We've only just met but their was chemistry and we got on really well. We stayed up at a friends party talking all night and planned to meet up again.
She told me she has bi-polar which is making me a little concerned about dating her. Anyone on here have (diagnosed) depression or has dated somebody who has? How does it affect your relationships or your behavior to your partner?
I like her and we got on well but am I asking for a rocky ride by getting close to this girl?

bi-polar isn't really [only] depression.. it's called 'manic-depression' because she will be in stages of high energy where she can't control her actions (the manic stage).. then suddenly her mood can swing a 180 (the depressed stage). Yes it will be a rollercoaster ride for you.. my lecturer was telling us stories about her mother while we were learning about bi-polar in university.. sounds pretty full on. I think if you are prepared for that.. then good for you.. you would have to be extremely supportive and patient with her. I think if she takes her medications she will be able to control her symptoms which will be easier on the both of you..0
