You’ve probably heard the expression, “It’s all in the mind”. When it comes to ADHD, it’s usually a red flag. Someone who says they like you, but then acts like you’re the least bit annoying and just needs to be talked out of it.
I think I have the best name for this guy: The Adhd Guy. This guy is the type of person who thinks he knows you well and has the best intentions. He’s the type of person who is so sure of himself that he wont even admit when he is wrong. He doesn’t like to admit that he needs help, but he will always say he does. So when he says he likes you, he really does.
I know that I like to think that I have a good poker face, but after a few days of playing with one of these people, I find myself being a bit too obvious. I get the feeling that I might be the only one who likes this person.
Unfortunately, in the case of a person with ADHD, if they have an idea about how you should act, you will immediately know it. They will probably even start talking about it. They may even bring up the fact that they have an idea about how you should like things. The thing is, this just means that they think they know how you would like to be treated, but they arent really paying attention to you. This is what gets them into trouble.
People with ADHD can have this “thing” where they are aware of how they are supposed to act, but they cant seem to control it. It can be as simple as noticing that they have a certain behavior and not following it because you have to follow someone else’s lead. One of the reasons I like getting to know a person with ADHD is because they are incredibly social and talk about things with so much thought that you cant help but notice.
I know this is a hard thing to admit, but if you dont like someone at first then it really does get to be a problem. You have to be really careful when you begin dating someone with ADHD because they will take over your space. Most of these things are pretty obvious, but if you dont like it you’ll have to learn to control your space and get to know the person better.
In the short amount of time it takes someone with ADHD to figure out a new way of talking, youll begin to wonder who their friends are. If you like them right away however, youll start to trust them. It comes with knowing who your friends are and that it can be hard to tell them apart from the person you are dating. You can also start to see the person in the wrong light. You think youre doing something good and they see it and they just get mad.
My son got into trouble a few times. Once, I overheard him talking to his friends and he said that he was going to tell his teacher that he was learning to read. I asked him what happened when he told her of his new reading skills and he said, “I told her she’s an overgrown teenager.” I don’t know what that means, but some friends of mine have had this happen.
The people who do this are usually just trying to take advantage of the fact that someone with adhd has the ability to hear and see things that are not normal to them. They are most likely trying to get you to feel guilty for having a normal life. You have to be careful when talking to someone with adhd because these people don’t really feel like they’re in control of their own life. They’re like a robot that you have to constantly remind yourself is not you.
This could be because of a medical condition called temporal lobe epilepsy. Temporal lobe epilepsy is a neurological condition in which the brain has lesions in the temporal lobe. The lesions block the normal ability to communicate with and learn from others. This condition also makes it impossible to enjoy normal social interactions. These issues are thought to be mostly genetic but there is also some evidence of environmental factors.
