Do you have any advice on how to deal with a depressed boyfriend/girlfriend?

Well it generally helps to know why s/he is depressed first. After that all you can do is be supportive, nurturing and loving.
Look depression is not easy. It's a vicious cycle that is hard to break, and to top it all off there are many things that can cause it. It could be environmental. It could be the weather. It might be situational, and if it's none of the above it might be plainly chemical. In that case I suggest he sees a doctor about it and gets medication. All the other stuff is something that might be easier to work out.
Anyway if you want me to give more detailed advice I say you should tell me more. If not then that's all I can give.
To answer your question as to if I would date somebody who was depressed. I dated three in the past. I might do it again if the relationship I am in now, were to fail, but I seriously doubt it will. Anyway I can't tell. I guess it depends on the person.
Anyway gotta run. Hope this was insightful.2
