    Cursed Heart......

    Nope, but I have in the past, I couldn't quite pinpoint what the disorder was though, I think he had bi-polar disorder which I didn't find as bad as the other illnesses. If somebody does go that route, we all know there wil never be a dull moment:hammer: lol

    Yes they are very colorful people! What was your experience like when he had his moods?what was it like when he didn't? I noticed alot of people are bipolar and don't even know it! I have noticed that outside of their illness they are very sweet and loving and extremely intelligent. I think trauma and genetics play a key role in this illness.It has never been proven of what causes it!

    Cursed heart.......

    I think another term for bi-polar can be: "a hard knocks life"..lol. This guy burned the roof of my car with some white hot coals from a barbeque we were having, then turned right around and tried to cool it off with a 40 oz. he was drinking!!! That's just a beginner.........I had to leave that alone,:ref: that one only lasted as long as the roof of my car burnt:bye:

    Well, I would want the person to be honest upfront about it rather than it coming out later in the relationship, particularly if it is something that is a recurring thing.

    Would I continue dating someone like that? It depends on how bad their condition is and how much I was initially attracted to them.

    What if you loved him and he was perfect for you in every other way?
    How bad is too bad?

    Well, if it's to the point that I thought he might be abusive and/or if we're arguing so much that there is no joy in the relationship any more.
