Dating a girl with schizophrenia

Image Source: Relationships are full of ups and downs, but what would happen if one partner was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia is, according to Merriam-Webster, “a very serious mental illness in which someone cannot think or behave normally and often experiences delusions”.

This can cause lots of problems with their social life including relationships.

So how exactly does schizophrenia affect someone’s “love life”? Absolutely, people with schizophrenia are not incapable of having a relationship, it just takes more work from both sides of the relationship.

Schizophrenia greatly affects the person’s social skills.

They will usually begin to shrink back and not want to talk to anyone.

There will be vast changes in their behavior and the way that they take care of themselves.

This generally means things such as not completing everyday tasks; dressing and bathing.

Then, once you’ve passed that phase, it’s on to really getting to know the other person.

You know you’re superficially compatible, but what about the important things—values, life goals, political beliefs?

Let’s say you care about this person enough to consider spending the rest of your life with them.
