It all depends on how you feel about working through it with her.
There were many days when she didn't want to see me, big changes in what she felt about me and a huge difficulty being logical. Please don't judge all bipolar people on one negative experience.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. Usually, a person with any mental illness can control it for awhile, particularly during the early sweetheart phase, so often there are no early indications.
I am looking for anyone who has dated a woman [or man] who can offer some advice. I do have one thing that sets off warning bells and that is if he (or in your case, she) falls head over heels in love before they barely know me. I dated a girl last year (it wasn't bipolar but undiagnosed borderline personality disorder) and I would never date someone with it again. Dating is hard enough as it is - why add extra stress and complexity?
By year 6 she was completely bat sh*t crazy and I couldn't take it any longer and I tried to get her to see a doctor and was accused of trying to insinuate she was "crazy" which was totally wrong. I am the kind of person who likes to know each day when I wake up and see soemone I will be dealing with the same person. Although it is pretty easy to tell in person after a couple times. Is it the sweet and caring one or the rip your head off, paranoid, total raving lunatic. I won't date anyone that is bipolar or a mental disorder; I still think many don't.
So after all that I became distant then her controlling behavior really came on strong and I just shut down which led her to cheating and her leaving the kids and I. I am the kind of person who likes to know each day when I wake up and see soemone I will be dealing with the same person. Although it is pretty easy to tell in person after a couple times. Not someone who will go off on me for no reason, and pop a xanax (and God only knows what else)just to have normal conversation. they are just a mess in general; Get ready; they will always have an excuse for their actions; if they cheat, or are mean to you, or irresponsible; all they have to say is don't blame me, blame the disorder. Primary symptoms are dramatic and unpredictable mood swings.
Bipolar people tend to be more intuitive and self aware then most, due to the fact that we have to be, to survive being bipolar every day. We are still just as worthy of love and affection, etc.
We still want all the things that the rest of you want.I was involved with someone for over a year, I went through a lot because I felt deeply for him, unfortunately he wouldn't admit that he has a problem, everything was turned around to be everyone ele's fault.I would have been more than happy to work through it with him.It may be more of a struggle for us to find it, but we still want it too.I wish more "normal" people could understand that but there's still a lot of ignorance out there about mental illness.Many of us are capable of more, but not everyone will give us the chance to prove it. But since it is something that some of us have to deal with every day, we learn coping skills and some of us are capable of having a relationship...drama free. Yes, I can get moody sometimes, but that's why I'm so upfront with guys I date about this, because I want to be honest with them. And honestly, dating actually tends to "perk" me up since I suffer from mostly the depression part of this disorder.
