When Your Dating Profile Includes Mental Illness

You can now read my quotes in the Yahoo Health news article about dating with a mental illness written by Cassie Shortsleeve.

I make the case for having a cheerful outlook in life.

One woman I knew told me she would never be happy. No guy wants to date a miserable woman who whines or complains all the time.

Seeing the glass as half full isn’t easy for some people. Yet I’m convinced that working to change your perception can actually improve your outlook for what happens in your life. It can be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Live the life you love and love the life you live isn’t just a bubblegum quote. If you ask me it’s the secret to happiness.

You CAN be happy living with a mental illness. You can have a partner or not. The choice is yours.

I’d love to hear what you think about the Yahoo Health Article.

Have a great day.
