Maintaining a healthy relationship requires working to improve your own character, not obsessing to find someone who can make you feel better about yourself. Typically, healthy relationships follow this pattern:

Keep working on your sobriety
If you find that you’re not ready for a relationship today, don’t get discouraged.As you grow in your sobriety, you will be able to add more things to your life, such as a healthy dating relationship.

Take it slow
Relational intimacy should grow like a tree, not weed. In a healthy relationship, you start with simple introductions and the relationship grows slowly as you spend time getting to know the other person.

Maintain friendships
It’s healthy to have a group of friends and to maintain those friendships even when you’re dating someone. Your whole world shouldn’t revolve around one person. If it does, you’re setting yourself up for unnecessary emotional pain.

Maintain healthy expectations
There are still problems and struggles in a healthy relationship, but they are dealt with openly and constructively. Frustrations come up, but they are communicated appropriately and dealt with openly. Instead of responding to unrealized expectations with dramatic antics or personal attacks, those in a healthy relationship bring up frustrations while still maintaining respect for the other person.
