Or as I like to refer to it my big dating “manstake”! They make you think it’s about you but really it’s all about them. especially if you’re an attractive partner they can show off.
Entering new relationships after being hurt is a scary risk to take. It took several years after my divorce to even be open to it but it was only when I actually figured out why I was self sabotaging and why I had so much dating FOMO that I could enter a healthy relationship.
Sometimes we feel that we’re ready when in reality we really aren’t.
we are looking to have fun chatting with others, and everyone is welcome to leave us a message/comment on our pics etc.
*if you dont get a reply on the chatbar, we arent ignoring you.
It’s up to you to really do a good self-assessment to figure it all out ().
by Mari Casey The most difficult part of my recovery today, the most terrifying prospect in my life is not related to an urge to use or a potential relapse. They recommend a year without sex when you first get clean. I say fuck off and walk off feeling self-righteous. But it’s more awkward because I know there’s a huge part of me that I’m not telling yet. At some point during the second date I tell him I’m in recovery. It’s blurted because I’m nervous about it, and naturally, that’s how information comes out in an anxious setting: without much grace. Oh, we’ve had two conversations and now we have the type of relationship in which you get to be proud of me? And say it in the high-soft voice with which you’d congratulate a toddler for using the big-girl potty for the first time.
—except I have four years clean, and just the thought of going on a date turns me catatonic. I appreciate his effort, forced and condescending as it might seem, he meant it to be nice.
I didn’t do it then, but I might get it now, and not for lack of desire. The scenario that most terrifies me goes something like this: I meet a man I like. Of course, nobody can or should tell everything on the first date. It might happen when he picks up the wine list and asks if I’d like to try a merlot. He has sympathetic eyebrows and says in a voice raised half an octave, “Oh. I’m really proud of you.” Which is what nice people say. Because now that you know, vaguely, that I used to do drugs—that stereotypically dark, gritty, felonious lifestyle—speak to me as if I’m a good little girl.
