In the dating world would a woman mind if I don't drink alcohol?
Would a woman care if I didn't drink alcohol?

It's just like the whole vegetarian thing. I don't care if you don't eat meat or drink alcohol, as long as you don't make a fuss about me doing those things you don't do.
Although if the reason for you not drinking alcohol is because you were addicted and are trying to quit, then I'd be fully supportive and don't drink in front of you.3
They shouldn't. As long as you don't make it a huge thing and try to tell then that they can't drink.
I don't drink alcohol because I had a problem with it and dating was tricky at first... I never made a big deal out of it and quickly figured out that the guys who made a big deal of it most likely had a drinking problem themselves. It's not like you're telling them that they can't drink around you... That's the only issue I could see.
Quality women aren't going to be bothered by your choice to abstain from alcohol. And if they are then you wouldn't have been compatible anyway.2

I would not care at all as I hardly drink at all anymore myself. If a woman makes a huge deal about you not drinking at all, she's not somebody you want to be dating.1
id like you even more.
id burn all the alcohol in the world if i could.2
Generally speaking, when it comes to drinking, its best if you're "drinking habits" are somewhat compatible.
I like to drink a lot, so a guy who doesn't drink at all, would make me feel... off.. I'd always feel like he disapproves of me.
Also, why don't you drink? Religion? Recovering Alcoholic? Bad personal experience when you're younger?
Your reason can play into it too.1

It's not a big deal. I'd say it's 5% of the consideration process for me. He'd be 5% less attractive if he didn't drink alcohol but really the only time I drink is when I am vacationing at a resort or on a cruise. If I'm at an all inclusive and I'm with somebody who doesn't drink it will be hard to get along or justify spending time at the bar however it's not a deal breaker. If I like him then I like him.0
I wouldn't mind after all I barely consume any alcohol myself.2
I don't drink, so I wouldn't mind :)2
i prefer it2
No since I don't drink at all myself.1
I drink occasionally, but I wouldn't mind if a guy wouldn't drink at all. I'd respect him even more probably.:D As long as he doesn't mind me having fun every once in a while.:D0
i don't care1
I would actually be more attracted to that! I don't drink at all, and the guy I'm dating rarely drinks. I've seen some people in my family act crazy with alcohol, so I just prefer to date guys that aren't much into drinking.0

There are some that would give gold stars for this, especially if coming from abusive alcoholic relationships or keenly aware what liver damage does to a family.2
Some would care, some wouldn't. Obviously it would be an issue if you were dating someone who was a heavy drinker, it would just cause too much tension. But there are plenty of people who are light drinkers, and most light drinkers aren't going to care if you drink or not.2
I think it is very easy to say "oh I would have any problem with it". They might not, but I am telling you, many WILL.
Its one thing if you do not drink because of health reasons. It is much easier to accept that. It otherwise, then its tricky.
And why would you get "tempted"? You need to stick by your principle.
In my case, I dont drink because I am not allowed to. I have no will or desire either. And I have often got the "Oh... That is so lame... ".1
