Thanks for the replies, will take it all on board. Uni is short for university, sorry should of made that clear.
drinking like this isn't synonymous with good game. I think you're suffering from major AA and this doesn't really go away with alcohol. if you've done it before you can do it again (I'm imagining you weren't drunk your whole relationship). change your mindset from I need to be drunk to be interesting to 'I'm already more interesting than they are' at all times.
Yeah I wasn't drinking at all during our time together, but she was the one that went for me and started the relationship (admittedly something I have never experienced before). A couple weeks after we broke up I started going out and getting wasted, because I wanted to prove her wrong when she said I wasn't outgoing enough during the breakup period (She knew this when she chose to date me!)
I like to think I can handle alcohol well and can even appear sober when I'm heavily drunk, but I know this probably isn't true haha.
So basically, drink in moderation on nights out and try to follow up on number closes. Guess I already knew this but has been good to hear your opinions on it. Thanks.
