Sober dating site personals dating match locator
After due diligence of searching around I found none or rather none that were legit or functioning.I initially created the ORIGINAL sober dating site,12Step (est.There are so many raw feelings when dating sober (especially when first getting sober when pretty much all our feelings are raw) about acceptance and rejection and the general “dance” people play when dating and yes, drama!This naturally occurs more often when partners get physical and it takes away from the focus of why the member is in the 12 Step Program to begin with - to focus on getting and staying sober!So Lovein Recovery is another option for a sober dating site.
Maybe that was one of the problems; in fact most likely it was the main problem.It is actually posted on the site, “It is suggested by Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12 Step Programs that their members hold off one year before dating or getting involved in romantic relationships.” The main reason for that is relationships are the number one reason that members “go back out” – a term frequently used for “relapsing”.Relationships of any kind (Husband/Wife, Mother/Son, Friendships, etc.) can attribute to members relapsing however it is usually the relationships involving dating and yes, sexual relationships that attribute the most to members going “back out”.Advance quite a few years later and having realized that my three previous sober dating websites are devoted mostly to sober singles living in and practicing the principles of 12 Step Programs, I came to realize that all singles living sober are not all members of 12 Step Programs but just choose to live a sober lifestyle, for whatever reason – whether it’s just to live a healthier lifestyle or they realize they have a drinking or drug problem and are able to stop on their own without the assistance of a 12 Step Program.
There was one site I located for dating sober but it was not a functioning site – I could never get the search feature to function and there were other bugs that made the site not very “user-friendly”.Well, you go and find yourself a sober dating site devoted only to singles living a sober lifestyles and possibly also practicing the principles of a 12 Step Program.
