You find yourself unsure about whether or not your courtship should continue. As someone with bipolar disorder, I am here to tell you what you need to know about dating someone like me, so you that can keep developing a relationship with this wonderful guy.1.
More than just a dip in mood in response to life’s setbacks and disappointments, depression changes how you think, feel, and function in your daily life. Many men find it difficult to talk about their feelings so they tend to focus on the physical symptoms that often accompany depression.What exactly is the inner pain that can’t be faced and dealt with?Reciting the usual list of depression symptoms and the effects they can have on everyday life only gets you so far. Talking about “inner pain” suggests despair or other unbearable hurt that demands an explanation and must be escaped as quickly as possible.If you date someone with bipolar disorder and they’re doing well, they’ll pretty much be just like any other guy you would date: they’ll tease you when you snore, roll their eyes when you want to watch “The Haves and Have Nots,” and, hopefully, scramble you some eggs after sex.The point is, people with mental illness work, play and live out their lives just like so-called “normal” people.2.
