So before you embark on a new relationship, we’re giving you some tips.
#1 Sometimes, you just can’t help One of the most frustrating things to come to terms with is that sometimes, you can’t do a damn thing to make your lover happy.
Bottom line: you’re going to get frustrated, and that’s okay. More than likely, your girlfriend already knows that exercise promotes feel-good, depression-fighting oxytocin.

Depression isn’t a sexy facet of your mate’s makeup, it’s just hard.
Dating someone with depression means that it’s not always romantic.
Symptoms of depression include a general disinterest for life, self-loathing, irritability, lethargy, mood swings, hopelessness, reckless behavior, and loss of interest in friends, family, and loved ones. Dating someone with depression can be fine if you are informed and educated about it.
The only way you can give the best support possible to your lover is to be the happiest, healthiest version of yourself there is.
When you feel whole, then it is much easier dating someone with depression.

And at times, you’re going to have some less-than-loving thoughts about your significant other.
