Re: ADHD and Cheating -- Related?

I think you brought up an interesting point, and here's why.

Impulsiveness and ADHD go hand and hand, thus making the chances of cheating increase.

I can only speak from my experience, but I make many mistakes which, if i had just taken the time to think them through, would never have happened.

In the realm of relationships, it can be hard having ADHD and loving someone because its hard to concentrate on them when so many other things are going on in your head.

Knowing how impulsive I can be, that lack of rationality lends itself to a valid explanation as to why I've ended up going out with other girls and been confused as to how it led to an attraction.

I, too, must make myself very clear so that no one gets the wrong idea:

I AM NOT USING ADHD AS AN EXCUSE.

I just think there is a valid point in saying that ADHD may put the odds against you in this case.
