But perhaps more surprisingly, borderline was also strongly correlated with intimate partner violence, even more so than for psychopathy and narcissism.
Their melodramatic gestures are sometimes pathetic or tragic, but again, nothing that will scare anyone. Emo Despite of the soap opera-type behavior found in psychiatric literature, between 25-50 percent of people with borderline are boys and men, and males who are angry, jealous and hateful tend to be dangerous.
They fall head over heels in love with people they don’t know the first thing about and then become disillusioned and deeply resentful when the other person fails to match their fantasies.
They are emotionally unstable and vulnerable and they feel very hurt and betrayed when people, as they see it, let them down.

Women may think these guys, with their frailness and tragic personas are intriguing and good projects for improvement.
