Being a Drunk Mess
This is one of my downfalls, I’ll admit. You get a little nervous maybe before you hang out, and so the simplest solution is to drink more. I’m sure most guys aren’t interested in hanging out with a girl who is going to be a wet blanket and doesn’t want to drink at all, but trying to prove to him that you can “go just as hard as he can” isn’t really something you should lead with. Passing out on the bar, falling down a flight of stairs, rambly drunk texts, crying in public, and throwing up cheez-its all over his couch is not really a good look on anyone. He doesn’t want to have to take care of you, and honestly, you’re embarrassing yourself. Not to mention, you’re embarrassing him if you don’t remember hooking up. That’s a pretty good way to make him feel like a rapist, which probably wasn’t on his list of things to do before graduating. I’m not saying don’t black out and have fun, if that’s your cup of Sweet Tea Vodka, then go for it, just don’t expect a boyfriend out of the deal.
