After due diligence of searching around I found none or rather none that were legit or functioning.I initially created the ORIGINAL sober dating site,12Step (est.Two dysfunctional, active alcoholics do not make for the best relationship!I was not sober at the time and not to be cliché but dating is tough!So I started online dating back in 1998 when everybody told me “You’re crazy and going to get killed”. I always considered myself “relationship challenged” and that was when I was still drinking.Maybe that was one of the problems; in fact most likely it was the main problem.There are so many raw feelings when dating sober (especially when first getting sober when pretty much all our feelings are raw) about acceptance and rejection and the general “dance” people play when dating and yes, drama!
