I am excited that HBO’s In Treatment is returning for another season soon! I am always intrigued with shows that explore relationships and intimacy in a unique way. I also wonder what would happen if I found out that someone I was dating was seeing a therapist. Would it be a turn off?
I remember once meeting a guy who had a “life coach” and thought it was surprising that he actually told me about it. When I mentioned to my father that the guy had a life coach, he told me to stay away from the guy. Then he proceeded to make fun of the fact that men today needed help to deal with life. Which then launched him into those “when I was growing up” stories, but I digress. The point is, my father is old school and he doesn’t believe that men should be “in treatment”. What are your thoughts?
Would it bother you if someone you dated had a therapist?
If you are in treatment, do you disclose this to someone you are dating? If so, when and how do you bring it up?
