Let’s face some of life’s harsh realities right off the bat:

-Magical slippers do not exist and will not transform someone into royalty.
-Woodland creatures will never come to your aid or make your clothes for you.
-The opportunity to defeat a dragon or a sea-witch will never come your way.

While fairytales unfortunately are not real, that doesn’t mean that being in love in real life can’t bring you a happiness that feels a lot like you’re living in one. And that kind of happiness can only come from sharing your life with someone who is always there for you and loves you no matter what. We’re not saying we have the almighty secret to finding your soulmate, but we do know one thing for sure: the person you spend your life with should be the one you want with you during the good times and the bad times.

Those who have struggled with porn can often feel that they are broken and beyond repair. They may feel like no one could ever love them due to their past. But someone who has beaten a struggle with porn can be a great partner because of this past struggle, not just in spite of it. Here are a few reasons why Fortifiers who have overcome their pornography addiction can be just as close to a Prince Charming or Darling Damsel as anyone else.

Pure Of Heart

Let’s be real; we’ve all messed up. Mistakes are a part of life and no one is immune to them. A Fortifier is someone who has put their freedom and happiness as a top priority and changed their life to make them a reality. Goodness isn’t about preserving some untouched version of ourselves, it’s about constantly working toward it.

If you want to be with someone who understands the value of self-improvement and is always seeking to better themselves, those who have successfully overcome addictions as tough as pornography are at the top of the list.

True In Word

Addicts stay in a habit of lying while Fortifiers practice complete honesty and accountability.

Recovery is about breaking down walls and building connections. People need to be open and vulnerable so they can get to a place where their vices don’t have power over them. One Fortifier gave this example in his recovery:

“Once I started my recovery, being honest became so important, almost sacred. Now it’s just second nature, I have to be careful I don’t just blurt out everything about myself on a first date.”

With honesty and communication being two of the most vital parts of a relationship, ex-addicts have put into practice holding themselves accountable and being totally open with those closest to them.

Mighty In Deed

Here’s a question: what would you do if you knew someone gave up everything for you? What if you knew that some had put themselves through hell to be able to love and to have you? What would you think after learning that someone fought tooth and nail for the sole purpose of being their best self for you?

Well, if you’re dating a former addict, that’s what has happened.

Everyone in the Fortify Program and everyone fighting porn is fighting for the ability to love and love for real. Maybe they have someone in their life already but it is often their future partners and family they are battling for. A recovered porn addict is someone that has valued the freedom to love so much that they literally changed their life to be able to have it. They have championed over their inner demons. And the best part?

They did it all for you.
