So done with school, done with studying irrelevant facts. Landed a chill job (I'm at work now) and have my own income, life is pretty good I guess.
Now, how do I find a girlfriend and possibly someone to start a life with? I'm out of school and haven't got a girlfriend which is bad I suppose, as pretty much all my friends are already in long term, serious relationships.
Relationships & Bipolar

I suffer from bipolar disorder. I am also in a relationship.
I don't take any meds (if I had to get a diagnosis, I'd have to leave my field of work), but recently I started having a mixed state, and as a result mentally I've been all over the place.
I have a boyfriend who cares a hell of a lot about me. We've only been dating for a few months, but we've been friends for years. This is my first real relationship I've had in about 5 years. However, I can see that this is absolutely killing him. I don't feel that it's fair on him, but he always tells me that the benefit is that he can sleep safe knowing I'm okay/safe/not contemplating self harm or suicide.
I've hit a dilemma: I want to be with him, but at the same time, surely it would be best if I broke up with him, so that he wouldn't have to spend all of his time worrying about me (as he currently does)?
Help, what should I do?

I am a college student, a junior, and I am very lazy. I study economics, a relatively difficult subject, and I never study at all. I never talk to my professors, and I never do well on problem sets or presentations, but I absolutely excel at essays (a few times even being pulled aside and praised for them), and I usually get A's on all of my exams.
Like I said, I never study; I cram the entire term worth of content in 12 hours leading up to the exam and somehow far surpass most of my peers (often times setting the curve). What is telling about this is that most of my peers study excessively and go to office hours and the like.
I am making this thread because today I just did what I assumed to be impossible. Knowing practically nothing about any of my 3 classes this term, I woke up at midnight yesterday and crammed for all 3 classes... because my exams were all back to back from noon to 6pm. Somehow, I aced every single one.
Perhaps I am being narcissistic, but I am starting to realize this might be an exceptional quality of mine and I am wondering if anyone can help me identify exactly what this quality implies.
