Alcoholic and dating again
Because the alcoholic already has a date and his or her name is alcohol.And, unfortunately for you, alcohol is THE ONE AND ONLY for the alcoholic. Alcohol will always be the priority of the active alcoholic.There’s a merry-go-round quality about the systems and functions and habits that occur in an alcoholic home.Soon enough, that merry-go-round becomes a hamster wheel and even after you’ve grown up and moved out, you still run races you’ll never win.Some might think it strange that such people do not learn from their mistakes and try and hook up with moderate drinkers or teetotalers. Many serial daters of alcohol addicts grew up in an alcoholic family system.One or more of their family were drink dependent and had to be looked after.As a child, you love this person so intensely and are so dependent on them.Then there’s the inevitable fact that they are emotionally incapable of demonstrating their love in a way that will seep into your bones the way kids need it to.
Unless an alcoholic (or any addict) wants help then don't even bother trying to help them.
You’ve met someone you really like, they are intelligent and charming.
