Night clubs and bars are good places to have fun and meet new people. But we all know that strangers, no matter how charming they try to look, can sometimes be up to no good. Sadly, this means that instead of enjoying your night, you also should be vigilant of red flags to keep yourself safe.There’s a Tumblr post which can help check if the stranger who offered to buy you a drink has any ulterior motives.

After Jennifer Dziura shared her experience with men buying her drinks, one bartender backed her up by saying that he has seen things like that happening on a daily basis.
Dziura said that, in most cases, men don’t buy drinks for women out of courtesy, instead they do so to make them vulnerable and get their guard down.
For those who find it hard to believe, she offered a test. Instead of accepting an alcoholic beverage, she said that a woman should agree to something else, for instance — food or a non-alcoholic drink. If he doesn’t accept her choice well, chances are his intentions were far from just being courteous.
The bartender shared a similar experience he noticed every night at his job, from 10 to 20 times per night to be exact. To help out, he offered some tips on what to do when accepting a drink from someone and which drinks to choose to not get drunk in a stranger’s company.
