Emotional Abuse in the Age of Social Media. – The Method – Medium

What is grooming? Grooming is an insidious predatory tactic utilized by abusers. Grooming is practiced by narcissists, antisocial predators, con-artists and sexual aggressors (including pedophiles), who target and manipulate vulnerable people for exploitation. So, what does this mean? Well, I’ll explain here:

A predator will identify and engage a victim and work to gain the target’s trust, break down defenses, and manipulate the victim until they get whatever it is they are after. Overt attention, verbal seduction (flattery / ego stroking), recruitment, physical isolation, charming, gift-giving, normalizing, gaslighting, secrecy, and threatening are all the hallmarks of grooming.
