ASKMEN - July 19 - Zoosk surveyed 9k of its members and analyzed 133k dating messages to figure out the relationship between alcohol and dating. It found that 72% of the daters on its site consume alcohol compared to 64.8% of the general adult U.S. population, indicating that singles really do drink more than everybody else. It could be due to how common going out for a drink is when you're dating someone. Nearly three in four daters said going out for a drink is a good dating idea. And according to 32% of non-drinkers, dating is tougher when you're sober.
