Recognizing Signs of Mental Illness While Dating

You have a fond interest of someone you met on or offline. The last thing you are thinking about while dating this person is whether he or she has a mental illness. Yet, there are many people around the world who are adults suffering from unresolved childhood abuses. From feelings of rejection, bitterness and rebellion to hidden resentment, hatred and retaliation, a date might enter into a relationship with one who is still battling with all sorts of mental challenges. This person might be trying to cope with the aftermath of a breakup, an accident that has damaged some part of the brain, surgery, dating violence, or childhood issues.

You will know when someone is in your presence with a dark side depending on how sensitive you are to negative energy sources. The person may reveal to you various personalities that are illogical when conversing. He or she may at times, cry, curse, or become visibly disturbed for no apparent reason. You might find yourself having to calm the individual down over matters that most would not react. You may even desire to leave the person’s presence because he or she feels as if they are weighing you down spiritually.

Some single men and women might notice those who are divorced or widowed with children seem to have troubled spirits and tend to be a challenge to deal with while others who have had much turmoil in their lives can be quite impatient, rude or arrogant. Depending on the situation and how the person has dealt with it will determine just how much one will have to put up with while dating the individual. The divorced or widowed typically have been through a tough time in their lives, so if he or she has not adequately gave his or herself time to heal, it will be difficult to be in a relationship with him or her.

You will want to pay attention to personality disorders that frequently show up in some people while dating such as: many obsessions with people or things (like food), a frequent desire to be alone more than being with people or vice versa, a frequent need to be complimented or touched, anger outbursts, problems with speech or conversation that rambles, staring without blinking, restlessness, wandering eyes, body odors, substance abuse, and shocking behaviors.

Some people who have an undiagnosed personality disorder will not believe that anything about them is peculiar, wild or crazy. They rather believe that everyone else is strange, but them. If you should encounter a stubborn and/or prideful person such as this, create distance. They most likely heard about their issues from others, but refused to deal with them. Although it can be tempting to save the troubled person, don’t, instead, direct him or her to some professional help. One must have much patience, love, understanding, and finances to assist someone with a mental illness.

Once you have identified more than one disorder in a date, be polite to this person, ask a few personal questions related to childhood or a previous relationship and watch his or her reaction. You will want to strongly think about whether you will be able to deal with your date’s mental issues before going out on anymore future dates.
