I've never had an alcoholic drink in my life and don't intend to. I don't bring this up, I don't make judgements about others who drink, its just my personal preference and the only way others know is if I'm asked directly. Do you think its off putting to date someone who doesn't drink? Is that a total turn off or you think its whatevers.
I wouldn't date someone who didn't drink. Drinking is kind of important.

I wouldn't care if someone doesn't drink. It's not that importnant.
I wouldn't care if they drank or not unless they drank too much, or were rude about people that did drink. I drink on occasion. It's not necessary tho. Like I can go out and not drink and still have fun.
Personally, I would kind of prefer that since I don't drink myself and never have found the appeal in it. I don't care if people drink, but I just don't want to do it myself. Heck, I'll hang out with people and be the designated driver instead haha.
The problem is that a lot of the people looking for relationships around my age at my university seem to be big drinkers/smokers and want someone who does the same :/ But ehh, it is what it is.
I personally don't care. but a lot of women seem to. When I was dating online and met women for "drinks", I rarely drink. I just get pop. usually diet coke. I actually had a couple say they don't want to date someone that doesn't drink. They never said anything or asked me about it. I even put right in my profile that I drink occasionally. but I am on heavy mediation for back pain. It doesn't mix well with alcohol. So if I have to drive, I don't want to be drinking. I figure if alcohol means that much to them then best I am not with them.
I had a really cute friend who was sort of in to me and I could have made it work- but she doesn't drink and I never pursued her.. I think that is great, and good for you. While I am no big drinker, I do enjoy nice liqueurs, wine and the occasional wine. I like when me and my SO can go buy a bottle of wine, or a nice bottle of whiskey and look forward to that with/ after dinner.
I don't drink either except on special occasions like birthdays or holidays. But it kinda makes me more intrigued to date u because I always wanted to date the designated driver because I am the desginated driver too lol.
I would prefer it as I've never drank alcohol and I don't plan on it when I'm of age but I do realize some people enjoy it. I guess as long as he isn't drunk it's fine. I can do moderately tipsy but drunk is a no no for me! He would also have to be of legal age to drink because I don't support underage drinking.
