Just finished a "pull" with a self proclaimed "feminist". (I found this out after she was at my house). During our time together, she brings up that she's on anti-depressants... then goes on to tell me how she's obsessive, yet hates guys that obsess over her. Long story short, I did not have sex with her; it felt like having sex with her would open a whole bag of bullshit I didn't want to deal with. She was literally begging me to have sex with her, and I passed. I said, "I really like you, I think you're sweet. There's a cool guy out there for you, but we can still be friends." Needless to say, this makes her want it even more. Truth be told, this girl was about a 5-6 face with a 5-6 body. I haven't pulled in a while so I needed an ego boost. Once I found out this chick was damaged goods, I threw the little critter back into the pond. When I dropped her off, she was pissed off I didn't fuck her. Go figure. Either way, I feel like I'm getting back in the swing of things. Hopefully, I'll be pulling better quality going forward. But anyway, the point of this post is that anti-depressants are typically a red-flag. Don't brush them off. Take them with the respect that they deserve and avoid getting into bulshit.

A large swath of women are on anti depressants. What he says to avoid is women who say they are.

Same as damaged chicks. If one tells you on the first date she was raped, vs one who was, but got over it and doesn't talk about it.

One is a problem, the other is a cry for validation

Don't EVER date a girl that was raped, EVER. It doesn't matter if she is lying or not. Both are damaged.

71 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

The point is, if she isn't mentioning it, it's not damaging her, and you can't base decisions on something you can't know.

Like N count, you'll never know, you can only judge by her current behaviours, and someone latching onto the ultimate victim card is not worth it.

either way, you'll have a woman who was assaulted, and doesn't mention it ever. She is either hitting red flags or isn't, so the assault really doesn't matter... If she won't shut up about it,

25 upvotes1033422 years ago

Its a double edge kind of thing. Because if she doesn't mention it and push you into a relationship with her, you WILL find out eventually and you might be already invested in her. So she manipulated you into a fucked up situation.

She HAS to mention it to you and it better be early on so you can move on.

I've known a girl that was LEGIT raped at knife point. It 100% will fuck up a womans life.

I've known one that was too, not by knife. we never dated, and she was fine. Only thing out of it was a serious hate on for weak men, it amplified her need to find a strong man to protect...

Regardless, I don't find these hard and fast rules useful, I much prefer to observe whats right in front of me, instead of looking at the checklist.

N count, assault, X... She scored a 3, better dump her!

Because when AWALT rears it's ugly head, none of those stats are going to matter, better off keeping eyes open

I don't frequent TRP so excuse my ignorance, but why is damaged bad? A majority of the girls I've slept with were damaged in one way or another, one told me she loved me during a one night stand. They're all great sex.

8 upvotesCryptoOrchid2 years ago

Damaged can be bad but isn't always. Issue happens when damaged girls go a little crazy on you and fall apart. They can turn violent (usually happens with victims of child abuse .. perhaps due to the lack of control they had in the situation (or rape I suppose)) they can also turn stalker if they have mental issues.

Once you sleep with a girl that's mentally unstable, she can make your life hell if she wants to. It's just dangerous.

Also.. everyone is damaged in life. It just depends on how damaged you are. Take it on a scale of 1 - 10.

1 is mostly a clean life with a 2 parent household and regular issues. Maybe parents divorce. No mental issues.

5 obviously is average.

10 would be the girl that wasn't loved as a child and sold for sex by her mother. She was raped as a teenager and developed mental issues like extreme bipolar and perhaps disassociative personality disorder. She may lack empathy entirely depending on how bad the child abuse was or if she was never loved. This is how you breed psychotic people. Male or female doesn't matter here.

So the higher up the crazy scale you go, the more dangerous it is. It's shit like getting your dog murdered for leaving a girl, or getting your tires slashed.

Don't stick your dick in crazy.

When I first started dating the man who is now my husband, he called me up to make plans with me and I told him I would be busy for a little bit but could meet up later. He asked what I was up to and I told him the truth - I had a therapy appointment. He later asked me why I go to therapy and it led to a conversation about depression and anxiety, and that was the last it was brought up.

I'm just curious about your logic. Should I have lied to him and not told him about my therapy/antidepressants? I agree with the statement that people - not just women - who voluntarily bring up such things without prompting are generally seeking validation. But what about a situation like the one I was in? Of course I didn't want to come across as crazy, but I also am strongly against lying about anything - especially to the man I'm with.

21 upvotesStythe2 years ago

I know many people dealing with issues. The best don't deny the issues. The worst are addicts. The key is not to deny something, it's to be realistic and honest. If you husband had left you due to your honesty about what you were dealing with, would you really have thought it a complete loss? TRP is for men, but many if these rules apply to both genders. Does the dude who works out hard, eats well and has a high paying job but rubs it in your face and makes you feel stupid for not being as "good" as him seem like a catch? No, not in the long run, because his confidance is based on lowering others, not betting himself.

The happiest people understand this.

24 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

No, probably how you handled it. You just said you were busy. If you don't need the validation of being the 'wounded woman' and eliciting white knight responses, and only mentionned it because he pushed (which he really shouldn't have cared)

And just judge by your behaviours. Ignore what she says, watch what she does.

If you're doing all the right things, whats inside your head is your issue, if you're genuinely dealing with it, and ask for help, most guys who take you under their wing (relationship) are more than happy to assist.

The alternative is co dependancy, and that's what I'm talking about avoiding here, ultimately

TBH, despite some people who desperately need the hormonal balances required to maintain homeostasis in how they feel, I guarantee you the majority of those people were just lazy and don't work out (which is a natural endorphin enhancer), or their psychiatrists pushed this on them as an easy out for $$$. Either way. I'm still a pretty firm believer that society and tech reduce the amount of times our fight or flight responses are naturally engaged (as our hunter gatherer ancestors used to have to live with) and that this lack of instances in our lives is the root cause of depression. Exercise/ working out is the closest thing we get to activating fight or flight other than making reckless/life threatening decisions.

14 upvotes1033422 years ago

This doesn't really show the full picture, imo, because women don't really feel the need to workout like men. It isn't really ingrained in their biology.

Women mostly want to be mothers, only a small percentage of women are natural sluts. Some girls are born to be sluts and love to fuck, but most don't.

But now... every girl is born to be a slut, they take the pill to not get pregnant and fuck aroung, all the while fucking up royally their hormonal balance. And this along with the pressure of working like a man.

Being promiscuous feels good for most men, women aren't wired this same way, they don't feel good after sex like men do most of the times, unless they are getting something out of it.

Feminism is the biggest shot in the foot for women.

14 upvotesSeoul_Brother2 years ago

I don't understand what you're getting at.

Women in hunter gatherer societies before the dawn of technology and advanced civilization still had to endure fight or flight situations. They still had to travel in nomadic situations, gather resources, protect their children, run like hell away from danger whilst carrying said babies, even try to fight off men who tried to rape them to reproduce. This still took a degree of fitness in order to achieve (sure not as much as men, but to a degree, thehy did). You still read about early primates and their version of AF/BB. Females put out for Alpha while sometimes, 5-15% of the time, they would willingly mate with betas in exchange for resources. This evolutionary trait has existed for hundreds of thousands of years. Also, the fat acceptance movement has done wonders to increase the statistic of depression. Literally everything about this society skirts away from the question "could it just be you? Could you just be in a negative feedback loop of being lazy, not taking care of your body, and living a sedentary lifestyle, which naturally leads to less endorphins, epinephrine, and 'feel good' hormones that makes you naturally happy?" Granted when it comes to working out, a "healthy/athletic" woman still needs to maintain a 14% to 25% BF percentage to not have birth complications (if you ever want to have a child), but every case is different and some women can be less.

