Top sober dating sites
I got several messages on the site that day, but two stood out.One was from a successful businessman with silver hair. Having portrayed myself as the overthinking hedonist's Marilyn Monroe, I could not bear to disappoint them.Back when I was drinking, I wouldn't have responded to me either.My first weeks on the site were choppy, but I soon became accustomed to the routine. The coy banter that allowed you to tease out someone's personality.
After I got sober, I worried I'd never have sex again.
I swear I was in love with myself by the time I finished, a bottle having morphed into a six-pack of beer, and I posted the hottest picture of myself I had: a close-up taken by a professional photographer in which I appeared 20 pounds lighter than I was.
I woke up the next day to a kitchen clogged with cigarette smoke, and the memory surfaced in pieces: I think I joined a dating site last night.
It granted me the clarity that "hanging out at the bar" often lacked. How I missed those beautiful, damaged men, but we kept our distance from each other.
One of the great, unheralded aspects of Internet dating was that the word was in the title, thus eliminating any ambiguity. Occasionally I would e-mail one of them, and they never wrote back, and I got it.
