I 've read somewhere here that ADHDers have very intense and often short-lived relationship dynamics. Apparently different than NTs'

I'd like to ask you how intense an ADHD crush is.

When you think about intensivity of your emotions, where would you put your ADHD crush on that scale ?

I've had 2 long relationships with NTs, but other than that - short-lived and intense. **sigh**

Wow, I think you're onto something ... but I need to think about ... I certainly have fallen for people far deeper and much faster ... than was appropriate ...

I've never been NT, so I don't know what that's like. I do think the image of an ADHD mind being like a race car with no brakes may be part of this though. As well as the fact that our emotions are not as tightly regulated as others' are.

More intense cause your more sensitive.

What is "NT"?

In this thread "not ADHD", otherwise "neurotypical"

My relationships have always been intense, but I have been married for 21 years and we are still stupid-in love. I met my husband when I was 18, dated for a year and were engaged 1 month past 1 year. I knew he was the one.
