Stay in the group
Your buddies are going to have to play an active role in essentially cock-blocking you throughout the trip, and to do this you need to stay with your group whenever possible. By sticking together, if your mind ever starts to wander your friends will be there to snap you out of it. This rings especially true at clubs, when a solo trip to the dance floor can turn hot and heavy really quickly and your friends will be too far out of range to keep you from pulling a Penn and Teller disappearing act up to her room on the sixth floor of New York New York.
Ask your girlfriend to call you at night
If you need some added motivation and accountability, ask your girl to call you at night. Play it off as an “I miss you” request, and not only will you earn brownie points with her, but you will have her on your mind the entire night. She will know something is up if you ask her to call and then suddenly aren’t available, so this precaution will prevent you from doing something stupid and will keep you on your toes for the trip. A phone call that you have to take can be a lifesaver from a risky situation. Don’t tell her to call at a certain time, instead just tell her to surprise you so you’re alert and expectant the entire time.
Relieve yourself before heading out
No, we’re not talking about taking a piss, but rubbing one out before you head out. Getting that urge out of your system in the privacy of your own room instead of regrettably in another woman’s will keep your thoughts on your lover, and prevent your hormones from taking over at a later point in the night. Apparently, Ted had the right idea before his date with Mary — just try and be a bit more careful than he was.
