Hi there,

I would have a talk with him and find out to what extent his condition effects him, It really depends on the individual as to how it effects each person.

I believe the meds also have their own effect on there behaviour one thing I notice is a dulling of moods, expression and conversational ablility etc.

I have a good friend who was diagnosed schizophrenic over 5 years ago. It can add difficulty to dating my adivce would be to have a caring and open conversation with your potential boyfriend.

In my experience emotion does not trigger it (as you say) you really need to establish what sort of dillusions your friend has had in the past and how he is in general now. also find out how long he has been living this way, and in the case of not taking his meds how he is regarding his wellbeing and mental state, It is not easy to understand it all I suggest you do some study on the illness inorder to evaluate weather this is something you really wish to persue.

However he may be happy to discuss it with you if he hasn't already mentioned it.

All the best :)
