Don’t Do It: 5 Ways To Avoid Drunk Texting An Ex
It all starts so innocently. You’re out having a good time, trying to forget all about that recent breakup, so you’re knocking back a few glasses of feel good juice. Before you know it, you’re in the corner of the club drunk, crying and pouring your soul out to your ex via text message. By the time the sun comes up you’ve passed out and forgotten all about the night before…until you read your sent messages #fail. It’s happened to the best of us, but if you follow these five simple tips you’ll put a stop to those late night ex texts and save yourself a world of embarrassment.
Have A Next
They always say the best way to get over an old man is to get under a new one. Having a new boo keeping your mind occupied will save you from sending embarrassing drunk text messages to that ex you love to hate. If the new boo is doing his job, you’ll be too worried about sending him naughty drunk messages to care about your ex.
Give Your Phone To A Friend
While most of us can’t bare to be away from our electronic leashes for more than 30 seconds, if you know you’re the type to go all ‘Marvin’s Room’ when you’ve had a few too many, it just might be a good idea to hand your phone to your girlfriend to hold at the beginning of the night. If she’s a true friend she won’t give you back your phone until you’re completely sober, saving you tons of embarrassment and regret.
Erase His Number
Generally if a guy’s an ex, he’s an ex for a reason, so why should you keep his number in the first place? If you don’t have his number in your phone then there is no chance that you’ll send him random drunken text messages that you’ll regret later. Cut yourself off at the pass and erase him from your phone and your life. You’ll be better for it.
Leave Your Phone At Home
We know, we know, the thought of leaving your phone at home is simply horrific, but what do you need it for any way? You’re out on the town partying the night away to get your mind off of your ex, not get drunk and pour out your soul via text, FB and Twitter. Leave the phone at home and celebrate your new found freedom! Who knows, since your head won’t be in your phone all night you might meet a cute guy to replace old what’s his name.
Let’s face it, many of us could follow all the tips above and still find a way to drunk text or tweet our no good exes. The only real way to be sure you won’t do or say something you’ll regret is to not get drunk in the first place. There are plenty of things to do that will get your mind off an ex without the use of alcohol, so grab a few friends and go conquer the world alcohol and drunken text free.
