Dating after a borderline relationship - relationships after dating a borderline | General Support.


Typically individuals with BPD have difficulty trusting others. Irritability and inappropriate anger with temper tantrums may occur. The symptoms of BPD may resemble love addiction. While love addiction is not medically diagnosable, addictive behavior is difficult to live with. Relationships build quickly and intensely. They are unable to see the faults of their partner, and cannot tolerate changes in intimacy. Because their partner will eventually disappoint them, the person with BPD must reconcile their black and white conceptualization. Splitting shields those with the disorder from the anxiety of conflicting emotions.

First, we who have just exited from a relationship with a borderline need recovery time. And yes...I also wonder if I will be happy, entering into a new relationship with someone who is NOT a borderline because that first stage of Idealization by our ex's was passionate beyond description. They were so intense...and they made us feel as if we were the most beautiful, sexiest, smartest, most wonderful women in the world. Unfortunately, that stage quickly yielded to the infamous "devaluation & discard" stages of BP's and N's.
