I'm not sure, I'm capable of it, though, if I'm rigorously honest.
First dates can be nerve-wracking for everyone, so just imagine when your date mentions that he's a recovering alcoholic. In short I realised that I really didn't have a spot in her life anymore. It is about him and nothing I do will make any difference.
Hey drummerchick423, I'm still with my AH (who is in recovery now with around 70 days sober currently living in a sober living home) so I don't have any experience dating anyone in recovery...
but I am interested in what others have to say about this.
And also, somehow they gravitate to us, as if they know who will take on the risky propositions.
So I'm thinking I'd better err on the side of being too picky about alcoholism, rather than not picky enough.
It is about him and nothing I do will make any difference.
He'd been sober for about 5 years but relapsed his first semester of law school.
I think I was addicted to the drama and chaos, because there was plenty of it.
Hope your moving on with your life now and you are better off without them in your life ".
