Re: Dating/ Bipolar issues
I feel for you. I have told everyone I know that I am BP. Why? I don't really fit the classic symptoms of this - meaning I don't have the raging mood swings. I do understand though that someone might want to run the other way when they hear that someone they are dating has this. I guess I am not really interested in dating enough to care. I guess its the butterfly theory - let them fly away and they will eventuallly come back on their own. One thing I wouldn't do is tell them right away. Let them get to know you well, so they can judge your personality on their own.
They can then see that you are not some raging monster and can form an opinion of this illness on their own. Besides, its just bad form to start emptying one's closet of skeletons right away anyhoo...
Good luck! Starbaby
