Except the problem is, alongside all of these normal feelings are the not-so-normal attachment issues, an innate crippling sense of self, the feeling of attachment for someone who's basically a stranger and a whole bunch of other confusing and exaggerated emotions that come with having borderline personality disorder. This pattern compulsively repeats, as he's acting-out unresolved rage from childhood neglect and betrayal. Since my girlfriend's diagnosis, I have done some considerable research on BPD, mostly as a means to better understand and to protect her. This guy will have you feeling just horrible about hurting his feelings, even when you know you didn't mean a thing by that silly, offhand comment you made about one of his relatives. In reality though, he wants you to refute his words, and convince him you'll stand by him, in spite of any financial or emotional setbacks you'll likely suffer. SBBro wrote:

I know I can. I am a picky girl when it comes to romantic relationships.
