I've been deeply depressed for several years now but during the last couple of months I've regained a little hope since I've fallen in love with a wonderfully sympathetic, intelligent and beutiful woman. I haven't really confronted her with my deepest feelings yet she has shown clear sign of interest in me. We get along very well in conversations and share values and humour. Now the problem is that I know that she, like me, have issues of depression. I honestly think that she deserves someone that can unconditionally support her in a way I'm not sure I can do. I'd rather stay depressed and see her happy with someone else than to satisfy my own emotional needs on her expense. What should I do? Should I make the leap of faith, or should I just stay in the background?
