They may feel rejected by others, even when the other person did not intend to reject them. This can cause problems in relationships.Youth who have borderline personality traits often have other conditions such as Anxiety disorders; Substance abuse; Mood disorders (like depression); Eating disorders, (usually binge eating or bulimia, but sometimes anorexia nervosa).

For these reasons, psychologists and psychiatrists generally don't make a formal diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) until youth are at least 18.
