I am interested in dating now and find myself attracted to another Al-Anon member, a single dad with several years in the program. I would just keep it friendly and work my program and let the chips fall where it may ....u have been in for 2 years, him several right???

I am sure this is not the first time this has happened in the program but how does one navigate this? I'm attracted to him for many reasons, not the least of which is I appreciate that he's in the program and gets the work we each do on ourselves. seems to me he isn't ready yet to do anything but his program...i know for me, its been 12 years and i didn't want ANY thing to do w/anyone of op.
