Don’t worry — not ALL men live like they’re trying to recreate The Hangover…I think
When there’s excessive amounts of alcohol involved, there’s usually debauchery — which is why most women loathe the thought of their man having a boys night out. Believe it or not, we always tend to think cheating, strippers and blackouts occur every single time a man and his buddies get together (and we wouldn’t always be wrong). It’s only natural to have a fear of the great unknown, but if you try putting the kibosh on his fun, will it ruin your relationship?
Um, hello…YES. Men are contrary human beings. If you forcefully tell them the sky is blue, they’re going to turn right around and argue it’s green just to be pains in our asses. So telling your boyfriend he can’t or shouldn’t do something is the wrong way to handle him.
Honestly, you know he’s going to do what he pleases, so act like it doesn’t bother you in the slightest. Give him your blessing to go out and have fun (fun NOT meaning the license to hook up with bleach-blond strippers, of course); set him free. Be the great girlfriend that you are, even if you don’t mean a single word of it. Remember, he got involved with YOU — not your mom.
To keep your mind off of what trouble he’s causing (and how many ones he might be spending), I suggest having a night of your own. If you don’t feel like having a Hangover-style night of your own, you can still do something that makes you happy. Grab your girls and head out dancing, or buy a bottle of wine and sit around watching old movies. Whatever it may be, distract yourself.
When he gets home all worse for the wear, don’t ask too many questions. A simple — and non-loaded — ‘Did you have fun?’ will suffice. I guarantee you that giving his freedom is the best thing you can possibly do. Sorry to use a cliche here, but if he’s yours, he will come back to you. And if he doesn’t, I still predict you’ll know just where to find him…in the champagne room.
