Things That Go Bump In The Night: Beware of Booty Calls

Love, Self

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. You don’t want him to think you are easy, but you would like to go over because you would like to see him. Consequently, you are also inebriated as well. He IS paying for the taxi. Does this mean he really likes you? What to do in this situation?

Since the rise of the cell phone, alcohol infused late night hook ups, also known as booty calls, have progressed quicker than your man’s libido. Be careful how you handle them as they can be a dangerous weapon of self-destruction.

Texting is the easiest way to make your intentions known because there is no verbal contact. It’s not in your face, although the call may well result in something along those lines. If the answer is no, his pride remains pretty much intact.

The booty call typically occurs when the bars have been let out after closing time, or when a party has ended. The fact is alcohol makes guys horny and the hornier a guy is the more stupid he becomes. 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:

  1. The Reliable Call  - You are the ‘sure thing’ to this man, but the only stable relationship you have with him seems to always start at 3 in the morning. If he hasn’t found anyone else by the end of the night, he knows he can call on you. Do not fall into his trap. In this case it is worth hanging up the phone right away, or even better, not answering it at all. Do not even give him the time to convince you to come over. Save your sanity and don’t become ‘that girl.’
  2. I’m drunk now so I can call you. He has ingested so much alcohol into his body that now rather than 98% water it’s 100% vodka, He has the courage of the Dutch. He knows that you normally would not go for him, and being 3am on a Saturday night he hopes that you are on the same level as him…drunk and horny.
  3. The Party. He knows you don’t like to miss out on the action, and if he makes it sound happening enough, he knows he can coerce you to attend. The thing is, his after-party consists of him, a bottle of liquor and a packet of condoms, if you’re lucky. Either that or he thinks that because his roommate is home with a girl that constitutes a party. When you arrive you can guarantee your drink has already been made for you, and so has his bed.
  4. The Lowest Common Denominator. He tries to connect with you over whatever it is you want to do. You tell him you want to sleep and surprisingly that is all he wants to do too, next to you of course. So he’s promising to let you sleep… yeah right. “Are you hungry?” he asks. Your hungry, he’s hungry, but not for food. He tells you he can make you an amazing carbonara. He’s a man, he wants more then carbonara!

Should you worry that by going over in the middle of the night will mean the guy wont respect you, then by all means, don’t go. Guys do not secretly hope that a serious relationship will materialize from this after midnight invitation. The only stable relationships these guys have is with their mothers, their boys and their booze. The moment that you walk into his house, just like Cinderella's coach turning into a pumpkin, you have become 'The Booty Call' girl.