Instead of realizing these natural imbalances caused by easier lifestyles, third wave also externalizes all faults and makes it easy to shift blame towards environmental situations. (ie questions like: "Are you stressed at work?" "Have you been arguing a lot with your family?" "What is your home situation like?" "You are beautiful just the way you are! Eat more of that ice cream!"). Ever notice how women love the thrill seeking component of cheating/ wild vacations/ etc? It's cause that is the closest thing they get to fight or flight. "Oh my husband is going to be so mad when he finds out. This is so exciting!" The risky behavior gets the heart racing for women that they would usually experience if they were in a dangerous situation. (Fight or flight). Almost getting caught while fucking in the woods, anything that triggers a heart racing stimulus is something they seek. If they are set in a normal civilized setting and following rules, that's when they feel more depressed. Women love dangerous/thrill seeking things that get their jimmies rustled cause that's what nature is designed to do. We just suppressed with with the societal/technological advances that came way too quickly.

I can agree that other pills and contraceptives that mess up the natural balance of hormones in a woman also add to the depression statistics. Overall, women in general take more drugs than men do and this can cause a great imbalance. I only know a few cases where a woman has drastically improved due to birth control/anti-depressants, but I think this is an exception to the rule. I stand by the theory (though not wholly proven) that the lack of acute stress responses (fight or flight) and the influx of comfort in our lives leads to depression and emotional problems.

I feel like depression is more rampant among women these days because of feminism/this modern day society externalizing issues. I think dual mating strategy always existed within women (thus AWALT). As for today's society and tying this back to OP's post, I think women telling men they are suffering from depression is the beta seeking behavior in her dual mating strategy where she is trying to find her white knight to provide resources and comfort for her. It's just a developed strategy to ensure she can get a guy to take care of her by appealing to their emotion/ sympathy while she can then freely go and find her alpha.

You might be on to something, but my genetics are completely fucked and I do not function without meds. The bulk of people on my dad's side of the family either suicided or murder then suicided. When I hit 13 something felt very off. I loved working out and still do, and naturally get that feel good rush when you move some weight around, but for some people it's more than that. For some people we really should have just died the fuck out from natural selection, but in the modern era we live.

I have my normal "I feel good right now and I'm happy that I never stop progressing I am so proud of the man I am" feelings, but sometimes you get swallowed up by "why am I continuing right now walk outside into traffic and end it because life is irrelevant hell go die to a bunch of cops while holding a knife."

There are two types of neurodivergent person:

  • The excuse giver with an external: "That's not my fault! I have (insert disorder)".

  • Then the healthy person with an internal: "I'm aware of my biological shortfalls and I've taken the steps necessary to prevent them from having a negative effect on my life".

The person who mentions their disorder early on is most likely the former. Thing is there's a difference between mental illness and mental health problem:

A mental illness is a health problem that significantly affects how a person feels, thinks, behaves, and interacts with other people. It is diagnosed according to standardised criteria. The term mental disorder is also used to refer to these health problems.

A mental health problem also interferes with how a person thinks, feels, and behaves, but to a lesser extent than a mental illness. Mental health problems are more common and include the mental ill health that can be experienced temporarily as a reaction to the stresses of life.

If properly treated, many disorders won't have any impact on one's day to day life. Think ADHD, depression and even bipolar can be managed similarly and isn't a red flag. The key is to move on if you discover that they're the former rather than the latter person and leave early if you can't spot the difference.

I only thought it worth mentioning because I've had comfortable arrangements with the TRP notorious bipolar women and a range of others over the years, in the end the healthily managed individuals are no more erratic than any other partner.

Its all about taking ownership over your actions and behavior. You may be depressed, have anxiety, bipolar, etc and you are at a disadvantage to thosd without. You are still conscious though. You need to learn to become aware of your body and mind to "fight" those battles.

"Fuck you depression, Im going for a run today because I know if I lay here today, Im going to lay here again tomorrow and its going to worsen."

"Fuck you anxiety, Im going out to meet this girl for the first time and even though Im nervous and have no clue how it'll work out, Im at least going to try."

I didnt fail in school because of depression, I failed because I didnt know how to handle it yet. I was conscious of what was happenig at the time and didnt fight back. I accepted it as something out of my control and played the victin card, but I dont blame depression. I blame me for not handling it better.

