incorporates various elements of social media, allowing users to ‘friend’ others in their area and list whether or not they are available to sponsor others who are actively looking for a nearby individual to take them through the steps.
The founder and CEO of this newly launched dating community, 22-year-old Antoine Nauleau, is sober himself – thus he is creating and perfecting his application based on personal experience and the trials and tribulations of similarly –circumstanced friends, who are looking for other sober singles like themselves.
I’ve had many periods of sobriety, from a paltry four months to a lengthy seven years (and everything in between).
During the past two decades, I’ve dated both men in recovery and men who weren’t alcoholics (called “normies” by us in the program).
I’m currently single again, a sober divorcée in the strange world of online dating. How do you allude to your past (and present) situations without lying or scaring off a potential match?
The old “I’ve wrestled with my demons and won” line? How about a simple, “I’m a pretty hot colossal f**k up”?
And we’re stoked that there is a free dating site for single people in sobriety now.
“Sober”, a dating app for those in recovery for drug and alcohol dependency, allows individuals to meet and communicate based on location – but this singles app, unlike its older brother ‘Tinder’, is not merely for hook-ups and uncomfortable blind dates.
It feels good to be able to chat with other sober people in other settings besides meetings.” While Sober was initially launched in San Francisco, there are plans to expand this dating app nationwide, making it widely available like Tinder is currently.
The app is free for users, but is currently only accessible on the i Phone.
With the recent devastating influx of heroin abuse and addiction among youth throughout the United States, the amount of young people in recovery has all but skyrocketed in recent years.
