I have recently mey this amazing and beautiful woman. We have been taking things very slowly. The relationship had been going so smoothly and I was really starting to fall for her. The very 1st night I met her she told me she was "heavily" medicated for bipolar disorder. I didn't think much of it as I am not educated on this disorder. I can't tell you how many great things she said about me and how good she made me feel. Then, a week ago we were suppose to meet for dinner...I get a call 30min before the date and she says something came up and she wouldn't make it. She called me back later that night and we made a lunch date for the next day.....she didn't show up. Now it has been a week and I haven't heard from her once!!! I so am confused!! Is this normal behavior for this disorder? I am having so much trouble trying to comprehend why she wouldn't at least give me 1 call telling me what the heck is going on!!! One of her friends called me to say hello and I asked her what was up. Her friend had no idea...she said she hadn't spoken with her for sometime either. The friend said she was surprised because the last time she spoke with this girl I am dating she wouldn't stop talking about how excited she was for our dinner date that she cancled on me. Please help! Thanks in advance!
This is totally normal for bipolar people. I do it to my friends all the time. I've done it to guys before too. You may have lost her. Try to get in touch with her again, but not too often. She'll probably not appreciate feeling stalked. Sadly, you may have to expect that you'll never see her again. I know I've said a lot of things to guys that I know have gotten their egos up and then once I'm no longer manic, I can't believe I said the things I did.
First and foremost....read up on this disorder asap so you have a better feel for what your dealing with. The behavior is typical......either she does not want to expose you to her moods or has changed her mind. My suggestion is to leave this alone......read some of my other post to get a better feel for what I went through. Be prepared for a rollercoaster/stormy type of relationship....this disorder almost makes relationships impossible to have. Good luck to you.
