4 Reasons Why He Only Texts You When He’s Drunk

He’s good looking, he’s charming, he’s smart, but there’s just one problem. He barely ever reveals his feelings TO you, or his feelings ABOUT you, and when he does it’s on his way home from the bar after one (or two or three) too many drinks. He’s the guy who only seems to text you when he is drunk, and you’re the girl who may or may not be guilty of not only texting back, but humoring him a bit and playing along. You may want to think twice before adding fuel to his boozed up fire because he is most likely drunk texting you for these various reasons.

Boozy call = booty call

When you are woken up by his drunk call or text at 3 a.m., it is more than just a drunk dial, it could very well be a booty call. We all have been guilty of giving the booty call at least once in our lives, and it’s completely fine if you really just want some action for one night. But approach with caution! If you’re head or heart is involved in any way, you should not be answering or giving booty calls. Booty calls are for booties! Not for feelings. So if the guy you want a relationship with is only calling or texting you on his way home from the bar, you’re better off just not responding. Chances are he has another girl he can call, and he most likely will when you don’t answer.

Running scared

When you can only get a meaningful word out of him when he is liquored up, it could mean he is just too scared to reveal those meaningful words to you when he is sober. Revealing your feelings for someone is sort of like playing fetch with a dog. I don’t mean to compare people to dogs, but metaphorically speaking, you throw the ball and the dog will either fetch and return it, or they will just run. It’s the same with your significant other. You can tell them how you feel, and they will either feel the same way in return, or your feelings will totally freak them out and cause them to run scared. If he has revealed certain feelings to you when he was drunk, there may be a good chance that he is feeling those things when he’s sober too. So throw the dog a bone, and tell him how you feel when both of you are sober. Maybe he will finally admit to you and himself how he truly feels.

Immature and stupid

Unlike the scared drunk dialer, this guy has no idea what he is texting or saying to you, and the only thing going through his head when he wakes up in the morning is a migraine. He most likely doesn’t remember how he even got home last night, let alone who he called or texted on the way. This type of guy is quite possibly the most dangerous, because the next day he could either be painfully embarrassed and pretend like he doesn’t remember anything, or he could truly…not remember anything. Fortunately in this new age of technology, our smart phones don’t lie when it comes to who calls or texts you and when. He is obviously going to see who he called the next morning, and if he doesn’t acknowledge it, he is not worth your time. If he has the balls to call you at 3 a.m. he should have them when he wakes up the next morning to apologize or at least own up to it.

Alcoholic

Maybe this guy only calls or text you when he is drunk because he is ALWAYS drunk. Alcoholism is no joke, and while he may not be an alcoholic, he might have a drinking problem that requires him to reevaluate his boozy ways. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
