Dating someone who is sober can make you think. And yet, it's not much different than dating someone who isn't in recovery. Honestly, the same foundations of successful relationships, it takes compassion and good communication to date someone who is sober. That feeling can be a drug in and of itself, not found in sober life (and especially in sober relationships).
That's why, with the help of some sober friends, I've put together suggestions for dating someone who is sober or dating someone who is. A cleaning fanatic and a more disheveled person have to make concessions in a shared living situation, and so will a sober and non-sober person. As most people in recovery will say, being sober involves living in a world that isn't sober, and a dating scene that is intrinsically linked to drinking alcohol to make things happen. However, there are many people who want to live a more sober lifestyle and need support to do so.
