If you partake in adult beverages in social settings, you’ve probably become that girl. The one locked in the bathroom, standing on the front step, or huddled in the corner, drunk and crying. Whether it’s her boyfriend, her bestie, or her nemesis who made her cry, I’m a pro at drying the tears.
So keep the good times rolling by assimilating this bawling bitch back into the party with one of these quick fixes.
Introduce a cute critter
Track down the party host’s pet and use the fluffy guy to diffuse the situation. It’s impossible to cry when cradling a cuddly kitten.
Stuff her face
Everyone loves to chow down after a long night of drinking. So make her a quesadilla, heat up some leftover Chinese food, or order a pizza. Indulging in a greasy snack is guaranteed to smooth over any drunk drama.
Initiate a game
Distract the emotional lady by starting a board game or round of beer pong. Then recruit her for your team. It’ll pull her out of her slump and make her feel wanted.
Get on her level
Start crying yourself. Women are hardwired to comfort the downtrodden. And by bringing up your own dilemma, and sharing the tears, she loses her place as the center of attention. But use this tactic cautiously, as it could make things worse.
