I'd had quiet sex, and giggling sex, and sex so delicate it was like a soap bubble perched on the tip of my finger.I knew such joy could exist between two people, but I had no clue how to get to it anymore.Booze had given me permission to do and say anything I wanted, but now that I was sober, the only thing I wanted most days was to watch Netflix.It's not as though every intimacy in my entire life had been warped by drinking.
In fact, sobriety can lead to a much bigger and more colorful social calendar. I’ll admit, I was also thinking that maybe it would inspire a young, sober guy to message me.We went to an AA meeting on our first date, went on to have a few more dates, and texted and spoke on the phone constantly. But, I’d be lying if I said it hasn’t crossed my mind that a Tinder for the sober community would be a brilliant idea—not necessarily for dating, just for the sake of meeting new people like myself.And yes there are quite a variety of dating websites to help you through the process of finding “your perfect match”.
But, when you add into the mix the fact that you are now living a sober lifestyle and hoping to find a partner who lives the same lifestyle, as well as with similar interests to yourself, where do you go?
So I started online dating back in 1998 when everybody told me “You’re crazy and going to get killed”. I always considered myself “relationship challenged” and that was when I was still drinking.
