Dating someone with an addiction

What is your true motivation for working through this issue with your partner?

The constant feelings of insecurity, suspicion, and anger you might feel towards your partner can undermine the sense of intimacy and trust necessary to a healthy relationship.

No one should stay in an unhealthy relationship because they fear being alone.

Only you and your partner can decide whether or not to stay together, but making the best decision for your own wellbeing requires you to be truly honest with yourself.

Understanding the signs, symptoms, and psychology of sexual addiction is the first step in evaluating whether or not your relationship is worth saving.

By gaining a better understanding of your partner’s addiction, you will also shed light on your own emotional state.
