This is not necessarily problematic, explained clinical psychologist and relationship expert Barbara Greenberg, but it can become a substantial cause for concern for those experiencing severe suffering who may be less likely to protect themselves. I later found out this can be a typical occurrence for people who are depressed.But for me, a bisexual and queer woman who at the time was primarily dating cis-gendered straight men, it meant a stream of partners being attracted to, and enjoying, my inability to stand up for myself: an excuse to sleep with a “beautifully fragile” woman who would not ask for much in return.The fact that an aura of sadness can attract partners is not uncommon.When the depressed partner begins to recover and gain autonomy, the “savior” partner may find themselves uncomfortable with the new power balance. However as my friend Ashley, who suffers from Major Depressive Disorder and wished only to use her first name, explained: “After a while, they give up.One of my exes broke up with me because he said I was bringing him down and he couldn't handle my breakdowns anymore.” It took years before Ashley learned to avoid partners ill-equipped to deal with depression by being honest and upfront about her own situation.
