She made me out to be a cheater cause my Facebook activity showed me liking random video posts and a friend request like two a girl a thought knew. I wish I had done my research prior to my involvement with him instead of learning as I went along and although I know not all bipolarâs are the same I would like to post the warning signs I ignored and say that if anyone here is considering getting involved with someone with this illness be prepared to face a lifetime of pain.

As mentioned above, they must have a true diagnosis of Bipolar. He also invested over 25k into our relationship, supporting my daughter and me for several months before we moved in with him, bought us both so many gifts and loaned me money for my business.
We decided that our various challenges would serve as a good example for our children. This is not fair to me, and certainly not before the holidays! Therefore, you must forget about the awesome you had. He says he still loves me but he loves her more.

I was deeply into this women and wish the best for her. She confessed she hit past boyfriends but of course, I thought I could control her. I tend to think there is not one healthy woman in her right mind that would get involved with someone that is bipolar. You are also being very respectful of her.
