    I've just realized I don't know what I want in a person anymore but I definitely know what I don't want.

    Hello I just arrived back from my work holiday party it is 1:30 am
    Deffo drunk but hopefully tomorrow is not too bad

    Anyway, there is a woman there
    (okay I’m trying to say woman rather than girl these daysbut it’s weirdly formal too, because there’s no good “guy” equivalent that is in regular usage)
    I met her approx 4 years ago at a friends party, who she met via a coincidental shared cab ride
    Hit it off, got drinks one day after the party
    Then another day went to a movie together
    Then she said it wasn’t a good time for her to see me again, so okay (and at this time I was in my very very inexperienced in dating stage as a v late bloomer so I was prob even worse)

    Then flash forward a few years (and had occasionally kept in touch and seen her here and there) and she is working at the same company as me - and not in any capacity that we work together
    Reconnect, have lunch a few times here and there
    I invited her to a concert a few weeks ago and she came with me and we got pierogies and beer and got high and saw some punk rock and it was fun
    Met her at another concert last week but she was with a friend and didn’t get much chance to chat before and after, still was fun and we met up
    At the holiday party briefly hung out and danced in her group of folks, she had her weed pen and was passing it around and offered me, not unexpected
    In coat check line I saw her and asked if she and other coworker wanted to split a cab, since she was near me

    So we did, and cab driver messed up and dropped other coworker off first and then me and her
    Chatted a bit but lightly

    Anyway

    I am in this state of like hey, I think you’re cool
    At some given point we had a connection and you are single
    And there is at least some friendly connection here
    But, like -
    At this point I’ve never dated or even successfully expressed interest in someone I know IRL aka not via a dating app (and have only really dated one person) so I’m very unsure about things

    I generally want to hang out with her and think she’d be a swell person to date (same company yes, but also far enough removed that we never see each other unless we plan to really, and I know enough work people who have)
    But: I don’t really know how to ask it without feeling... creepy or coming on too strong, or like fear of misreading signals

    So I dunno what to do about that all
    Occasionally willing and interested in hanging out with me - but like is that just politeness and friendliness
    Like if she doesn’t reach out to me etc

    The playing it safe part of me is like yeah nothing will come from it leave it
    But that’s the part I always listen to
    The part of me that’s like, hey I’m worthwhile and we get along, you should give it a shot is there, but not very strong
    Like I’m often scared to text or text too often etc
    Doesn’t know how to go about anything

    Lol ah me

    Thank you for indulging my somewhat intoxicated rambling, it helped me just to write it uhhh I should probably just journal

    Reading it is not necessary but if you feel like a comment or advice re: dating and expressing interest etc, pls go ahead

    Ok
    I finally got someone to talk to me not a bot or someone to string me along for whatever reason
    She just asks me to be more open and such there is a lot more I would say but it's personal stuff and brain spider stuff as she talked about a problem she has and how she sees the similarity of some of the ones I talk about revieling we both have the same brain spiders just different flavors

    And she deleted her account
    Sigh

    Didn’t even have to be that drunk, tis just how my body does it

    I drink water before I go out and I guzzle after I get home.

    I haven’t had a hangover in like 4 years, it’s fucking awesome.

    Yeah that doesn’t save me at all
    I drink lots of water before
    During
    After
    With food and electrolytes and salt
    And sometimes even supplements

    If I have more than 3 drinks these days my body is like nope, you’ve poisoned me, and my stomach dies and my brain is in a fog
    Sometimes I feel off for more than a day

    Even when I was a young college aged lad I could get hungover p easily but less easily and it lasted less and was easier to recover from

    You’re lucky
    Some people just have good drinking genetics / bodies
    Others do not

    I expect in a few hours everything will be v bad
    (And it’s Friday so I can’t just mask it all day with being high which usually helps)

    Ah well, can’t choose our lots in life

    (It does make me jealous
    I can’t even get too drunk without feeling unwell
    But I guess that’s probably good to generally not drink too much because I know I’ll die)

    Went to zoo lights at the national zoo with the boyfriend last night, it was a fun walk but as he put it "i expected it to be unbelievable but it turned out to be very believable"

    It was still a very nice trip out though! Would recommend to anyone looking for a pleasant 40-60 minute stroll with some pleasant lights (provided its not too chilly)

    That’s stinks, but in the long run it’s better having a strong incentive not to get blasted too regularly.

    I may have discovered this super effective technique, but it hasn’t prompted any increase in drinking, which I had mostly stopped to avoid hangovers.

    Once or twice a year of dedicated, let’s do shots type drinking is pllllleeeeennnnnnttttyyyyyyyyy

    I can't get 2 beers in without becoming a puddle of cuddle and sleep.

    3 or more and I'm no longer a good time at parties.

    I really have not had beer or liquor in an epoch
    I feel the stuff I go though at work alone is an excuse to drink.

    Since Washington state has become greener, my alcohol intake has gotten pretty low.

    Which is good!

    I like being tipsy after three beers!

    Since entering my thirties even a single drink or two can have me feeling bleugh the next day, so I usually abstain

    I used to drink a lot

    Like, my gf said to me once "btw when I say my friends and I have gone out drinking and are now drunk, we mean like 4-5 drinks, nowhere near what you'd consider drunk." I could put away 10-12 pints or spirit equivalents on a proper night out, and do that a couple of nights in a row maybe.

    I've recently tried to cut down a lot because the hangovers, expense, health considerations etc all add up. So my clubbing and hard drinking days are past, it's clubbing and gentle drinking now, outside special occasions!
