Recovering addicts don’t expect perfection in their partners, having learned firsthand that it doesn’t exist.
Some are deeply spiritual people whose lives are infused with meaning and purpose, while others volunteer in their communities or have interesting hobbies that keep them grounded.
Because recovery is a lifelong process, recovering addicts are in a perpetual state of self-improvement.
Despite having a thorny past, recovering addicts can be some of the healthiest, most put-together individuals you’ll meet – with a few important stipulations.
First, the recovering addict should have at least one year of sobriety, and preferably many more.
After dating one dud after another, you finally find someone who seems to have it all – thoughtful, witty, responsible – and good-looking to boot.
