Dating bi polar women
BUT, hypomania is something that can be more easily controlled with proper medication, knowledge and acceptance of the illness, desire to be faithful.
This doesn't mean a person suffering with hypomania will not fall into an affair, because they certainly can as a result of the above mentioned hypersexuality and lack of impulse control.
Therefore, make sure not to guilt your date into staying up too late or eating a full box of chocolate with you.
You may even want to suggest that the two of you take a walk or play a sport together in order to keep his symptoms of bipolar disorder at bay.
Unlike in a "typical" relationship, where each side shoulders an equal amount of the responsibility, you will need to be prepared to expend more patience and understanding.
I was married once before to a man that did not have bipolar and he was a chronic, hardcore cheater. It's their life; they've raised two sons together and are still together.
He did it alot, he did it without conscience, he blamed others for his mistakes, he wouldn't accept personal responsibility for anything, he liked what he was doing and NOTHING would or could stop him. He is now 54 years old and I don't know how he is acting, anymore.
Dating a bipolar guy is not for the faint at heart.
People who have bipolar disorder are more likely to abuse alcohol or drugs, take excessive risks that can lead to accidents, or be unable to hold down a job.
