Dating a pot head
It got to a point where I just became so frustrated with the inconvenience. " – Meghan, 29, journalist, NYC The Industry Insider "My boyfriend is super supportive of me being in this industry, working for a vaporizer company.It really doesn't work for me to be out at a restaurant or have plans to go see a play later and for him to say 'I can't because I have to go smoke.' That necessity was totally disruptive. I bounced around on different medications to try to fix that, and nothing really helped until I tried smoking. I had a boyfriend with a very low sex drive, and it was too much for him. He's a musician, and cannabis and music often go hand in hand. All his friends come over and try the vaporizers, giving real-time feedback.I used to have so much fun when I drank, and now it's just not that fun anymore.When I smoke, I like who I am a little bit more, and I'm able to express myself better." – Kristin, start-up founder, NYC The Third Wheel "I was dating this guy who was otherwise very sweet and wonderful, but there was an addiction issue.It was like having a third person in the relationship. Now, I am an everyday weed smoker, and I do think it helps my depression..my relationship with my boyfriend. The way dating is today, the girl can be the aggressive one, going after the guy.I broke it off." – Lee, 24, fundraiser, Boston, MA The Medical Marvel "Depression has run in my family for generations. I've tried every antidepressant under the sun, and nothing ever really worked for me. A bunch of my friends don't use cannabis, and they're like, 'How do you do that?My friends always said having sex while high on weed was so good that you shouldn't do it, because you wouldn't enjoy sober sex as much. High sex makes your mind and body more sensitive to pleasure, and in comparison to drunk sex, it's less...aggressive?You don't remember the act of it as much as the feeling because you are in another state of mind.
When we have sex after smoking, there's definitely more of an observational quality to it.They become so dependent on smoking all the time that you don't know if you like the person better stoned or not stoned.It gets to the point where it is confusing what their true nature is.I'm kind of outside myself, observing, instead of in it and in my head. And afterward, I feel like I'm more open to talking about something that happened or something that I liked.Alcohol for me is definitely a depressive experience.
