  • Um? I've never heard that as being a sign of depression.

    Are you also DEPRESSED? Sad, anxious, pessimistic, achy, irritable, etc...?

  • I wouldn't say that it would mean it just by itself but lots of depressed or people with similar disorders (like bipolar) do sleep around. If you have other signs, go talk to your doctor. I've dealt with depression for years and when it was not under control, I would sleep around a lot. I'm married now and so that doesn't happen but when I get down, the urge to find validation through sex is still there. Often sleeping around is a sign that something is wrong, it just might not be depression per se.

  • It might be, drepressed people try a lot of things to distract them and make themselves feel better.
