do you wanna drink?

There's a saying in Tagalog that goes, "pag may alak, may balak." It roughly translates into, "when there's liquor involved, there's a plan being hatched." It doesn't sound as effective as it does in Tagalog but the gist of it is that when a guy invites you out to drink, most likely, he wants to get you to bed and will imbibe you with drinks to get you to loosen up.

After all, that is what alcohol does right? It makes you forget all your inhibitions and lets you do things you normally wouldn't because you know you shouldn't.

What happens then when someone asks you out for the first time but they wanna drink? Do you say yes? Do you just outright say no? Here's what I think of guys who do this and why girls should be wary of the "do you wanna drink first date."

1. Its the first time that you will be going out and you're supposed to be getting to know each other. Do you really think that getting to know someone under the influence of alcohol is the best way to go about it? I don't think so.

2. No decent guy or any guy raised well would invite a woman out to drink unless he just wants to get laid that night. We all know where drinks normally lead to. Remember, never sleep on the first date unless you actually hit it off in the way that a grand meteor hits the Earth and shatters it into a million pieces. If you do sleep with the guy on the first date, be ready to never hear from him again unless its a booty call. You're worth more than a booty call.

So to the men out there ... if you are just out to get laid, then go ahead and keep asking women to go drinking on a first date. The ones who say yes are most likely that kind of girl anyway and you deserve each other along with all the STD's of the world. To the women, if you are not that kind of guy and a guy asks you, you already know the answer to this.

Be smart. You are not a canteen open to anyone who wants to dine. :)

  1. Let's just say that it really is a common tactic ng guys when they wanna get laid, their line for a first date would be like... "Wanna grab a few bottles of beer tonight?" But I'm glad my boyfriend isn't like that at all even though we did have beer on our first date. Initial plan was to just have dinner but then we kind of want to hangout more so we ended up doing karaoke with a few bottles of beer, then coffee, then home. I guess he is one of the "exceptions" so I'm just glad. But a reminder, that's why they are called the "exceptions" because there ain't many left... So better be safe than sorry for all the girls out there!

    Thanks for the advice. This is something I would probably hear from my mom and it's just nice that you blog about it... Kind of like every teenage blogger's online mommy :D
