Boy meets girl on AA campus is a analogy in the AA Big Book, which points out that rarely does early recovery love relationships work out Boy; "She looked at me from across the hallway before the meetings started, I think she wants my body! Friend; "have you looked at yourself lately? Think she is really that sick? Boy walks over to meet girl after the meetings were over; "I saw you looking at me across the hallway and thought I would introduce myself".
Boy: "A pretty good while now I think today is day Girl: Moving her hair back with a sweep of her head in one direction, replies; "I started working on becoming an independent, empowered woman about 6 weeks ago. I go to 3 meetings a week, and take the city bus to them all by myself. I'm not nearly as needy as I once was!
Boy; "I live in a half way house, we have a curfew, and have to make a bunch more meetings than any one really needs, I'm pretty sick of it. I just got a part time job at McD's and with my first paycheck I'm going to buy me a bicycle.
I'm so tired of walking and taking the bus all over the place". My therapist says I am doing really good and we'll continue working on my mommy issues until they are resolved, and while it will be a long recovery process I will get to live a much more fulfilling life soon. I think my meeting you today is a sign from our Higher Power!
Girl: Wow, are you for real? You'd want to take me out?? Oh my gosh, I am so surprised that someone of your caliber would even talk to someone like me, and even do it in front of his AA buddies! Sure, I'd love to go out for a hamburger with you, I can ride with you on your handle bars, and we'll share a hamburger, no need to spend a bunch of money on me, besides I don't eat very much because I tend to vomit after I eat so it would be a waste of your money! Boy: okay, where do you live so I can pick you up right after I buy my bicycle?
Girl: I can't tell you, we aren't allowed to have visitors there, and not suppose to let any one know its address. It's a battered woman's shelter. Police took me there after they realized I suffer from battered woman's syndrome and was threatening to kill the next man that touched me.
Boy: Okay, it sounds like a plan! We'll hook up there, and go to McD's, then on a serious note, talk about getting out of our current situations and finding a place together. What do you think? Girl: Sounds like a blessing in disguise! I agree, our HP brought us together today! By the way, I'm getting my drivers license this week, so we'll be able to get a uhaul when the time comes. I have so little that it will sit in the front seat of the u-haul and we can use the whole back part of it for your new bicycle!
They both smile at each other in such a way that they know it was meant to be Boy thinks Girl thinks Boy; I truly feel like we were meant to be together forever and forever, so I wanted to ask you Girl: Tears swell up in her eyes, "I didn't think any one would ever ask me that We'll start making plans as soon as we have our own place!
They smile, lean across the table to hug each other, knowing that this is truly a gift from God. I wrote this on the Al-Anon board just a few weeks ago, so tonight thought I would share it here Ya know John, and I'm quite sure you seen the same, I've observed very similar scenarios like this one in the meetings I attend Most do NOT end well But I will have to admit also, that there those rare instances where those with a few years under their belt DO, in fact marry, and spend years together supporting each others sobriety I know that most other groups around have the same recommendation Thanks for the post How's your sister?
I pray she is not suffering God Bless, Pappy. Hey Toad, Someone once told me that when people told you they were just 'fine' Hope that's not your case That was great! I'll now share another tidbit of wisdom I got form my first sponsor on this very topic. He said:. Darling, if you've come to AA to find romance, well, the odds are good But the goods are odd. LOL David12x12! I like that one, will probably steal it from you and your sponsor and use it some time. My dream girl turned out to be "Attila The Hun".
Who says old men aren't lucky. Thanks, John for reminding me. You're welcome! I wasn't sure if I should post it since it's a little Oh what the heck:. I've never seen you here before. Are you new?

Sick people attract sick people! Fyne Spirit. When I forst came in she would have been my dream girl, and the whole deal would have been my ideal relationship. You don't know what you don't know.
Luckily,when I jumped into exactly that scenario, my sponsor let me learn what I needed to learn. Among other things I learned it was wrong for me, what needed to be done about the resulting resentments, and also that I didn't need to drink over it. One of the best experiences of my sobriety.

The prospective partners need to be solid A. They need to be as sure as possible that no deep-lying emotional handicap in either will be likely to rise up under later pressures to cripple them. The first few years of sobriety are, in my opinion, tenuous, though I know of course that we are never, ever safe. As for deep-lying emotional handicaps, well, I think we all have them, and the longer the live the more we will see them. I hope, though, that by living sober in the program we are more able to deal with them when they rise up.

In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer; takes readers on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it. He asks his students to write about an event that changed their lives, and one essay blows him away a gruesome, harrowing story about the night more than fifty years ago when Harry Dunning's father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a sledgehammer. Reading the essay is a watershed moment for Jake, his life like Harry's, like America's in turning on a dime. Not much later his friend Al, who owns the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to the past, a particular day in

I can tell someone I love them but if that is all I ever do the feeling and word are both moot. Mike cared enough about me to do that even though it was also painful for him. One of the more common yet still wonderful examples of love in action I see is the compassion we show to others who are in pain. My experience however with romantic love has been a 30 year bust. I am a slow learner but I do learn.
