“When every guy I chatted with balked if I suggested we meet at a coffee place instead of a bar, I gave up on the apps,” says New York-based Sarah, 34.

Part of my issue was that I staunchly avoided the recommendation that I not date for my first year of sobriety. After all, I’d been holed up in my apartment for the previous few years with only cats and cocaine for company. I just had, as they say, a “broken picker.” Another popular recovery expression: “stick with the winners.” Alas, when it came to dating when I was new, I pretty much just stuck with the losers.
