Ask Amy: Many-married man wonders how to date
Dear Amy: I am in my mid-50s and have been married four times.
I am a recovering alcoholic and drug addict.
I abused substances for 35 years.
I have been clean for three years now and my life today is beyond my wildest dreams.
I have repaired the relationships in my life with family and have built solid friendships today with people I have met in recovery and at work.
I attend church and am a completely new person.
My old life was dark and suicidal, but my new life is beautiful and positive.
I have done a lot of work on myself, with the help of therapy and AA.
I believe I am the best version of myself today, however I am concerned with people judging me by my past life.
How do I start dating and explain four divorces?
