It's been portrayed the same in almost every movie dealing with teenagers. You walk in and holding those infamous red cups, there's a house packed full of people dancing, chatting, and generally socializing. It's no secret that the word "party" means "to have inebriated sex" in Latin, but I've always wondered about a particular aspect of the inebriated sex life - drunken relationships.
What is a drunken relationship, you ask? Well, let me attempt to explain, you poor lonely neckbeard basement dweller. A drunken relationship is a relationship between two people that only occurs when at least one of the participants is intoxicated. Ideally, both participants are drunk or at least buzzed, because the former sometimes veers off into the no-no zone of a sexual assault charge because a certain girl can't accept the fact that she slept with someone while she was drunk. Anyway, I digress.
These two can often be seen all over each other at parties - whether in front of everyone, in the corner/backyard, or even through texts. Did we miss the update where they became Facebook official? I didn't know they started dating, they look like they're going to enjoy a good relationship. Just look at how much they're in to each other (no pun intended... yet)! Nope, you didn't fail in your Facebook stalking. You weren't out of the loop. Those two only realize their feelings for each other when they lose feelings in other parts of their bodies (such as the brain*).
What causes drunken relationships? I'm not really too sure - no one is, to be honest. Is it proof that, void of our moral inhibitions, we're a lot more "loving" than we'd like ourselves to believe? Are all the subliminal and societal stereotypes we see portrayed through medias finally being reflected in our desire to fulfill them? Perhaps it's something simpler. Maybe they just don't know what the fuck they're doing. All I want to know is what the other person is thinking the other ~250 days they're not in a D.R.Readers: How do you feel about drunken relationships? What do you think causes them, or am I just a complete mess in the dating realm? Have you had any experiences with a drunken relationship?
*Yes, I feel my brain, don't you?
