Signs you are dating someone who is bipolar
You may feel nervous about starting a new relationship and finding the “right” time to tell your partner you have bipolar disorder.
Slowly he began to use my diagnosis of bipolar against me.
However, dating—when you live with a mental health condition—can be complicated: You have self-doubt, you question yourself, and mainly you assume you are the underdog in romantic relationships.
When I accepted my diagnosis and life with bipolar disorder, I finally found my confident self, but I had to overcome some obstacles to get there.
The mood swings associated with bipolar disorder can cause extreme changes in behavior.

When experiencing depressive episodes, a person with bipolar disorder can seem tired and sad. These major shifts in mood can make communicating and socializing difficult.
