A lot of the men in this city do drugs. The last 3 guys I dated were all from different backgrounds, walks of life and worked in various fields of employment. I met one online and two in person. All of them were actively struggling with addiction, relapsed or in some sort of recovery program.
This weekend I went on a date with someone who I thought was cute and from his photos looked like a fit healthy guy. When I mentioned my last relationship didn’t work because my ex relapsed this person then revealed he was still going through his recovery process of using multiple hard drugs. He was at least honest enough with me to admit he was at risk of relapsing after our first date. Decided not going to continue dating this person, I’ve been through way too much heartbreak.
Is there something wrong with me? Am I just picking the wrong dudes? Is there something wrong with this city? Is Vancouver really that fucked up?
It also just baffles me that the men I am finding myself on dates with continue to play Russian roulette with party drugs (like coke) while the opioid crisis is going on. Don’t get it, at all.
