Both sites are considered “niche” dating sites because they carve out a certain niche within the online dating community thus making it easier to find a sober match or soul-mate.
Having quite a few friends I’ve come to know over the years who were sober and a part of the GLBQT Community I came to realize there was a need for another sober dating site, a niche within a niche if you will, and that is how Sober Gay came to be.
As well as many other advanced search features to narrow down your search even more. W., if you are a member of Alcoholics Anonymous you can search for members only in AA, and the same with all the other 12 Step Programs.
(Keep in mind, the more selective you get the lesser search results you will receive.) On top of that if you are a member of a 12 Step Program you have the ability to search by that program. After all, there are dozens and 12Step has an extensive drop-down list to select from any 12 Step Program you can think of.
This naturally occurs more often when partners get physical and it takes away from the focus of why the member is in the 12 Step Program to begin with - to focus on getting and staying sober!
So Lovein Recovery is another option for a sober dating site.
YOUR DATE IS FASCINATED THAT YOU DON’T DRINK – AND WON’T SHUT UP ABOUT IT The “why” here doesn’t matter.
So I started online dating back in 1998 when everybody told me “You’re crazy and going to get killed”. I always considered myself “relationship challenged” and that was when I was still drinking.
It has a “Quick” search feature where you can search by basics, sex, age, location.
The Quick search also allows you to search within a certain mile radius (of your choosing) to your own zip code.
After my first year floundering around on and similar generic online dating sites I decided there was a true need for a sober dating site devoted to those of us living a sober lifestyle or in a 12 Step Program.
After due diligence of searching around I found none or rather none that were legit or functioning.
It also offers a few extra features including Instant Messaging and a really fun feature, LIVE VIDEO CHAT.
