Tanya, founder of the LoveRecovery Dating App shares her experiences of dating sober on this guest webinar for Club Soda.
After very many years of happy sobriety, I found myself suddenly single again two and a half years ago, oh boy, sober dating, sober sex, finding a sober relationship… ugh that’s difficult!
The final straw in a pretty fruitless chapter of my life and after giving the dating app quest my best effort, was being ‘matched’ with a bottle of vodka at 7am (cute advertising, but little did they know)!
I realised it was time for me to stop feeling sad about the pitiful state of my love life, find a little gratitude for the incredible gifts my sobriety has given me and do something about this inequality, the taboos and endless justification that seems to go with sober dating and dating apps.
Thus LoveRecovery was born… A place for all AF and people in recovery from drink/drugs to meet people with the same ethos and find those who prefer the benefits of a sober relationship or simply like-minded people for local friendship or when visiting a new area!
