Answer this for BP Hope – How do you navigate the dating scene with bipolar?
As some may know, (look out I’m about to toot my own horn), on Wednesdays I’m an ambassador blogger at BP Hope Magazine. This week I gave my own little twist on Dating with Bipolar. BP Hope is looking for your dating experiences. Just answer “THE Question” and submit it to the editor and you may be included in the magazine’s SOUND OFF section in the upcoming issue. There is a deadline, so hurry up and
make up a fake boyfriend or girlfriend, no… I mean share your real dating stories.
We are all in different stages of bipolar disorder and recovery. Yet telling someone you have bp at the beginning of a relationship could result in being judged unfairly.
THE QUESTION>>>>> How do you navigate the dating scene with bipolar?
Submit here to let us know before October 30th.
HERE is what I say, please keep in mind: I am not a love doctor or love guru outside of my own mind.
- Dating Rule one – Observe the potential mate from a distance complying with the 500ft court ordered restraining order.
- Dating Rule two – Spam/plaster your potential mate’s Facebook page with pictures of you with their face Photoshopped next to you with hearts, and kiss marks to bedazzle the photo.
- Dating Rule three – Let your potential mate get to know the real you and the people closest to you. Introduce them to your family, psychiatrist, pharmacist, med manager, and support group facilitator.
- Dating Rule four – Educate your potential mate’s understanding of mental illness. Guys, inform her that “bipolar” doesn’t mean “bisexual”! Girls, tell him that hyper-sexuality is symptomatic of mania, and you are prone to mania.
