Man on man dating
If any man with depression had a choice, he would choose to be rid of it.
One of the most hurtful things you can do to a man with depression is say it is his fault, that he could choose to be better if his will or character was stronger.
You should leave any man who is not doing enough to make the relationship work, and men who suffer from depression are no exception.

Without excusing the behavior, be patient and understand this person is not at the core of who your man is. You Don’t Need to Stay With Him Protecting your mental health is more important than being with him, no matter how much it seems like he has become everything to you.

Dating makes the situation even more difficult because there is more vulnerability.When you date a man with depression, it can become a struggle to maintain a relationship with him and protect your own mental health.The experience is not fundamentally different than dating someone without a mental illness, but there are issues that are more likely to arise.“In this emotional space, dating becomes a chore,” said therapist Paul Hokemeyer.“It’s viewed as yet another problem rather than a solution to free you from depression’s parasitic grasp.” If you feel the man you are dating is afflicted with this attitude, be patient.
