Tips for dating someone with bipolar

I am writing this for anyone who is dating someone that is bipolar or is thinking about dating someone that is bipolar.

However, I must disagree with the majority of things you have said about bipolar. I must disagree with the "lack of showing affection" as being a bipolar characteristic, simply because my ex was the opposite. Holding hands in public, kissing, and he was actually the cuddler. The only time I ever felt like sex was forced was when I knew our relationship was ending, which was the last time I ever saw him or spoke to him. When it came to sex in public, he was actually not like that what-so-ever. They dated for a year and a half and he never got off with her during sex. I would get many many dark e-mails in which he said the mantras are f-ing with his head, and that he was going to the dark side where no one could help him. Agree-- "told me he didn’t think anyone could be as supportive and loving as his parents had been in his life" how odd, that they see their parents as their only link or hope. "said I would end up leaving like all the rest" they know it. They will burn through another woman and the cycle continues. And me being an unstable person as it is, I couldnt handle the extreme unstability he was providing me, however, bipolars need love to do they not? Im still so depressed over it (4 months afterwards.) but I really want to know... He now has sunk to the bottom of his darkness and there is no reaching him.

45.) constantly would send me “statistics” of why our relationship wouldn’t work 46.) during fights he would not answer his phone, turn off the lights at his home and pretend he wasn’t there refusing to speak 47.) kept secrets from his parents 48.) said I didn’t make him feel sexually attractive, but nameless faceless women did in general said very hurtful spiteful things to me 49.) would chat on line while we were engaged with other women 50.) we would rarely have sex. Where most engaged couples are so in love they have sex 3-4 times a week if not more.

I was lucky if it happened 3-4 times a month 51.) he made me feel bad and unloved when he knew I wanted sex 52.) never took showers with me and took them another bathroom.

So to those of you who do bravely venture into getting into a relationship with those of us who have bipolar desease, kudos to you. Or someone who decided to get some form of diagnosis to manipulate others. I know, I married one and was abused night and day. Don't you feel that if he was seeking professional help and was taking meds and was not doing the stuff on the computer that he was doing and a few other negative things that he was doing and thinking of your . He was actually more of the giver, and never rubbed it in anyone's face. And we would have little fights bc I always felt it should be 50/50.. It even scared me to the point, that I knew I needed more than just “talk therapy”. I just think with mine the medicine really inhibited him to feel sexual yet I don’t think he was willing to admit it. When we first broke up (this is the second time) he cried to get me back, but we were both so emotionally that I cried as well. --during fights he would not answer his phone, turn off the lights at his home and pretend he wasn’t there refusing to speak 50. I was lucky like I said if we had it once a week and like I said, even that felt forced.
