Although it is not recommended for two people who have Bipolar Disorder, or any other mental illness, to “hook up”, you can’t always stop love. These two may be the only ones who understand each other. This blog post will focus on the positives of dating someone with a similar mental health diagnosis.
One positive note is you may get a lot of alone time when your partner goes off on a manic phase. I can see it now: “Where is your boyfriend/ girlfriend?” You answer: “Oh, I don’t know really. Off on some mood swing somewhere.”
Speaking of mood swing, that would make a great tagline for a dating profile:
“Bipolar person seeks like-minded person to go on nice, romantic mood swings with.”
You never know, it could be a match made in heaven. As long as one of the two, or both, don’t have anger issues. Anger issues always kill everything.
On a final note, you haven’t lived until you’ve had bipolar sex. That always makes it worth it.
