Caution... Alcohol Makes Dating/Hook Ups Hazardous

Caution... Alcohol Makes Dating/Hook Ups Hazardous
At a party and met someone? You are drinking and feeling good? They like you, enough to hurt you?

4. If you are dating someone who gets drunk all of the time and always seems fun, know this up front. You are dating someone you don’t know. You know this person under the influence of alcohol. Part of the difficult treatment of alcoholism is people miss the drunk. The sober person may not be fun at all and may suffer from a depression that was medicated by alcohol.

5. Dating is fun, and you learn so much about yourself. The goal of dating is finding someone you share interests with and enjoying each other’s company. You deserve someone who finds joy in being with you as you do them. A drinker doesn’t find joy in the relationship. They find it in their drink.

 

Enjoy your single time, dating, and the company of others. This is a poignant time, and one that is looked back on with fond memories. When drinking is part of the mix, the memories may change from fond to heartbreaking. Many times you cannot “undo” the mistakes made while drinking on a date.
