I was dating a man with ADHD (and now married to him) and one thing that we had issues with was that he was very attentive at first but as the months went by he seemed to be losing attention and I thought maybe he was bored with me or didn’t like me, but then came to notice that it was just that he was having a hard time focusing on one thing (me). I learned to be patient and to make sure and communicate how I felt because he had a hard time picking up on my feelings. Even now that we are married we have are struggles like when he’s had half of the conversation in his head and then starts to talk to me about it lol. But he loves me and he makes me laugh with his silliness and I wouldn’t have him any other way. It’s all about understanding and being patient, so you don’t miss out on who the person truly is past their ADHD
