Dating a guy with schizophrenia dating become relationship
I’ve heard that I’m picky, that I’m not vulnerable enough or that I’m just plain afraid of being in a relationship. Either because of a poor fit or because I’ve been too nervous, pushy or paranoid, it’s never clicked.
I don’t think others’ thoughts hold any real bearing on my thoughts and emotions when the prospect of a relationship presents itself. For the last eight years, I’ve had a major red flag hanging over my head: the diagnosis of a major mental illness.
Falling in love is hard but it only gets more complicated when you have to drop the bomb about having a mental illness to your date.
Do I tell her that I was diagnosed with schizophrenia eight years ago after I took a trip to the U. where I thought I was a prophet and I was trying to save the world?
After a bathroom break, she came back to ask him questions about his condition and whether or not he has ever been violent in the past.
These questions caused a rift between him and her which soon ended the date.
The interaction between him and the woman brought upon a paranoia which he could not suppress.
This paranoia combined with stress from work and his relationships resulted in depression.
