Dating someone with schizoid
Again it's not about keeping you out, it's about not letting other kids play with your security blanket. But you absolutely need to have a life of your own, like-minded friends, a place to unwind in general...
living with S./avoidant types is a lot like living with a cat imo.
Like if he follows a series and you want to watch it with him, don't get offended if he suddenly says no, it migh just be the one show that evokes some responses/memories that are mapped to his comfort zone somehow and it would feel very uncomfortable having to explain and justify it or listen to other people comment on it.
It's not like that with everything, just certain things he might be protective of.
Efforts to improve the situation are temporary and shallow at best.
There is something else happening other than poor communication skills.
Before it gets that far, however, here are some things you can look out for to see if your partner has BPD and if they need help: These are just some of the warning signs that you might be dating someone with Borderline Personality Disorder.
The schizoid is introverted because he doesn't like people and would rather be lonely. The avoidant fears rejection and fears social interactions.
Things become even more complicated if you are dating someone with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).
While the beginnings of a relationship with someone who has Borderline Personality Disorder might take you to the greatest euphoric heights imaginable, it can also take you to the lowest lows.
If possible, abrupt changes should come with a warning.
Getting in his face demanding answers to broad/vague/ambiguous questions right then and there = a very bad idea.
This is not a marriage, it is an inequitable partnership.
