Recently, I have been speaking to some people about my ex, people that have been talking to him in a legal capacity with regards to the children. Contact is a no no as far as I am concerned.
Anyway, one guy came to ask me a few questions and said he had met my ex and found him to be "an extremely odd fellow" and said he was compliant to the point of it being absolutely ridiculous in the few hours he was with him and also that he had stated quite coldly and matter of fact that he was "very emotionally manipulative."
Why do you say that to someone unless you're hoping to use that to manipulate them in some way?? Also, the man that came to see me said he absolutely agreed with that based on what I had told him and the various results of personality tests he had had done. Personality tests? Why was this information not shared with me since I have to contest contact? Apparently these personality tests showed someone who is emotionally manipulative to the extreme and very skilled at it, devoid of empathy, narcissistic and from what he was saying, at the very least a borderline psychopath. Yay! And I should have to potentially defend my right to keep my children away from this man? What the hell?!
