I'm currently a Junior in high school. My guy friend and I have been talking for a few months now and are close to becoming boyfriend and girlfriend. I've been struggling with depression, bipolar disorder and eating disorders since my Freshman year. I'm afraid to tell him because I don't want him to think any differently of me, but I feel like I should tell him about it in order to feel closer to him. Should I tell him before or after we go out, and how should I tell him? Thank you for listening
Hmmm.. well you do have the right idea. He does deserve to know. With my boyfriend I had let him know about my issues when it came up such as if i was crying/had a mental breakdown. But I’m not sure if thats the best way to do things with your future bf. Maybe you could just tell him the way you just told me. Let him know that youre not trying to scare him away but that you just believe that he has the right to know. So I’d say to tell him after. If you tell him before then it might scare him away. BUT if he’s a good guy and cares about you then he’d probably want to know beforehand so he doesn’t feel left out. Sorry if this wasnt helpful.. p.s. if you ever need someone to talk to you know im here <3
