Let me tell you a thing or two about drunk dials - they are bullshit.
According to the Cosmo advisor; men drunk dial because its the only time that they have the guts to tell us women whatever it is that they need to say.
I thought it was all about Sex?
Nobody has ever drunk dialed me telling me anything other than something that they think will lead them into my bed.
And never have I, drunk dialed someone and told them anything other than BS that will lead me into their bed.
It's called a drunk dial for a reason.
You're drunk. It's 2 AM. Maybe there was nothing great at the bar, so you are ready to settle on that person who you know will answer and may have nothing better to do, than you.
It's the truth, no?
What happens when its a text message? And its from a far?
(and let it be known, I in fact was drunk, missing him, and a wee bit trippin')
Girl is telling the whole story of Boy to her friend. Her Hopeless Romantic Friend.
Friend tells Girl to text Boy how she feels.
Girl is like no way jose.
"Do it. Do it. Do it" The Friend says - then Girl heard her own advise coming from her Friend and decided to practice what she preaches to others.
Girl texts boy, 9:45pm (and we can get into a discussion about why Girl was drunk that early in the evening in another post)
"This is crazy. I can't stop thinking about you"
HOURS go by. Seriously, HOURS.
Twelve to be exact.
And believe you me, you didn't want to bring this up with Girl in any of those 12 hours.
Boy texts Girl back
"Not sure what to say to that"
Friend rushes to Girl and reads the text -
"Ooh. This can go one of two ways. 1. He is freaked out. 2. He is speechless/flattered and possibly feels the same way and thats what he means"
Girl is going with option 1.
Friend rationalizes that if Boy was really freaked out would he really reply to my text message? Why wouldn't he just ignore it and me inevitably. Friend's live in Boyfriend agrees. We had to weigh in a man's opinion.
Friend's Boyfriend argues that ignorance says a lot more than replying, if you think the person is crazy and you want to get rid of them.
Girl never one to listen to just two opinions decides for someone else's advice.
Her Best Friend.
That one, thought the whole situation comical. (which it kinda of is - because honestly I would NEVER do anything like that ever)
Best Friend's advice was to send another text apologizing and tossing it aside as a drunk moment.
Girl texts Boy
"Oops. I am so humiliated. Drunk dinner last night. I think it was meant to be more sexual in tone and not so much stalkerish as it reads."
Will that work?
I don't know how I have a crush on someone and suddenly I am doing dumb things like this...how in the World?
**FYI, it's been 7 hours since that last text and still no reply. And if any man reading this would like to put his two cents in on this, I'd love to hear it.
