My most popular posts are ones relating to dating and bipolar disorder.I’m glad there are so many people interested in this topic. Are there rules for dating a person with bipolar disorder?But then, simplicity is not what you fell in love with in the first place, is it? Most likely you were attracted to the volatility, the edginess, the uncertainty.Loving someone who's bipolar means loving a panoply of characters: the girl who's overcast one morning and the one who's radiant by mid-afternoon.Sometimes he is irrational.-I don’t want to sound manipulative , but I’ve treated him well, I have been easy to him , i love him,…are there any psychological tactics to make his uneeded anger disappear, his periods of detachment be milder, that he stops being so egoistic and also sees my needs.I´m sure there must be a psychological way to combat his inadequate attitudes due to his illness.( For example as giving confidence to a shy person, or making someone with phobias confront them).Type 1 bipolar disorder means you have more extreme mood swings with longer periods of mania. Of course, neither type is necessarily ‘better’ or ‘worse’ than another and everyone with the disorder will have experience what they deem to be the ‘worst part’ of the disorder at some point or another.However, while everyone with the disorder knows what to expect, those close to them may not be as familiar with how they might act during a time of mania or depression.
Mania often means we’re thinking about things at a fast pace, having ‘great ideas’ every other second and thinking we can rule the world. For example, doing things like getting tattoos or piercings that we may not have thought about beforehand or spending a lot of money.
Its really hurtful going out with him because when he wants me he pressures till i fall again and after going out with him he emotionally disconnects as if he hated me.
You either love someone or you don’t, but you cant go behind then tell them you don’t love them, have sex with them and later not call in a week.
There are common misconceptions surrounding what to expect when you have a friend or partner with bipolar disorder.
Of course, everyone suffers and deals with bipolar differently, and there are many different types on the spectrum, with Type 1 and 2 being most common.
