Don’t Drink and Date
Dating can be an awkward, strange, and sometimes terrifying experience at any age. Oftentimes, people turn to alcohol before a date to help them relieve the anticipation and take the edge off. In today’s society, the idea of going on a date with someone almost always includes “dinner and drinks”, “drinks and a movie”, or just flat out “drinks”. Why do so many people feel the need to incorporate alcohol into a new dating experience? Why are people so afraid of dating sober? Detox Boca can help you get sober, stay sober, and understand why you should never drink and date.
You will have a genuine experience. You will be yourself and they will be themselves. This is by far the greatest argument for dating sober. Sure, catching a buzz can ease the tension a little bit, but the more you drink on a date, the less you are really being yourself and the less you are guided by your inhibitions. Drinking and dating lessens the overall, genuine experience of getting to know someone and them getting to know you. After the date, you might not even remember if you really liked them or how you felt about it, since being impaired causes you to disregard natural inhibitions about people. It’s refreshing to connect with someone, to feel an attraction and a mutual liking for them, on a totally sober level. No more wondering how the date went.
Learn now what you would otherwise learn down the road. Once you have gotten past the first few sober dates, the inevitable time comes to get to know each other on another level. By dating sober, you can reach this level early on, rather than down the road after a few drunken dates.
Love connections can be ruined or cut short due to drinking behaviors. A new dating experience gives you the opportunity to put your best foot forward and show someone how great you can be. Acting in a way that is inconsistent with your normal behavior or feelings can show someone a side of you that neither of you are very comfortable with.
When it comes to deciding who you will be spending your precious time with, it is okay to be picky and take it seriously. Detox Boca, an outpatient facility in Boca Raton, Florida, can help get you started on the path to building quality relationships. Have a genuine dating experience and don’t drink and date!
