Couples With One ADHD Partner
How To Deal with Embarrassment of Social Behavior
I recently started dating someone that has adult ADHD. We get along, share many of the same values, want the same things, but I’m having a difficult time getting over certain aspects of his ADHD, mainly how he acts in social situations. He is very loud, sometimes inappropriate, and seemingly feels the need to talk to anyone and everyone when we’re out in public. For me, where I don’t like to be the center of attention, it can get to be pretty embarrassing and uncomfortable. I struggle with this because I also realize it’s my own issues of caring too much what others think. But it’s also causing me to be nervous about introducing him to my co-workers, friends and family and I realize that’s not good. Does anyone have any experience or advice for this type of an issue?
