Bipolar dating stories Uk boys video chatrooms


Years ago, I dated a guy with undiagnosed bipolar disorder. When low, his habit of stumbling out of bed to browse porn as the kettle boiled, or spending hours trawling the profile pictures of escorts had me convinced he had some sort of addiction issues.

A few months into our relationship, I dragged him off to sex therapy because of his seemingly uncontrollable behaviour. Up until the escort point, I’d thought that the other signs – the spending sprees, sporadic drug-taking, or staying up all night to work - were nothing more than foils to his ample creativity.

Individuals learn to watch out for triggers that may send them spinning into an exaggerated mood state.

Bipolar is essentially a mood disorder which causes an individual to swing between depressed and elevated states.

Some 2.4 million people are thought to be affected in the UK, with most diagnosed with either bipolar 1 -characterised by the most severe ‘up’ states, known as mania (which can also lead to hallucinations), or bipolar 2: the less severe form - defined by hypomania, a milder elevated state.

So don’t dump your dude just because he has a mood disorder.

You could end up having a relationship with an emotionally in tune man who is aware of self and talks openly and honestly about his feelings.

I’d always known he struggled with high and low moods.