And learn to accept you'll feel shitty at times! BUT it isnt going to be forever. I know this because I have depression and anxiety. Once in a whike I cant shake off that doom and gloom feeling but I know that the tide will turn the other way if I stick to my routine even if I dont see the point in those dark days.

Kind of off on a tangent but Im 100% sure there is someone who is depressed and feeling sorry for themselves that need to see this and take ownership over their situation.

In regards to women with mental disorders, generally stay away. Its a gokd rule of thumb as it would be for women tk stay away from men with nental disorders. But if they do have it, make sure theyre proactive about it and not reactive. Make sure they take ownership of their lives and arent helpless victims.

The phrase I was planning to use in my comment was "take ownership", looks like that won't be necessary.

Once we realize that whatever our disadvantages, the world does not give a single fuck and will just steamroll us all that much more easily, it's on us to handle things. You can let it gradually kill you, which is understandable I suppose, but you'll be missing out on so much.

Yours is a great reply. But I still think that it's worth stating a blanket statement of "run away no matter what" here. Most of the people here won't have the maturity to be able to safely deal with people with mental illnesses. Easier to just stay away from them.

9 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

I don't disagree with you, caveat being that the person in question can't spot the difference.

Some conditions can work in your favour if you're a dark triad type. Most of the excuse givers are more than happy to give lengthy specifics about their diagnoses, coupled with personal experience and the DSM-5, you can have a pretty strong idea of what makes them tick; then play it to your advantage going forward.

Red flags with nuance, I suppose. "Never stick your dick in crazy (unless you know what you're doing!)" Some crazy girls can be good fun; this applies less to the healthy types however. Most of them are no different to you or I. With a good mental health plan and therapist, things like antidepressants are used when warning signs of the disorder have begun to manifest and act to balance the person out in the initial phase so their life can continue as normal until they balance out and can phase the medication back out. It's a utility; keeping levels of the neurotransmitters high improves communication between the nerve cells which strengthens the circuits in the brain which regulate mood.

2 upvotescuriously_crazy2 years ago

.. DSM-5

The DSM-5 is useless. Go back earlier. A lot of psychologists go by 4.

In 5 they've even included being anti-authority as a disorder. I guarantee you each and every one of us on here could find something that applies to us in it (which of course is what they want - make everything a disorder = control).

1 upvotesDoulich2 years ago

that's because mental "syndromes" are effectively just collections of symptoms that manifest as a pattern. it's not the diagnosis that causes the problems, it's the problems that create a diagnosis. syndromes are basically just neat labels you can put on people that have things in common.

Of course you can classify the whole world according to things in the DSM, it's meant for that. Nobody is perfectly mentally healthy and everyone has character flaws that represent major mental problems. Some people's flaws are just more accepted than others. What's the difference between a fear of clowns and a fear of unpatterned space anyways? It's only a problem when it's severe.

You're missing the point of this sub. There are two main views:

  1. Amoral sexual strategy. From this POV, why should you spend your time and effort with a crazy woman when there are millions of others you could be pursuing? It's a cost-benefit analysis, really.

  2. Self-improvement. Yes, improving one's self is really hard work, done a bit everyday until you die. But, remember, it's call self-improvement. You're doing hard work for yourself. Doing hard work for the sake of a broken bitch is useless, and it's called "captain save-a-ho".

The excuse giver with an external: "That's not my fault! I have (insert disorder)".

I can't tell you just how wrong you are. This is a HUGE step for a person with a PD to get to. Before that, this person operates under the MO "everyone is different and stupid, they should be like me." That is why PDs are PDs, if they didn't operate that way, people would just go "oh, I have some issue, I should stop doing this or seek treatment."

But that's literally not how it works. They live in a different world than neuro-normal people. They see red when others see green, figuratively speaking.

My personal experience with this (uNPD w/ uBPD) is that your disorder will usually become part of your identity, in some way shape or form.

That deep rooted form of denial is what drives most mental issues. Few mental issues are blatant enough to the person who has it that they can see there is something wrong, then see someone, and then manage it.

