A Page From The Chris Brown Handbook: Partying & Girlfriends
“Is it possible to sniff cocaine off a stripper’s nipple and then have a quiz night with red wine just 24 hours later?”
A lot of men tend to feel like once they are off the dating market, their social lives come to an end. That’s not necessarily the case. Although some girlfriends are adamant about their men staying in the house with them on weekends or, even worse, insistent on tagging along, just because you are in a relationship doesn’t mean you can’t still go out and enjoy yourself. AskMen published a little article that I found to be a great read for men in relationships who are looking to continue their stint as the life of the party, regardless of their dating situation. Peep the excerpt below and click on the link that follows to read the full article:
The first step is realizing that the reason this hasn’t happened before is completely your fault. In our own minds, we tend to think that we’re at least 16 times cooler than we actually are and 50 times wilder. We think that our nights out on the town replicate what happens when you mix The Hangover, any of Jay-Z’s videos and Charlie Sheen. In fact, what we actually do is drink rubbish lager, perv over the bar staff, dry hump a random girl and masturbate at home furiously with one hand while struggling to hold together the chicken burger we bought with the other. The “night out” is already implanted in our minds as an environment unsafe for a girlfriend, so that needs to stop.
Another thing that needs to be controlled is being sneaky. Being sneaky is never fun, always ends in a fight and puts you at constant unease. It’s important that, from day one, you set a precedent for the rest of your relationship. Meaning, don’t be a dick and ensure that, in terms of your sex life, you lock that away firmly in your girlfriend’s closet and leave it there. Don’t text other girls you’ve been with, don’t tempt yourself into a Facebook message exchange with someone you would happily do the no-pants dance with and leave the sex chat at home.
This may seem irrelevant and a bit extreme, but what you don’t realize is that when you’re out with your friends, you’re in your comfort zone — a place where nothing bothers you, and all that is on your mind is fun. The last thing you want in these situations is the addition of an ingredient that could tense you up and cut the night short. If you open up your life to someone intimately (stay with me, fellas), then you should be happy to open the social doors of your life, too.
