dating a non drinkerPage 1 of 1    
I've met some great woman here and I don't drink. No big deal for me or most woman. I haven't for 30 yrs but I date those that Do lol I've met a couple that seemed to feel strange even after a few dates that they were and I wasn't. I wonder WHY? I go to bars, Enjoy Bands, Dance, I live on a Skydiving Drop Zone where almost everyone drinks, Bonfires and parties every weekend LOL. I don't live in an alcohol free environment at all. I wonder why a drinker would be uncomfortable?

I do not drink either. Definitely think it hurts more than helps when it comes to my social life and dating, especially for my age range. I get the impression that some women automatically think I must be less fun than someone who drinks.

I also don't drink. It seems to make some people very uncomfortable, like I'm being judging them if they do drink. I don't mind if my partner drinks, so long as they don't drink to the point of being drunk. I had one guy tell me I'd never be able to find someone that didn't drink and/or do drugs (including pot) and another become almost over-protective of me if people were drinking around us, which was rather awkward... I really don't know the whys, it's just weird...

Well... This is Minnesota :P All we have is hunting, drinking, and mining... At least, that's Northern Minnesota.

I don't drink either, so I can sympathize. It's just part of the culture around here, in my experience. So people who don't drink are automatically castigated as being unusual. I don't think I could name another person I personally know who doesn't.
