Alcohol makes us do all kinds of things we wouldn't normally consider. It makes us believe we can win a fight with a man three times our size, and it makes us devour disgusting donner kebabs dripping with fat. It also makes us text you, sometimes with something sweet, often with something surprising, and usually with something misspelt and largely incomprehensible. The problem is that while there are occasions when a bit of Dutch courage can encourage us to share our true feelings with you, there are also times when we find ourselves writing things in a drunken text that aren't even close to how we actually feel.
One time I woke up after a night out to find a text in my inbox reading 'I love you too!! Needless to say, when I had to tell her that I neither remembered, nor meant, the text that had prompted her reply, it did not go down well at all.
We text when we're drunk because alcohol opens us up, for better or for worse. Sometimes it lets us express ourselves in a way we wouldn't normally be able to and you can get a pleasant surprise, but there are occasions where booze makes us say things that couldn't be further from the truth.
The problem you have is working out which is which.

Getting drunk will strip away many of our inhibitions. We will do things that we normally wouldn't do and this includes texting women things that we normally wouldn't say.
Being drunk also changes the way we look at things and our decision making process can sometimes take a turn for the worse. I would say that there is no reason to think that he is as in to you as you might think.
In fact, depending on how drunk you get, some people won't remember anything from the night before. There is no hard-set logic that explains why anybody texts drunk and when you text someone with things that are of a more intimate nature, there's no reason to think it's because they think of you anymore than the person they are texting.
Were you drunk when you typed this? I would select this as best answer! Take no notice of drunk texts they are just ramblings of the drunken mind, they mean very little. I've been receiving drunk texts from a guy practically every weekend sometimes all weekend going for nearly 4 years now.

I was out with my girlfriends in the midst of a bad breakup and I had a lot more to drink than I care to admit.
I stumbled out of the taxi and into my house, and it was at that moment I thought it would be a good idea to tell my ex exactly what I was feeling. At the time, of course, sitting in my kitchen listening to Adele, I thought it was the best idea ever. We barely ever spoke again.
You have either just initiated the beginning of something beautiful or just made a friendship really awkward. Something in your mind triggers this one. It could be something that this person did months ago and you just remembered or relived it, or it could be something you have completely fabricated and overanalyzed in your drunken head. You wake up the next day and reread the text, realize the person has done nothing wrong and instantly send another text, apologizing profusely.
Now this one is hard to take back, or to blame on anything or anyone else. I mean, if you love someone, why not say so? The problem is most of us prefer to be in a romantic, magical moment the first time we say this to a person — not through squinted eyes, typos and poor grammar.
The reality of this situation usually involves falling into a bedroom, being unable to take off your own shoes and passing out fully clothed, on the bed, face-to-palm in your pillow.

We were together for a super long time, and I want to know if she's seeing anybody else, I'll text her until I get that information out of her. It's easier to call up an ex than to lay down the groundwork on someone new. Plus, my ex and I had already established what we like with each other, so the sex rarely disappoints.
We both had agreed that ending the relationship was the best thing for both of us, but that doesn't mean that I don't still smile when I think about the way her lips curl when she smiles or that unique way she moves her hair from her face. I was bombed when I texted her at 3 a.

Follow Thought Catalog.Having a limited amount of time there, we did not want things to hang up anywhere along the way so we appreciated that all the accommodations were worked out, the rental car was worked out.
It was nice to just hand over a voucher and have things taken care of.He Drunk-Texted You
We were pleased with the way it all worked out. We got good suggestions from our travel consultant. It was great to have the map highlighted with the things that were important to us and the accommodations for each night. Nordic Visitor was extremely professional and thorough in preparing us for our 14-day, self guided tour.
They were very accommodating and responsive to our pre trip questions. We couldn't have been more pleased with their excellent, expert services. I highly endorse and recommend Nordic Visitor. The tour and accommodations were very good from start to finish. We were met with a very friendly driver to the hotel on the first day and we were checked in early for our hotel without any issues.
Although all three of us were very tired, we went around Rekjavik the day we got there and everything was within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the city, felt safe and enjoyed shops. Our first day on the road was also very pleasant, the rental car had ample room and we were out of Rekjavik in 30 minutes driving the Icelandic countryside.
The prepared intinerary and locations suggested to visit were also very good, although we took upon ourselves to visit many many places in between to ensure we made the most of our time.
The rest of the 6 days we traveled were met with many awe inspiring scenery and none of could believe how gorgeous Iceland really was. On the way back to the Rekjavik, we were met with a friendly hotel staff and helped us get our rental car back to the rental company without any issues. Even the taxi driver was very friendly and conversational. Everyone, and I mean everyone, everywhere, were simply delightful.
All were helpful, competent and professional. Larus put together the perfect itinerary, including different kinds of hotels (modern, rustic, farm, historic). This was my first trip to Iceland and I got a very broad introduction to this beautiful country. I received a good amount of information from Nordic Visitor in advance of my trip, so I was well prepared. I felt very safe and comfortable with no worries during the adventure.
All of the vouchers and activities worked flawlessly. I talked to visitors who used other tour companies and they often had missed connections and invalid vouchers, so I am very grateful that Nordic Visitor is such a high quality company - I shared the contact info for Nordic Visitor and Larus, so my friends will have a better experience on their next tour. Thanks very much to Larus and everyone at Nordic Visitor.
You made this adventure fun, easy, and unforgettable!. I would highly recommend Nordic Visitor to any potential clients. They are an extremely professional company with lots of experience that means your holiday will run smoothly.
Every detail was thought through, and when I had queries, Hafdis was able to answer them or sort them out quickly. My children and I loved this holiday - we all agreed it was the best we have had, and I want to thank Nordic Visitor for making this possible.
When I was researching the holiday, I looked at a number of different options with a number of different Travel Agents, but I am so glad I chose Nordic Visitor. I will very much look forward to my next holiday with them.
This is the first time I booked a trip solely based on internet research and not based on a referral from a friend or other trusted source. I plan to leave a glowing review on Trip Advisor.
