As someone who experiences mental illness dating has always been somewhat of a challenge. Don’t get me wrong it’s doable, and I have had a few romantic relationships over the years, but it does make it a bit more challenging. If you’re in a good space and fairly stable then that obviously makes dating a lot easier.
This subject has come to mind as I have started seeing someone who also has a mental illness. We get on really well and have a lot in common. So far so good. I can see a future with her. We are still in the early stages of getting to know each other, but the connection is definitely there for both of us. We talk daily without fail. This leads me to ask…
Can two people who both suffer from mental illness be in a relationship together?
I believe the answer is yes depending on maturity, personal growth, self-awareness, and a commitment from both people to make it work. Others may have a different point of view. I would be interested in your perspective?
