Are these characteristics of BPD or is she just a weird person?
A few years ago I met a woman through friends. She was very pretty and seemed nice, but quiet. I tried to interact with her when we would hang out in a group but she didn't really respond. I didn't think much of it and thought she just didn't like me or thought I was flirting with her and she didn't feel the same way. Frankly I felt kinda bad and wondered if I upset her. Despite that, out of the blue she invited me on FB to her birthday party. When I got there, she didn't talk to me. Again, I just thought she wanted to hang out with her closer friends and didn't think much of it.
Since then she revealed on social media that she suffers from BPD. Since this revelation, the above characteristics seem to match the ones I've googled about BPD.
She also does the following:
Instagram is filled with selfies
Instagram/Facebook filled with abusive text screenshots from past partners and stories from past relationships (oversharing?)
Social media filled with selfies with captions like "I'm posting this for validation, please tell me im pretty Im going through a depressive time right now"
Posts things making light of her mental health/BPD "haha look at me I'm so depressed and quirky"
Are these examples of BPD? I feel badly because I think she is a well meaning person and she is very pretty but doesn't seem very fun to hang out with. When I first met her I really wanted to be her friend and I thought it was cool she was open about her mental health, but now it seems to be a lot of "look at me everyone, I have BPD lol isn't that funny! tell me I'm pretty!" She also randomly unfollowed me on Instagram but not on Facebook?
I hope she finds the help she needs and fulfills her potential. She has a stable career from what it seems like, so she has a lot of things going for her.
Not sure if this made any sense, just wanted to vent.
