Your love was intense.

Love with them was probably intense. Your psychopath partner was likely for a long time very passionate, gentle, and caring. But true colors are exposed after some time.

They had a strong hold on you.

Psychopaths often have few qualms about being manipulative. Chances are, you didn't even know how strong of a hold they had on you. But now you do, and it'll be harder to get over it.
