If you are dating someone who has admitted to a past history of addictive sexual behavior you will need to know what to expect going forward.
If the person you are dating has been in sex addiction treatment for upwards of a year or more, then the chances are that he (or she) will not relapse into the prior behavior.
Did you know that most individuals who have experienced sex addiction and have taken their recovery process very seriously and remain committed to it for life can be some of the healthiest individuals, despite their past challenges?
Relationships in general take a lot of hard work, but many people are not willing to engage in the hard stuff to make their relationships easier down the road.
For example, a person who has abused alcohol needs to stay away from bars and heavy drinking venues to avoid temptation.
He continues to work on himself and to be engaged with other people in recovery.Being in a relationship with a recovering addict involves many considerations.While some people easily accept the notion that their partners were once quite different than they are today, others find it harder to reconcile the two.You feel in your “gut” that you can trust him to be aware of and take responsibility for his own continued growth.The addict is aware of what went wrong in his past relationships and understands how he retreated into his addiction, avoided intimacy, and hurt his partner.
