Dating bipolar disorder
A person with bipolar disorder has a lot of explaining to do when they first start dating someone new.
They have to explain the nature of their disorder, the paranoia that can accompany it and the strange or even sometime offensive and hurtful behaviors that they exhibit during a manic episode; not to mention the occasional onset of psychosis.
With the right balance of the two people with bipolar disorder can hold down loving, healthy relationships with their partners.
We all have to find someone we like, establish a connection and then manage the progression of the relationship.I needn’t worry about the cellulite because more than a few lovers have had ringside seats to my thighs and came back for more.But I definitely need to think about how my bipolar disorder impacts dating and choosing the right man to bring into my life.A person with bipolar dating someone who is not bipolar failing to explain their disorder to their partner can lead to severe problems.Likewise, a person dating someone with bipolar who is unable to be understanding is not likely to stay in the relationship for very long.
Another problem can be the paranoia that accompanies these manic episodes.
