Notice that the majority of single schizophrenics are men. Yes, there are some single women in here on the forum but it’s mostly men. There are also some schizophrenic men who are married with kid(s) but those men are also very rare.

If schizophrenic men are to pursue a relationship with a woman, the mindset and goal achievement of us schizophrenic men needs to change.

  1. Ingest anti-psychotic medication daily for intrusive thoughts
  2. Think positive about how good a schizophrenic man could be to a woman
  3. Set a goal to lose weight and achieve it

I’m single. No longer believe in being in a relationship unless I’m in a healthy place. That a problem for people like us.

One way that made me feel better is that high priests don’t get married, don’t watch porn, don’t even masturbate and self-isolate. I don’t feel alone this way.

I’m single.

I don’t think schizophrenia is the reason I’m single.

There were other reasons for breakup.

I have had overweight boyfriends.
My x who’s name I tattood on me had a fat stomach.

Don’t let your overweight stop you from having a relationship.

Symptoms can come in the way of a relationship.

I used to believe my boyfriends were getting paid to be with me and pretended to love me and that if they married me they would get paid $10 million like a actor.

I also thought one wanted to kill me because his friends wanted to kill me they said so.

There is nolonger lonely a dating site for disabled people.
I haven’t tried it but heard of it.

Good love :two_hearts: wishes for us all hey.

Single and don´t want a relationship. I don´t want to explain the little pill I take every night to anybody.

Fat and out of shape, no good for one night stands either, at the moment.

And no I’m not just blaming the illness. On its own its obviously me too. But the way I am has led to the illness so that’s now a big part of the reason

My thinking patterns were very stressful.
My diet I should not be eating dairy and wheat for example, I think it may have contributed as some evidence suggests it may be a contributor in some people
Drugs
Not getting out of relationships that are too stressful for me not being ready for relationships yet having stayed in them hence excess chronic stress…

i prefer being single…having a girlfriend would be too much hassle

Single here. I don’t want to have children or get married soon, so it’s no big deal.

Having someone for sexual flings would be nice though.

Single female here! It would be very difficult for me to establish intimacy with anyone because of schizophrenia. That’s me, though.
