Its really hurtful going out with him because when he wants me he pressures till i fall again and after going out with him he emotionally disconnects as if he hated me.You either love someone or you don’t, but you cant go behind then tell them you don’t love them, have sex with them and later not call in a week.
He just is unable to act as a normal boyfriend.-When he gets angry(really angry), must i tell him its irrational, to calm down or simply wait till it goes?
Must we tell them the truth of their attitude or will they hate us forever.
Sometimes he is irrational.-I don’t want to sound manipulative , but I’ve treated him well, I have been easy to him , i love him,…are there any psychological tactics to make his uneeded anger disappear, his periods of detachment be milder, that he stops being so egoistic and also sees my needs.
I´m sure there must be a psychological way to combat his inadequate attitudes due to his illness.( For example as giving confidence to a shy person, or making someone with phobias confront them).
I´m sure some attitudes of the other partner may aggravate it and others make them milder. Must i let him beg for sex…say today i´m busy i cant go ,…So that he values me.
I´m not that way but that does function with bipolars, or do you loose them completely.Even if we end up with our strange relationship, we are coworkers, I don’t have rage for him although he has touched my self-esteem.I want to learn how to deal with his illness so that no matter what if we end up being friends I am protected and know what to do in each case, whats the best.I do not claim to know everything in the world or everything there is to know about bipolar, however, through my life experiences and through the stories of others, there are a few things I know for certain when it comes to dating someone with bipolar. Sounds ridiculous, but even when he hates you, he still freaking loves you and just can’t process those emotions in the mind frame he is in.This can be managed however, but both parties must be aware of the cycle. And aware of what it is that usually breaks the cycle and sends him running back into your arms.This is a concept of which is incredibly difficult to understand. Infatuation is definitely not something you can control.
