Straight Edge Dating

How do I put this? Can I be picky in dating when it comes to living a straight edge life style?

In other words, I'm in a tough spot and could really use some advice. I'm in a relationship and I have been for about 2 years. I'm happy, to an extent. The girl I'm with supports the straight edge life style I've chosen and only drinks on special occasions herself. But my problem is, do I have to settle for this? There are other things that I do not like, but the straight edge support is a value I rarely see in people, and I'm wondering, if I break up with her, will I find someone else as understanding to my lifestyle AND still tolerable in the other aspects of a relationship.

What should I do?

PS I also really don't want to have to deal with her family anymore, they are extremely annoying and snobbish.

I kind of understand what you're feeling. My boyfriend has a couple drinks now and then and smokes weed on occasion. I understand it's not the most comforting thing for an edger to be with, but to each their own I guess. My boyfriend has come out of a lot worse and he's a pretty awesome dude now. As long as she loves you and isn't abusive and does not take you for granted, that's great! Her family is a different story, idk what to tell ya there bro.
