It’s not easy these days for the single people wanting to be in a relationship. In a healthy relationship. I believe trust is and always will be an issue in these times of social media and wreckage that can come from that. Trust is not like it used to be. Before the Social Media Boom, dating and meeting up with other people in dating sites meant something special. Somewhere along the line it lost it’s meaning. I believe trust means just that. Either you trust or you don’t. Everybody has a gut feeling and you need to trust that. I would say just follow you heart but let your gut lead the way. It will never steer you wrong. It’s a part of you and there is no reason that a part of you would turn against you.

I need to mention at this time I don’t have much to say or will condone dating sites at this time. Dating means exposing yourself. How long do you think you can hide your Bipolar disorder. Especially Bipolar 1people.

You’re not imagining it: mental illness is on the rise. It may be that it’s just being diagnosed more. Or maybe we live in such confusing crazy times and pushes us a little closer to the edge.

If you’re single, it can be overwhelming to make the effort to experience dating and find someone you can be with. Intimacy is important to our health and happiness.

Bipolar disorder is more prevalent these days. In any given year, 2.6 percent of US adults will have an episode and in 2.2 percent, it will be considered “severe.”

Manipulation is a huge concern of mine. The worst part of being manipulated in a relationship is that quite often you don’t even know it’s happening. Manipulative people twist your thoughts, actions, wants and desires into something tht better suits how thdy see the world and they mold you into someone that serves their own purposes. It’s a little scary.

Here are 5 signs of manipulation to look out for to make sure it’s not happening to you. The scary thing is you probably dont’ even know it’s happening.

1. He makes you feel guilty — for everything. Manipulation always starts with guilt. If he can convince you to feel guilty for your actions (even when you’ve done nothing wrong), then he knows you’ll be more willing to do what he says.

2. He forces his insecurities on you.Manipulators will often force their own insecurities on you in an effort to control how you react towards him. “I’ve been cheated on before and that’s why I don’t want you to have any male friends. You can understand that, right?” Yes, of course, you can understand that (and you should be conscious of his insecurities)

3. He makes you doubt yourself.Want to know why it’s so easy for him to be manipulated? Because he’s mind-f*cked you to the point where you no longer trust yourself. That’s right, manipulators take your insecurities and use them against you. They consistently point out what you’re doing “wrong” and how they could have done it better.

4. He makes you responsible for his own emotions. Manipulators are ironic in the sense that they spend quite a bit of time making you feel as if you can’t think for yourself but then turn around and make you responsible for all of their emotions. If they feel sad, it’s probably because you made them feel that way. If they’re angry, well, you had better check yourself because you obviously did something wrong.

5. He makes you believe that you want what he wants. We all start out relationships with requirements and deal breakers — it’s natural. As you start to blend two lives, compromises are made. What’s NOT normal: When you have to completely set aside what you want and need in an effort to appease your partner. If you start to realize your partner’s needs are being met far more often than yours are, you might be married to a manipulator.
