help with dating someone with borderline

Hi Guys,

I recently (about a month ago) started dating someone with borderline. She has been in therapy for it for about 9 months now and is taking medication to treat some of the symptoms.

So far everything is going well and to be honest I am starting to fall for her. My question is, how much attention is just right and how much is to much and will get her running.

I know that while dating someone with borderline, you need to give them more attention and reassurance then you would someone who didn't suffer from the personality disorder, however I also know that if you shower them with to much attention, they might feel trapped and run.

Can someone please help me with what the line is, or how I can make sure I am not crossing the line?

Thanks
