    1. Because "scary crazy people share your horror stories" probably.

    2. ... but he's a really great guy.
      Being depressed/anxious doesn't make you abrasive or unreasonable. I would say the opposite actually. It makes you less argumentative because you don't see the point in arguing, don't feel like you opinions are worth something etc.
      Our relationship was very smooth and he was eons more considerate than most of the people I know.

    3. @1b. It's like you are describing my ex. I didn't even know he was depressed until after we were no longer together. But yeah such a smooth relationship and he never saw the point in arguing either

  2. I dated a guy for two years who had learning disabilities and severe genetic depression -- which he wouldn't take his medication for. When he was on his pills, we had a great relationship. When we wasn't, he'd fail classes, not get out of bed, contribute nothing to the relationship and lie constantly to me. I don't blame him for much, I only blame him for not being on top of his meds and going months without them, making him drop out of school and move back in with his parents, terminating our relationship.

    He's an amazing person with an unfortunate disease. I miss him.

    1. Being sad. So crazy. Much insane.

  6. I dated someone with addictions (alcohol and certain drugs). It took it's toll on the relationship; I couldn't handle it anymore because he had no intention of facing his addictions, so I had to end it.

  7. A relationship, yes. Dating, I'm not entirely sure as it was a rather strange story, but I'll say yes.

    1. Same. Jumped right into a relationship and will probably be the strangest thing I will ever experience in my life.

    2. What happened 7.a?

      Mine is still strange as they send me veiled comments, questions, on this site. My question to that person is what do you want?

    3. Maybe he or she really wants to you to give them a second chance, or maybe they're just seriously confused? Gee, that was hard.

    4. 7b - ooooooh, that's so awkward. I hate finding posts about me on here. It's just mystifying as to why someone would not only make your issues public and feel comfortable talking about it with strangers, but not comfortable enough to discuss the matter with YOU in person.

  8. This so far is pretty encouraging for someone with anxiety and depression. I always thought I was a nightmare to be with because my actions just never made sense to them....
