How Do You Date With Depression?

How Do You Date With Depression?

While I was in college I had my first and only girlfriend. She cheated on me and I cuf her off. Now I can't seem to get close to people and feel that opening up is a invitation to getting hurt. I want to try again, but I lose interest when I get ignored...

It took me almost 4 years to get close to someone after my divorce. Didn't trust anyone of the opposite sex! Period! Then I started dating again. After meeting several that seemed to be worse than my ex, I finally found love again! It took almost a year before I could fully trust him, but he was aware of my history, so was very patient! I'm so glad I finally trusted again! Wasn't easy, but definitely worth it!

well before you open up to any girls just get to know them first like a few dates or movie nights just start to get to know them before you start getting close.x

Do you start your conversation with this? Why " not take things slowly life should not be an oprn book; what about the preamble; come on ppl stop wearing your hearts on your sleeves; I have kicked when down but I know that I am worth something just don't know what; but I won't quit!

After I left my boyfriend of 4 years about 4 months ago.. I haven't tried dating anyone or be friends with anyone because I feel like they won't understand.. And when I was younger I wouldn't date because of the fact it was hard on me to understand what was going on with me because at the time in my life my parents didn't believe in depression or bipolar or anything like that they would just say it's a bad day you will be fine.. But when the doctors finally told them what I had and gave them books to read to understand what was going on with me then they would help but with dating I don't anymore .....
