The Couple Who Drinks Together, Stays Together — Here's 31 Reasons
There's no shame in my and my boyfriend's boozy game. We love being together with or without a glass in hand, but we are not afraid to say yes to a sip of our favorite drink when the occasion calls for it. Things get funny, things get deep, things get weird. Either way, he's my partner in crime and in wine, and I wouldn't have it any other way. If you and your significant other like to drink together, you'll totally relate to these 31 things. Bottoms up.
You know their drunk tells better than anyone.
When she's impulse buying everything on Amazon one-click buy or he starts having heart-to-hearts with strangers, you know it’s time to go to bed.
You bond over getting more educated about the types of alcohol you both love.
Your romantic getaways usually involve some sort of wine pairing, beer tasting, tequila tours, or other alcohol-centered outing.
But neither one of you are all THAT picky when it comes down to it.
You’re always there to help each other keep it classy.
Admittedly, sometimes all does not go as planned.
When you’re at family events where there's alcohol, you both try to help each other play it cool.
Shh, no one knows.
They know your deepest, darkest secrets because you’ve spilled them (and your drink) plenty of times.
You find each other endlessly entertaining and hilarious.
The two of you have no filter.
. . . And no shame about having no filter.
You're (sometimes brutally) honest with each other.
Remember that whole "no filter" thing?
You have phrases and inside jokes you've invented while not entirely sober.
And they are HILARIOUS. To the two of you, at least.
You’ve been there for each other during many drunk existential crises.
You both wholeheartedly agree that wine and beer should count as part of your monthly grocery allowances.
Your foreplay is not like other people's foreplay.
. . . and sometimes things can get a little weird.
Hey, drunk sex is still sex.
You're never too shy to get silly with each other.
You both know the cure to a long Saturday night is a Sunday bottomless mimosa brunch.
And bed by 7 p.m.
You can tell when they're fake mad or real mad.
You have endearing nicknames for each other that get used more and more with each drink consumed.
There’s no judgement in your relationship. Well, there's not MUCH.
Because, let’s be honest, who are either one of you to talk?
Gift giving on holidays and birthdays is super easy.
You know what they REALLY want.
Your arguments aren't always real arguments.
Though they may feel real the time.
Then the next day you remember that your fight was literally about nothing, and you think the whole thing is actually hilarious.
Then you have morning makeup sex. Cheers to THAT.
You give each other the BEST compliments.
And you really mean them!
You’ve got your favorite late-night takeout orders memorized, and you both know when it's time to start dialing.
You know you always have someone who will watch your back and make sure you both make it home safe and sound.
If you aren't getting a drink with your dinner, it's probably because one or both of you is sick.
Sometimes a little whiskey helps?
And you know that the two of you are always on the same page.
You're not afraid to show each other affection.
Publicly. Privately. You're not picky.
You know they really love you because they have seen you at your very best and very worst.
And they're still around.
