Is the person you’re dating or involved with a very difficult person to be with? Do they cause you a lot of pain or suffering because of their personality type? If so, your romantic partner or spouse may have a personality disorder (or elements of one). A personality disorder is an enduring collection of behavioral patterns that cause disruption and emotional pain in a person’s life, and in the lives of those close to them.
In our new podcast, Are You Dating A Lunatic, we teach you how to identify and protect yourself from various types of personality disorders, such as:
Borderline Personality: They can love you one minute, then hate you the next. When you’re with a borderline, it’s like you’re walking on eggshells.
Antisocial: They disregard your rights and can hurt you without feeling much, if any guilt, about it.
Narcissist: It’s all about them. They have an oversized ego and unrealistic exaggerated belief in their self-worth—often putting you down to make themselves feel better.
Dependent Personality Disorder: They cling to you and rely on you for everything—pretty, soon you can feel smothered by their constant need for attention and affection.
Histrionic: This is the drama king or queen who likes to make a spectacle out of everything. They have to be the center of attention—if you don’t give them the attention they crave, they can explode and make your life miserable.
Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder: They have a strong need to order and control their environment—for example, color coding their closet and making sure everything is a certain way. Their controlling and inflexible ways can all take the fun out of a relationship.
