@rollingzeppelin: Yeah but despite his obvious and idiotic misinterpretation of what he thought she wanted. He still came right out and told her what he wanted and expected from the relationship. Even the next day when he was sober he stood by what he said. Sure he tried to back peddle his way out of the fight, but he didn't try to throw off what he said as drunken ramblings. She now should know exactly where she stands with him.
Ok, so instead of treating the delicate situation with respect for this person you've been with for quite a while you just get the hard part over and done with when you're shit faced, and then "stick to your guns" by blaming the break-up on your made up thoughts on how your girlfriend wants the relationship to go. I can think of many ways to handle the situation better. The fact that he still tried to get sex after that just shows that he's using her and doesn't give a shit. People who use others like that are not ones to look up to, no matter how brutally honest they are about their diskishness.
