What happens when you exceed the TDMR?? 99 times out of 100 REGRET. That's what.
How do I know this?? Experience, duh. Two drinks will loosen you up plenty, but you gotta be careful not to go over the precipice. Violating the TDMR leads you to making out on his couch in front of his creepy roommate. It leads to remembering he was cute. Exceeding the TDMR makes you forget how he commented on the waitress' ass and that he swears like a sailor- an un-imaginative sailor with a limited vocabulary.
Worst of all, it leads to wasting your time on a second date with a dude you don't like. at. all.
Second date? Why Not? I had such a great time on our first date
Heed my advice ladies: you want to stay sober on the first date. I know... it's not intuitive. In the moment, of course you wanted to get tipsy to make it fun, or at least, bearable.
Just remember that in order to avoid REGRET (capitol letters), the TDMR is not just a guideline but the law.
