Would you get involved with someone if they had a mental disorder?

Now, almost all of us have personally known someone with some form of mental disorder, whether it be dementia, bulimia, ADHD, bi-polar, depression etc Now would you be able to find it within yourself to have a long term relationship with a suffer of such an illness. Personally, I think i could, if I find that i have fallen in love with that individual, and that person also has strong feelings for me, and we both are accepting of the limitations of our relationship as a consequence of the illness, then I think we could form a reasonably stable relationship. What about you?

to be honest, i wouldn't let myself from somebody who has a mental disorder. it will just be hard for the both of us to fight for our relationship especially that he can't fight for his own deficiency.

hi yourlankanfriend..^^ for your question, i am really doubtful of myself if i am able to love him/her or jus sympathy on him/her. it is hard to separate for this two feelings. because not only we have to face ourselves, but also the others, and the problem of environment,lots of the things have to face before our feeling to each others is as deep as can challenge those problems. for me, it is hard to maintain. every relationship maybe start with a sweet and romantic feeling but the type of love start with a bitter and painful and trouble feeling,indeed. anyway, i admire your characterister to able to face those problems^6 have a nice day
