...I was out with a few friends tonight. They wanted to go to a bar...I have no problem with having a few drinks (I'm of age!) but I knew if I went out, I would be tempted.

I got a lot of good advice on here about being tempted, and putting myself in such situations. (Its not easy being a young woman in college, these days!) So I kindly declined and had them take me home. I still got to hang out with them for a little bit but now I'm quite happy to spend the rest of my evening with hot coffee, the internet, and some corny Saturday night TV!!

So just wanted to say thanks for all the help before. Now I feel like I can handle it, for sure! :wave

Way to go! It sounds like you made a great step towards a happy (still social) and successful college career! :thumbsup:

You're welcome! It's not silly at all! :) Sometimes, the best fun is unwinding on your own.

Are they aware of your feelings? My friends know that I do not drink socially, so if I ever go out, I stay a tea-totaler. If they are real, good friends, they will respect your wishes. Honesty is often a good policy. It is tough being a male in our society, because most male-bonding involves objectifying the female-sex.... something I refuse to do.

I chose the word I wanted to use. Shrug. I have much affinity for the tradition of romanticism and theopoetics, so I do not de-value the importance of sentiment like many in the Western tradition do.
