These two patterns will probably result in an volatile "love-hate" relation with sure people. lots of people with borderline personality disorder appear to be caught with a very rigid "black-white" view of relationships. Either a relationship is perfect and that man or woman is wonderful, or the relationship is condemned and that human being is terrible. People with borderline personality disorder seem unable or unwilling to accept any sort of "grey area" in their personal life and relationships.
