I had a great day today. Two meetings and time with the boy I'm crushing on. Yes, there's a guy...and a crush. Dating sober is a very new deal to me. I was a get drunk, talk all night, fall in love the first week, and do each other kind of girl. This getting to know each other before jumping into a relationship is something I've never done. I was always so needy and insecure that I would fall into a relationship before even getting to know the person. That is not the case anymore. It's amazing to have standards.
One of the favorite things I have learned in sobriety is that I'm okay alone. That's an amazingly powerful thing for a women to know. It also helps in the taking it slow process. I think alcoholics tend to rush in to relationships for exactly that the "rush" It's so easy to pick up a relationship as a quick fix. But I have never seen that turn out well.
I don't know if I've ever told you guys this but I have read ever book known to man (or women in this case) about dudes, from The Rules, Act like a Lady and Think like a Man, to He's really Not that into You. So this guys got it hard. But so far he's doing pretty well.
Men!? Come on girls lets dish!
