Boo App Taglines:

When selecting the 'do you drink?' tagline option, what do the tagline options mean to you? I drink one or two drinks a year max and I also sip a drink every now-and-again to try it. I don't think I classify as any of these taglines, as they all seem subjective. 'Never' is obvious. Never seems like my option, but isn't the truth. 'Frequently' seems like once a week/party type person. 'Socially' seems like it would also be also a bar person, but perhaps you might just never really drink at all, unless at an occassion (i.e.: weddings, birthdays). 'Sober' seems like it's a recovering person or it could be someone who doesn't ever drink.

That is an option, but I think it's not being open enough, especially on a limited window like this platform. /shrug

I see what you’re saying. However, if you put whatever is closest to the truth but not the truth, then your profile might not be recommended to certain potential matches due to your selection (which is untrue). So you could miss out on opportunities. For example, if you say you never drink, and someone who’s a good match for you is looking for someone who drinks at least a bit (because they drink and feel more comfortable with a partner who also drinks or is okay with drinking), then you may not show up as potential matches for each other. Whereas you might show up as a potential match for someone who’s looking for a teetotaler, and they will probably reject you anyway once they hear the truth from you at some point.

I tagged myself as never because I never have. It'd be somewhat awkward for me to come across someone's profile and see 'never' only to find out they do drink, even if it was occasionally. Finding out someone who labeled themselves as 'socially' who had a couple a year would make much more sense to me; it's the next option up that's not never.

I will probably use Socially for now, as this seems to make sense. Thank you, Josh.

Don't worry, be honest, but yeah I would understand when a man is trying to impress a woman it's a delicate subject...

This is true. I mean, I'm not necessarily trying to impress women, but more trying to be accurate. Drinking impairs one's thoughts (given), so I believe it's a defining factor in many other behavioral factors of one's personality. Accuracy is also important to me. Sigh.

Honestly I think the closest to what you described is socially, it just gives the impression to whoever reads it that you don't drink regularly. But I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just one thing though is that the sober option simply means someone doesn't ever drink, it doesn't mean they used to be an alcoholic. This one is probably the least subjective since the word sober has a clear definition unlike smth like frequently.

I guess the phrase, "I've been sober 3 years" isn't a correct usage of the word. I've never looked it up. Just people I've been around use that phrase.

They do use it correctly. Sober simply means that you're not under the effect of alcohol , if someone selects the sober option on boo it means they don't drink (the reason doesn't matter) but if someone uses it like you said its also correct and it's the same as them saying "I haven't drank for 3 years". I hope that explanation makes sense
