Dating someone with schizoid personality disorder Free adult webcam broadcasting
The fact you even had to ask this tells me you want more.
I hope you aren't wanting something shallow like him being completely obsessed with you and his heart full of just you and all that crap, because honestly that fades with time and in the end you become just partners that have mutual caring for each other.
In case you're wishing for him to change, most likely he won't, either because he is not able to, or because he doesn't want to.
Therapy might help with it, but it may drag on for years.
Very good sign is that he said that he wants to love you and have intimacy with you, I think he deeply cares about you, but looks like you've already somehow given up. He says that he wants to love me and have intimacy with me, but that he is incapable of feeling extreme emotions.
When it comes to personality disorders I don't think that psychopharmacology can do any good except help with depression etc. Has anyone here had any success with therapy or had a successful romantic relationship? He just started psychotherapy and was put on an SSRI, but from what I've recently read about SPD,it does not seem like it's something that can really be changed.
Although schizoid personality disordered people share some negative symptoms in common with some people who have schizophrenia, they do not go on to exhibit truly psychotic behavior.
The worst thing you can do is force him with intimacy and expect romance and not give him space, don't scare him with too high expectations (which I sense you do), well, you should have no expectations at all (they have low tolerance)My boyfriend has spd and I'm borderline (what a coincidence ), we've been together since 2007 and went to hell and back, multiple times.
And think of this- if he todl you he wants intimacy with you that means you are the most important person in his world- and just because that doesn't mean the same as it does with someone 'neurotypical' doesn't mean it shouldn't be counted.
