Okay so here's the thing.. Recently I have been dating more frequently with university being out for the summer and what not. It seems that with every date I go on, I somehow feel as if I have "let the girl down" in some way during the date. To further explain this... A.) I do not drink (never have, never will) B.) Do not smoke (never have, never will) C.) I don't lie about my age to anyone So when the lady tells me a story about how she "got plastered over the weekend", I pretty much turn off because that's just not my idea of a good time. Now I try not to show it but then that leads to them getting put off too for some reason. Ive asked a few of my friends about this and they say to get with any girl you pretty much have to lie just to "get with her". Is this really so? I mean im only 20 and when the subject of age comes up the ladies seem to be put off by my age with remarks like "oh but I thought you were older, say 24 or so." I mean if im dating someone who is 23 should I say im 25 just to "have a chance"? I don't want to think so here. It's kinda funny b/c I would think that girls would appreciate a guy that doesn't drink or gets plastered over the weekend but go fig.
