For seven years, my boyfriend and I made the four-hour trek from Yuma, AZ to Laughlin, NV every weekend.
I learned early on how to lie to my family and friends and how to sign my employers' name to company checks.
Nothing is for sure when it comes to relationships but dating someone in good recovery, particularly if you have done some work on yourself, can be very rewarding. But if so that will be because you too are committed to learning and growing.
One thing is for sure: relationships are to learn from.
