I've had to learn to try and mold to my surroundings as much as I can to fit another person into my world.
It's exceptionally difficult to try and break patterns I've grown so accustomed to and, honestly, have come to rely on heavily.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it seems like a good time to bring up the topic of OCD and dating.
I’ve previously written about the heartache relationship OCD (R-OCD) can cause, and it’s certainly not hard to see how having obsessive-compulsive disorder can affect all aspects of dating.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental illness that affects approximately 3.3 million Americans. It comes from a group of “illogical” fears and, as a result, certain obsessive behaviors manifest. Having relationships while simultaneously dealing with OCD can be a challenge.
I have certain characteristics that make my disorder pretty obvious to those around me, as well as a host of others I mask for my own self-preservation.
Understanding what the symptoms of OCD are and where they come from can go a long way in helping you cope with them and to bring down the overall stress level in your relationship.
As well, it is important to realize that many people with OCD experience other forms of anxiety disorders or depression that can complicate the symptoms he or she experiences.Although any intimate relationship has its ups and downs, dating someone who is affected by a chronic mental illness such as OCD can present some additional challenges as well as opportunities for growth.
