Before I met my current girlfriend on a dating app, I took a five-year break from dating to work on myself and improve my character.
The previous relationship ended acrimoniously, and I realized that I was as much to blame for that situation as my ex-girlfriend.
When I reached the point where I felt comfortable enough to make a dating profile, I had been in therapy for a few years already. Luckily I had learned enough in my sessions that I managed to avoid botching this new relationship right from the jump. I was impressed with my ability to endure despite how long it went along. Now we’ve been together for several years and I think about proposing to her almost daily. Originally we had a small impasse over my cannabis use. In her defense, she had a brother who used cannabis on top of his alcoholism, so it was hard for her to separate the two drugs when she thought about his bad behavior in the past. Eventually she came around and even asked me to let her try some cannabis flower products one day after I had just returned from shopping at the local medical cannabis dispensary. She took a few hits off my pre-rolled joint and immediately fell into a euphoric lull. Now my girlfriend is a huge fan of cannabis and already went out and got her own medical marijuana card so she can shop at medical cannabis dispensaries without needing my help. She’s been buying cannabis vape pens lately because of the sheer convenience, but I’m not a fan of the cost. It’s $50 for a half-gram of cannabis oil inside one of those cannabis vaporizer cartridges.
