Dating a straight edge guy
Many people are straightedge without realising it - they don't do it to be righteous or follow a trend, they just are.
Scenario of a person who is genuinely straight edge: Guy: Hey, you want a beer? The real straightedge people will be the ones who are still sticking it out and staying clean in 20 years time, and who disagree with hardline people.As it is a lifestyle and not a set of rules, many people have their own form of it e.g.some straightedgers are vegan/vegatarian, don't drink coffee or refuse medicinal drugs; these are not principles every straightedge person follows though. Although the idea of refraining from casual sex, drugs and alcohol is one seen in many religions, you don't have to be religious to be s Xe.Straight edge sentiments can also be found in the song "Keep it Clean" by English punk band The Vibrators, and the 1970s Modern Lovers song "I'm Straight" (which rejected drug use).By the 1980s, bands on the West Coast, such as America's Hardcore, Stalag 13, Justice League, and Uniform Choice, were gaining popularity.
