I'm just curious. I suffer from bipolar and anxiety and it has effected relationships, how about you?
Guys or girls would it be a deal breaker if someone you liked had a mental handicap (bipolar, anxiety etc.)?

Yes, it would be a deal breaker. I've never dated a bipolar, but have had a few friends who were. Be friends with them could be challenging, one stopped taking his med because he wouldn't accept that he was bipolar. He became one scary guy. Mood changes, talks of suicide, manic laughing. I could only imagine how difficult it would be to date a bipolar. Anxiety can be just as bad.0
Is she going to regularly be screaming, crying, throwing things, hitting, locking herself in the bathroom?0
depends on the handicap. i. e schitzophrenia - yes, a deal breaker. nymphomania - not so much..0
It depends on the condition and how much it affects the person. Also, the person with the condition should realise it isn't always as easy to handle certain situations.0
It all depends on the severity of the condition but no I would not rule someone out if they had a mental issue. No one is perfect.0
Necrofilia. Though I'm not sure that's a handicap... (That's not the only one but it was the first one that came to mind. Really it would depend on the severity of the handicap and what they're doing to combat/deal with it.)0
My girl has anxiety and although its hard to deal with it sometimes i still love her and its nothing we can't work past0
I care whats on the inside so no I would still like them0
Depends on how severe it is and how it affects their daily life routine.0
What Girls Said 8
Bipolar (not sure which one)
Borderline Personality Disorder
EDNOS - Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified
That's what I've been diagnosed with and it sucks ass. It definitely does not help me in relationships because then get huge anxiety and insecurities about myself but my bf still likes me (don't know why). My boyfriend has epilepsy and brain damage so he's not the best communicator nor does he do all that well in school but it doesn't turn me off. He's a great guy regardless of his disabilities. He's just misunderstood a lot. I won't judge someone for having problems because I have my fair share of them too.0
It depends on whether or not he's managing it or wallowing in self misery. As someone who has struggled with depression and an eating disorder, I do not look down upon mental illness at all. However, I cannot and will not be around someone who isn't taking the steps necessary to get better. Not only will they be unhealthy, but the entire relationship will be as well.0
My ex has (suffers from) Asperger Syndrome, Selective Mutism, Social Anxiety and Social Phobia (Social Anxiety Disorder)0
Not at all. I have BPD (diagnosed) prolly comorbid with bipolar (undiagnosed) and I like guys that are a little fucked up like me. I relate easier, and tbh I enjoy the whirlwind1
Not at all would it be a problem0
I have severe anxiety, I'm agoraphobic, I have some psychological trauma I'm dealing with, and I have depression. although I'm 18 and have yet to have a boyfriend I still think it can happen. As long as you are aware of your issues and are seeking help to manage them, it shouldn't ruin your relationships.0
No. I have it so it shouldn't matter.0
