Bipolar people and dating
Some of us will amaze you you and you will find we can be very loving and giving. Statements such as "Bipolars are expert at manipulation" is completely unfounded. Daughter and you at times instead of it always being about himself that things might have been a bit better and not rushed into things. Daughter can find someone that can treat someone that will treat you both the way that you both need to be treated. And actually, I think he was overly involved in his parents life, but that just made him a family person, and me being someone who lacked family life, actually that was something I loved about him. Agree-- "he had a hard time getting off during sex" that was bc of the meds. I took it for 4 months and then I started having severe side effects, like dizziness and losing my hair. I have been off the drug now for 8 months, and although its been difficult at times, I feel myself getting stronger every day. And friends that have never loved someone that is bipolar just canât seem to understand, especially given how horribly he treated me and my daughter. I choose to love the real person that I only got to see glimpses of. Instead he would say mean things to me like, âi felt more sexy with the nameless faceless women on line then I do with you now, or ever did.â it really was a major hit to my self esteem, because at the time, I really did feel like it was me that wasnât âturningâ him on. =( and then the second time, never bad was done, and he doesnt even pick up his calls. Never was controlling or manipulative, howver, towards the end, he just never was around and was too busy with other activities. Realistically, the relationship never would have worked, but he never said it, but always said I was too good for him... But if I asked him to shower with me, he never turned me down. Towards the end he became suicidal, talking about hating his life and wanting to die. Iâve told him that I will always love him and I know there is not another ex girlfriend that even thinks about him anymore like I do.
Ironically he refused talk therapy as a way to deal with his illness 33.) constantly was negative and often wrote me e-mails in which he would put me, my family or daughter down.
34.) often brought up how much he hated his ex girlfriends 35.) constantly berated me for not doing things I said I would do and how I never thought about him 36.) often complained he âgave moreâ to others and expected nothing in return, when in reality he made note of it 37.) constantly complained we only did things I enjoyed, and I never thought about him 38.) he spent the night at a crisis center when I first broke it off with him, only 3 months into dating 39.) cried and begged me back 40.) was addicted to on line dating and would post on multiple dating sites even while engaged 41.) expected me to appear at certain events even after he broke up with me and became enraged when I didnât.
After our first date he was honest and told me he had been diagnosed with biopolar ii disorder and was taking medication.
I immediately thanked him for his candor and told him I wasnât interested.
So ignorant comment like yours need to change I think that's a very unfair characterization of all people with Bipolar Disorder. One person does not make us all looney and controlling like this man. I am a bi-polar woman and while I have had problems with relationships, the person you are describing above does not sound like a bi-polar to me. I too have been victimised but because of my vulnerability as someone with a mental health condition. I went into a deep depression after our breakup and became suicidal for 4 months. I have been looking for someone like you to talk to for 15 months now. I think thatâs why he would post on the porn web site. I have never ever had sex be more passionate and intense the way that sex was with him. Once when he came over for the weekend he said to me, âwe arenât going to have sex all weekend are we?
