Dating a man with borderline personality
If you’re new to this, you will think your girlfriend is crazy. Most guys make the mistake of thinking that they can help her, that you understand her and so on. I believe that it’s important to forget about BPD and focus on what’s in front of you in that moment.Imagine that BPD doesn’t exist for a bit and that the past doesn’t matter.It is even more important to determine what BPD traits (symptoms of BPD) look like in adolescent males who cannot be diagnosed until age 18.Psychologist“For years, psychology has been heavily saturated with attention on women and their relationships, as if the male gender didn’t matter.All you have to do is take a quick visit to any community forum and you’ll see associated words such as: And so on and so forth. One of the first things I want to teach you is to You need to keep in mind that your upbringing and life experience is unique to you and you alone.Now the way I interpret this list is that BPD is basically a large umbrella with all these issues underneath it.

I believe that relationships should generally be a 50/50 partnership.
This is why most males are misdiagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder, attention deficit disorder, conduct disorder, and even psychosis.
As a result, it is important that we understand what BPD symptoms can look like in males.
Well, men too, can suffer from low self-esteem, insecurity, and enormous self doubt that can compromise the stability of their intimate relationships.
Dating a girl with BPD doesn’t have to be nearly as difficult as you may believe. Because if you ask me, BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) is now a mainstream ‘disorder’ that nearly every young, attractive woman has. Even the psychologists who know what they are talking about say that diagnosing BPD is virtually impossible. Because almost every girl has some sort of BPD behavior.
