Ok so, I've been talking to this guy a lot lately. Disclaimer, I'm not 100% sure we both have feelings for each other but I want to get everybody's opinion before I try pursuing this relationship (for lack of better term) or if I should keep things platonic. He does drugs, not a lot but recreationally. He also drinks, which I'm fine with but I don't do and will never do drugs. Am I asking for trouble? Especially since I'm not into drugs at all? They don't bother me but is it inevitable that I would probably get into them if I dated someone who did drugs often? I am just trying to figure out whether I should get my hopes up for this "relationship" or if I should keep things friendly. Thank you!
Alcohol is a drug... Plenty of drug users are decent people. It's generally the ones hooked on coke/crack, meth, or heroine that become a problem eventually. At your age though, a lot of people experiment with drugs and grow out of it as they grow older.
Hmm, i think the 'safe' option would be to keep things platonic, he seems to have a different lifestyle as you, which can work out, but from experience i know it can get hard in the long run. I'm sure there are a lot of nice people out there, who have a similar style of living as you
depends what drugs, how often and how long he's done them for. If it's harder drugs, or he's been doing them regularly for a long time, probably not he kind of guy you want to get involved with if it's a recent thing or weaker drugs like weed, might just be curiosity, and you could probs convince him to stop.
