  • Depends. If they are taking precautions to manage it. Therapy, medication, exercise, etc whatever it is that works for them. But I do not want to feel like I am their cure. I just want to be their support. When I was young I tried to make my boyfriend my cure and I won't do that again nor will I let it happen to me. My brother's ex girlfriend did it to him too. It's too much for a person to handle.

  • I imagine it would be tough but so is any relationship! I have symptoms of higher functioning autism or Asperger syndrome, so I won't hold it against any woman if she struggles with her own demons. I suppose life is supposed to test us all, and some of us have more irritating demons than others. You have to keep on fighting and you can't let it bring you down in this life.

  • As bad at it sounds I wouldn't date someone like that. My past relationship was pretty much with someone like this and it really took a toll on me. I tried helping them and being there for them as much as I could but I noticed toward the end that I was kind of being dragged down with her. Unless they have a mild form of anxiety or depression I might consider it but I would still be a little reluctant to do so, it was just too emotionally draining for me.

  • I currently am doing so, and so is she by dating me. I've had people who couldn't handle it but I don't resent them for it.

  • My ex has severe anxiety and depression. Yes he’s a great person but he suddenly shifts to these moods and mental states that drive me nuts. He suddenly got mad at everything for no reason. And yes he takes hook his pills, but it was still just too much stress for me.

  • I have and it didn’t affect the relationship
    But the relationship didn’t last more than a month but it was for different reasons
    I say dating it doesn’t really affect it
    However it depends though how serious the relationship
    Like dating I’m fine with but like marriage or something I would have to consider

  • Takes a special person to be with someone who does. I'm currently with a man with anxiety, depression, and ptsd. But I understand and don't judge him for that. Just as he doesn't judge me for having a physical illness.

  • I have. The anxiety is a bit more tolerable. Depression was tough. It drove me to get easily frustrated with a guy at one point that I felt it was doing us more harm than good to be together.

  • I am engaged to a man with depression. It also depends because my man is high functioning with depression. it means that he is able to carry on with his life and responsibilities without his depression interfering.

  • my fiance already is, I've had anxiety for a lot of my my life and it definitely puts a strain on a relationship and will test you in multitude of ways, so you need to go all in or not at all with someone prone to anxiety or depression.

  • I have dated someone with bipolar. It was messy. He tried killing himself and blaming me. He didn’t discourage me. If the guy knew and was willing to deal with his issues I would again.
