Dating a schizoid girl
The film Fatal Attraction (quite an excellent performance by Glenn Close) and the recent court case of Jodi Arias come to mind.
What do all the films and print stories have in common? Dating a person with BPD is not part of your deal – or so you thought.
Jodi Arias – in my opinion, – a good example of a woman with quiet BPD (she functions superficially well but her chameleon-like façade breaks open once her relational views are challenged) murdered her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander; Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction attempted to murder her former lover but failed and found her own death.
Most real-life relationships with a partner who has BPD are not deadly.
I know she likes me, but she withdraws and becomes very distant anytime we start getting close.
Affected people typically have an acute discomfort when put in circumstances where they must relate to others.
No matter what age you are or level of dating experience, reading men’s interest in you can be a struggle.
