Everyone doesn't get mad or aggressive when depressed. not even sad.Some just get low tired and rest/sleep a lot.
Depression. not decision
Say it was manic depression
@Lindseyromeo In that case, yes, I would still date them, but would also try to help them through the more "manic" times, which usually require psychotherapy, if not medication. Love is selfless, right? Where do we draw that line, and even if the relationship fails, and they move on... what if they were better for the time, and brought more joy to the world? That is time well spent.
IF you're not a psychiatric or psychological professional, you cannot help someone through manic depression: they need therapy and medication. If they are taking none and getting none, they will not get significantly better and will be unstable: not candidates for healthy relationships.

You haven't thought of beginning to exercise and have proper nutrition habits since lack of both makes it worse even makes many humans depressed with destructive thoughts acording to science within psychology?
@crazy8000 I do yoga everyday and I take vitamins that were recommended to me by my doctor. I simply have a chemical imbalance in my brain. Don't speak about something you know so little about
No one is responsible of that.If that person really wants to do suicide they do it when they are ready no matter what.
What if they felt like they had nothing to live for and I end up being what they live for?
I have and that is why I clicked no, but I would try to help them. And over the course of 2 or 3 months they get better then maybe I would date them.
@fionaglenanne And what makes you think you're qualified to help a clinically, severely depressed person?
I'm not... but my father is a psychiatrist
@fionaglenanne Well your father isn't going to be dating the person, so you're not really equipped to handle a severely depressed individual on your own, other than to be as "nice" as you can be. Unfortunately, that alone doesn't address the nature of someone's deep depression.
@fionaglenanne I understand wanting to help, but it's a very, very complex thing to tackle.
Some aren't negative. just passive and lacks own drive. also have a tendency to sleep and rest a lot.
@crazy8000 it’s still draining energy that I don’t want to be associated with, so no.
I know.That's why I avoid to be with people that has it when they has it. also isolated myself when I have exhaustion depression due to to little sleep.
Ah I understand.
sorry, but that sounds very sad. Maybe you could help each other in different ways!
@fionaglenanne That's what I meant!
Depends little on what kind of depression and how that person works.But the energy part is spot on.They get a different way of seeing thing and tends to become narrow minded, also tends to get pure judgment and decision making. very common with selfishness. even harder to see what they are and contribute with.Little to many tend to look for quick sex often. especially female's.
It would make me feel stressed and then snappy. I’d feel really bad for them. It would probably be a toxic relationship.
Oops I misread the questionYes, I would, if they acknowledged the problem and were working on themselves
wow look how split this is : O
