You’ve trusted your gut and your sober self, and chosen to go home with the best date ever – yourself.
Being honest and upfront about your (non-) drinking means that you’ll also weed out all the people who just cannot deal with an alcohol-free evening.

It is OK to care about a person, but not want a romantic relationship – ?!! I am where I am for a very good reason and the reason will soon become clear.

The idea of going out on a date without the comforting blanket of alcohol to boost your confidence can seem intimidating. But we want to show that you can go out there sober(er) with confidence.
