Boys and depression

So I have been talking to this guy for a few weeks now and it is going really well. But some depression has been thrown into the mix and that is for sure shaken me up. Struggling while starting in this new relationship, with no expectations, can be up and down. You know when I’m feeling indifferent it effects how I approach things with him. The racing thoughts soo contribute to me overthinking every little thing. I know this is just a bump in my recovery but it is so frustrating since good things like this are coming into my life. Thoughts?

    Ooooh new relationships are always exciting and interesting. Im glad that it’s going well. I think you should def continue to take things slow and keep the expectations to a minimum and if possible, have none at all until you really know that you really are feeling this guy. It’s so normal for the things you’re dealing with personally to start to interfere with the relationship so just remember to focus on you first. Try not to read so deeply into things and keep yourself busy with other things. Im glad that you know its only a bump and you’ll def overcome it. Great mindset to have.

    I agree with Vee Ruiz. No expectations is key. Look out for yourself. You are your own top priority. Everyone else should come second. It’s okay to be selfish and play it cool until it’s official that you two have mutual feelings. I wish you luck on your personal endeavors and have a wonderful day! 🙂

    communication is the key here, Boys do not know how to approach a woman that is when the woman need to step up and tell the man no I do not like the way this is done or was done so need to come correct and approach me the right way or no
