What She Thinks When You’re Drunk
Getting hit on by slurring drunk guys is one of the lowlights of going out for women. There’s nothing wrong with having a drink or two to take the edge off when you’re out, but there’s a point at which is becomes a dealbreaker.
Having a drink and enjoying nightlife go hand-in-hand. But you have to place limits on yourself so as not to completely dash your chances with the ladies. When you’re intoxicated, you may think you’re bringing out your A-game, when you can’t even talk properly. You’re also less able to notice her signals. I’ve found drunken guys don’t notice that they’re not getting anywhere or are being met with signs of disinterest. They are even hard to get rid of after they’ve been told they don’t have a chance.
Plenty of women will turn their nose up when a visibly drunk man approaches, but some don’t mind chatting. However, even if she is quite attracted to you, she won’t want to go home with you for fear that you will pass out before anything can happen.
Being totally drunk, you probably know that you are not making the best impression on women that you approach. You don’t improve the situation by saying something like “I never normally drink this much”. In fact, it makes you look even messier and she might even worry that you are going to throw up on her. Even if you can’t even see straight, your drunk self has one vital fact to remember: do not admit you’ve had too much.
It only takes a few drinks to go from nicely buzzed, to falling-down drunk. While some may discourage drinking when you’re trying to pick up, if you can hold your liquor then there’s no harm in having a drink. It could even be a good thing- if you’re not drinking and she is, she might feel like she is being taken advantage of. But you need to make sure you stay on the coherent side of drunk so as to avoid looking pathetic.
Also keep in mind that if your mode of transport between the club to your house is a car, then you don’t want to drink enough that you’re forced to find another way. For women who dig convenience, having to find another way to your place can make her change her mind.
Drinking up to your eyeballs limits your choices when it comes to approaching women. You’re only going to get anywhere with women who are just as intoxicated as you, because they won’t notice your state as much. If you can act sober fairly well, then hitting on women who are mildly inebriated is a possibility, but a stone-cold sober girl will see right through the act. You’re going to have the most success with women who are at about the same level of intoxication as you.
