I feel your pain. I have been dating someone with undiagnosed ADHD for 3 years. Its been a bumpy ride. Not including the ADHD he has commitment issues which from what I have read, are pretty common with people of ADHD.
Currently we are on a break for him to clear his head. He said he has emotional roadblocks and isn’t able to communicate to me. I have been VERY patient with him. He knows that most girls would have ran for the hills by now, and the thought has crossed my mind but I love him. THe usual cycle is he breaks it off and then 3 months later he comes back. I don’t want to abandon him but it’s coming to a crossroads. Its really wearing me down.
