Hey so im interested in a girl and I think she's interested in me too, we have been talking only but she told me she has a mental illness and she said it was "psychosis" and im not sure if I should be worried or if its fine.. Also what is it like to date someone with a mental illness? Are there things I should be worried about or look out for or should I just not date her?

People with mental illness still have a lot of love to give and deserve happiness like anyone else. You liked her before she told you about it, so what changed? She has a label now? It shouldn't matter. If I were you, I'd read up on her condition, ask her about it and try to understand.
I myself have a slew of mental illnesses-- depression, PTSD and Bipolar all included. My boyfriend accepts me the way I am, goes with me to every appointment and helps me through my breakdowns. Mine aren't too extreme, but what I need each time varies. Some days I'll need space, others I'll need him by my side constantly. It depends. You have to be able to read her.0
