I am brutally honest and blunt. Instead of waiting until the 2nd or 3rd date to be asked "why don't you drink", I'll just be upfront: I'm 2 1/2 years sober and consider myself a recovering alcoholic. It's part of who I am and it has never bothered me that some women make up other excuses for not going out again. Yeh I'm different, but I'm not an Alien. I have feelings and I am lovable. I have turned what may be a weakness for many into a one of my biggest strengths. I get joy out of sharing my sobriety with other alcoholics by speaking about my recovery in rehabs, hospitals, and prisons. I'm looking for someone who has read this far and not passed judgement, someone who has a deep respect for the challenges I overcome everyday and loves that I am emotionally and mentally strong. It doesn't bother me if you drink, I just prefer that you're not a Friday/Saturday night blackout drunk.
I am very social, outgoing and know how to make people laugh. I lack sarcasm. I am either golfing or skiing every weekend. I work as a Media Analyst at an Advertising Agency and my career is a priority. Anyways, Let's save something to talk about for the date (although I've pretty much spilled my soul in an online dating profile)
