I'm *trying* to date and I encounter this constantly. WHY is it such a big deal that I choose not to drink alcohol??

And God forbid you say you had a problem with it but have since gotten that monkey off your back. Quit smoking? Congrats! Quit drinking? You fucking weirdo.

I don't drink. I decided when I hit 35 that I just didn't like it anymore. Most everyone I know knows that I don't drink and nobody cares. It's literally never been an issue. If I got to a bar, I drink water, diet coke or sometimes I'll go crazy and have a Roy Roger's (easy on the Roy, heavy on the Rogers).

I met a twenty-something not drinking while at a bar. I asked why and they said "I had my fill in college" and I was like yeah that makes sense. No reason to be weird about it

Maybe throw an Arnold Palmer in if you’re feeling spicy?

I've pretty much gone the same way, if I have a drink I almost always regret it, not because of anything crazy but alcohol just makes my body feel suboptimal.

Weed on the other hand...muah

I do sprite and orange juice. It's basically a virgin mimosa.

Tbf at 35 you’re far more likely to meet/know/understand folks that don’t drink. Going out on a limb and assuming OP is in their 20’s or something, but I could obviously be wrong.

I don’t always drink, and when I don’t my go to drinks are Diet Coke with lime or a Roy rogers. What I’m saying here is I like the cut of your jib.

... olive oil?

edit:

I was trying to go through my mind and find something that doesn't contain water and is still a drink.(?)

This opened up a small venn diagram throughout the day where I considered something "is food", "is a drink" and "is liquid". the three that satisfy only two are things like water, that's not food but is liquid and a drink, olive oil that's food and a liquid but (for some) not a drink, and things like applesauce, pudding, jello, etc... which is a drink and food but not really a liquid.

the only one that doesn't contain water was olive oil.

anyway, this was my most successful 3am comment, it's been fun everyone.
