The problem with being sober is so many of us think that when we aren't drinking, we can't have any fun."Oh, I'm not going to wear my sequin top. " we'll say, tossing our beloved glittery shirt to the bottom of the closet. Put on the outfit that makes you feel like you're the hottest shit in the stratosphere.You'll discover there's a natural high that comes with dressing to the nines.
But no one gets irritated with you if you simply say, "I'm on antibiotics. "So tell your date you're getting over something (I don't know, the flu?
) and you don't want to risk the antibiotics not working. Chances are, if you don't make a big scene about not drinking, neither will they.

Two years ago, alcohol having wrecked havoc on my health through migraines, anxiety, and the occasional total melt down, I chose to go booze free. And as a 29-year-old single woman in Texas, the constant go to when I’m asked out is, “Do you want to grab a drink?
” Whether you want to date a fellow non-drinker or don’t mind dating someone who drinks, make a clear decision. Go on some dates and see where you fall on the spectrum.
