One day I hope to be able to find true love and have a man in my life..now I just need God and this program. Heather Lo LAlways a great Topic When I work with sponsees, I tell them what the fellowship says (no new blah blah)I tell them what the BB says (we want to stay out of this controversy)I tell them my experience (train wreck of wreckage, incredible pain, hurting others, hurting myself, being in a relationship is like giving my character defects crack, blah blah yawn snore etc)I tell them it's not recommended but ultimately they always do what they are going to do anyway, the rules don't apply to them, they are "different" blah blah just like you (and me) When they come crawling back beat to a pulp, they sound just like you (and me) they are ready to follow direction and get real, and apply themselves to the steps, personally I think it's part of the process (for people who get sober young(er))we learn from our mistakes, and pain is the touchstone of all spiritual growth (because pain is the only thing that gets us off our asses to do the work)We are bludgeoned into sobriety, into humility, into honesty, because the pain is just too great otherwise Truthfully, the only thing I see "wrong" is (since I have been around awhile) the old timers who are most emphatic and controlling about this were either married, or did it themselves, which makes it a "do as I say not as I do/did" which is the EXACT opposite of "AA" which is "this is what it was like, this is what happened, this is what it's like now"In AA our liabilities, our suffering and the lessons we learned become our assets, not standing on a soap box and telling others not to make the same mistakes we did and not even admitting we did them My God let me make all my own mistakes, so did my sponsors, I try to do the same Now you know what happens for many of us when we get involved too early, the bad news is that happens regardless, just with some time and a few passes into the steps we have better tools to learn how to do it differently, celibacy doesn't make us better at relationships, only relationships make us better at relationships, celibacy gives us time to build a foundation in order to have tools to be better in relationships It is necessary that we extricate from an examination of our personal relations every bit of information about ourselves and our fundamental difficulties that we can.Since defective relations with other human beings have nearly always been the immediate cause of our woes, including our alcoholism, no field of investigation could yield more satisfying and valuable rewards than this one.Insanity is trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
I'm seeing relationships with my friends and family improving dramatically. (Amends to follow...) I was so miserable, and unhappy that I was reacting this way. He saw that he didn't want any part of this hot mess, and I saw that I simply can't do this. :(I have come to believe that my first priority has to be my recovery, and this setback was proof that I can't handle even dating, because I naturally fall back into old patterns that don't work. Jealousy, anger, criticism, blame, fearful of abandonment, easily irritated..I still want to be with a man. I am embarrased to admit that I evenbought the guy a toothbrush. I graduallybegan texting and calling him more thanmy sponsor and friends in the program. I thought, this won't go into a relationship..will take it slow. Quickly, far too quickly, within about 6 weeks, we found ourselves in "full on relationship mode"..I started thinking how this one could be "the one." Because that is what I do. He got me passes to his gym and started training with me. Just as quickly, things went from wonderful to crap! I started getting possessive and jealous of his time with his normie friends and lady friends, I started looking at his facebook with invesigative eyes... I stopped going to as many meetings and started replacing them with dates with this fellow.Match, the largest dating site in the world, pioneered the online dating category when it launched on the Web in 1995.Today, 19 years later, Match continues to revolutionize the way people meet, connect and fall in love.
