Depression given up on dating

Rated 3.95/5 based on 926 customer reviews

It can make him not want to have sex as often or seem less satisfied with it, psychiatrist Grant H. Remember, this problem does not mean he isn’t attracted to you sexually.

Because depression tends to affect people’s sense of worth, it can make him believe he does not deserve love.

“In this emotional space, dating becomes a chore,” said therapist Paul Hokemeyer.

“It’s viewed as yet another problem rather than a solution to free you from depression’s parasitic grasp.” If you feel the man you are dating is afflicted with this attitude, be patient.

Show him he deserves love that will free him and make his life better rather than becoming another burden. If any man with depression had a choice, he would choose to be rid of it.

One of the most hurtful things you can do to a man with depression is say it is his fault, that he could choose to be better if his will or character was stronger.
