Sober and single dating site
Remember, you don't have to stay anywhere, or with anyone, that makes you feel anxious. My friend Michelle, a 29-year-old recovering alcoholic, tells guys she dates that she's a "reformed party girl" or an "ex-bad girl." She doesn't explain further, and they usually don't ask.
If they do, she just says "long story" and changes the subject.
Stay healthy with advice and tips on dating without alcohol.
You don't want to know the ludicrous number of possible love connections I've squashed by getting sloshed on a first or second date.
And there was no way to tell, when I was tossing back a vodka soda, which me would emerge that night.
But when I said goodbye to alcohol and its commensurate drama, I didn't intend to bid farewell to dating.
One of the healthiest things you can do for yourself as a dry dater is learn how to leave when you're in an awkward situation. Unless you want to pop open a can of inappropriate, be evasive when your date asks why you don't drink.Meeting for coffee or tea is a great first date option; there's no lengthy dinner service to endure, so if s/he doesn't float your boat, you're free to bail post-latte. Hot Buns doesn't request your input about where to meet and instead asks, point-blank, "Want to meet for drinks on Thursday? Offer these three words: "I don't drink," followed by something you will do, i.e."I don't drink, but I'd love to meet you for coffee on Thursday." Or, if you're cool with watching him imbibe, say that—"Sure, although I don't drink, but I don't mind watching you while I sip a Diet Coke." No need to explain further.3.I'd had enough embarrassing nights out; I'd woken up beside more than my fair share of unattractive strangers, and was, in turn, more than ready to bid farewell to the drunken rants, crying jags and battles with lovers, friends, cab drivers, cashiers and waiters.I also thrilled at the notion of never having another hangover.
