Signs you are dating an alcoholic
When your partner feels compelled to lie to you about his or her drinking habits and chooses to betray your trust, these are the unfortunate characteristics of an alcoholic.When you’re dating in your 20s and 30s, it can be hard to figure out if the person you’re dating is a social drinker like you and your friends or something much more serious.
Then you start to wonder about your date’s drinking, you always seem to meet in bars and a lot of alcohol is consumed.
For instance, your partner may suddenly become enraged when he or she learns that there's no more beer in the house or that the last bottle of whiskey was already finished by someone else.
Your partner may also lash out at the mere suggestion that he or she doesn't need to drink right now.
I’m going to go ahead and guess that you joined him at the tail end of a day of drinking or that he’s been popping pills to handle his hangovers.
He doesn’t take you out to fancy dinners because it’s out of his price range, but if you suggest that the two of you hit the bars, he’ll pick up tabs all night.
