    God only knows what he does when you are not around. This is not acceptable and he is not a great bf!

    Not "awesome" at all! Why do you put up with this?

    Unfortunately, I know all too well. High functioning alcoholics have two lives. They're seemingly normal-looking which to others is nondescript with a job, house, nice car and comfortable lifestyle. Then once doors are closed, the drinking starts and repeats its mentally sick self all over again everyday. It's a drinker's drug of choice which impacts the rest of the household in the most miserable way. It's such a terrible disease.

    Thanks, pippy longstocking. (Btw, I enjoyed 'Pippy Long Stockings' stories as a child.) Yeah, an alcoholic's life even a high functioning alcoholic's life is a pure living hell for everyone involved.

    A guy who gets drunk then prowls around trying to pick up women is not "awesome".

    when my boyfriend gets drunk, hes get this confidence and starts being really friendly and flirty with females. we will be out at a bar or restaurant and there will be a girl bartender and a guy bartender and he will be friendly and flirty and nice to the female one and feels threatened by the male one - he will approach random girls to say something witty and funny but literally never does it with random males -
