Dating someone you met in rehab
Give yourself the gift of time to focus on your own recovery.
If you think you might have a problem with love addiction, let your sponsor or an addiction counselor know.
If the thought of not being in a relationship for a year makes you feel panicked, there is a good chance that love addiction is one of the challenges that you need to address in rehab and in aftercare programs or support groups.
When you are drawn to the euphoria that comes with falling in love and want to continually repeat this feeling, you may be using love as a drug.
All of these elements add up to your feeling powerless, and they , unable to get closer to the love you’re searching for.
Because there are so many options available, dating has turned into a buffet.
If you are compelled to form romantic relationships and find it very uncomfortable to not have a partner, you may need to consider that you could have a problem with love addiction.
The time you spend in rehab is an important time in your life.
Another thing to keep in mind is if a new partner picks up a drink or a drug, it will be much harder for you to resist.
You think you “click” with someone, but he never asks you out again.
