A woman on Yahoo Answers asked yesterday why a guy she is interested in is acting so strangely. She was out drinking the other night and called him when she was very near to being blackout drunk. He told her not to call him when she was drunk, and wouldn’t answer her repeated drunken callback attempts. The next day he tried to contact her multiple times, but now she is ignoring his calls. She wants to know why a man would act this way.
Here is my answer:
This is a classic case of not realizing what you want until you can’t have it. I can’t tell you the number of men who have contacted me in a panic after figuring out too late that their dream in life was to marry an alcoholic party girl. One man only realized his error after introducing a nice well mannered woman with self restraint to his mother; she took one look at her and pointed out that he wouldn’t want such a boring woman to raise his children! The problem for him of course is that by the time he accepted his mother’s words of wisdom all of the truly alcoholic girls were already married.
All you can do is accept that this is entirely his problem. Most men take a few years before they can truly appreciate a woman who is able to get blackout drunk. Just keep doing what you are doing, and good things are bound to happen.
I intended this to hopefully jar her into reconsidering the path she is following. When I submitted it I thought the most likely response would be for her to withdraw the question (as ultimately happened to this one). I was surprised to see that she very quickly selected my response as the best answer, giving it a five star rating with the comment:
Hehe I loved your words, and agree with you on what you said. Many thanks 🙂
My best guess is that I was too subtle, but my wife is convinced that the woman knew I was calling her out and being called out by a man was exactly what the woman was craving.
