Dating when aa aide certificate got nurse updating
“Listen, before we do this, I need to tell you something...”I agree.
That’s one of the main upsides to dating somebody who’s also sober.
You can tell them, “I’ve been in six rehabs, four psych wards, and I’ve been arrested for assault.” And, they’re like, “Of course you have.” The downside is that they, too, are often a ticking time bomb.
Natasha, an ex-pat who's been on the wagon for 10 years agrees.
It takes a lot of work and a lot of time to squelch it in all its myriad forms.
When two people in recovery date, they have a lot in common: the same AA meetings, the same friends, the same problems.
“The pros of dating in the program are that, chances are, the guy won't leave me when he finds out some of the things I have done.
Or how many people I have slept with,” she says, half-jokingly.
The old “I’ve wrestled with my demons and won” line? How about a simple, “I’m a pretty hot colossal f**k up”?
It’s always a little awkward when a potential date wants to “meet you for a drink.” Telling them you’re sober feels like confessing to some horrible chronic STD.
