Ocd relationship help is something that most people have a hard time finding. I’m talking about quality help that will actually make a difference. I would assume that you may have been looking for help with your significant other and you may have not had that great of luck. I can tell you that there are some things that you can do in your relationship to help things along and make them happen much sooner than expected. There are in fact ways that you can influence someone else’s action. Here is an example: If you’re significant other is doing a ritual such as repeatedly touching a door knob, you can sneak up on him or her and scare the crap out of them by saying something like, Boo!
What you are doing is breaking their pattern and causing them to associate a bad feeling with doing that ritual. Either it will help or do nothing, but it’s worth a shot when you are desperate. This will not traumatize them or anything as it is just a mild association. It may not even work, but no one on the internet is telling you that these techniques even exist! When you are in an ocd relationship you will find that sometimes the significant other that has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder will not seek out help and in fact may reject the idea altogether out of pride or whatever dumb reason they can think of. In this case, you’ve got to take matters into your own hands. Of course you could always just threaten to leave them but I think that should be a last resort. Then you can say that you tried many things before you just gave up.
When it comes to an OCD relationship, you must understand that you cannot try to force the person to talk about their OCD with you. That will push them away and alienate them even more. In fact you can just let them know that you are there for them when they want to talk about it and they will be more open to coming to you when they are ready. Also do not let them talk you into doing rituals for them. Just tell them that you love them enough to not enable them. Think about the above example about scaring them when they are mid ritual. Think about what kind of effect it would have if when they touched the doorknob it shocked them! Would they be as readily willing to touch it the next time? Well, slow down because I am not recommending you try that at all! What I am saying however is that there are things that you can do that will not hurt the person that will help them to make bad associations with their rituals. At the same time there are things that you can do to help them equate pleasure by not giving in to their ritual.
The things I am going to say now, a therapist could never do unless you are dating one, but they are powerful and are for couples only! In your ocd relationship you can tell them that if they do not give into the ritual, that you will give them sexual favors or a body massage or that you will try something they have always wanted you to try but you didn’t before. This will help to train their brain that the desired action that you want will be rewarded and it will help them to associate pleasure with not giving in to their ritual. Now at the same time don’t feel offended if they choose the ritual over oral sex from you or something like this because they have strong anxiety associated with it. It’s not personal, but you can always try again. What I would suggest that you do is find a NLP practitioner and ask them what things you can do, until the significant other is willing to seek the help they need because remember, you cannot force them, but you don’t have to stand around and watch them get worse either!
