Seniors 32% More Likely to “Booze It Up” on First Dates

DatingAdvice.com has published an exclusive study detailing the dating habits and sexual activity of the U.S. population.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Aug. 6, 2014 - PRLog -- They call it liquid courage for a reason – alcohol helps us get over our inhibitions and let loose. This makes it the perfect first date beverage, right?

For DatingAdvice.com’s most recent study, we surveyed more than 1,000 Americans to find out who drinks on the first date and who prefers to go it sober. This is what we found.

Seniors aged 54 to 64 are a whopping 32 percent more likely to indulge in a first date drink than those aged 18 to 24. The average legal drinking age is a factor here, but there’s more to it than that.

Our senior dating expert, April Braswell, said midlifers are more likely than younger folks to spend a first date at a fancier establishment, such as a nice restaurant or wine bar. In these contexts, it would seem odd not to “booze it up” a bit.

As well, midlife singles “focus on intriguing conversation on a first date,” which lends itself to having a nice glass of wine or a cold beer.

With years of interesting life stories to share with their date, baby boomers do not rely on shared activities for dates the same way millennials do. They can simply enjoy the company and conversation, as well as a nice drink.
