Dating someone with bipolar disorder tips playing games dating relationship
Try to keep any discussion centered on your feelings about observed behavior. A person with bipolar disorder needs to eat and so do you. If you want to be extravagant, cook the meal for your date. A low point does not automatically lead to serious depression, which calls for a doctor’s intervention.In fact, I would suggest that you not talk about their disease at all, unless they want to. I am many things, and having bipolar is only one piece. I can’t help but reiterate a person with bipolar disorder that is under treatment wants what every person does. What does one do when the disease really appears to be altering your date’s behavior?We'll stay up all night kissing and loving you because you are our ultimate high. You are what we dreamed of when we were 18 and breaking down on the bathroom floor because another boy just stole another part of us.
Each situation is unique, and every person is special. It is not fully understood by doctors and is less so by the general population. Ask your date if they are enjoying their time with you.
We want intimacy, understanding, and ultimately, love.
Having stated what I consider obvious, I’ll give some thought to what many see as the difficulties of dating a person with bipolar disorder.
What you might try doing instead is explaining to the bipolar sufferer how you feel when they behave this way. I really enjoy having friends over and cooking something with love to give them. There are myriad reasons for a person with bipolar disorder to feel low.
Talk about your feelings and not about their disease. If you talk by phone often or send text messages regularly and that suddenly stops, don’t assume the worst. Your date may not be good at expressing what is happening, and they may not desire to. As with other things I’ve written here, ask what you can do to help them feel better. We are just as prone to sadness as anyone in the general population.
When you're dating someone like me — someone with bipolar disorder — you have to be ready for a bumpy ride. You'll never be loved harder or shown more affection in your entire life.
