About a month ago I met a man on an online dating site. We started phone conversations almost immediately. Those conversations could last for up to 3 hours per night. In this time I feel we know more about one another than I did in a 20 year marriage. I like him very much. Unfortunately we have not met in person. He was very upfront with me and told me he was bipolar. I realize, after living with an aunt and an ex boyfriend who were bipolar, that even though the intentions are good, even on meds, for some reason the disease makes it hard to follow through. I also know not to push things because they can retreat under pressure. So, I remain patient and know that there will be that good day when a meeting will happen. He had only been on lithium for. Two weeks when we met so maybe the drug is new to him. Excuses, excuses, I know. I feel I should give this a chance. That its worth it. I am not naive, and realize there will be good and bad days. I hope I can be so grateful for those good days that I can deal with he bad. What do you think?
