First date mistake: Booze

If you plan on going out on a date this weekend or attending a party, perhaps you should consider having a “dry” weekend. Some people handle their alcohol with no problem. They know their limitations, they know what to steer clear of and what is safe. Unfortunately, some people are oblivious to their tolerance level and they pick the wrong time to get the hard lesson: on a first date.

I have been out with someone who got sloppy drunk and as fine as he was to look at, after the 4th drink he got really unattractive. He was the type to become obnoxious and loud when he had a couple of drinks in him. Although it was eye opening, I wonder if it was better to learn this sooner or later?

When you go out with friends, do you have a couple of drinks socially? Do you avoid drinking on dates?

Have you ever been on a date with someone who had too much to drink and their personality changed for the worse?

P.S. What are your plans for the weekend? Whatever you do, be safe!

@Sassy ~ The Pink Panty will have you dropping your own panties…man that drink will sneak up on you and BAM…..

Did you know that drinking drinks through a straw will get you higher quicker than sipping them.

If she drinks lady drinks,she can’t be a habitual fish,otherwise she will just be a pass time.

I took more gin and juice one time when out with a fling and yea,it wasnt cool.

Hmmmm…Pink Panty + Johnny’s Hideaway = ???

Or maybe they should buy me drinks so my usually high moral standards would relax some (I just hate it when a lady takes advantage of me when I have the highest of intentions) ;-)

SCool – No doubt you will look hot in your wedding dress, but make sure you leave yourself some “wiggle room”, just in case you gain a bit back between the dress ordering/fitting and the wedding.

You’re so disciplined, though, who am I talking to? :)

Good advice, Diva! My general policy is a two-drink max on a date, or any time I’m out socially. Exceeding that makes me vulnerable not only to someone else’s misbehavior, but my own as well. I like to have my wits about me, so I can see trouble coming before it gets right in my face! Also, being with an intoxicated man is just no fun. It lessens his ability to do anything well, and it just makes it that much harder to respect him. A real man knows how to pace himself.

Do I ever pound back a few? Sure, it happens! But only when I’m home and/or in safe company. (And then only the good stuff.)

Gracie – the two drink max is pretty much a rule for me at all times as well. My low tolerance makes two drinks all I need to get to the perfect level of relaxed.

Hey Celisea – it’s all good, I got so busy I couldn’t get back on here and chat with all of you.

On topic – Every man/woman has to know their limitations whether its drinking or anything else. Simplre right … I enjoy having a cocktail or two (or 3), but getting d r u n k on a date is not cool at all …

Watch the Throne …

This weekend, i don’t plan to do much of anything other than relax and catch up on some sleep from last weekend. I may catch a scary movie and try to dig into some crab legs but that’ll be the extent of it….oh, and can’t forget the booze ;-)

@SlimNu ~ have you heard that Club Echelon has Crab Legs Fridays starting today I believe. Crab legs are $5 with $5 drinks.

Leggs – I heard that was the spot to go to on Friday’s because they hook it up for you. However, I didn’t know they had $5 crab legs. Sounds better than 20+ you’d spend anywhere else. I love Spondivits but two people eating there will not dip without dropping a hunned on the tab smh

I’ve heard the straw thing too. I don’t get out much these days but when I do go – if I’m out for dancing/partying I drink shots. who has the time to be posted up with a drink? we just discussed leaving drinks and I just figure it’s easier to knock back the shot and hit the dance floor. if I’m out but it’s a chill out, sit and talk type thing I’ll do mixed drinks.

$5 crab legs, sounds good, but something like that you always get the bottom of the barrel

generally, for me, summer is for light liquor and winter is for dark. so my summer shot is usually tequila and my winter shot is usually jack daniels. I’ll mix it up but those are my basics. I recently bought amaretto because I love to put it in hot chocolate and hot chocolate weather is just about here.

I only recently discovered that my folks don’t really fool with jack. had a party at home once and realized folks shied away from the jack. no biggie. went to dc this past summer for the capital jazz fest with a large group. we spent a few hundred on liquor for the weekend. I got a bottle of jack. at the end of the weekend, everything was gone but the jack daniels.
