And that brings me to the point of today's article.
If you find yourself attracted to someone with borderline personality disorder or discover that the person you have been dating suffers from it, here are a few things you can do.
If that's the case then that's the case, however I would feel an immense sadness leaving someone over an illness; I would feel like part of their problem of it being difficult to maintain relationships. then I manipulate & punish, and my dark side comes and takes me over, where I need no one, I don't talk for days, but there are other triggers for me, but I've been in an out of a particular relationship for nearly 10 years now, just over the past 2 years we've started to understand it a little more and more.
watch out for the splitting of the borderline & others, which is basically a powerful black and white thinking coping mechanism, this can be very confusing for both borderline & partner, borderlines can be real loving people, but we need to be shown that we're loved every day, as our minds have a "love amnesia" we know that love exists but we really don't believe in it, it's a tough ride being in a relationship with a borderline my fiancé says but it's what makes me me, hope this helps a little, any questions just ask, I'll try to help as much as I can, but maybe a femail borderline may give a little better insight hi mate, from a male point of view, I don't think anyone can say what not to say, to stop an outburst, as everyone has different triggers, but saying that, abandonment is a biggie for me!
While patients of depression and bipolar disorder tend to feel low for several days, in case of borderline personality disorder the intense mood swings usually last a few hours to a day at the most.
Consider if this is what you really want A relationship with someone with borderline personality disorder is a difficult proposition, even if you are only casually dating him/her.
