There’s nothing like being handed an ice cold glass of ‘freebie’ on a Saturday night. But does accepting a sweet treat from that guy at the bar really count as a form of cheating? Sure, you had to smile and wink to claim your alcoholic award, but sometimes an empty wallet (no matter how ‘taken’ you may be) makes it hard to turn down the offer.
‘Drinks lead to bar bumps and bar bumps lead to late night humps’ or so the saying goes.
If this is true, does your partner have reason to count that innocent free drink as a form of cheating?
Taking a free drink from a guy at the bar makes you a commodity- one he just purchased with his credit card at the bar. Not only does the drink he bought you make you his property for the evening, he now thinks you owe him- and we all know what type of favour he’s hoping you’ll return in exchange for that Midori shaker. When you accept a drink at the bar, you accept a night full of being followed by your drink-buying romeo, and one very unhappy boyfriend when you make your way home. Leave the drink-buying to the singles who really are free to mingle.
‘Drink’ (verb) a thirst quenching liquid made for consumption. Last time we checked, the offer of a drink is just that- a drink. Unless you’re confusing martini glasses for engagement rings, there’s no real reason for jealousy. Given the downsides of being a woman (did anyone say monthly cycle?), every girl deserves to enjoy the odd free drink- no matter what her relationship status. Would you, a male, turn down a free beer given the chance? We didn’t think so. In a world where nothing comes free, let us appreciate our free (and sexual favour assuming) beverage in peace.
Does accepting free drinks make you a bad girlfriend? Have your say!
