How important of a trait is it whether someone drinks or not?


I stopped drinking a year ago for both health and personal reasons, and for a while, I had put my status in my profile as a non-drinker.

Thats exactly how I am. & I love to enjoy wine dinners, wine tastings, etc. So ... if I were CHOOSING someone to meet in OLD & it siad they didnt drink, for WHATEVER reason, whether in recovery, or just b/c they didnt like it, I likely wouldnt be interested in that person b/c socially, we wouldnt be on the same page of what we like to do.


Now, if i met someone IRL who i hit it off with, & THEN found out they didnt drink, it would be a different story.


For the OP, if you dont drink b/c you are in recovery, Bless you & best of luck. If you dont drink b/c you just dont like it, etc, then you COULD put social drinker, if say you would take a sip of champagne at a toast, etc. but, if you truly NEVER have alcohol, then you need to put "dont drink" & then maybe in your profile, some how nonchalantly slip in something about the things you like to do socially, & then say "& although I dont enjoy alchohol, I have no qualms if you'd like to enjoy a drink once &

I totally agree with Chickpea. I am dating a man who rarely drinks and I rarely drink either. When we go to a dance club or party, he has as much fun sober as most people do who are drinking. He is a fabulous dancer and has a quick wit that is appreciated by all.

If an individual can't have a good time without alcohol, he/she may have a problem.

@Ig-ri, let me start off by appologizing first for what I am about to say as it may sound offensive to you.

Oh Dear God thats not what i meant! AT ALL. I specifically said, I believe, in my post, that if I ended up liking someone who didnt drink, that wouldnt be

To be honest, I never thought you where an alcoholic.
