Excitement, adrinalin and so is indeed good for AD/HD people. But isn’t ‘stopping the relationship and then breaking all communication to afterwards come back’ a bit too far for excitement?
Doesn’t that hurt you so much more then what the excitement brings to him?

If I am in a need for my adrenaline rush then I watch some firefighter, war movie, car race or do handy work with big tools…

Isn’t this a bit disrespectful to you? I want to see you happy together with him learning to manage his ADHD. But isn’t it a bit better to slowly walk a different path in life? This sounds that he may continue to hurt your feelings the rest of your life.
But I honestly hope I am seeing things wrong and that someone would say how wrong I am?
