Last weekend, my long-distance boyfriend came to visit me. Since it was Labor Day Weekend, my sister and I thew a party. My boyfriend drank too much too soon, and promptly fell asleep just a few hours into the party.
Maybe I should be upset about this. But actually, I really like my boyfriend when he's drunk.
Perhaps that's a weird thing to say. Obviously I don't like him dangerously drunk, and I would be worried if he started throwing up or trying to drive. But generally, I like him drunk. Why? Because he always tells me really sweet things when he's drunk.
Now, he tells me really sweet things when he's sober, too. But he's especially nice when he's drunk and tells me how awesome I am. Obviously, I feel the same way about him, although he doesn't get to hear it as often because I can take more alcohol than he can. And I'm not dating him to hear about how great I am. Still, it's a lovely perk.
Apparently, I'm also not the only one who feels this way, and he's not the only boyfriend who does it. When I told my friend about that night, she responded that her ex used to act the exact same way.
That said, people have an extremely wide range of reactions to alcohol. So I'm sure some people hate when their S/O gets drunk, because he/she might get flirty or even violent.
What's your S/O like when he or she is drunk?
