Where to begin??? Well, I'm 39 and I've been living with my bf for two weeks now. We met online and I moved in with him just a week after that. I've spent my entire dating life rushing into relationships with men because I feel "lost" alone and I've always been so desperate to be loved and in love. I've been used and abused many times along the way...no surprise there as I've had low, or no self-esteem all my life. The guy I'm with now is a total genteman...opens my car door every time, speaks to me with respect, etc. etc. But I'm not gonna sit here and say that he is perfect or that our relationship is perfect because it isn't. He is annoyed by things my disorders have me doing and vice versa. I'm just scared to death that it will be the ruin of us, because I have finally found someone who isn't abusive or otherwise a creep. Any thoughts from anyone? Does anyone else here date a bipolar person? His is type 1 and he's a rapid cycler, btw. Thanks, Catt
