Approaching mental health and dating
Laura Yates explains why you should consider tackling it head on. Dating with mental health challenges can be a highly sensitive topic. So, I wanted to share a few ways that you can enjoy dating and find love without feeling that you need to hide your mental health concerns. Take your time and only tell them as much as you feel comfortable with. Get to know them and look for signs that compassion, care, and being a good listener are qualities that they display and value.
