Ocd and dating

Rated 3.92/5 based on 681 customer reviews

There are, however, questions I feel should always be considered: When (not if) should you tell your significant other about your obsessive-compulsive disorder?

Although those with OCD are very good at hiding their symptoms, I think beginning a relationship based on dishonesty is never a good idea.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it seems like a good time to bring up the topic of OCD and dating.

In my opinion, as soon as you realize your relationship is likely more than a one or two date thing, it’s time to discuss your OCD. That’s a tough question, and of course each person will need to say something different.

Being in an intimate or even just a dating relationship with someone with any chronic illness, including OCD, means that you need to be up to speed with respect to the symptoms and treatment of the illness.

On the surface, many of the obsessions and compulsions that go along with OCD can seem strange, illogical or even scary.

Although any intimate relationship has its ups and downs, dating someone who is affected by a chronic mental illness such as OCD can present some additional challenges as well as opportunities for growth.

Above all, it is important to remember that an illness is what a person has, not who they are.

    visit Bongs on your way to Kona, ask Linda about the Islands best sights ... Touching on lava viewing....there's a lot of options it seems now that the "public" area is closed off to those on foot. The island is so big and there are so many things to do, you'll make yourself crazy trying to fit it all in.
