Drink, Smoke and Date: How to Find Singles Who Imbibe

28 October 2009 4 Comments by Rachel Wilkerson

When searching for a partner, most people want someone with similar interests. When you fill out your online dating profile, you might include your love of running, of 16th century British history, of Dalmatians. You probably wouldn’t list “getting high” or “boozing.” But if there’s someone for everyone, there’s someone for the stoner singles. Why not choose an online dating site to suit your vices?

If you’re a wine connoisseur, there are many sites for those looking to share a glass of vino (and maybe more!). Wine Lovers Passions is just one of the sites where you can find someone who likes to get corked.

Some of us, though, aren’t so classy. If you just love a cocktail or six(teen), and want your date to know up front, check out iMatchUp’s section for drinkers. There will be no, “Oh, I’m not drinking,” when the waiter offers the wine list on the first date. Finding someone who shares this interest will make for a a fun time. (If only you could remember it the next day!)

If cigs are your sin, there’s an online dating site for that as well. Smoker Date Link screams from the homepage, “Tired of browsing online dating sites only to find out that your perfect match is a non-smoker?” All you non-smokers, with your fresh breath, clean teeth, and judgments … STAY OUT!! Dating for Smokers and Smoking Passions are two other sites devoted to helping you find someone smoking hot.

If you love to smoke, but prefer to “go green,” then check out 420Dating. “Why Toke Alone?” asks a sexy girl, covered in little green buds. For more personal ads, as well as relationship advice, try Singles420. You’ll find that perfect someone whose eyes light up when you do.

If you don’t drink – at the recommendation of your family, friends, and local law enforcement – it can be uncomfortable to tell a new love interest that. “Want to meet for a drink?” “Um, can’t sorry, I have these steps I have to follow…” Most recovery programs suggest waiting a year before entering a new relationship, but when you’re ready to look for love again, there’s Sober and Single, 12StepMatch, and SoberKiss to help you find someone who understands why you won’t be having wine with dinner.

If you’re going to look for love on the internet, you might as well be specific. Don’t waste time with people who may not share your more obscure interests. Instead of feeling awkward when a site asks you how much you smoke or drink, hit up a the site where you can be open about your habits – and find someone who knows that going in, and likes you regardless.

    Sweet blog! Just a small detail though – it loads at a snail’s pace for me. While I’m not 100% definite about this, it might be the host. I use Fasthosts, and they’re pretty fast for me, you should give them a try. I’m in Ireland if that means anything. Cheers.
