Dating a depressed woman
It really depends on the severity and on his own behaviour.
But I'll never again date someone who denies he has depression or refuses to treat it.
And I'm all over the place with my degree haha.
I have a general psychology degree with concentrations in forensics (I thought that's what I wanted to do when I started) and clinical (which I have gross amounts of experience in).
You'll feel like shit for being hypocritical, trust me, I've been there.
consider it if he has a handle on it, because my friend with depression is doing great at not letting it control his life.However, I would be very hesitant to date someone with depression again.Yeah that's a whole other ballgame right there.I had depression for a very long time and I try to encourage him by explaining how things improved for me after treatment, but he seems to think it's just not an option for him. I refused treatment for years, saying that it was "just the way I am" or "what I deserve" or insisting it would go away if I could just get whatever was bothering me at the time to go away.I also told other people not to worry about it because it "didn't affect them."On the other hand, I want to scream when he tells me the same things I told myself, because things could be so much better for him because it's just "the way he is," it's something that he could work on and fix. Even if it did somehow magically only affect him, I wish he would believe he deserved better for himself, because he does. :/Here are some ways his untreated depression has affected/affects me: I'm not trying to say this is our entire relationship or anything.
