Do drunk people think they are more attractive, or do they just have fewer inhibitions?

Asked by GloPro (8346points) April 10th, 2014 from iPhone

Examples welcome.

My answer: I may get laid more, but I am definitely not more attractive.

Lower inhibitions & more approachable because of it.

Yes. Drunk people think they are more attractive (to themselves) and they have few if any inhibitions!

I want to make sure I understand. You want to get laid so you get drunk?

I lose interest in sex when drunk, and probably can’t perform sexually anyway if I’m stupid-drunk.

GloPro's avatar

@JLeslie Don’t judge. I get laid when I want to, sobriety not being a determining factor. Some if us are selectively easy and just fine with that.

My answer is that I have seen video of myself and am definitely not more attractive when drinking. Do I think I am? I make more spontaneous decisions, for sure, and I think I’m an amazing dancer when drinking. I sang karaoke once (Prince – Kiss), and the next day at the office when everyone was howling at the video made I just refused to watch. Why should I? I was there, and I was a ROCKSTAR.

I only drink when I am already in a decent mood. The drinks just make me feel better and better. (I have only gotten sick drunk once or twice in my life).
When I feel better and happier my expression is different. I know I look more attractive when that is the case.
Also my personality is more attractive when I loosen up a bit.

Of course you asked about “drunk” people, not just “buzzed” people. I don’t think drunk people are very attractive at all.

A drunk ROCKSTAR. Must have been fun.

I don’t drink too much anymore, but my kids saw me stank drunk one time, and they thought it I was hilarious. (The neighbor’s 40th b-day party!)

GloPro's avatar

@anniereborn Yeah, buzzed or drunk or whatever. It was more of a blanket statement. There are many levels. Who doesn’t hate a sloppy drunk. Ugh. Annoying. There are some very happy obviously inebriated, harmless people out there, and they make me laugh.
I’m just going to throw out a disclaimer, here. Yep, I go clubbing, party hopping, concert attending. I’m a single, social woman in a tourist based town, and I go out. I don’t get falling down, stupid drunk. I will never karaoke again… but there are the occasional laughable moments. It’s fun, and I’m funny, and at the time I do think I’m fabulous.

Oh sure. The stupid drunk version of adi is so much more attractive than the articulate halfway intelligent adirondackwannabe.

When I drank ( 28 years ago) I was always much more attractive and charming. You can tell by the pictures because I always had a shit eating grin on my face.

What it really was, was a matter of no inhibitions when drunk allowing me to feel at ease socially.

JLeslie's avatar

@GloPro No judgement. If you are getting laid when you are drunk it probably is because men are picking up on you will probably put out. Your an easier target drunk.

GloPro's avatar

Haha, nah, I usually am the one hunting if I am feeling frisky. I am no one’s easy target.

JLeslie's avatar

@GloPro I am talking about the man’s perception.

GloPro's avatar

Oh. Maybe, but most of the time I think they know I’m the aggressor. another disclaimer for everyone reading… This isn’t a regular outing goal.

Dunno, never been drunk

Drinking can and does lower your inhibitions and people know when you are less inhibited you are more likely to want to have even more fun. So when you get a little tipsy, you loosen up a bit and others will see you having fun wanting to have more fun and this will attract the attention of others wanting to join in on your fun and this can add up to one thinking they must be more attractive when buzzed.

It’s the latter of course. It isn’t elevation of your self worth that’s the incentive for all of those free drinks in the casino.

Blondesjon's avatar

I’ll let you know if I ever sober up.

cheebdragon's avatar

God I hate drunk people. I’d rather babysit a toddler than be around drunk people, kids are bad enough, but a drunk obnoxious adult is too much for me to deal with.

GloPro's avatar

@cheebdragon well, thanks for answering the question…

rojo's avatar

@GloPro ” I get laid when I want to”

you are soooooo lucky!

But, to answer your question I think it is a combination of lower inhibitions and lower expectations.

rojo's avatar

@ucme !!!!?!?!?!??!?!
Ok, not that I am not believing you but that is beyond belief.

rojo's avatar

@cheebdragon sounds like you need to participate instead of sitting on the sidelines.

I don’t disagree with you. If I am sober and everyone else has had a few, then yes, they are obnoxious a-holes but, if I have had my share, they are the salt of the earth.
