He admits while women seem on board with dating someone who doesn't drink, they don't always know what they are getting themselves into.

"I'm completely comfortable with the person I'm dating drinking, and even drinking around me," Ron says.

During the past two decades, I’ve dated both men in recovery and men who weren’t alcoholics (called “normies” by us in the program).

I’m currently single again, a sober divorcée in the strange world of online dating. How do you allude to your past (and present) situations without lying or scaring off a potential match?

So we’ve all heard on numerous occasions the suggestion in the rooms that unless you’re already in a relationship when entering recovery, you shouldn’t get into one in the first year. How often do we hear about people finding the love of their lives in a meeting within the first month off the booze? And how often do we hear of people going back out because the love of their life turned out to be a slightly psychotic stalker type and not the loving spiritual being they’d imagined? The barroom drama of screwing around, jealousy and sexual competitiveness does not magically disappear when people quit drinking or using or both.

If you want to witness some of the most twisted relationship encounters, you need go no further than the rooms of recovery…of any kind.

With the absence of our beloved chemicals to kill the pain of rejection and betrayal and hoist up our self esteem, how do we cope?

First, "remember that we are always sober," he says.Too often, recovering alcoholics and addicts find themselves in codependent relationships that lack healthy communication, goal setting, and problem solving.Because of the psychological problems that are a root cause for abusing drugs and alcohol, these issues transfer onto our marriages, relationships, and friendships.Dating a dude that's sober (like, full-blown, 12-step kind) can be a challenge.But even if you can't live without your happy hours, it doesn't have to be a deal-breaker, according to a guy who has sworn off booze. But it's not easy being the soda drinker in a party of two.
