Clubbing
Posted 1/7/12 , edited 1/7/12
I didn't see a thread on this and thought it might be too good to be true. If so, and you can prove it, I apologize. Do your stuff.
------------------------------------

So I've been to the club once - ONCE- with a friend. You're not gonna get the best review from me. But it was not like anything I'd seen in some movies from the '90s, lol. Almost no one danced, really..just gave and received dick through their jeans. And please don't start calling me nerdy and what not because I came here to speak on it - it's true, I've seen it, I've endured it, I've wanted to slap guys across the face for it. What makes your "activities" better than me doing this?

I guess I was inspired to chat about this after returning from a party where an oldies cover band was playing. It was nothing like that. I've gone to a couple of those and can honestly say I have more fun there than dry humping a stranger at the club. This is because I can actually dance and don't have to worry about a stranger coming up behind me since almost everyone else on the floor is dancing, also. If you are tryna get it on there, I'm guessing people will stare at YOU funny; particularly the older generation, obviously.

To be fair, seems like you can dance at a club if you really want to. But the standard has nothing to do with actual dancing. So share your opinions, experiences, and if I ever decide to go back which I probably will at some point in the future, I'll do the same.

I don't like most clubs, especially the ones with a DJ... most of them play horrible top-40 remix music or god awful rap music... I don't really like dancing in the first place, but the clubs that I have been to that have been fun have been the ones with live music of some sort. I think most of the time people are there for the band itself and if you happen to meet someone cool than that's great.

But the clubs I've been there with loud incoherent non-live music have all been about the bump and grind.

Different clubs can be a very different experience. There are some which make me want to scratch my eyeballs out, and some that are a lot of fun. The crowd and the music make a HUGE difference. The kind you're describing are terrible. I much prefer clubs with a lot of energy, lots of people dancing. I also tend to prefer gay clubs(when they fall under the above criteria) because a) less guys trying to pick you up, b) better dancers and c) better music.

Might have to try this (I turn 21 this year..well, I'll try more of the standard first.) I guess the guys shouldn't mind unless you try to hit on them And more cash for the owner and bartender. Everybody wins.

You should definitely check out a swing club. Quite fun indeed, there was a couple of them were I used to live and were quite enjoyable. And any time i can dance to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and dress snazzy like, is a good time for me. Plus who doesn't love doing the Charleston, I mean really. Culture in the roaring 20's had such class.

I hate dancing, and I hate pop music.
You'll find me in the bar nextdoor.

I love clubbing! Every Wednesday night coz its student night and no pervy old men! Yey :D

As for dancing, its all about confidence. If you stand there bobbing up and down all tense you're not gonna get any free drinks lol. I only dance to songs I like. Cannot stand Pit Bull and "Tonight, lalala something tonight for all we know there might not be tomorrow" fucking hate that song and its on in EVERY club. So we tend to go to Reggae bars or rock clubs instead. Bit of System of A Down, perfect!

I've only been to a nightclub two times. And, read these words carefully.....

I

FUCKING

HATED

EVERY BIT OF IT!!!

I wanted to get out of there after 5 minutes (which of course I did). The first time was with some friends I haven't heard from years later, the other was part of a meetup with a so-called anime group that I quit last year.

So why in the blue fuck are these places popular? What the hell am I supposed to do in there and how is it any sort of fun at all?

I hated the atmosphere, the music, the opportunistic assholes trying to hit on every woman in sight, I don't dance, I rarely ever drink and when I do it's a mike's hard lemonade (which I only drink one bottle in public and that's it).

Now I'll probably get questioned for what I said, but you can ask away til you are blue in the face because I will never......eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeever....step into a nightclub again.

In my city, it probably hasn't changed much in the time I haven't been to clubs but the male to female ratio is about 1:2. Clubs have taught me 8 things; boy or girl it's extremely easy to get laid, there is no dancing there is only grinding, DJ is a job that anyone can do, feel sorry for guys dragged there by their girlfriends, people say that they are drinking for fun but what they really mean is that they are drinking to escape their first world troubles, it's really sad when people go there looking for a committed relationship, Photographer is another job that anyone can do, and it's really hard to look someone in the eyes or respect them after what you've just seen them do or have done with them. Oh, and I suppose one more thing; white girls are by far the craziest drunks.

My first year of University was spent pretty much as one big hangover. All I did was clubbing, drinking, and partying, and while it was nice to get it out of my system, upon self reflection the experience itself wasn't actually fun and I never did a single thing that I should have been proud of. After a while, I just stopped because this wasn't me, this was just me trying to fit in. The only time I went back was when I was in a relationship with this girl, where the times I got to see her were so few that I went just to spend time with her. For reasons that will remain unknown to you - big mistake. The nail in the coffin for me was well over a year and a half ago, seeing my (ex)girlfriend's drunk smiling face and realizing that this was the only time that she was truly happy - both she and I were pathetic. It made me incredibly sad and I haven't gone back since, nor will I ever.

Clubs are really just for hooking up. The DJ spins the tunes that get you laid, and the bartender mixes the drink that gets you laid. It wasn't too long ago that clubbing was just a phase for most people, but now it's more like a lifestyle. It's essentially the norm, but I'm a little hesitant to say that everyone should try it, though I think everyone should go once; and if you can get out of it, good for you (plus your liver and your genitals will thank you), but if you can't, good luck in life, you'll need it.
