    Hi,

    I'm looking for advice on what to do in this situation. From the start of our relationship my gf has been very clear on her issues but I have yet to tell her about my own.

    For example I have asperger's syndrome and have recently suffered through a 6 month period of diagnosed major depression, which I don't feel ready to talk about.

    At the same time I feel really guilty that my gf has the confidence and strength to tell me up front even before I started going out with her about her issues but I don't feel ready to talk about mine.

    In this situation, what do I do?

    Depends on the person. How do you think, as objectively as you can, that she would respond?
    Would it help things by telling her, or hinder?

    I don't know, that is what scares me the most - my parents know everything & infact helped me through that period of my life and have supported me throughout but I don't know about her, I don't want it to end our relationship which is why I'm scared.

    A woman or all women?

    Umm... Freudian slip. It's getting too personal in here *parachutes out of window*

    You should be as open as you comfortably can, but I must emphasise comfortably.

    If the girl likes you though, I am sure she won't give a hoot what condition you have.

    I have a gf who doesn't give a damn I've got ADD( even if I can be very intense and don't shut up :P ) seriously though.

    When you're ready to tell her you should

    1 woman - I've been with her for about 2 months now and I'm starting to love her and believe she really is the one for me.........

    I'd like to offer you serious advice. If you cannot trust someone with important details like this, you do not have a relationship, you have a lie.
