Dating bipolar man outlook not auto updating
Only you can tell if that person is actively seeking help or not.
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.
Being relaxed, listening and understanding the situation will lead to a resolution of the problem. I was wondering how to deal with guys who make shit up about your friends. Bipolar people don't cheat anymore than other people. The problem is you know you are lying, so naturally to make yourself more secure you bring in the "required additional proof".
When you are together with the person you are dating, find other things to talk about, like art or music or movies or really anything other than the disease. There may be times in which you find them behaving unreasonably or even in a bizarre fashion.
Don’t talk about their medication regimen or other aspects of their treatment, unless they want to. All I can do is relate my experience and personal knowledge. However, I am a Certified Peer Specialist in mental health, and I have been trained in how to relate to other people with mental illness.
In other words, the person with the disorder seemed quite close and caring and affectionate one day.
The next, they were distant and curt and even mean. Please, don’t ever ask the person with bipolar disorder whether or not they are taking their medicine as prescribed nor if their symptoms are flaring up.
Having one does not mean that a person is not worth the effort required in forming a romantic relationship. If you are dating a person who tells you they have bipolar disorder, you should feel honored they shared that information. I dated a man for eight or nine months and told him my diagnosis only to have him abandon me, leaving my life without a trace even though I was completely stable during our time together.
