    So I've been chatting online to a girl for a little while, and I asked her out. She said yes, and suggested a meet in a pub for a drink and chat.

    The "problem" is if I drive to wherever we meet, I can't (won't) drink more than half a pint, and I'll be on soft drinks for the rest of the night. My question is really am I likely to put her off me by not drinking? I know I could get a taxi there etc, I just don't want to. Much rather take my car, and I'm not a big drinker anyway. Could do with some advice! Have I overlooked an obvious solution?

    You've overlooked the obvious fact that it might be a 45 year old man..

    You've overlooked the obvious, use this as an evil way to get her to a hotel.

    Let the negative rep roll..

    I always think drinking on a first date is a big no no, you might make a massive fool of yourself and walking to the toilet every 10 mins isn't ideal, especially seeing as your date might run away when you go

    Drive, if the situation should require you to drink, you drink and leave your car there..

    I don't think she'll be put off by you not drinking. Just have half a pint, you'll come across as being responsible if you stop drinking after that anyway, which is a good thing.
    As long as she doesn't get the idea that you never drink more than half a pint, lol.

    Either don't drink and face whatever problems it may bring.

    Or, when you go the bar order yourself a coke and say to her there's vodka in it :teehee: tee hee. So cunning it just may work :sexface:



    Edit....

    Oh my, we have a problem.
    She will thing your drink driving :shock:



    Ponders for a short while...



    Ahh. Problem solved.... Car sex :smug:

    It probably won't be a problem unless she has it into her head that she sees the date as an opportunity to get pissed which for a first one is a bad idea.

    Relax man. It'll probably be a good thing that you won't get pissed and make a fool of yourself.

    :lolwut:Haha well as someone already stated, the abvious you overlooked was to MAKE SURE this girl aint really a old dude who might hurt you. So get her on webcam to make sure its a girl etc. and take your car, dont get drunk, and keep yourself safe, take your mobile phone (dont forget that), be nice and try to ahve fun!!

    hope i didnt sound like your mum

    At first I had read "So I've been chatting online to a little girl for a while"...

    Anyway - I would say drinking on the first date is an absolute no no, so nothing to worry about. ^^
