It’s a quater after one I’m a little drunk and I need you now. Said I wouldn’t (text), but I lost all control, and I need you now. And I don’t know how I can do without, I just need you now.
You might remember the Lady Antebellum lyrics which glamourized the late night drunken phone call ot text message from your ex. It’s a great song that embodies the point that if an ex slips up and drunk texts you in the middle of the night, then you are still on his mind if only for a while.
If you believe that being under the influence acts as a truth serum, you’d see the drunk text in a positive light. If you are more conservative, a drunk text will likely be a total annoyance bordering on harrassment and a good reason to shut off your cell phone or even block that number from your plan come morning.
If an ex contacts you in the middle of the night take it as a mild compliment if their texts are of the nice i miss you nature. As far as responding, it’s probably best not to respond to drunken texts. First of all, you don’t want this drunk ex to talk you into them coming over since they are in fact under the influence and shouldn’t be driving.
Also, just ask yourself if you want to go there. If you miss your ex also you could send a response during the day time hours. If they really wanted to make up, they’d contact you during the waking hours and make another effort. If its just a late night call with no follow up, let it go (especially if you are over them).
People make mistakes, and often regret breakups or reminicse about the person. It’s up to you to decide what to do about the drunken text. If you want to get back together, a day time response might be fine. If you think this person was just looking for a little late night action, then let it go.
Beware the late night text from an ex who really does not want to get back together with you. If they are drunken texting you hoping for a little late night action in between their internet dates, then just ignore the drunken texts. Block this person too if they continue to bother you and you have no desire to communicate with them ever again.
You can always tell when a person truly misses you. If they truly want to get back together they will put in a genuine effort to get in touch with you during the day and ask you for plans to go do something together. Communication channels are open if someone is trying to makeup.
Think twice before you rendevous with a drunken texter. Odds are, the problems in your relationship are still there and won’t be addressed by a late night drunkster. If you’re the one doing the drunk texting consider your actions. If you really care about this person you’d contact them during the day.
If you slip up and drunk text it’s not the end of the world. It’s just, if you are for real, you should follow it up after you’re sober and tell this person you care again within a few days time. Apologize for the late night disturbance. In case you don’t know this obvious fact, drinking is bad for you and causes you to lose inhibition and do dumb things (such as drunk text an ex).
Bottom line, don’t answer drunk texts. Let the person contact you when it is appropriate and respectful. Advice for the drunken texter is very simple. Don’t drink and text.
