Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a disorder characterized by difficulties regulating emotion. Because of this, people with BPD tend to be overly sensitive. They also have an intense fear of abandonment, so they never want to be left alone.
And, while they seek loving and long-lasting relationships, they usually end up pushing people away with their misplaced anger, impulsiveness, and severe mood swings.
