    i can understand if people don't like to drink, whether it be a religious reason; health anxiety; expensiveness of alcohol; bad taste, etc. but why are there people who don't like clubbing? what is there not to like about dancing with friends to good music til the early hours of the morning??? i don't get it

    Can't really tell if this is satire, but I'll take the bait,

    Good music is really subjective to start with.

    If you don't like dancing then that's basically all clubbing is. So I guess anyone who doesn't like dancing. It's not like you really get to hang out with your friends or any other benefits considering you can barely see/hear them.

    Perhaps they dont like loudness or the type of music. Not everyone is outwardly flamboyant and they prefer to do other things. Not everyone feels they cna dance.

    How cna you not appreciate that people are different?

    I don't like dancing, drinking and can't stand loud music or being too close to people in confined spaces. Also financially, i'd rather spend a clubbing entry fee on something else.

    It can get claustrophobic being crammed with sweaty people who can't dance and secondly are white because white people can't dance


    And thirdly are drunk. Two bad combinations.

    I like the social aspect, but not the aspect where you are just jumping up and down in a dark room :/

    Venn diagram fail.

    That's 7 combos.

    Sweaty & Can't Dance + White + Drunk

    Sweaty & Can't Dance + Drunk

    Sweaty & Can't Dance + White

    White + Drunk

    I enjoy it for a while, but after an hour or two I get a little fed up. It really depends on the music and the people your with. If both of those are good then I think most people would go until the early hours. Chuck me in a edm Ket hole club, and I probably won't enjoy myself.

    Ooof.. shots fired.

    Socialising with a lot of extroverted people isn't everyone's idea of fun. Doesn't help either when you don't have a huge amount of confidence in yourself.

    What is there to like?

    If you're in a pub there's generally music, you can actually hear people speak, you only really have to drink a couple of pints or less, less chance of getting groped/hit on by slobbering weirdos...

    When I go to clubs I never really enjoy it because I think you need to get absolutely smashed to even start to enjoy it, and I can't drink much at all so that's kind of ruined to begin with... Then it's just hours of standing on a dancefloor sandwiched between other sweaty folk, can't hear anyone, can't really catch up, then you gotta leave the club in let's be honest frankly dodgy areas of town at frankly dodgy times in the morning...

    Plenty of people enjoy it but it's just not for me. Maybe I don't have the right friends or haven't been to the right club (honestly, after the first few, I wrote them off altogether)... I prefer a pub or even a bar anyday.

    Personally, I can't wait for the semester to start and cheapo clubbing to be a thing. Nothing like having a fresher to lick your eyes on a Friday night.

    Don't think I'd ever want to (unless if for some unfortunate reason I get forced into it) because:
    Dancing - a no go for me
    With friends - hardly have any, or any in case, I don't have any I'd want to go with
    Good music - the music style's not really my thing
    Til the early hours of the morning - I don't particularly like the idea of being in such an environment at that particular time of day

    i'm glad i have gained the perspective of people who don't like clubbing/drinking during freshers' week.
    my second question is: what would you suggest i did with people who didn't want to go out during freshers'? is there any point in persuading them and trying to change their mind (i don't want to upset them or anything), or should i just find other people with similar interests?

    the thing is, i don't want to miss out on getting to know these people because we could have ended up being great friends and i'd never know, but i'm scared i won't see much of them if they never go out and i never stay in

    Dancing is totally alien to me. I will never understand how people find enjoyment in it because it's such a weird thing to do.

    I doubt there's any genre of music that isn't played in clubs. No matter what your taste of music, there's a club somewhere that plays it
