Dating someone who is bi polor

Ending any relationship is difficult, and deciding to end a relationship because of a person’s mental condition only complicates things further. While treatments for bipolar disorder can help control the condition, it will be a constant battle throughout his or her life. Michael Brodsky, medical director of Bridges to Recovery—a crisis stabilization center with several locations in California—said while people with bipolar disorder are known to be creative, charismatic, energetic, and inspirational, they can also be unpredictable, promiscuous, inattentive, and self-focused.Some of these qualities make it hard on a relationship, so a person must weigh whether he or she wants stability over excitement, he said. Brodsky said there’s no perfect time to end a relationship with someone who is bipolar.Their condition is serious, and it’s difficult to be with someone who doesn’t want to get better.

With these symptoms, are any of you familiar with it being related to bi-polar disorder? I'm not even going to bring it up to him because I don't want to deal with what his reaction might be. But at the same time if he does have the disorder, I can't help but to feel bad for him and wish he would go get help. It didn't appear until about three years into the relationship. As for getting help, it isn't going to do any good. I'm sorry to say bi polar people can be be very exciting and charming.. As a couple, he always avoided those "talks" and gets really angry even when I'm not even trying to argue - Once he is angry, he can completely isolate himself and not return any calls no matter the situation or even see me for that matter.

Help does nothing until the person admits the problem and wants help for themselves. With these symptoms, are any of you familiar with it being related to bi-polar disorder?
