    Well the stone throwing would be nice, but the whole "no alcohol" thing is a deal breaker.

    From my experience, women seem to count a "drink" as anything that comes in one glass. A shot = a drink. A gigantic martini with 6 oz of liquor = a drink. Then they get hammered to all hell and sometimes cry "ROOFIE" since "omg I only had two drinks."

    I'm sure sometimes they actually do get roofied, but it's like 0.0001% of the time and the rest is just badly miscounting how much liquor they've actually had.

    She usually gets a glass of wine or beer when she goes out.

    If the bartender puts my next martini in front of me when I'm not looking it's still the same drink. Five hours of emptying martini glasses = one drink and then I tell everyone I musta been ROOFIED!

    My girlfriend doesn't drink much at all. If she does it is light stuff, she doesn't like hard liquor.

    Mrs. Piob was like this when I first met her. Only took me ten years or so to get her to the point a gin and tonic is something she likes.

    Actually I got her to like gin and ginger ale. When I drink out 99% of the time I drink dry gin martinis. She comments on how they smell like "pine sol".

    Bleh. I never could do martinis. Really, I can't do white liquor at all. I pretty much only drink Scotch or rye whiskey.

    If I *have* to drink white liquor, gin is OK, but I'll pretty much only drink it in a Negroni.

    I hate scotch. I love rye and bourbon, but scotch has this schmaltzy finish that is horrid.

    Yeah, I might have made up that word, but scotch has a horrid aftertaste. Irish whiskey has it to a lesser extent, but I find it deplorable.
