Sober Dating

You’ve made the decision to get and stay sober. (You rock!) And while you’re definitely happier — and better off — not drinking, it can also be hard to meet people now that you’re not frequenting the bar. And you’re starting to doubt that you’ll meet your next date in line for a dirty chai at your local coffee spot. You’re ready to give online sober dating a try. And we’re here to help. Scroll down to learn how DatePerfect makes it easy.More >>

There are all kinds of misconceptions out there about what it means to live a sober lifestyle.

Like how people assume you can’t be exposed to drinking in movies (actually, it just makes you grateful to be sober!), or that you would never be caught dead in a bar, or even that you refuse to date people that do drink occasionally. We definitely encourage you to put your sobriety first and steer clear of stuff that triggers you when you need to.

But whether you’re sober as a part of your recovery, don’t drink alcohol because of your religious beliefs, or if you’d just prefer to date someone who steers clear of alcohol, we get that dealing with these assumptions can sometimes make it feel like you have fewer choices. But you definitely got sober to live life and participate in it fully, not to avoid it.

The good news?

There are tons of other people who don’t need substances to have a good time — and many of them are hanging out on sober dating websites.

Maybe you’re looking for a partner who is also in recovery, but your sponsor suggested you avoid dating people in your home group. You just feel like being with a person who understands what it’s like to struggle with addiction will make connecting and relating so much easier.

Or perhaps you’ve been burned by dating people who’ve had problems with alcohol in the past — and know that you just don’t want to go through that again. You’re tired of the fights, the secondhand embarrassment, and the anger that can come with a partner who drinks too much. You’ve decided that sober dating sites are the right choice for you.

You know that there are tons of fun date activities that you can do sober. You can see a play, head to the local park and challenge your date to an ultra-competitive round of basketball, or make a fool of yourself by taking a cook class together. Now, all you need is someone to do them with.

DatePerfect can help.

Whether you want someone who prioritizes their 12-step program the same way you do or just doesn’t drink due to religious beliefs or commitment to a healthier lifestyle, you might be surprised to learn just how many people are joining sober dating apps and sites.

Of course, it can be a challenge to find the best sober dating sites. That’s why we’ve done all the research for you. If you’re finally ready to meet your sober someone, we’ve got you covered. Check out our recommendations for the top sober dating sites below to make it happen.
