Getting Drunk on a First Date
I try to advise my dear friend and let her know that if she needs to have a drink, hey, there’s nothing wrong with that. And maybe she could trying “nursing” one drink for awhile (especially a martini). This way, she can solve her fidgeting issue and still feel slightly relaxed (instead of feeling like she might fall out of the chair).
The best advice I can give is not to drink at all, but I’m realistic and know that a drink can make that really awkward moment a little less awkward. I think men definitely want to feel relaxed and want us to feel relaxed. And maybe some of them do want us to get a little out of control because the idea of a make-out session on the first date sounds good to them. But seriously, my friend is a great girl and she’s looking for a great guy to spend some time with. I can only hope that she takes my advice and kicks her drunk dating habit!
Every date should be fun, but if you want to be taken seriously, you may want to avoid the tequila shots, the multiple martinis, and the potential face sucking these things can cause.
