Paula Carrasquillo On Dating A Sociopath: It Affected Me 'In A Deeply Emotional And Spiritual Way' (VIDEO)

Dating a sociopath sounds like every woman's worst nightmare. And Paula Carrasquillo, author of "Escaping the Boy: My Life with a Sociopath," is here to tell you that it was.

Joining HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill, Carrasquillo delved into the intimate details of her life and relationship with a sociopath. Not only did her boyfriend "spy" on the calls she made and the texts she sent, but he also threatened her.

"Basically he was threatening me that even if I did get off of his phone plan, he could still find a way to find out what I was doing," she said. "When you're surrounded by someone day in and day out who lacks empathy and lacks a conscience it affects you, the non-pathological person, in a deeply emotional and spiritual way."
