@bmo88:  Alcohol reduces people’s inhibitions, so that’s probably why.  My husband doesn’t get really drunk very often, but when he does he’s just a little sillier.

@bmo88:  We don’t get drunk often, but my FH certainly brings the party when he does. Shawn is excited to get married, Party Shawn CANNOTWAIT to get married. He’s still himself, just an even goofier version 🙂

My SO is 32 and has never been drunk. He doesn’t have a problem with alcohol or other people drinking, but, at most, we might have a single drink once per year. I could get drunk once in a while if I wanted, but his total lack of drinking rubbed off on me very early in our relationship. Now I have no tolerance to alcohol whatsoever, so I completely avoid it.

My Fiancee is very similar (although the difference is that we drink often). He’s much more outgoing and funny and witty when he’s had a drink and on the odd occasions that he drink too much, he becomes a sweet soppy hugging monster – it’s adorable.

When he’s sober, he’s generaly very quiet and doesn’t join in group converstions much.

It feels like a terrible thing to say, but I do prefer him when we’re out if he’s a little drunk.

We’re both like your FI : shy, a bit in our ”bubble” in public. So after a drink or two, we become more comfortable around people (especially if they drink too, everybody becomes cheerful). We laugh a lot, smile a lot, are in very good mood. However I would say most of the time we only get to the ”tipsy” point (slightly drunk).

@bmo88:  My husband can knock ‘me back pretty good (what your FI drank wouldn’t even phase him) but when he does get tipsy it definitely loosens him up. It’s funny at first but if he keeps drinking he gets sloppy and depressed so we don’t keep alcohol in our house.

I become very loud (I don’t realize I am being loud) and my husband becomes SUPER horny.

No, my husband generally is nice & sociable without drinking & super affectionate and always friggin’ horny.  I don’t feel like drinking changes him at all.

My DH didn’t date in HS to keep his grades up, barely dated in college so it wouldn’t detract from his study time, broke up with his late college GF to focus on work after college, was single for four years before he met me…

But you get this guy wasted, and he is a party! He dances, he sings, he is the life of the party!

He’s great with people always, and super friendly all the time to everyone, but when he’s wasted? He’s like a one person Animal House (only instead of with girls, it’s him and his BFF taking naps together)

One of his friends actually thanks him for saving her marriage with his presence and a football full of Everclear in Las Vegas!

FI gets silly when he’s drunk. I don’t know if there are any bronies on the bee, but he becomes Pinky Pie, essentially. Boucing off the walls, friends with everyone, if there was a confetti cannon, he’d be all over it. Unlike Pinky, though, chances of it turning into a pantsless party is very high.

DH has never been drunk and only borderline tipsy once (that I’ve seen in the 10 years we’ve been together). He might get a litte bit more relaxed and talkative but that’s it. I’ve tried to get him to get drunk before just to see how he acts and he won’t do it because he’s afraid he’ll be an angry drunk (his father was a really bad drunk and while never hit his mom would yell, scream, curse, and act out.).
