Our mobiles should have built in, “Don’t use your phone you are wasted,” sensors which shuts them down as soon as our fumbling fingers and vodka breath start sending seriously misspelled texts and leaving slurry voicemails.
You know the drill… you start the evening promising you won’t make any contact with your ex, or the new man on the block. After a couple of beverages your inhibitions start to evaporate, the phone is out of the bag checking for any contact on his end. Nothing. A quick scroll down your contact list to his name… shall I?
You decide no, sod him, the evening rolls on, more drinks are had, friends are starting to mingle with some guys but you are completely distracted with the man already on your mind.
You’ll find yourself in the loos squinting at your phone. The thoughts and feelings that have been playing on your mind recently want to pour out, but whether these are declaring love or heartbreak these are best not expressed when intoxicated. The main reason for this is that when you are drunk, you have no filter. What. So. Ever. It seems like a GREAT idea at the time though.
To help elaborate further here are examples of the calm, breezy sober texts next to the desperate, inebriated embarrassments:
Sober you: “Hey babe, I hope you’re having a wicked night!” – Breezy
Drunk you: “I thought I’d have heard from you tonight. Where are you?” – Desperate
Sober you: “Out with the girls tonight. Maybe bump into you later.” – Breezy
Drunk you: “I’m out with the girls. where are you? We’ll come find you.” – Desperate
Sober you: “It’s a shame things didn’t work out between us. I still think of you often and hope you are happy.” – Breezy
Drunk you: “I miss you so much it hurts. Why don’t you fucking love me?” – Desperate
Sober you: “It’s weird without you, feels like something is missing.” – Breezy
Drunk you: “I’m not bothered at all that you don’t want to be with me, loads of fit blokes out tonight!” – Desperate
Notice the difference?
Waking up with a killer hangover and the realisation sweats is the worst.
There is nothing you can do to erase the damage that has been done. It’s no use calling your phone provider begging them to delete sent messages or voicemails – no can do. If only the Men in Black’s Neuralyzer pens had been invented so you could erase his memory.
To prevent this pain, the options are as follows:
