However material, cliché, or shallow this might sound, to be honest, one of the things that matter most to me about the guy I am dating is what he drinks. Because if you have to go out with him, you need good drinking company, right? I’m not saying he needs to be a bourbon or rum lover like me but he has to at least match the level of ABV going inside me!
So, on a first date, if we’re, say, at a sports bar and the guy orders a bottle of champagne for both of us, I would go “aww” at him not cringing to be romantic—despite the place. And if he orders a glass of martini for himself… we got a problem. I know, I know—each one to their own, but can you really blame me for judging him to be a teeny bit flashy for ordering a martini on a first date, out of all things on the menu? This is my own perception, and many would differ from it.
Based on most females’ take on the matter, and a few males bearing knowledge of bars and drinks—I have compiled a list that by and large tells you what your date will think of your choice of drink on a first date. For gags, let’s start with the one I, too, made a face on:
On the silver screen, it may scream sex appeal, but the cold reality is, it’s a little flinch-inducing. Like, we could enjoy that back at home with olives, but seriously, can you not try so hard to show highly of yourself? It’s embarrassing.
Um, no. we’re not at the beach. No, you’re not being a feminist by wavering that pink girly drink in my face. I’m not impressed by your sense of non-chauvinism. You don’t have a social clue, and you’re most definitely not funny.
Hey you, simple living! Liquor and a basic mixer gets you going? I like you already.
If she likes them rugged, she likes your whole beer and soccer idea. But, if she orders herself a cocktail, your beer might make her uncomfortable or show little or no sophistication.
Hell yeah, you want to drink with me. You’re confident about your manhood, and that’s sexy.
This ain’t your first rodeo—and you’re down and ready to party, which is a green signal for a girl that you’re leaving all those vodka-soda drinkers behind.
You’re an old-school hottie who doesn’t need 15 odd organic ingredients to show off your amazing cocktail knowledge. You’re confident and you like a well-constructed drink which screams “strong-willed”!
The true gentleman likes to savour his drink… full marks for that smooth move. The finer things in life drive you, and this is going to be a successful date night.
What’s your most “low-cal” drink
If you ask the waiter this question, brb, puking. You decided to be a fitness freak on the exact night that you got me out? You have managed to make me conscious about my own drink, and my entire life.
You enjoy your beer, not chug it to go for a bathroom break. You take out time to know your alcohol, and that’s really considerate. You’re a sweetheart.
