Sober and dating

19 Jan

The problem is that social networks like Facebook and dating apps, which have revolutionized the way we socialize and date, can be challenging and even alienate non-drinkers.After all, the standard ask-out line on dating apps is “want to grab a drink?” A new wave of sober social apps, Sober Grid, Clean Fun Network and Sober, are setting out to make the online territory a lot easier for non-drinkers to navigate.These apps also spare you the discomfort of revealing your own addiction struggles in an increasingly transparent digital world.The profile section of the app even includes a sobriety date and a place to briefly admit your substance abuse struggles.The creator of Sober, Antoine Nauleau, is a 21-year-old former addict.In order to do this, the website allows people to select a home group and keep it as a safe haven.

If they are drinking, this gives you a chance to be very honest and direct with them, which is always fun. It gave me a huge amount of self-confidence realising how easy it was to talk to strangers and finding something to talk about.” For the recovering addict, this obviously won’t work.Finding someone who understands what you’re going through can be very challenging.The site encourages its members to: “Keep your recovery first, in order to make it last!”Users can opt to maintain their home group as a safe space by not dating people in that group.
