My [m/40] girlfriend [f/35] doesn't want me to touch her after she's been drinking.

This entire post is not even rooted in facts. People experience alcohol differently.

I'll never understand who you people are. You come into posts blasting that you can NEVER make an educated guess, because there's a 0.00000001% chance that something may not be 100% true.

researchers found that drinking increases levels of norepinephrine, the neurotransmitter responsible for arousal, which would account for heightened excitement when someone begins drinking. Norepinephrine is the chemical target of many stimulants, suggesting that alcohol is more than merely a depressant. Elevated levels of norepinephrine increase impulsivity, which helps explain why we lose our inhibitions drinking. Drunken brains are primed to seek pleasure without considering the consequences; no wonder so many hook-ups happen after happy hour.

Is this some new age fetish or something? I'm not saying people don't have different reactions, someone could be allergic to alcohol, it doesn't mean that trends, stereotypes, etc...don't exist for a reason. Why in the world does that bother you?
