    The criteria are different, but it's basically the same condition. The large majority of people who fit the criteria of BPD also fit the criteria of EUPD and vice versa. Some mental health professionals use the APA's manual, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) and others use the WHO's manual, the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems...

    Emotionally unstable personality disorder is the World Health Organisation's name for what is similar to the American Psychiatric Association's borderline personality disorder. Staff should explain that to patients, because most people don't know that.

  • People who boast about the stupid things they've done, as though they're achievements

    Why do many people boast about bad/stupid things that they've done, seemingly wanting praise/recognition? They seem to think that there's some sort of competition as to who can be the worst. Examples I've heard include how drunk they've got and the subsequent fights they've been in, the prison sentences they've served, that they smoke 40 cigarettes a day, how they managed to flood their flat and jumping...

  • Many people proudly proclaim that they never watch TV, as though that makes them superior to the vast majority of people who do - as though never watching TV is proof of being a cultured genius.

  • How can I stop people angrily criticising at me for it - or counter it when they do?

    Many people who go to bed early and get up early boast about it, saying things like: "I've got so much done whilst you've been lazing in bed!" and "I get up at 6 every morning - I can't believe that some lazy people are in still in bed at 8!" It's like they want a reward or medal for...

    I agree that mentioning your intentions from day one should be best and is how I'd like girls to be towards me. The problem with that is that it often scares the girl off because she thinks I'm coming on too strong, too soon.

  • There have been many occasions on which I've not been able to ignore them, because they've deliberately woken me up, shouting at me for 'being lazy' for not getting up early and demanding that I get up immediately. I've been told: "I've been up for over an hour and you're still lazing around in bed!"

    When it doesn't affect them, I don't understand their anger towards me....

  • I've been wrongly labelled lazy many times for often getting up relatively late. I've been told: "You're still in bed - you're so lazy!" "How can you still be in bed at this time? You're so lazy!" and I've heard someone say of me: "He was still in bed at 8.30 this morning - he's so lazy!" and "He's so lazy that he was in bed until nearly 9 this morning!" I asked...

    Does your twin sister have the mental health problems that you have? Why is she confident but you're not?

    You have a good point about cliques, subcultures etc. If you don't fit into them and aren't popular, you can become an outcast. Do you want to change and become part of any of those groups?

    How can I avoid the friendzone? A lot of girls say that they want to be friends first.

    Try telling your adoptive parents that you're grateful to them and that you want to know more about your past. The information that your adoptive parents have should help you decide if you want to meet your biological parents.

    Is it just this issue that you feel uncomfortable talking to your adoptive parents about - or is it difficult for you to talk to them about any deep, meaningful...

    Yes, try that - although they may not have contact details for them. It may take quite a lot of time to track them down, especially if they've moved around a lot or changed their names. If they have common names, it may be difficult to distinguish between them and other people who share their names when you're searching for them.

  • Being insulted for watching TV & films rather than reading novels

    Many people have talked down to me with contempt because I watch television shows and films, telling me that I should read novels instead. They claim that they never watch TV. They say that TV and films are 'low culture' that are 'for retards' and that intelligent people don't watch them, but read novels instead. I was forced to read novels at school, which I hated because I found them boring. I've...

    An example is a forum called Adult Adoptee Support, where you can have conversations with other adoptees. They'll be able to give you more information.

  • I didn't ask when to start splitting the bill, I want to know how to bring up the subject of splitting the bill starting with the first date.

    I've suggested to a few girls that I pay for the first date and she pay for the second. However, none of those girls were willing to go on a second date with me.

  • I am honest about my situation.

    Yes, most men can't pay for everything on expensive dates frequently. That's why gold-diggers move onto the next mug when their current mark runs out of money.
