Meet and falling for someone who has depression and alcoholism. Bad idea?

Romance. Introspect about the morbid fascination for this :"falling for". Is it loneliness, self-esteem problems, neediing control. There will be others in the relationship, alcohol and the aa counesor.
Danger Ahead. Do either of your parents or a first degree relative suffer from depression or alcoholism? I ask this question as we are often attracted to people where we familiar with the dynamics, even if we are uncomfortable. We naturally avoid situations that are both unfamiliar and uncomfortable. Letting familiarity guide our choices can lead to unhealthy co-dependent relationships. Proceed with caution.
