Dating someone with mental illness

It left me frustrated and ready to end our relationship. In fact, they did the opposite by hurting him and causing him to sink deeper into the abyss.

I was overzealous in my efforts to help my partner cope with his symptoms of disinterest in his everyday activities and restlessness.

I love gloomy Victorian novels, obscure Korean horror films, Premier League soccer, and knitting.

Dating someone who is going through these mental hardships requires a certain level of compassion void of condescension. The following list explains things to keep in mind when dating someone with mental health problems. If your partner is in a bad mood, it is not necessarily because of you. Do not make their life (and subsequently their emotional and mental health) more difficult by being cold and unyielding. Let your partner know they are loved and that they are not a burden. Bring the best out of your partner, and let them bring the best out of you. Love is a two-way street and relationships have to be worked for.

Now if you triggered something in your partner, yeah it’s your fault; but, those random mood swings where your partner just seems “out of it? They aren’t ever easy, but they’re (usually) worth it.
