From: King of Inland I’m not saying that you should indulge in partying, but you need to be a bit more willing to look at folks whether or not they party. I’m a college student just like you, but I literally never went to a party until two months after I started school. Even then, I still don’t touch any alcohol since I’m not very fond of the ideas behind drinking. Just be more open in looking for girls, as there are actually a fair amount of college girls not looking for hookups, either.
One of the few female authors writing about straight edge in the U.S., Beth while they are dating some of the guys, and when they break up, the girls just stop.
Carla is nerdy, spunky, and has that sharp, geeky wit that gets the jokes no one in my life laughs at anymore. A perfect mix of charmingly cute and regal elegance. Then I mention something about smoking pot. I don’t remember what anecdote I shared that required I disclose that detail. All I can remember is feeling a tangible energy drop. A green light turns red. I recently got more religious. So my style tends to attract more straight-edge girls.
Girls who maybe never met anyone who has their life together and regularly consumes cannabis — or at least, the girls didn’t know that some of these together types also smoke weed. When I go on dates, those girls are often surprised to find out I smoke. Very surprised.
I don’t have to tell you that dating today is the most complicated it’s ever been. Anyone who owns a phone knows that truly connecting with someone—and seeing them consistently enough to build an actual, exclusive relationship gasp —is tougher than an overcooked steak. But that’s where dating rules come in: When you have guardrails in place to help you stay in your lane and protect you from less straightforward souls, the road to finding The One becomes much easier to navigate.
One straight guy I dated said, “It’s funny I’ve met you because I have been questioning my sexuality a bit recently”. I was like, “Woah, I’m going to.
While I enjoyed staring at and sometimes eventually hooking up with the tatted, dapper dudes behind the bars that my friends and I used to frequent, I remember not knowing how to approach the fact that some of them were actually sober themselves. In , I did a Sober December I know, one month early , and after realizing that my life improved sans-booze, I gradually started drinking less and less—until I was essentially sober.
A little over a year after saying bye to booze , I broke up with a long-term boyfriend and had to navigate dating again. No apologizing for not being down to split that bottle of wine, no worrying about unattractive drunk texts, and dating a guy who loved my sobriety was so much better than dating a guy who seemed to secretly wish that I would get drunk with him. Unfortunately, upon downloading the app, I immediately felt like I was using the extreme beta version of Loosid.
After getting past the initial hurdles, I matched with someone who looked like a pretty good fit for me. Shortly after, I got an Instagram DM request from the sober, vegetarian prince charming. After we got to messaging, I found out he was from Italy and had just moved to L. The lack of quality profiles may have simply been because the app was so janky that nobody cared to put in the effort. It was further proof that I can think I want someone because of their dating app resume and photos , but then be completely wrong when I actually interact with them in person.
None of us truly knows what we want until we get it and even then, we might still not understand.

When I was a young and impressionable UCLA student, I fell for a guy named Chuck who was in a straight-edge punk band and worked in a bookshop. He was handsome, he lived in a dirty house with some other boys in bands and best of all, I thought, he was straight-edge. Unfortunately, during the course of our relationship, I learned that not everything Chuck said was true. But because chuck was obsessed with straight-edge music, we listened to it all the time.
So, as I mentioned, Chuck was handsome. But he was also short. Before we get too ahead of ourselves, I really liked Chuck initially.

Throughout high school I was one of the few friends who always left the party sober. As someone who generally does not drink or smoke, I went on for years envisioning my future Prince Charming as my sober partner in crime. I imagined a relationship where there would always be someone who could drive not about to blow all my money on cabs , parties would be more fun with a coherent buddy and neither of us would need to hold the others hair back.
Aside from having my very own party buddy, it just seemed like the right idea to be with someone who shared sobriety with me. This was the romantic companionship I had always expected to be in. Flash forward to freshman year of college, where I found myself in a relationship with my first boyfriend. Well, technically not my first boyfriend—my first stoner boyfriend. Allow me to tell you.
