Couples With One ADHD Partner
Help me find love in my ADHD boyfriend
I have been with my boyfriend for nearly 12 months but it’s been such a struggle keeping up with him.At first I didn’t notice how much he struggled but now that’s all he seems to do.He doesn’t seem to be keeping his word on most things .It has become annoying having to remind him constantly to do things because he simply forgets.It is difficult to have a a conversation without him becoming distracted.
When I first met him he caught my attention and we began to date within months.I can no longer tell wether I love him because of all the arguments.
I have asked him to go look for a job and he still has not found one.If I don’t tell him to go eat won’t do so and that just really angers me.I suggested the idea of learning how to cook since he does not know but he got mad at me.He said he didn’t know how to cook so I replied back saying you can look up recipes online or even better buy a book.He became more angered when he did not get his way,that being that there were no other possibilities of learning.which has ultimately become his only response there is no way.
I don’t know how to love him any more because he doesn’t see how much I struggle already.he simply apologizes over and over again but doesn’t learn from his mistakes.Watching the people see him struggle and make fun of him saying he practically lives in a cave and doesn’t know a thing,I do not disagree because it seems true but it difficult hearing it over and over again.
What should I do?
He proposed last month
