Is drinking a turn-off?

Whenever you see someone of the opposite sex drinking alcohol, what do you think?
Is it a major turnoff?
Does it change your attraction?
and what about seeing that person drunk?
I'd like to hear from both genders on this.
DISCUSS.

drunk people are goobers. i laugh at them all. the funny drunks i laugh at of course, and the sad drunks i laugh at because they're being patchetic. and the mean drunks i laugh at because they're acting retarded, well so long as they're not trying to kill me (which has never happened).

my husband is a funny drunk, he is a total goober when he's drunk. last time it happened i was trying not to laugh at him. oh, and i'm a funny drunk too and he was laughing at me (we were not drunk at the same time).

I guess I just don't think that drunkeness and sexiness go hand in hand. It doesn't turn me on or off.

That opinion may change when I'm drunk though.

The worst are the Funny/Mean drunks. You'll be laughing your ass off about something with them, then all of a sudden, you get punched in the nose. Sheesh.

there is nothing sexier than a man who can hold his liquor.
i don't think it's sexy when a man orders a fancy cocktail.
men who know and appreciate good beer are keepers.
i am seriously, seriously attracted to men who drink straight whiskey.

Casual drinking. One or two beers/glasses of wine. Relaxed setting. Maybe at dinner.....NO PROBLEMS.

I may be unattracted to a stumbling, fall-down drunk....mainly because they are probably upstaging my drunkness. joking, really.

I don't find it attractive in the least, in reality, unless I am not too far behind them. I just don't want to have to clean up or support someone in that stage of consumption. And, at the same time, I rather not have them try and support me.

i appreciate it when a man can admit he's a sissy and orders a girly type mixed drink (anyone remember that skit on kids in the hall?)

I have no problem with a man who likes to drink as long as he can hold his liquor. I think happy/emotional drunks are hilarious but as soon as they turn into angry drunks, I'm out of there. I also hate it when guys go beyond a nice buzz and insist that you dance with them or have another drink.


On the other hand, I know I have been a very annoying drunk a few times in my life and I can't see how any man would find that the least bit attractive.

*note to self, take up drinking whiskey sans the cola...


seriously, "regular drinkers" kinda turn me off.

binge drinkers like myself are major turn-ons (especially after I have binge drinked, uh drank...)

I am completely turned off by drunken behavior (a couple of drinks to relax is one thing, getting drunk is another). Alcohol can transform some people's personality into something I truly cannot bear to be around. I'd much rather be around stoners (if I have to choose). Heavy drinking completely grosses me out.

I don't mind it when a guy drinks once in a while. I go to a party school, so I do the F.A.C. every now and then too. I just get irritated with the people who without fail center their whole weekend Thurs-Sun on drinking/bar hopping/hooking up, etc. It's been my experience that these guys are the most bland, conceited, unintelligent, unoriginal sheep ever.

I must have been drinking, cause it looks like everyone has the same avatar.

I hope I don't become a pod person
