I have always found that first dates come in a few varieties, depending on the alcohol thatâ€™s mixed in:
1. Awkward, stays pretty uncomfortable and uneventful, date ends in an awkward way.
2. Awkward, a few beers helps loosen things up and make it comfortable, date ends a little better.
3. Awkward, chugging mixed drinks makes things even more awkward, and date justâ€¦ ends.
Everyone has had their share of first date horror stories, and alcohol seems to be a big factor that affects the turnout. Although mixing some buzz into a first date can be a risk, the pressure of the night might require some booze:
