My GF of 3 months told me a couple days ago she wants to go to the bars with her friends before college ends in a few weeks. I told her she can do what she wants to do but the more I think about it the more I regret saying that. It's a known fact that the bar scene is for getting drunk and meeting new people which usually turns into hooking up. While I trust my GF we all know that alcohol affects your decision making and given enough alcohol and a persistent guy she may cheat on me. Since meeting we have always gone to the bar together and for her to all of a sudden say she wants to go with her friends only screams trouble to me. I don't want to be controlling and give ultimatums that if she does something we are through but I don't understand if you're in a relationship why you would want to go out to the bars without your sig other and more over why you would want to even risk something happening!!! Am I off base here? Since I already told her to do what she wants to I just play it off or call her out on it?

Uh, yeah, you're WAY off base!!!
Why does she want to go out to a bar with her friends without you? Because having some fun with your friends is a normal thing for any person to want.
Even when I was single, I certainly didn't go to bars for the sole purpose of getting drunk and hooking up... I went to bars to have fun with my friends, dance a little, play some pool or darts, and just have a good time. Literally, NOTHING about my bar behaviour has changed since I've gotten into a relationship, except that if a cute guy does happen to hit on me, I'll tell him I have a BF instead of engaging him in a flirty conversation.0
