    Question: What if someone you really liked and felt close to as a friend got really drunk and told you they hated your guts or something like that? How would you react? How would you approach it after you'd all sobered up? These things do occasionally happen out of the blue.
    I'd want to follow up later, for sure. But I'd also consider the possibility that they are like me, though, and hate your guts at that moment and not necessarily any other. This would be particularly applicable if you'd had some kind of minor conflict or whatever that evening. I'd also consider the possibility that they just like saying random stupid words without necessarily meaning anything, since some people are like that.

    edit: I just noticed it sounds like I'm saying I hate your guts some moments.

    As long as it's only when you're drunk.

    Oh it varies hugely.
    When i used to drink, and it was alwayscopiously (note used to) i could get into this peculiar self destruct mind space where i would say the most awful, embarassing and rude things. This had a devastating affect on my personal life.
    I have always been a person on a natural high, add alcohol or drugs and you have a road crash.

    This sounds pretty silly to me. To me, it'd be awful if you ruled out a potentially amazing life relationship simply because you were both drunk when you met.

    I mean, it's one thing if you have to be drunk every time you see each other, but how you meet shouldn't really be an issue after a few sober dates...

    I think SilkRoad phrased it better but its essentially the same point I'm making as she made. I wouldnt want at some future point to be saying "And if we hadnt both been drunk..."

    Hmmm. So I guess I don't agree.
    (Sorry, I started out by thinking I did, lol!)

    Ugh. I forget that people sometimes lie and act like cowards like this after they've done something they wanted to do. That sort of cowardice disgusts me so much I almost can't believe it happens.

    I dunno, to me that's not really a big deal and I'd rather be saying that than "I really wish I'd talked to them, maybe we'd be together now..."

    I guess everyone is different, though. In the circles I run in, this happens a lot. It'll probably happen less as I get older, but I don't really see it as a huge deal now unless it's a signal for underlying problems , which can definitely be the case.

    Sigh. Yeah. Unfortunately, it does: People lie, to avoid feeling embarrassed or taking responsibility for their comments.

    I wonder what the correlates for drunken hook ups and happy marriages is.
