How To Strategically Intervene If Your Friend Is About To Make A Huge Mistake
- ASK SOME OTHER FRIENDS TO CORROBORATE YOUR INITIAL FINDING
Chances are your friend is very drunk. You may also be very drunk. Maybe check yo’self before you wreck yo’self and make sure this ‘huge mistake’ isn’t actually a super-hottie that your friend should definitely play tonsil hockey with.
- BE DISCREET
If you want to spare the feelings of the person you have entitled a ‘huge mistake’, you can’t. They are going to see through this. Still, try not to actually call them a ‘huge mistake’ to their face. That’s not cool.
- (MAYBE) LIE
“He/she has a girlfriend/boyfriend” to the possible pasher is tried and true, coupled with a swift ‘yoink’ of your mate. You could also try ‘they have herpes, back away now’, but your mate might get a little dark about it.
- PLAY THE CLASSIC BAR CARD
Say, “Hey [friend], come grab a drink with me” and put some distance between them. That simple. Short and sweet, amigos!
