    So out for the night with some friends and there was a really pretty girl there. I made some progress in getting talking. Later we all went on to a club. Her mate was trying to get off with my friend and not getting anywhere. And I was really flabbergasted when she came on to me, moving in for a cuddle and kiss. Afterwards we went back to hers for a coffee. I was a bit worried that she was drunker than me, particularly when she said to her brother who she shared a house with that she had met a fabulous guy - it felt a touch ott! Anyway I decided to go cautiously, leaving after a coffee, taking her number, and delaying a few days before getting in touch.

    Anyway when I made contact I got blown out - with a just wanting to be friends line. I felt pretty hurt, particularly since it is rare to fancy a girl at the start of the evening and have her in my arms by the end. I felt I should have atleast have been worth a date after what had happened.

    So what do you think happened? Do girls get beer goggles?

    The beer goggles phenomenon is an implication from having lowered inhibitions and greater impulsivity. This happens to both men and women, so yes I would expect women to get beer goggles, or at least a comparable sensation. I think that women place less value on a man's looks than men traditionally do on women, so perhaps for women it extends to more than just a lowered standard of aesthetics.

    Something similar once happened to me. The next time I went home with a girl I slept with her but that didn't work out either. Balancing act.

    Yes it felt as though she was up for it, but equally that it wouldn't be good the next day if we'd done it. I don't generally think of girls feeling that way...

    Girls are humans too, with human emotions and human impulses. It's best to always keep that in mind. Whatever you think you'd enjoy, there's a girl out there who'd enjoy it too.

    This.

    I don't get why people on here still seem to think that boys and girls are so different when it comes to their views on sex and relationships.

    Alcohol has similar, if not identical, impact upon the brain of males and females thus both experience reduced inhibition and distorted perception. So yes

    No, girls have some magical mysterious immunity that scientists have been studying for generations upon generations that prevents them being affected by standard reactions to alcohol. :rolleyes:

    Oh, sorry I misread your post. I would still think that was pretty common though unfortunately, for the person to have a change of heart afterwards I mean.

    Doesn't mean she didn't/doesn't like you, but some people find it embarrassing to think of what they might have said or done whilst a bit drunk and so just wanna forget about it.

    Thanks, guess you're right. Saw her a few times afterwards at the pub and was tempted to ask what had been on her mind, but felt a bit too self conscious, and even a little resentful, to do so.

    you're idolizing girls when they're actually normal ppl. Let them be people and try not putting them them on such a high pedestal.
