Signs you are dating someone with borderline personality disorder
It is this intense way she has of bearing down on you emotionally that can feel very seductive.
People with BPD often have tumultuous relationships, with extreme highs and lows.According to an article from Clearview Women's Center, "The symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder are varied and complex, but the common thread is that everyday life feels impossible to deal with.For people with BPD, it can be difficult to sustain relationships, maintain a healthy self-image and manage anger."The article also identifies a tendency to engage in damaging behaviors, including substance abuse and self-harm.This might increase if you do not emotionally respond to them; that is, if you do not hop on their emotional rollercoaster and get upset as well.One way to help control their extreme behavior is to learn your own boundaries.
Though it's not an extremely common disorder, it’s found in approximately 3.2 million adults in the United States alone, primarily young women.
