TRUE LIFE: I’M DATING SOMEONE WHO HAS AN ADDICTION
Is your boyfriend or girlfriend battling an addiction? Do you struggle with the challenges of dealing with his or her behavior? Does their dependency overshadow everything else in your relationship? Are you constantly fighting as a result? Maybe the pressure to be supportive and understanding is starting to wear you down. Perhaps you’re worried that you’re enabling their lifestyle and you need to put some distance between you. Or do you feel torn between disapproval from friends and family and loyalty to your partner?

If you are dating someone who has an addiction of any kind (drugs, alcohol, food, gambling, etc.) and you appear to be between the ages of 18-28, email us at Relationship@mtvn.com and tell us about your story. Be sure to include your names, location, phone number and recent photos of you and your significant other.
