Goodday All. What a lovely "Ignore Danny Monday"...lol
Just something I've had a little think about. Is 13th stepping all one way?
I remember my missus buying me a little fridge magnet kind of thing - the kind of thing that has funny sayings on it. It was a definition. It said "MAN - A rather simple machine that converts beer into piss". She loved it...lol. And as far as dealing with women is concerned, the "simple machine" bit is true of a lot of men I should imagine (it is of me...lol).
Now - On the 13th stepping front, men are pretty transparent when it comes to intentions. I'm just wondering if women are a bit more subtle? One thing I've noticed, both personally and around the rooms, is that when you give up drinking and sort out your debts, your bank balance improves remarkably quickly. This is not so for all, for a variety of reason, mainly health, but it is certainly true of many.
Now, a financially secure non-drinker, the majority of whom are approaching middle age, would make a pretty appealing prospect for a lot of women. Especially, I should imagine, the 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) time around club. I wonder if the rooms of AA have started to be a hunting ground for predatory women.
I'm not sure whether to post this or not. Definitely potential for flak coming my way...lol. As a sort of disclaimer, may I say I abhor 13th stepping in AA and have actively stepped in on 2 occasions where a particularly offensive culprit was concerned (same person both times - he doesn't like me...lol). It's just that I can remember a couple of occasions - both in the past, nothing current - where women with no particularly obvious drinking problem and rather vague stories, have quickly latched onto very "eligible" men in the roomz. Just wondering if anyone else had noticed it. An AA dating club - sound horrendous...lol
