As a drinker, would you like to date someone who hasn’t been drinking?
I think most non-drinkers (especially recovering alcoholics) wouldn’t be interested in dating someone who drinks, but what about drinker preferences?
I never really thought about it, but as a drinker I guess I would prefer my partner to drink too. However, it wouldn’t be a breakup for me if she didn’t drink. My wife likes to have a few drinks with me, but I certainly wouldn’t leave her if she quit.
But there are plenty of single Texans who say they wouldn’t be interested in dating a non-drinker. According to a survey of more than 3,000 single Americans by Detox.net, nearly one in five Texans say a potential date as a non-drinker would be a breakup for them.
Gender made a huge difference in the poll. 19% of men surveyed would have no problem dating someone who gets a little drunk, compared to 5% of women.
So we would like to know whether or not you would date a sober one. Let us know in the poll below.
