A woman who is a diagnosed sociopath has shared a video on TikTok, explaining to her followers what it's like to date her.
Kanika has since been praised for opening up on her dating life and raising awareness over the condition.
The model, author and mental health advocate has been diagnosed with ASPD - also known as anti-social personality disorder - which the NHS explains is 'a particularly challenging type of personality disorder characterised by impulsive, irresponsible and often criminal behaviour.'
"Someone with antisocial personality disorder will typically be manipulative, deceitful and reckless, and will not care for other people's feelings."
The NHS explains that the disorder is on a spectrum, meaning it can range in severity.
In her video, Kanika explained that she dates both men and women - but dates them 'very differently' - and is picky over who she gives her time to.
"Status and money don't do anything for me I go purely on looks," she said.
"In the early stages of dating a man if there's no stimulating conversation he will be ghosted or blocked and deleted. Games don't work on me, I like a man to pursue me properly."
Kanika explains that she's a lot kinder and softer with women, because she can relate to them more.
"I treat women with a lot of respect because I know what they've been through," she said.
"I like to take the dominant role in courting and paying for things. I love-bomb intensely and I'm very enthusiastic.
"This is why when I discard, I get a lot of stalkers."
Kanika ended the video by revealing her celebrity crush, adding: "Let me just add that I would sell my soul for a date with Madison Beer."
Followers on TikTok were quick to praise Kanika for the video, with many thanking her for raising awareness.
One person wrote: "Thank you for spreading this awareness! i had no idea what it was like until i found your page!"
While another commented: "Well thank you for fitting us into your time to teach us that it's great to spread this so people can understand how you are feeling."
And a third added: "Keeping going, sister!!! This is so helpful!"
A fourth wrote: "I love the awareness you are bringing to your diagnosis."
