Dating a recovering anorexic proxy for dating site
He responded with the sweetest message: "Well do you know what that tells me? Sometimes he tries to convince himself I'm not disordered, since I don't purge after binges.
From now on our dates will be watching movies, writing music together, going for walks, long drives, and adventures and absolutely nothing that revolves around food unless you want it to(:" So…I kind of scored. I'm not sure whether it's better or worse to have a partner who sticks his/her head in the sand about it, honestly.
Wishing you the best xx My boyfriend was the first person I told about my ED and he's been very supportive though whenever I'm around he tries to make sure I have at least one decent meal which means no fasting and usually ends with me purging....

I was in recovery when I met him though which was about a year and a half ago (we started dating almost a year ago), and while he knows I still have some weird eating habits I can't break, he's not fully aware that I've completely relapsed.
It's hard because I want to tell him, but he's such a sensitive soul, I just can't stand the thought of giving him something more to worry over. Hes the type of person who doesn't gain weight regardless of quality or quantity of food. We re literally married only a year and a half and im already getting sick and tired of his ass I have never had a stable or healthy relationship because of my eating disorder/mental health.
He's had to deal with so much mental shit from me, first my self-harm then my psychotic break then my BPD diagnosis on top of my Bipolar diagnosis NOW my ED. She never was." I've been in a relationship with the most amazing guy for almost two years now, and we've never tried to hide the major things like this.
I feel really sorry for being a stressful burden on him..now I'm gonna stop rambling before I cry while I'm at school So the guy I've been seeing actually texted me the other day saying "I feel like maybe you just don't like me. It's not normal to deliberately swim further and further out to sea, deeper than you can possibly cope with, all the while screaming at the rescue boats to go back to shore and leave you to drown. I started really struggling with my eating disorder one month into our relationship and he was right there with me, being totally understanding.
He was there when I woke up, and he hasn't left me yet. He doesn't care enough to understand and is often extremely triggering or cruel to me.
