexual magnetism.
4. Love bombing.
5. Blames others for everything.
6. Lies and gaps in the story.
7. Intense eye contact.
8. Moves fast to hook up.
9. Pity play.
10. Jekyll and Hyde personality.

Donna explains how these social predators act in real life, why they are the way they are, and the three steps you can take to protect yourself from relationship disaster.
