Many couples feel stuck in an unsatisfying parent-child type of relationship, with the non-ADHD partner in the role of the parent and the partner with ADHD in the role of the child.

He rarely gives back…I don’t expect him to give as much as I do, but half the time when I compliment him, he just stares at me. I’ve made efforts to have more romance in the bedroom, but get rejected 75% of the time. I understand it’s his ADHD, but it still hurts. Not to mention the procrastination when chores need to get done, if I don’t do them, they don’t get done. I don’t want to live in a pig sty just to accommodate his ADHD.

The more intimate and important you become to a person with BPD, the more severe their fear of abandonment becomes. BPD relationship stages start with the ‘honeymoon phase’ where you feel irreplaceable, and they idealize you.

Or there’s something wrong with the relationship. Just find out what the real reason is, and don’t make a big deal out of it if it’s not a big deal. Just not being in the mood is enough of a reason—one day, you won’t be feeling like having sex when your partner wants to.
