Are there any other assumptions men make about a first date, not drinking alcohol? (Nothing immature like a Shirly Temple, ect.)

If a girl told me she was not into drinking i would not drink in front of her but will have a drink b4 hand. I explain the above to them concerning my stance on alcohol but don't care if they order something.
