Should I date a woman who is on antidepressants?
Should you date a woman who is on antidepressants?
Yes… if you have no problem being around a woman who cannot control her own moods and negative thinking. You’re willing to go against the odds and help make her happy again. And she’s very definitely on a path to recovery.
No… if you do have a problem being around a woman who lacks the ability to regulate her emotions, and has turned to pills for the answer to her negative thinking.
My advice is to never, ever, date a woman who is on antidepressants. Sure there are cases where she will quickly heal her thinking and likely victimhood status, but they are rare, gentlemen.
I just asked a girl that I’ve been going out with if she’s on antidepressants, and she admitted that she is (she’s on Buproprian). For me, it’s an instant deal-killer. She will find out that I am no longer interested in dating her tonight.
I have noticed over the years that women who are on antidepressant medications are negative thinkers in general. Antidepressant medications like Zoloft, Lexapro, and Prozac are band-aids to the larger problem of dysfunctional thinking. A woman on meds is a rescue project. Are you up to the task? Many men are. In fact, many men get high levels of esteem from helping women get back on track in their lives. We like to be needed by women. To fix their problems.
But be forewarned: it can be quite toxic to men to deeply involve themselves with depressed women. These women have the ability to suck your positive energy right out of you, and to drag you into their drama-filled world. A pill is a band-aid, as it covers the symptoms– not the cause– of their faulty thinking. But if you do decide to date a woman on antidepressants, ask her what it is specifically about her thinking that will allow her to cease taking a drug in the shortest amount of time. In other words, what’s her specific plan for getting off the drug?
–Bonus tip: It’s sad that these women never were taught how to control their thoughts. In my experience, most depressed women I’ve encountered had “Daddy” issues (father estrangement or abandonment). A strong father has a huge influence in crafting emotionally balanced women.
–Bonus tip #2: Is her mother mentally balanced? If not, this is a huge red flag! Especially if the mother is close to her.
