Liquid courage required to date?

There are a lot of “social crutches” people tend to lean on in dating these days. Some people seem to think that they need alcohol to help them feel at ease. I think this is partly why a bar can be a bad place to meet someone for the first time. You don’t know if you are getting a really good “sober” representation of their personality (Let’s not forget beer goggles).

To be honest, drinking doesn’t always give you liquid courage. It can actually change your personality…for the worse. It’s amazing to meet people who have gone through life not realizing that when they drink too much their behavior is awful.

What is your drinking policy for dating? Do you date drinkers?

Do you limit your alcohol intake when you are on a date?

Has anyone ever told you that you behave differently when you have had a couple of drinks?

@Raqi V ~ You never know until you ask. I believe in asking simply because the word “NO” doesn’t bother me!

@Superman ~ thank you because I’m a barrell full of fun. :lol:

we do get along well, but i think that’s a mother/son thing that doesn’t really happen with mother/daughters. lawd knows i almost did a backflip when my daddy gifted me a one-way ticket to nyc after graduation. mom really wanted me to stay but NOOOOO! :lol:

thing 2 truly could not understand why i said he has to get out eventually. i had to flat out tell him that no child of mine would be allowed “adult relations” under my roof. period. you grown = you gotta go!

I am surprised the party crasher Not so SexyCool, hasn’t tanked this this topic. As far as drinking on a Date, well know your limits, especially if you’re driving.

I knew the blog was slow today but I expected to long on and have two new pages of comments to read. LOL

Maybe that’s because my 45 minute nap felt like 2 hours.

Raqi V

LOL Maybe it had something to due with that foreign exchange that took place yesterday. Makes me want to go over there and translate the comments. LOL

I sent to your email.

@Raqi V ~ even BMW got in on the foreign exchange!!!! That girl is so worldly. :lol: :lol:

ok, looking around now, see Superman is chasing Leg, and shes pulle dout the peg leg…whats all this about a foreign exchange?

Celisea

Now LV, I don’t think SC ever talked about drinking…why’d you go there? I’m surprised at you. Was it because she said something to you in a foreign language yesterday that you didn’t like? I think I saw her responding to you when you posted in whatever language that was. I’m surprised at you….I’m usually in your corner…I like the underdog

Celisea

Okay, I promise I didn’t see Raqi’s comment about the foreign language exchange but I can attest that’s what I was thinking too

Wasn’t Varinia or somebody also chatting back and forth with LV?

Celisea

Oh, wait…I didn’t read LV’s comment right or shall I say I half read..really I did. He didn’t direct his comments to her on the topic, just made a not so nice comment.

Celisea, from the few comments I went over and translated I don’t see what has his panties in a bunch. That is unless I missed some comments.

She told him anybody can use Google translate and she told him as usual he added nothing of substance to the conversation.

Raqi – She told him anybody can use Google translate and she told him as usual he added nothing of substance to the conversation.

Ahhhh, I see why he’s a bit miffed with her…that’s funny though how you nicely worded it….LOL

Well one thing I can talk about is what we’re heading to Miami for another conference and I’m all booked and ready. Might not be the most interesting conversation piece but I thought it goes nicely with ARed wanting to go to Hawaii…I’m sure the weather in Miami will be nice. On top of that it’s free :)

Okay, what else can we talk about?