But to get to the two examples you've given, you first have to realize something is wrong. People with BPD, Bipolar, NPD, HPD etc rarely realize something is wrong. In fact, everyone else is "wrong."

"She's just a prude" is what an HPD would say. "He is naive" would say the NPD, while exploiting that person. The bipolar would rationalize all their behavior as circumstance, time period etc or just blame everyone else, not realizing their cyclical behavior.

This is why people will destroy a family and marriage after marriage, because its always some other reason than themself.

So, long story short. I think your post is incorrect on a pretty profound level.

Yes, but even that huge step is not enough in my books to consider entering any form of romantic relationship. Acknowledging the condition is only part of the journey and may be considered healthier but it doesn't cross my threshold of healthy. I only invest in partners with mental health issues if it's well managed. I haven't got the patience for someone that can justify their actions with their mental illness.

Those I've had successful relationships with were years into treatments, knew the early signs to seek therapy and to excuse themselves if things were getting shaky. The important thing about mental health management is staying on top of it.

Regardless, I can see how it isn't as clear as it could be but I was addressing the antidepressants argument. I initially used ADHD as most people have family members or friends with it and have seen that it can be treated and managed. Meant it more as: Much like ADHD can be managed, so too can depression and bipolar. My reasoning being that I've spent a lot of time with folks with the disorder and some, after treatment, mental health plans and access to the required resources, should it come to it, manage to lead very normal and functional lives that are no different from the perspective of the observer than the neurotypical. Ofcourse there's more going on under the bonnet and it takes time to be at a healthy enough point to self manage.

Not everyone responds as well to treatment or is even ready for that stage yet, I feel for those people. But it's not my problem and I won't knowingly let someone into my life if they haven't reached a manageable stage of treatment.

Essentially saying, yeah you can consider it a red flag but having a mental disorder does not mean that they are cursed to live with the worst aspects of it.

Oh and to add, I meant this as casual relationships/plates. I'm not looking for settle down with someone with the more intense disorders. Depression or anxiety perhaps but the results of a bad patch are less damaging.

You're still missing the point. Your statement is just flat out wrong. The vast majority of people who have PDs, don't know it, and even if you show them an entire book written about them, they start the mental Olympics.

Anti-depressants are in fact a good indicator that someone is emotionally unstable for some reason, and its unlikely that person should be any sort of LTR candidate above plate level.

1 upvotespfffft_comeon2 years ago

you're confusing PDs with mood disorders of which bipolar is a mood disorder, not a PD. why does that distinction matter? because PDs like borderline are effectively untreatable at this point in time while bipolar is treatable and can be to the point that it is 0 problem. i can assure you that bipolar people do know something is wrong whereas your PDs do not. i agree with you in general, but if your plan is to talk like you're an expert you should stop talking.

I really like your reply and it is rather rationale; however, mental health problems are still a red flag.

Yes, totally agree. Old guy here... anti-depressants go hand in hand with "triggers" and violent mood swings beyond and addition to anything menstral. Also it's a crutch mechanism. "Oh my mess are off" "oh I can't...some side effects". It can become a 3rd party in a relationship that things get blamed on instead of taking personal responsibility.

Psych drugs can be wonderful for people but you don't need to date it. If you're currently involved with someone on psych drugs find out if it was with a psychiatrist or the regular GP. The GP has the power to prescribe but not the extensive training in most cases to accurately diagnose. Patients can go to their GP with their own self-diagnosis and get their drugs after some discussion. I've seen it, experienced it, and dealt with it.

Regardless of gender, situation, intent, social construct etc... if someone's biggest selling point in terms of conversation is what meds they are on, just go the other way.

When all they have to offer is excuses for their failures and it's supported by their claims of their usually-self-diagnosed afflictions, just go the other way. If they know more about anti-depressants than they do world events, run. If their talk is dominated by reasons why they don't have a good life, and it's circling the anti-depressants drains, run.

For some people, all they have about them which in interesting is what affliction they have, and what meds they are on. Run far away from those people.

