Dating someone with paranoia
I believe individuals with bipolar or any mental health condition add depth and understanding to a person’s life.
We live in a society right now that lacks empathy and is void of emotion.
Sometimes this can lead us to be irresponsible and careless, but if handled properly, can actually be a gift to another person.
In my opinion, everyone benefits from getting to know someone who is unlike them.
But it was not long before concrete evidence of him cheating on me surfaced.
After our breakup, it took me almost a year to feel like I could start dating again. Past experiences with dating also include people asking about my diagnosis of bipolar disorder.
Wait until you feel comfortable, and believe that the other person deserves to hear about that part of your life.
Know that you are a capable and unique individual who has something special to add to another person’s life.
It is not necessary for you to reveal your diagnosis up front.The most empathetic people I know live with bipolar disorder, depression or anxiety.
