How to respond positively to coffee requests if I don't drink coffee?

So I can't drink coffee because of health reasons. To name a few of those is, that it would interrupt my sleep pattern and an injection of too much caffeine during the second half of the day is a bad idea, more so terrible at evenings.
I managed to quit coffee around 2015 and I am not willing to sacrifice the benefits I got ever since.
It is not easy to quit coffee but it is easy to break the healthy cycle of living without being dependent on coffee.

But why am I asking this? I have never received invitations for coffee 😂
The same also counts for alcoholic beverages. I'm practically not a drinker at all.

It's still good to be prepared for those moments if I manage to get lucky one day.

  • 'Coffee' doesn't really mean coffee. It's just 'meet at a cafe', or at someone's house, or whatever, with the explicit implication 'not for a meal.' You can order whatever you want. Herbal tea or something might be good if you don't drink coffee, or I like milk steamers. Hot chocolate, even. Or a soft drink. Your date is not going to say 'Hey! We said we were meeting for COFFEE!' :P

    Unless you mean that other kind of 'come for coffee' which is like, when you're taking her home, and she says 'would you like to come in for coffee...' but what she means is have sex - just say yes. No one has ever actually made coffee at that point.

  • Lol. In all seriousness, you just go. Say yes, go, enjoy whatever the experience entails. You don't need to drink anything you don't want to, you don't need to drink anything at all. It's about the company, not the beverage.

  • just get something that isn't coffee and I think some bars sell pop. I was once at a bar with my dad and my uncle when I was 17 they let me sit in there (probably 'cause there was practically a monsoon outside) and my uncle bought me Pepsi

  • "Would you like to go get coffee?"
    "No, but I'd love to go get some tea! Is that okay too? You can still have coffee if you'd like of course"
    (Or any other beverage)

  • I never liked coffee. If my wife and I go to a coffeeshop, I usually get an Orange Juice or a diet soda.