Some of society (their own kind) are responsible for enabling this behavior though. It becomes a contest within their groups on who has it worse. "Oh, I don't want to go to the market, too crowded, I have anxiety". Do you? or are you just spineless and awkward so you want to have anxiety because it's a convenient excuse? Current society rewards this negative behavior as well, that's awful. It makes it a lot easier to separate the useful from the useless however, and that's great.

While I don't disagree with your premise about women on anti-depressants, your story here does nothing to support the idea. She was pissed that you didn't fuck her after she literally begged you to, thus hurting her self esteem. She would have felt the same whether on anti-depressants or not, I would imagine. She was a self-proclaimed feminist, another huge red flag, but again there was nothing in your story to suggest that it was problematic. The only actual thing she did that was out of line was to tell you that she was obsessive, but doesn't like guys obsessing about her (ie she wants the power to control her partner, not the other way around). That is in accord with being a feminist, but not necessarily being on anti-depressants. Besides, girls spout all sorts of nonsense to try to impress guys, it doesn't mean it was actually true.

But anyway, the point of this post is that anti-depressants are typically a red-flag.

You wrote this post like the average woman who identifies as a feminist is not a red flag, since it tends to have nothing to do with equality, and more to do with seeing all men as both subhuman oppressors and "morally"-justified slaves. =P

I would more likely date a non-feminist on anti-depressants than I would a feminist who is not on any psychological medication.

I think the more logical thing to say is that "I'm on anti-depressants" + "I'm a feminist" = HUGE MOTHER-FUCKING RED FLAG.

I might be late to the party here, but honestly if you were looking for an ego boost, turning her down should be a better boost than closing. Think about it, you had the opportunity if you wanted, but you controlled the situation, frame, and your own willpower to such an extent that you chose not to.

Only a handful of times, and I mean maybe three(?), in my entire life have I had the opportunity to close and decided against it. At first you feel like you are the one who lost, but then comes the realization that you have made the ultimate decision. At least for me personally that's more validating that actually closing sometimes.

At least she was honest. An honest hoe. The way you get them to like you is to act in ways you think would make them leave you alone. Eventually they become obsessed. Then what? The more you try to get away, the more obsessed she'll become until it gets scary. So there is an obvious solution here I call "Charging the Bear." The way you get her to leave you alone is by acting in ways you think would make her like you, like subtly mentioning things about yourself you think might impress her, mirroring her texting style. Literally it'll take less than a couple texts and she'll lose all interest.

I posted something about this last week and people thought I was just bragging so I deleted it but I was going to give a live feed of how I get obsessed succubus to leave me alone.

So in about 3 texts, she vanished. I just simply told her I missed her and was thinking about her. I mirrored her expressions. Used a few emojis. All spaced an hour or two apart so she would think I was treading lightly. Anything I would think would make her stick around.

Obviously this is a bold move. A girl is suffocating you and saying she loves you. The last thing you think will make her fuck off is to say "I love you too" but god damn does it work, and in my case it worked very fast.

It's counterintuitive but that's the best way to play these hoes. Say things that would make any rational person run for the hills. You're going to truly think she'll never talk to you again. That's how you know you're doing it right. You'd be surprised the lengths they'll go to win your affection. Only give it to them when you want them gone.

2 upvotesSpartacats2 years ago

I dated this girl that was clearly highly unstable up and downs. She'd occasionally just start crying out of nowhere. Understandably the well was pretty dry for me at this time and was just trying to fill my bucket regardless of the ph balance or imbalance yuk yuk. One night she left me in her room for a few minutes, I opened a random cabinet to see around 30 to 40 pill bottles. I had already planned making it the last time seeing her. When out of no where she just says I need to go to sleep, proceeds to lie on her bed and was out like a light. I thought well that made this easy I left and never saw her again.

2 upvotesBlacklabellogics2 years ago

As general rule, if she says she is mentally ill believe her. Do not attempt to rationalize it, do not go past go, do not get caught with child support payments.

