Should you even try to seduce a woman with depression? People with depression want to date and have relationships just like anyone else, so depression shouldn’t stop you in your tracks. But it will bring you some extra challenges that you should be prepared for. Let’s take a look at those now.
– Check your reasons
If you’ve met a girl who you’d like to get to know better but who also happens to have depression then read on. On the other hand, if you have your eye on a woman with depression because you think she’ll be an ‘easy catch’ or she will sympathize your own depression then you should think very carefully before going any further. Not only could you make her depression worse, you could find yourself in a difficult relationship that makes you unhappy, too.
Be honest with yourself: do you need to work on your own happiness or self esteem? If so, do this before you think about seducing a woman with depression.
Now, find out what it’s like to live with depression. A quick Google search will provide you with a wealth of information on how a woman with depression might need to take care of herself, how it could make her feel and the signals you might unintentionally give her that would mean she backs away from you. This will help you anticipate what may be ahead and plan how to handle situations before they happen.
– Don’t expect her to discuss her depression on a first date
Your date might not discuss her depression the first time you meet. Let her bring it up in her own time, although if your relationship becomes more serious then then you really do need to discuss it. If you can, wait until her depression comes up naturally in the conversation.
– When she first talks to you about her depression…
When a woman first talks about her depression, make sure you let her talk about it. Don’t brush it aside, say it doesn’t matter or even worse, get nervous and make a joke about it. Listen to what she has to say and – after giving her time to speak – tell her you understand and you care about her.
– Be patient
It’s not easy for someone with depression to just put on a happy face. Chances are that you won’t be able to ‘fix things’ and make her feel better, either. Instead, you’ll need to wait for her to feel better in her own time. If she doesn’t want to meet you one day then don’t be offended. If she wants to go out but wants to go somewhere quieter or more low-key than you then you will need to respect her feelings.
There’s no doubt that depression can have a huge impact on anyone’s life, but a woman with depression will still be a person with hopes, dreams and desires. With patience and understanding you will get to know her and enjoy your time together, whether that’s a single date or a longer relationship.
