Borderline women dating

While these representations are regularly problematic, there are some that seize the essence of BPD and help to communicate its existence, flattering or otherwise.

Perhaps most pointedly, there is the psycho ex-girlfriend trope.

We spent just two days apart during the course of a year-ish relationship, leaving us husks of the people we once were, lost in each others’ crazy by the time he (because of course I wasn’t going anywhere) called it a day.

Like the club Groucho Marx didn’t want to belong to, if somebody loves you, they must be an idiot because you know — your BPD tells you — that you are fundamentally unlovable.In this age of dynamic information, there is often a strange dichotomy framing mental health.Access to lived examples via blogs and social media means people are chipping away at stigmas every day.When dating, I spent most of my time fighting similarly reckless impulses, like the day after my (ex) boyfriend dumped me and I eyed my phone maniacally, dialing his number on a bi-minutely basis, thankfully never giving in to letting it ring, but certainly wasting time I should have been using to focus on my (as yet, six years later, un-handed-in) thesis.Or the time I mixed impulsive behavior with another, far less discussed aspect of BPD — hypersexuality — by ordering a man off the Internet.
