I recently have gotten involved with a guy who is bipolar. I really like this guy and I thought he felt the same about me. In the beginning he was calling me two or three times a day, making special trips to come have lunch with me and to see me at night. Now he has backed off and acts like he no longer wants to be around me. I want to know how much of this is the bipolar illness and how much of this is that he has decided he doesn't want to have a relationship with me? Let me explain this. He recently found out that he is bipolar and went through the program. He told me that he is not where he wants to be emotionally. He wants to be stronger. I understand that and I want to support him. He knows that I support him and the bipolar illness. I have gone through great lengths to understand the illness and to try and find out how to be supportive in the best way for him and myself. With the relationship being this new, do I look at this as being the bipolar illness and wait on him or do I move on with my life? I really do like this guy and want to be supportive, but I also don't want to wait around on someone who really doesn't want me. Can someone please help me with this situation? Has anyone else been through this?
