Hinge Finds 75% Of Singles Prefer Sober Dates

Meeting up to grab a drink used to be a pretty common option for first dates, but it seems the times are changing. New research from Hinge reveals a majority of singles would rather skip the booze on the first date.

The dating app surveyed 3-thousand of its users last month and found:

  • 75% would prefer a sober date the first time they meet someone
  • More than half (55%) say they prefer not drinking on a first date because it allows them to have a clear head while getting to know someone.
  • Millennials are 50% more likely than younger generations to report they drank alcohol on a date when they would’ve preferred not to.
  • And two-thirds of those polled say it would be a dealbreaker if someone drank too much on a first date.

If you decide to stay sober on your next first date, but you’re not sure what to do that doesn’t involve alcohol, try one of these:

  • Go to a museum.
  • Have a picnic in the park.
  • Go to a mini-golf course.
  • See a movie and if you live near a drive-in, even better.
  • Go to a workshop or class you're both interested in.
  • See some live music.
  • Go to a baseball game.
  • Rent kayaks or a canoe and get out on the water.
