Drinker dating a non drinker

If you’re going out to dinner, it’s okay to wait till you arrive, and when the wine list arrives just say, ‘Nah, I don’t do that anymore.’ Do it casually; whether to go into greater detail or not really depends upon the relationship.”Amy, a 32-year-old stylist who lives in Manhattan and has been sober for 10 years, tells of romancing a particular “normie,” who turned out to be anything but.

But truthfully, if I could actually find another non-drinker to date, I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t be here right now writing this post.2. ) DRINKINGThis is particularly upsetting when I’ve already been messaging with someone promising and he decides to ask me out for drinks, proving he didn’t actually read my online profile. There are always a million questions, and once I answer them all, they launch into all the reasons I should start drinking. Drunk tirades are annoying when your friends do it, but it’s 100 times worse (and far more embarrassing) when a stranger you’ve just met starts waxing poetic about the crush they have on their 7th grade English teacher.

I have been clean off drugs and alcohol for over three years.

IT’S DIFFICULT TO FIND SOBER PEOPLE TO DATEAs a non-drinker, I’m not opposed to dating people who like the occasional libation. Whatever the reason, people who *do* drink CANNOT let it go. THAT MOMENT WHEN YOUR DATE REACHES THE THRESHOLD WHERE HE THINKS HE’S MORE INTERESTING THAN HE ACTUALLY ISWe all know that special, endearing moment when an over-served person begins to think everything they say is absolutely mind-blowing (when, in fact, it’s actually getting less coherent by the sip).
