Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate.A thread posted by someone saying that her alcoholic ex replaced her with another woman who would drink with him (another alcoholic perhaps) caused me to start to wonder what happens when 2 alcoholics get together. Do they both fall down at the same time and just lie there cuz one isn't sober enough to get the other one up?Do they fight about who cleaned out the bank account for the last binge? Do you know of a couple that are both addicted to a substance who have actually made their relationship work?Do they actually get along well enough that neither of them feel ashamed for the things they do? Or a couple that dived all the way to Hell together?Well one thing for sure, they can hit the skids together without one alcoholic dragging down someone, who in their dillusional mind thinks they can save them. An alcoholic is happy with the status quo when not being nagged.....alcoholics must be in bliss.
But interesting to think about this whole one's I have seen support each other all the way to hell. they are very happy when they are happy, which is very seldom, but alcoholic (real alcoholics)couples can often get brutally mean with each other, including fist-fighting each other.
its a really bad scene, and its so sad, cause they are actually sick, but no one can understand the addicts mentality, and so couples like that just support each other in a sick way, cause only they can understand each other. Since alcoholic is a generic term, it's hard to say.
its a road to hitting rock bottom Ever see the movie Days of Wine and Roses? I think we have more knowledge of relationships where one partner is an alcoholic and the other isn't. What if one is a fun drunk while the other is a mean drunk? Most addicts like an enabler around so if you both are sloshed, who's going to take care of you?
I think it's like anything else, depends on the people and the situation.
But hey, if two drunks are happy together and aren't breaking the law, good for them for finding a like instead of ruining other's lives.
