We did agree to continue as friends, and to hang out in the future.He is a good guy, and while I am not willing to take on a romantic relationship with him, I would love to work on just being friends.He inquired about the specifics of my last serious relationship, and I said I did not want to go into it.Really I felt like it would be too much information at that point, considering I did not intend on dating him in the future.Are you dating a bipolar man, or have you ever been in a relationship with a person, affected by the disorder also known as manic depression?Last night, I went out with a man in Raleigh from Match.com, who is attractive, creative, successful, extremely intelligent - and bipolar -- which I found out on our first date.Today he is trying to act like it was a misdiagnosis, and he is just a stereotypical Aries.
Luckily, the majority of my friends are extremely upbeat, "glass half full" people.
Perhaps I am judgmental, but I simply know I am not equipped to act as a pseudo therapist, for a person who needs the guidance of a trained professional.
Respect and Personal Choices I will say I actually respected my date more for telling me that he is bipolar on our first date.
I am moody at times, but my mild mood swings are boringly predictable - hunger and PMS.
Making Contact When I contacted my date today, I again stressed that I had a very nice time with him and I thanked him for a great date.
