THIS GUY HAD SENT ME MESSAGES ABOUT HIS ATTENDANCE AT CHURCH-SO, I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION HE WAS "RELIGIOUS". HE JUST RANDOMLY GRABBED MY CLENCHED HAND AND KISSED IT 10. HE MADE THE MOVE TO HOLD MY HAND (AND GOT DENIED) 19.HE IS A GUY WHO BELIEVES “NICE GUYS DO FINISH FIRST.” HOWEVER, HERE ARE THE FOLLOWING REASONS WHY OUR DATE SUCKED AND WHY HE’LL BE SINGLE FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE! HE SAID MY SHOES WERE “UGLY” (THEY WERE CLASSIC NEW BALANCE-TO EACH HIS OWN, I GUESS) 2. I GOT A CRAMP IN MY SIDE TRYING TO LEAN AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE FROM HIM 11. HE ASKED THE FOLLOWING STUPID QUESTIONS -WHY DO YOU SMILE SO MUCH? HIS PROFILE NAME IS AFTER HIS FAVORITE BASKETBALL PLAYER THAT HE’LL NEVER BE LIKE B/C HE’S TOO SHORT 20.“It’s created by people in recovery for people in recovery.” Shea promises the site—which just launched last month—is also very LGBT-friendly: “It’s hard enough to meet somebody in recovery if you’re straight, but trying to meet someone in recovery if you’re gay or transgender, where are you going to go?” The site is also unique in that unlike major dating sites like or e Harmony, users can see everyone else’s profiles—not just the ones a computer has deemed compatible with their interests.Says Kole: “The whole big picture is to empower people in recovery to do more, to reach out, to help others." Highly rated by their teen clients and their families, Paradigm Malibu offers programs for a really wide range of adolescent disorders including: depression, anxiety, personality disorders, substance abuse, behavioral addictions, and eating disorders.This Arizona rehab prescribes high doses of AA meetings and backpacking for young guys who not only need to get sober, but also learn the basics (think cooking and cleaning) of living in the real world.SOME OF THEM WERE STILL IN THEIR ORIGINAL PACKAGING AND PINNED TO COVER ALMOST EVERY INCH OF THE BEDROOM WALLS. WHEN WE WENT TO DINNER AND I ASKED HOW HE HAD RESEARCHED HIS SCREENPLAY "SHOOTER", HE CALMLY TOLD ME THAT IT HAD BEEN EASY - HE WAS THE REAL "SHOOTER" WHO HAD JUST BEEN RELEASED FROM A FEDERAL PENITENTARY WHERE HE HAD SERVED 10 OF A 20-YEAR SENTENCE FOR BANK ROBBERY AND, OH YEAH, "SHOOTING" SOMEONE IN THE PROCESS.
Through these various avenues, Shea and Kole are committed to connecting sober people all over the world, and look forward to the day they can put up the site’s own “e Harmony success story” billboards.Now that getting loaded and hitting on anyone within a 10-foot radius is no longer an option, dating in sobriety can be tricky.And while knocking boots with another sober person may seem like an ideal option, going out with someone from a meeting may be a step (or thirteen) towards disaster.DATE 2—I HAD AN INKLING THAT YOU WERE AS IRRITATING AS H-E-DOUBLE-HOCKEY-STICKS, SO I APOLOGIZE FOR WASTING OUR TIME.YOU TRIED SO HARD TO AFFIRM YOUR MASCULINITY TO ME THAT I’M SURE YOU’LL COME OUT OF THE CLOSET SOMEDAY.
THE REST OF THE INANE THINGS THAT HAPPENED ARE HOPEFULLY FOREVER BLOCKED FROM MY MEMORY.
