Every now and then you will see a profile or meet a girl that says she does not drink at all.  While this may not be a big deal for some people, it can be awfully tough for those of us that are casual drinkers.

But regardless if you care whether or not you have a drinking partner, is this a red flag?

I personally have always been creeped out and wary of people that say they NEVER drink.  Unless they have an addiction problem, I see this as a strange behavior.  And to tell the truth, I am not really sure why.

Perhaps I view this person subconsciously as being socially inept.  Or perhaps I view them as boring without ever getting to know them.

Are these judgements fair?  Probably not.  Call me stubborn, but they will never change.  Am I the only one who feels this way or is not drinking at all a red flag that something is off?!

  1. I think this is the most rediculous blog you could ever post.
    I would rather be with somebody who doesn’t drink than somebody who needs a beer or wine with dinner every night just to relax.
    I think it is stranger behavior to have to drink to have fun or relax.
    There is someone for everyone and obviously you need to be with a drinker, the addictive personality you seem to be trying to stay away from.

  2. Having left my alcolic partner, I’d casually ask if “NEVER” drinks is accurate. She could just be playing nice girl. Maybe a compromise, if needed. But enjoy the dating. Now you KNOW via red flags, fanfare, and fireworks display if there’s an alcoholism

    I’d give anything to rekindle with my sober, vivacious, ex partner.
