ADHD in Women
Relationship help! I get bored.
This is my first post here, thanks for taking the time to help out!
First off, I’m 21 years old and was officially diagnosed with adult ADHD about a year ago. Recently I’ve been actually reading on it, trying to understand it better, and I’m learning so much (especially from you guys) about how this affects every part of my life! So I thought I’d turn to you.
I’m wondering if anyone out there has experienced this same thing and how they got through the ‘lulls’ of a relationship. I feel like every time I date someone new, I’m head over heels for them, thinking that they’re the one, only to get bored with them a couple months later.
Well it happened again, I met this great guy who is really good to me and treats me better than I’ve ever been treated, but lately I feel conversations go nowhere, and I don’t ever get the feeling that I miss him or want to be with him and we’ve only been dating like 2 or 3 short months. The other part is that he doesn’t feel this way at all! He feels like everything is just perfect.
Before him I was seeing another guy for close to a year and he didn’t get boring to me so quickly. But I ended it a while ago, and now I can’t help but think that the more I learn about ADHD, the more I think he’s got it too, and all of the problems I had with him stem from our untreated ADHD. And so now I can’t stop thinking about how maybe I ended it prematurely and we could fix this…but I just started this new thing with the nicest guy. It kills me to break his heart! I’m caught in a pickle!!
Any advice or experience you could offer would be so helpful. I really am lost and have no other people to turn to. Thanks guys.
