Blog entry

David exhibits some sociopathic traits, but does not seem to meet criteria for Antisocial Personality Disorder. Might we describe his apparent affinity for teenage girls as an addiction, or is there a clue that Jenny may have been younger than his usual affair? For Pedophilia sex seems to play a relatively minor role in his interest in her, criteria do seem to be met. From what little we know it seems to go beyond triangulation, but we know almost nothing about his marriage.
