When it comes to dating, it can be extremely tough. It isn't what it used to be, and meeting people is harder than ever before in person. Nowadays, most single people are using dating apps or sites, instead of meeting someone the old-fashioned way. While meeting someone to go on a date with can be stressful, anxious, and hard work, once you have a date, there is pressure on what to do and how to handle things. There is a new dating trend that has been happening across Idaho, especially with younger generations, and it seems to be highly effective.

Going on a date can be as much, if not more stressful than finding a person to date. Where do you go? What do you do? The younger generation has decided to start doing a new trend, which is called dry dating. Many often like to go out for drinks to help relax on a date or to have a good time, but millennials and Gen Zers have decided to start dating without any alcohol. In a recent survey from datingnews.com, 54 percent of millennials and Gen Zers said they prefer no alcohol on their dates, with 81 percent saying they have gone on a dry date in 2024 already. Not only does this allow them to remember and enjoy their dates, but it also saves money, with an average of $88 per month being saved. As surprising as it is, 65 percent surveyed said they prefer dry dating.
