Do you or a loved one have ADHD and struggle with maintaining healthy relationships?

Do you find yourself constantly frustrated and misunderstood in your relationships because of ADHD?

Why is it so difficult to love someone with ADHD?


Couples in healthy romantic relationships often face challenges such as communication breakdowns, trust issues and differences in values and lifestyles.


In relationships where one partner has ADHD, these challenges can be amplified.


ADHD can cause difficulties with organisation, time management and emotional regulation, which can lead to misunderstandings and frustration. Additionally, the partner who does not have ADHD may feel neglected or unimportant due to their partner's distractibility and forgetfulness.


However, with the right strategies and support, couples can navigate these challenges and build a strong and loving relationship.


Couple dynamics are unique and often complex, yet I highly recommend that you read this book if the following feelings surface in your relationship:

  • Loneliness, ignored and unappreciated.
  • Feeling tired of taking care of everything on your own and being the only responsible party in the relationship.
  • Anger and emotional stalemate. Anger and resentment permeate many interactions with the ADHD spouse.
  • Feeling that you cannot count on your partner. You always have to organise everything to make up for his or her forgetfulness.
  • Frustration. A spouse without ADHD might feel as if the same issues keep coming back over and over again.
  • Sometimes it seems that your partner does not care about you.
  • Exhaustion and depletion. The spouse without ADHD carries too many responsibilities and no amount of effort seems to fix the relationship.



You experience a lot of resentment, but also recognise the need to try and understand the situation. It can be a challenging and complex process.


If you are the person with ADHD:

  • You may feel constantly criticised for what you do.
  • You may not feel respected as an equal when you tend to avoid your partner.
  • You may feel like your partner is in control of every aspect of your life.
  • You may feel ashamed. Sufferers of ADHD often hide a large amount of shame, sometimes compensating with bluster or retreat.
  • You may feel overwhelmed, secretly or overtly, by the constant stress caused by ADHD symptoms.
  • You may feel different. The brain is often racing, and people with ADHD experience the world in a way that others do not easily understand or relate to.
  • You find that the partner without ADHD complains, nags and becomes increasingly resentful, while the ADHD partner feels judged and misunderstood, becomes defensive and pulls away.


The individual with ADHD often has a sense that something is wrong, but may struggle to identify the root cause. They may have received a misdiagnosis earlier in life or only learned about their condition as an adult, leading them to believe they were unintelligent or incapable for much of their life.


This book is a culmination of years of experience and expertise in maintaining healthy romantic relationships.

It contains valuable insights and techniques that are essential to saving your relationship from potential pitfalls that could lead to a breakup.

Do not wait until it is too late - get your hands on this book now to safeguard your relationship's future.
