    Beware the man with no female friends | Johanna Leggatt

    Read this article, and I find it a big presumptuous, the author also mentions Mike Pence's standards when being in the same room with another woman other than his wife is bit off putting...and a single man with the same attitude is also off-putting.

    So, is not having any female friends a sign of sociopathy?

    Yes, women find it off-putting. They like men w/ high social status (popularity).
    No, it's not a sign of sociopathy. Lots of men have to work w/ the card they're dealt.

    Not if it pertains to your sanctification.
    1 Thessalonians 4:3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God.

    Are you striving to so attain?
    1 Corinthians 7:37 Nevertheless, he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own will, and is so determined in his heart that he will keep his virgin, does well.

    There is a time and season for all things.
    Abide in the place you are until the Lord moves.

    Sounds like passive-aggressive social engineering to me. Trying to paint Christians and Conservatives as bad people, likely for mere political reasons.
    Wanting to avoid temptation and avoid the appearance of evil has no relation to having female friends. And it likely upsets political radicals because it gives them no opportunity to fabricate sexual misconduct accusations against these people.

    Nope. Not having friends of the opposite sex doesn't make you a sociopath, and having them doesn't mean you aren't one.

    According to WebMD signs of sociopathy include:
    • Lack of empathy for others
    • Impulsive behavior
    • Attempting to control others with threats or aggression
    • Using intelligence, charm, or charisma to manipulate others
    • Not learning from mistakes or punishment
    • Lying for personal gain
    • Showing a tendency to physical violence and fights
    • Generally superficial relationships
    • Sometimes, stealing or committing other crimes
    • Threatening suicide to manipulate without intention to act
    • Sometimes, abusing drugs or alcohol
    • Trouble with responsibilities such as a job, paying bills, etc.
