Dating an alcoholic who is sober
Four dates into what seemed like a fairytale and he told me that he's a recovering alcoholic.
He goes to AA meetings every week and says he hasn't had a drop to drink in three years.
I don't want to throw something amazing away... But I'm not sure I want to get involved with an alcoholic even if he's admitted it. " In a nutshell: I think it depends on your situation.
Notice I say your situation and not the man you're dating. Because the only person you can control or change is you.
Find other's who are also sober and been through what you are going through.And even if it's super cute (obvi), he's probably not going to be into it.Lindsay asks: "I just met this guy who seems perfect on paper.But at times this kind of talk makes me uncomfortable. I think this is normal...is having this change with a man in the house every once in a while. How do I love this guy and not get caught up in his stuff. If you're having to force the feeling of love, having to convince yourself that you love him, that is also a huge red flag. As is said here often, he is not his potential; he is who he is showing up as.We have been seeing each other for nearly 2 months now. He/We have been going slow because that is what he wants. And who he is showing up as, is someone who makes you uncomfortable.
