On a trip to Paris with a new partner, he avoided carbs and sweets and ended up feeling like a killjoy. His companion wanted to partake in croissants, cheese, and chocolate, yet felt judged by Jacob.
Like dating, recovery is a process. Reconnecting with our authentic desires is at the heart of recovery. I suddenly began to reconnect to my intuition.

How long did you date your partner before he or she popped the question? It may have only been months, or perhaps it felt like an eternity. Here, nine couples reveal how long they waited and why. We are both really happy with how fast everything happened. We got married less than six months later than our engagement. We are both in our 30s, and I think once you reach a certain age, you know what you want and you know what you need and when you find it, you hold on tight. But then we got to know each other even more, we got into some necessary arguments, and our love grew even stronger.
