Dating site for people with mental illness

In fact, like often attracts like or its counterpart.

For instance, unhealthy relationships are often build on the primal exchanges of a narcissist and a codependent.

In fact, there’s a little crazy inside of all of us.

When going to school to get my Masters in counseling I was warned by my teachers that when reading the DSM—the bible of mental health disorders—I would crazy because it talks about behaviors we all display at one point or another.

Again, there is a spectrum of functional on one side and dysfunctional on the other.

Mood disorders are different than personality disorders in that they can be more transient.

I’m as confident in myself as ever and I know what I can and can’t do.

I think that dating is something that I might be able to do.

In most of my dating encounters the subject of schizophrenia may have never even been broached, but it’s scary to imagine what would’ve happened had it been.

I don’t consider this a bad thing and I’m always up for listening, but I just kind of wish it had gone another way. I will listen to you for hours and give you my perspective if you ask for it, but at this point I’d rather cuddle with someone than listen to their history of drug abuse and emotional anxiety.

There also exists in the mental illness community the idea that people like us can’t possibly date non-mentally ill people unless they’re psychiatric doctors or nurses or unless they have some history with mental illness in their families.

In situations where the ice has broken and they know, though, it quickly devolves from a date to a several-hour-long explanation of all of their anxieties and drug problems and psychological history simply because they trust me with the information.

Once that happens, it’s hard to find someone attractive, and whether I like it or not a friendship, perhaps dysfunctional at that, has been formed.
