First, let me preface this by saying I absolutely KNOW that people that have BPD are not all the same, that they are all individuals, that each is unique with their own story. I know that.
I also know that there is an amazing amount of similarities in the stories on this one board.
So please don't take this question offensively (or really any of mine - I still have a lot to learn.
But do most men with BPD cry a lot? My friend with BPD cries all the time to me. To others, he never sheds a single tear, never shows a whole lot of different emotions, or if something is upsetting to him it comes across as attitude rather than tears.
I also happen to be the only person he rages at.
Lately, while our friendship has hit some pretty bad spots, whenever we talk about it, he cries. I used to be a good judge of character and I used to take what people say as what they mean. But when he has been not so nice and we talk about it and he cries and says, "I miss my friend" I guess I am just trying to figure out if he is being sincere or trying to manipulate.
He's always cried with me (he used to say I 'turned him into a chick') and shown emotion but he has been very teary lately.
I know, you don't know my friend but I was just wondering if this was common among others here with a pwBPD in their lives? And how did you take it?