The statistic I found on this for a post of mine (http://wp.me/p78k8O-nY) showed that within a 12 month period 21.8% of American women can be diagnosed with a mental illness, this covers anything from a slight depression to more serious conditions such as bi-polar disorder and paranoid schizophrenia. The important thing to note is that these are the ones who:

A) Are above the required threshold for diagnosis, and you can be pretty damn crazy and still not reach that threshold.

B) There are most likely plenty of women who just happened to be feeling well in that moment that have a history with mental illness.

A principle of mine that I had to learn from experience is "Don't stick your dick in crazy". Sure, it is fully possible to rationalize "I'll just bang her once and then never contact her again", or "What can happen from just one bang", but many of these women are either addictive as hell in bed, or may file charges afterwards.

Honestly, I think OP should've fucked her - then did good aftercare and ghosted as well as possible. This post has so many parallels to the recent post where someone made fun of a nofapper for turning a girl down after getting her home. Only difference is the justification provided. Both sound like hamstering to me. I wonder if there wasn't another actual reason why OP didn't get laid that night...

1 upvotesRedMoonAscendant2 years ago

As soon as a woman exhibits any of these huge red flags, like was raped, or on anti-depressants, or is feminist, or likes positive consent, or anything, do NOT do what OP did.

Instead, test blue pill theory. Tell her how much you think she's amazing and the best woman ever and how she's so special because she paints her nails.

Talk about your feelings.

Then she will walk away from you. Win win!

1 upvotesMagic_Smoothie2 years ago

Yo, speaking of mental illness - any one here ever hook up with a chick deep in the Narcissist pool? That's fuckin surreal. Seemed super cool and edgy (had big titties and nice mulatto skin but also liked art and was good at it) met her once at a mutual friend's and later that night asked if she wanted to hang out the next day (she did)

and that's when it got fuckin weird...right away her first comments upon meeting me are these direct quotes...

"My last boyfriend's dick was as big as my arm!"

"If I saw a guy walking around with his boner out, i'd ask him if he needed help with it"

"Last place I worked out, some guy working there fucked me in his truck everyday, it made all the girls so jealous of me!"

"My ex called me fat...so I fucked all his friends :)"

Now...any sane and rational dude would have taken the next train outta there, I'm honestly just kinda stunned so I can't do much more than smile and play it cool (meanwhile inside i'm wtf'ing so hard, is this the most nuclear of shit tests or what?)

We get back to my place, I put on some cartoons. (she likes adventure time despite being in her mid 20's...just red flags all over the place god damn.) And after a few bongs she very apperently ready to fuck...as she's getting undressed I'm oggling at her massive titties but I notice she's staring at herself in my full length mirror, like lost in a trance checking herself out.

Finally she catches me looking...AND SCREAMS AT THE TOP OF HER LUNGS "STOP FUCKING STARING AT ME!!!!!"

My boner begins to weaken, like what the fuck is happening right now? anyways she lays down on the bed, and I give her titties the good suck like it's my last meal before execution (not only do I love juggz but this gives me a chance to recover from the previous WTF'ing)

However at this point, I notice to her chanting to herself "I shouldn't be doing this, I shouldn't be doing this" over and over again. And right there I had had ENOUGH of that shit, bust line of the goddesses or not if I don't get this girl out I'm going to end up in a fucking cooler at the bottom of a lake.

Getting her out of the house was also a bad ordeal, as you can imagine. the following day I received no less than 14 phone calls in under 5 minutes. I never picked up and that was the end of that.

I disagree that this needs to be a blanket issue. There are some women who use meds to control a disorder and get back on their feet.

My girl was when I met her. A year later she wasn't and hasn't looked back. Sometimes you need the support to get through rough patches.

They're a yellow flag. Lots of people are on anti depressants not because they're crazy or damaged goods, but because their brain just doesn't work quite right for some reason. Depression can be something as minuscule as simply being tired all the time. Plenty of people aren't on anti depressants when they should be, so it really doesn't mean anything in a vacuum.

If she's got her Depression under control then it shouldn't be any issue even for an LTR. You need to keep an eye out for signs that she doesn't have it under control, or that she is some other form of crazy.
