Yes. Very much like that.

The thing to understand is that psychopaths aren't really human.
There's no "connection" you can make with a psychopath. The mutual bond of essential human-ness you share with another human being doesn't exist with a psychopath, and can't. Another way of putting it is that a psychopath doesn't have a soul.
Psychopaths tend to be extremely good at creating illusions, though, at creating a mask of sanity and humanity.

If your friend is with a psychopath, he will end up damaging or destroying her, financially and psychologically.

There are no happy endings to relationships with psychopaths, and there is nothing, absolutely nothing, she can do to improve the situation other than leave him.
I'm sure your friend is being driven mad by his pointlessly destructive behavior, and hopes that it will stop. But it won't, and it can't.
