Like lots of people, I ride a rickety daily roller coaster of moods and emotions, but man or no man, my overall frame of mind has improved considerably since the summer of 2006. Highly rated by their teen clients and their families, Paradigm Malibu offers programs for a really wide range of adolescent disorders including: depression, anxiety, personality disorders, substance abuse, behavioral addictions, and eating disorders.I’m 34, single, and sober, and I’m ready for a little companionship with a funny, sensitive but not-too-normal guy. This Arizona rehab prescribes high doses of AA meetings and backpacking for young guys who not only need to get sober, but also learn the basics (think cooking and cleaning) of living in the real world.Most of the men I dated in early sobriety were drinkers. Tall and dark with long eyelashes (my weakness), he was sexy in a skater-boy way (I never got over my sixth-grade propensity for Vans and bowl-cuts).Not alcoholics, but average Joes: the kind of guys who had no trouble stopping after a couple of glasses of wine; the kind of guys who couldn’t remember the last time they puked up all 12 of the Stella Artois drunk the night before. He was a friend of a friend, whom I’d casually admired for months, and his warm, easygoing manner won me over right away.
I thrilled at the thought of never having to experience another hangover.But it bothered me deeply that my sobriety—something I was proud of, something I’d worked hard for—could be an issue for him. As it happens, Craig wasn’t the first guy who was unsure how to handle the fact that I no longer drank.His uber-casual comment made me feel like there was something wrong with me for being unable to drink like a Normal Person. ) My therapist urged me to break it off, worried that Craig’s cluelessness might drive me back to the bottle. More than a few promising Internet dates magically disappeared after they learned that I was sober. I was kind of miffed as to how he could know this having never met me in-person. During that time, I did however think it a tad odd that he said if we met and hit it off he wouldn't go out with anyone else that he would date me exclusively; he felt like there was that much potential.
In my view, most that are separated and looking to establish a new relationship are physically separated from one's spouse and are prepping to be ready (physically and emotionally) to meet another.
