Dating a man with ocd
I went for a meal with him the other day and told him about my research, and that I know he has ROCD.
I told him I now knew the tornent his mind put him under, and wanted to be the woman who understands him and supports him through it. He broke down, and said he would do everything to overcome it, but I said that as far as I can see, it can't be overcome, but we can learn to live with it together.
Although those with OCD are very good at hiding their symptoms, I think beginning a relationship based on dishonesty is never a good idea.
Your partner will realize is up, and by this point, you will likely have already told a good number of lies to cover up your OCD.
He begged me to understand that he loved me like no other (he always says he loves me and has never loved any of his previous partners, and I believe him).
It would be wonderful to hear from sufferers and partners alike, to arm me with as much information as I can to ensure that my relationship survives.
Hello everyone, I am new to this forum, and have to say that stumbling upon it has been like emerging from the darkest of tunnels into bright sunshine.
I've read the posts with interest, nodding my head until my neck ached, and feeling a growing sense if relief with each one.
He has told me he doesn't trust me, and questioned my love for him, despite the fact I have never given him any reason to think this, and have done so much to show him my love.
We had an awful argument a week ago after which I resolved to not go back to him.
