    I find it funny how some guys have no rhythm what so ever - totally out of sync with the beat/music.
    Also lots of people go clubbing and don't dance you know?

    The first few times I had fun clubbing, then it got repetitive. I can still go once in a while but it is not something to do on a regular basis. I much prefer to sit down with people at a pub or cafe and interact with them properly, have good conversation. Either that or a fun nature activity, or a visit to the museum, cinema etc. I rarely drink so clubbing is usually dancing while sober.

    I don't like the music they play; every time I go clubbing the people around me take "mood enhancing drugs" the sort of which do nothing to me but make me vomit - this happens no matter who I'm with; I can't even contemplate drinking alcohol to have a good time - as a person with depression alcohol makes me feel worse, I tried to do clubbing on soft drinks but just ended up having my drink spiked with vodka by someone who is no longer a friend. I haven't been clubbing for about five years and it isn't something I feel I'm missing out on.

    I'd rather go to the pub for a night out, at least you can hear yourself think and spend all night sat in the beer garden if the mood so takes you.

    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
    Some might disagree with the "good music" thing. The sort of music that most clubs play isn't my type of music.

    Not sure if you're trolling, but thought I'd take the bait anyway. If you haven't started uni yet, I would suggest that you be more tolerant of what people find enjoyable or not.

    I just don't enjoy the vibe. I don't find enjoyment in getting totally drunk, waiting in long lines, dancing in sweaty and dirty clubs with creepers all over the place. Call me old fashioned but I prefer my bed!

    But at least they can dance On the other hand, how well they can dance is subjective and is open to interpretation.

    Their overspeed, jerky movements remind me of those videos you see of soldiers on parade in the early 1900s

    forgot i'm asking this to a bunch of people on TSR what do you guys do at freshers, then?
    Honestly I've been tired or ill so haven't bothered to buy a ticket plus I'd have to find someone to go with besides the one guy I met who seem a tad busy also.

    Mainly because I'm not into top 40 music, if I want to be in a hot room full of sweaty people I'd rather go to a gig to see a band I like got nothing against people who do like clubbing though

    For some reason I always get an awful headache when I try to stay longer than half an hour (which is odd as I can go to gigs just fine), which means that it's not really worth going. Additionally there are many activities that I prefer doing over clubbing, so I try to do them as much as possible instead
