But on the other, he is the man of your dreams. How did we get here? There are many ways to tackle this question, including how it reflects our ideals of romance in a rapidly changing dating landscape. But they fall in love. Beck realizes too late that Joe is actually a serial killer and she is his next target. Haley Neidich. There are aspects of him that are so likeable and charming and so grounded in reality that we go along with him. As they become closer, we see flashbacks to his childhood that are punctuated by maternal abandonment and parental abuse, recontextualizing what we know about him. The answer to this would probably say more about the individual responding than anything else, especially when we think about it through the lens of the growing destigmatization of mental health.

Joe is not a control freak on the bed and loves his girl to come above him and dominate.
Michelle Newblom , Copy Chief January 15, Kim Nucum. And for anyone not familiar with the show, the first season followed Joe in New York pursuing his love interest Guinevere Beck.
Goldberg's charm is representative of narcissism
Last year, like a lot of people, I was gripped when Netflix released its original series You starring Penn Badgley. Based on books by Caroline Kepnes, the initial series introduces us to Joe Goldberg, a book shop manager in New York who develops an unhealthy obsession with a customer. This obsession leads him to undertake some…very questionable pastimes. So, when season two was released just after Christmas, I was hooked for the second time around. In this piece, I am going to explain just some of the reasons why Joe could have found himself in court throughout both seasons of the show. In the pilot season, he uses the zoom on a camera to watch into the windows of Guinevere Beck, the object of his obsession. In the next season, we see him set up a telescope in his apartment for the very same purpose. This type of watching people without their consent is an offence in England and Wales known as voyeurism and it is protected under s67 of the Sexual Offences Act This crime involves watching, recording or photographing the victim without their knowledge or consent for the purpose of sexual gratification. Such actions are also an invasion of privacy and therefore, Joe could have not only been hit by a voyeurism offence but also a case linked to invasion of privacy.
Joe Goldberg is one of those rare sociopaths who come across as very charming. The reason is the way he carries himself in front of people. He is a master in the skill of manipulating people using his innocent face. This is because he is so clear about his intentions that even when he is committing a serious crime, he is clean in his own mind. Joe had a nightmarish childhood. His father used to beat his mother and hence Joe ended up killing him. Since then he thinks of himself as if he is in the world to protect women. He falls in love with those women who he thinks need his help.
