I'm a younger guy, most of my friends enjoy house parties and going downtown to the bars on the weekend, most only recently hit the legal age. But I just can't get into it. House parties aren't so bad, depending on who's place it is and what the crowd is like. Sometimes I can just chill with some people, chat, and have a decent time but I don't overly enjoy it. Other times, if I barely know anyone, I'll awkwardly wander around and keep to myself. Those suck. I actually do enjoy going to the bar, but usually the more restauranty-ones, where you can grab a burger and sweet potato fries, drink some beer and play pool with your buddies. I don't care for watching MMA at bars, too many arrogant fucks who think they know the sport well because they saw one Brock Lesnar fight. As for the younger-targeted club bars...I fucking hate it. I'm so out of my element. Blasting the top hit songs of the week (not good...), bright lights, crowds, drunk assholes, and ditzy chicks. You've got all these dudes approaching you like "BRO, I'M SO WASTED, HIGH FIVE!", which to me just screams "ACKNOWLEDGE MY EXISTENCE!". The girls will dance around seductively (and usually unsuccessfully) and sing along to the shitty songs, trying to find a cute guy. Which I guess can be good if you just want to get some, but awkward if you're just there to chill and someone starts trying to coerce you to dance and grind. I know for a lot of people you just get so drunk that you stop giving a fuck, but I don't get that drunk. I usually puke before I get that drunk. I just can't consume enough alcohol to lose all inhibitions. To me, the people all kind of just blend in and act like one of two stereotypical characters (1) DRUNK GUY, and (2) DRUNK GIRL. I don't mean to talk down to these people, to each his own. I just find it surprising that nobody really feels the same way. All my friends are dumbfounded at my indifference to partying and talking to girls at parties. I'm interested in women, but I can't bring myself to yell into someone's ear over loud, pounding music to engage in a boring ass conversation in the hopes of getting somewhere. I prefer to just talking to girls at college, having a decent conversation, getting coffee. Not saying one is better than the other, but I'm more comfortable with the latter. What say you Mayberry? Do you party bro?
