I told my friend Ray that if he wants to have a second date with someone, he needs to make sure the first date is “dry.” This is because when Ray drinks, Ray is a jerk. Not just annoying kind of jerk, but a really obnoxious and inappropriate kind of jerk. While I don’t think he has a drinking problem, I am concerned that his best self does not get to shine through when he drinks.
Some of us just tolerate our alcohol better than others. I generally don’t go beyond a glass of wine or one cocktail on dates. I feel that I like to stay clear headed and focused on seeing if there is chemistry there. I don’t want to have “liquid courage” to enjoy a date. What do you think?
Should you drink on the first couple of dates? Do you think you need alcohol to make you feel at ease?
What is your general rule for alcohol and dating? To mix or not to mix?
