A friend of a friend asked me recently, how to inoffensively ask a girl if she uses party-drugs or if she wants to use them right now?

He did not want to ask her if she "blows noses" if you know what I mean. Substances not meant by that question include h, meth or crack and any kind of injection is out of the league.

  • Voted to close because what is charming or polite in that context will be simply a matter of opinion. Questions that can elicit only subjective opinions are regarded as off-topic on this site. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Apr 20 '17 at 14:08
  • What is not impolite is not less a matter of opinion. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Apr 20 '17 at 14:33
  • @Tᴚoɯɐuo I have rephrased the question although I think that many answers on ell are "opinion based". – stack_lech Apr 20 '17 at 14:33
  • @Tᴚoɯɐuo Shall I remove the word "inoffensively" to make it an accepted question? – stack_lech Apr 20 '17 at 14:41

    If there's a polite way to ask a stranger if she would like to do some party drugs, Jay, go ahead and answer. You might also let us know how to politely ask if she's a virgin. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Apr 20 '17 at 15:04

So much of this can depend on context. If it's obvious people are taking drugs at a party, one can simply ask

Want a hit?

or if in pill form, often the pill is offered, so it is more gesturing than speaking.

If you're making casual conversation, you might ask

Do you like to party?

which can then lead in various directions of conversation.

  • "Do you party" = "Would you like some cocaine?" I don't know who decided this, but there you go! – Some_Guy Apr 20 '17 at 20:51
  • To give a serious answer, we're here to give answers not moral advice. Among people who do party drugs (speed, coke, mdma etc.), "Do you party?" often means "do you take party drugs?". But in general if you're in a situation where that kind of thing wouldn't be weird to ask, then just ask directly. Not many people are going to be pissed of if you just say "do you like MDMA" or whatever. As long as you're not weird about it; if someone doesn't like to then they can simply say "no". – Some_Guy Apr 20 '17 at 21:03
  • If you're offering then just offer... "Hey do you want to do line?". "sure." or "no." It's fine. If you think that someone would be offended by the offer, then don't offer hahaha – Some_Guy Apr 20 '17 at 21:04
