• Unstable relationships
• Ridiculously high emotional preferences
• Severe and frequent mood swings
• Constantly seeking solace in relationships
• Dangerous and violent behavior
• Suicidal tendencies
• Constant anger and hatred
• Temporary paranoia
• Feelings of anxiety and abandonment
• Excess eating and monetary spending
• Boredom and a feeling of emptiness
• Constantly misunderstanding others

Borderline personality disorder is found to be prevalent in young people. However, there tends to be a gradual decline in the severity of the symptoms as the person grows older. BPD treatment includes psychotherapy and medical intervention.
