12 step singles dating service
As long as you aren’t in it to try and save someone and they are emotionally stable, it can work fine and you might be surprises at the openness you will find.Be extra cautious if they are under a few years straight though.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your ex was an alcoholic,we would still be together if she had chosen to get help,i know a lot of very hood people, mainly through work, that have really good lives, because they have worked there programs, one of them has been clean and sober for over 20 years, if i need advice i like to go to him I dated an ex-alcoholic for a short time; I found it exhausting that his entire life & social schedule revolved around Schick Shadel.I'm glad for him that he got clean, but I think he should only date women with similar experiences, as I couldn't relate to so much of his life.We work the steps from being powerless over other peoples drinking or druging.If some is truly working a program it shows in how they treat people! They are focused on today and Knowledge of God's will for them!Also, I wouldn't want to become someone's replacement 'drug.'So...maybe if someone has been in recovery for awhile and isn't in immediate danger of relapse, I'd consider dating them. I attended Co DA meetings for 10 years, only stopped because they changed the meeting to a time and evening I couldn't go.
Some of the most empathetic, caring and most honest people I have ever met have been ex addicts and very few are dregs of the gutter, they have been everything from menial laborers to doctors and lawyers who have never been arrested or have a history of total wreckage in there lives.You have to trust God and yourself before you can trust someone else! It would depend on how long they had been in AA or NA.If they had been in recovery for a few years then yes I would date that person.If they had only been sober for a few months, then no I would not date them.
You have to trust God and yourself before you can trust someone else! Hi Rich - I been to Al Anon a long time ago myself. There are a lot more porgrams out there than AA or NA or Al-Anon.
After a few years, relapse rates are low to the point that I wouldn't even worry about it.
