Dating a woman with borderline personality disorder

20 Apr

Say you swiped right on a hot guy (or lady) on Tinder, and the two of you match.You start talking, realize you have a few things in common, exchange numbers, talk for a few days and finally arrange to meet in person.Initially, your BPD partner will place you on a pedestal until you come to believe you are as special as you are being told you are.Then, suddenly and inexplicably, your partner will become aloof, emotionally and perhaps physically abusive, and then leave you feeling discarded.

Although you may even wish to piece together the smoldering embers of the relationship that is now seemingly broken beyond repair, the healthiest thing to do would be to let it be.It can be very difficult to identify BPD in women much less men.In fact, BPD can become very confused with bipolar disorder I (mania and depression).Some research suggests that BPD is a disorder often identified and diagnosed mainly in women.Rarely is it ever diagnosed or even considered a diagnosis for a man. Because the pre-established gender norms (that are limited) have made identifying symptoms of BPD difficult in men.
