I like him, I like him not.

I am sort of dating someone. I am at that point that I like him, but going any further would be like taking a road lined in red flags. I'm not sure though if those flags are real or placed there by me because of my fear. But I do know this, one my biggest fears of dating was not being able to get out of it when I knew I should. I see that maybe happening here and it's scary.

I like him. I don't like him. I like him. I don't like him. Poor guy:)


  1. Poor you,

    Why not give it a chance?
    Every relationship is a risk.
    Not only for him but also for you.
    After all you only live today!!!

    Lots of happy times with that lucky man!!!

  2. Well I would have to know the pros and cons of this guy before I could give my two cents. Us alcoholics don't like to take risks, but baby....that's what life is all about. If we aren't willing to take some risks on the journey, we won't have truly lived. Don't let fear keep you single - you've got waaayyyy too much to offer someone sweetie - remember that!

  3. Hi Emily, I am happy you are dating and putting yourself out there!!! My only reservation is IF those red flags you are feeling are real, or if you are putting them up yourself, only you know for sure. I think, and this is only my experience, if you don't feel right, don't go with it, RUN!!!! You are so strong and deserve an equally strong and wonderful partner. Don't give more than of yourself if your not getting what you need.

    But, if I am reading into this to much, HAVE A BLAST and enjoy your relationship!!!

    Lots of luck!! You deserve only the best!!

  4. Hi Annette,

    In your post you are writing about "us alcoholics don't like to take risks..."

    I am a not-drinking alcholic but I am also a risktaker.
    I took the risk to drink for too many lifes in one life.
    I took the risk to stop drinking no matter what I was going to meet on that journey.
    Life is a risk but I like to take that risk every day.

    Just a thought I wanted to share with you.

    Emily, the red flags will show on the way or afterwards what they meant to you while you enjoy the company of this man.

    Lots of love to everyone and another happy sober day.

  5. Anon 2:28.....thank you for correcting me....meant to say "I" or "Me" - I didn't like to take risks - sorry, shouldn't have said "us".

  6. Hi Annette,

    Thank you for responding to me.
    Because you wrote "us" I was triggered to think about myself. So thank you!

    Love & light and a peaceful sunny sunday!
