A blind date once asked me to meet him near his office.
I can’t take the smell, it also really bothers my eyes and lungs. I mentioned meeting James in a recent blog, and that he breaks a deal breaker. He’s quitting, but with how hard it is for him to give it up, I still label him as a smoker.
I have a lot of close friends who smoke, and it drives me crazy. Now I believe he’s trying to quit, but I don’t know how successful he’ll be, and I’m not sure how to handle it. Since he started quitting before he met me, I know he’s doing it for him, which is great. I want to support him, but not hound him about it either.
If You’re A Non Smoker Dating A Smoker: I’ve always had deal breakers, but I recently realized how you can overlook them if you really like the person.
This still may not work out, but I’m going to give it a shot.
I’m the kind of idiot who has dated not one but two pot dealers. The dynamic between the three of us never really recovered after that. He was always stoned, and if he wasn’t eating wasabi peas with his shirt off on the floor, he was having a “dark spell.” Usually a dark spell consisted of a deep stare and a story about various bloodcurdling things. They’re from the prisons.” I said, “Yeah, that’s sad,” to which he responded, “Let’s go dig one up.” I declined, and he got really upset. She smoked a lot of pot, which wasn’t my thing, but I figured if it didn’t interfere with her grades or life, it wasn’t a big deal. Then I found out from friends that she was in fact, the kingpin drug dealer of the school. I was really on the straight and narrow until I met him, but as our relationship got more serious, so did my dependence on weed, kind of a pre-req for being around him.
