How Sipping A Drink Can Help You Find Love


How Sipping A Drink Can Help You Find Love
Drinking in moderation at social events can help you find your dream man!
Contrary to popular belief, a drink can be a great tool for finding a man!

With the holidays coming, social gatherings are sure to be on everyone’s agenda. Instead of wasting time explaining to people why you're single at the next party or night out, grab a drink and tell your favorite pushy acquaintance (or family member) that you’re “workin’ on it." Before we begin, I will mention that many tweets ago, YourTango’s very own Tom, created a hashtag on Twitter that said that #songsthatleadtosex were any songs by War or NWA. Now, maybe "Straight Outta Compton" might not work so well, but I’ll say a little "Why Can’t We Be Friends" attitude is encouraged when we talk about drinking, flirting and “becoming friends.”

This article is dedicated to all the women who wonder just how going to evening hot spots or cocktail parties is supposed to help them get a date. If you’ve ever wondered what drinking could actually bring to the table except you making a fool of yourself then check this out. Let me explain my perspective on decisions you can make in order to get your “going out” have a little more “going on” in the love department. 3 Flirting Moves That Drive Men Wild [Video]

More from YourTango: What His Favorite Cocktail Says About Him

Here are four ways to decide what you want to do and how to treat alcohol as your ally. Choose one or choose them all. I won’t judge and I try to never steer a girl wrong. I promise.

Ask yourself if you want to:

1. Pick up on the quiet guy.

You spot a guy who apparently has no ties, but acts a little shy. Sometimes he’s close, sometimes he’s far, but he always looks appealing. You want to get to know him and even if it turns out that he’s taken, at least you got to talk to a hot guy. Stop over analyzing it and go ahead.
Buy him a drink.
When the server presents him with the drink, he will most likely inquire where it came from. From experience, I can tell you that most servers have mastered the way of nonchalantly announcing a liquid offering from guest to guest, so don’t worry about that. If you catch the guy accepting the drink while looking your way, wave “Hi, how are you?” or lift your own drink in a subtle “cheers” like gesture. If he’s across the room, simultaneously mouth something incomprehensible. After all, you wanted him closer than farther, didn’t you?

2. Chat up a stranger (a good looking one).

Share this with someone you love (or even like a lot)!
