Everyone has allowed their liquid courage to get the best of them at some point, but texting drunken messages to that special someone shouldn’t become a habit! Communicating while you’re sober is the best way to chat – it keeps the conversation in control (and you from looking like a fool). So, next time you pick up a cocktail, do the right thing and put the phone DOWN.
Sloppy isn’t Cute
No use blaming your misspelled words and nonsensical sentences on autocorrect, everyone else is going to blame it on the ah-ah-ah-alcohol. Sorry. And let’s just be real about it once and for all, those sloppy texts? They’re never cute. Especially when they’re sent to someone you just started seeing!
Hit Send and it’s GONE
Who wants to wake up with serious regret on the same morning they’re dealing with a hangover? Once you send your silly drunken messages off to your recipient they’re gone forever. And you can’t ever get them back.
Can’t You Say it Sober?
If you can’t tell someone you love them (or even like them) to their face when you’re sober then saying it while you’re tipsy over text looks super weak. Speak your mind and say how you feel, but make sure you do it without the alcohol so that it actually feels sincere.
Drunk Booty Call = No Score
Women want to feel special and a drunken booty call message is the complete opposite. You’ll lose her if you send this one out – don’t do it!
It’s Time to Grow Up
Drunk texting may have been acceptable during university and college nights out. We can even let it slide as something stupid we all did in our early twenties. But if you’re over the age of 25, it’s time to leave this embarrassing move behind you and grow up!
