Things That Go Bump In The Night: Beware of Booty Calls
Nothing good happens after 2 a.m. So, what really goes on in a man’s head when he‘s drunk dialing?

Its 3am. You have just come back from a night on the town and are somewhat intoxicated. Your phone rings and it’s him - the guy from the bar the other night or one of your ‘special’ friends. He invites you over to his apartment. Now the question is, to go or not to go? Bigger dilemma, he offers to pay for your cab. You don’t need to walk in the cold, figure out how to take public transportation at this hour, or make the dumb mistake of driving a car.

This makes him more likely to call you in the late hours, just as you’ve drifted off to dream about someone sexier, to convince, plead and often, beg you to come over.

Your judgement may be clouded if you have been in the club getting tipsy. You may decide to go because your carnal urges have awoken, too. However, if you are stone sober and receive this call. Stop and think. Would this person call you at 3 in the afternoon? Does this person ever want to spend time with you when the sun is up? 

Booty calls fall into four main categories:
