I am new to this site and have been dating a man for 3 months that has a bipolar disorder. He has given me two books to read to better understand what he goes through. My heart is broken because I don't think relationships usually work out for him. He was married for 7 years. Lived alone now for 17. Is there any hope for me with him? Or how is the best way to help him. I am trying to figure out what type he has. What's a good way to open up this discussion.
