I've never experienced beer goggles. Every time I go out to a bar or party, I discern who I think is attractive or unattractive before I start drinking, and everyone is the same level of attractiveness and looks exactly the same to me when I'm buzzed and when I'm drunk.
However, last night a guy told me I was the prettiest girl at the party, but I know that's not true in the slightest because my best friend, who is a model for Victoria's Secret, was standing right next to me. There was also a really hot blond girl and a beautiful, exotic Armenian girl I was partying with, so I definitely wasn't the best looking. This leads me to believe that he was experiencing beer goggles.
So, give me you opinion on beer goggles and your experiences with them, if you care to share.

It hasn't happened to me. If anything I'm less interested in sex and generally like to converse when I'm that inebriated. However, I've seen it first hand in some friends (guys). The pickiest sober guy I know has has said "I don't even care (what she looks like) dude, lets got get it". This was a random girl on the street, who...didn't look great.
More importantly, you may have been the prettiest girl to him, even if he was sober. Although men tend to have a vague common conception of beauty (we can agree the Rose McGowan is prettier than Rosie O'Donnel), if you ask 10 guys who is the prettiest girl at a party I doubt you'll get 10 answers that are the same. A girl next door may very well be prettier than a Victoria's Secret model to me.
