    I think that it is a great thing to have someone like him. Very few guys nowadays are not even drinking or does not get drunk on occasions. He can really serve as an inspiration and motivation. Also good to know that he is not a controlling person.

    I feel like you should respect him for what seems to be a straight edge lifestyle, but you also need to tell him that if you wanna kick back and have a drink sometime, he should be able to respect that. If he can't, then that sounds like he is really unreasonable.

    I think that you two should really just sit down and have a conversation about it. It seems like marijuana and other drugs are the only things that he is truly against, which is understandable, but drinking does not seem to bother him as much.

    No problem! If he's uncomfortable with regular beer, maybe the "tame" and sweet beverages like Bailey's and Sauza Tequila would make him more lax about it.

    We have talked about it. He knows my past and he knows what I'm about. I'm a mom, I work full time and handle myself pretty well. Hes a keeper, I don't hide anything and I let him know right up front that I drink. I would hate to waste time hiding who I am from someone I love.

    My girlfriend thinks like you for me as I never try these drugs or alcohol.
    Actually I totally hated these things .In my life there is no space for drugs. Drugs never gives us good health.

    Going from one extreme to another is not necessarily a bad thing. Case in point. You bought a Ken in mint condition; marvel at him while you still have the chance. The fact that the freedom of choice gives us the opportunity to select who we share our life with is a huge advantage. It's much different than family. You cannot choose your parents but you can definitely choose who your life partner will be. I congratulate you on hitting the jackpot there.
