"Go get a drink" dates I was reading in another forum about this guy complaining about something that I have recently being realizing as well. This guy and I both don't drink. This guy was complaining about whenever he wants to go on a date with a girl, the girl invariably says that they should go get a drink or to a bar. He made some very funny observations such as wondering if dating is such an awkward concept that alcohol must be introduced for it to be bearable. I brought up the idea that girls do it because a drink is much easier to run away from than dinner or a movie if they don't like the guy. I wonder if most people realize that they're so dull that alcohol must be introduced in order to make them seem more interesting. So how in the world do people get by meeting new people if they aren't down with just going to a bar or partying? DISCUSS!
