    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
    What if I don't like dancing?
    What if I don't like dancing with friends?
    What if the music isn't good? By my tastes the music in most clubs is terrible
    What if I don't like being up until the early hours of the morning?

    That to name just a few. For me personally it's a combination of the above and the fact there's nothing to gain. If I don't find it fun then there's absolutely no benefit to spending the money and going out. I'd much rather catch up with friends somewhere we can chat, somewhere I can hear them, doing something we enjoy, and so on.

    I personally hate it for the noise levels make it so damn uncomfortable and makes it hard to communicate..and the claustrophobic tendency of being crammed onto a platform or floor that is sticky and smelly. Not to mention the expense of drinks..namely bottled water. I'm aware of how old I sound but its not fun..and never has been. I'll keep to bars and pubs where noise levels are tolerable and people aren't all that bad. Dancing is optional and reasonable enough to get into without a top dollar to spend and queues to for getting in.

    Clubs are great, but the people in them are not. 1:30am onwards becomes a chore trying to fight off people with 0 concept of personal space, so I can see why people can get tired of that real quick

    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
    I dislike dancing, most people like drinking on a night out, I dislike the music and hate the loud noise. I prefer staying in, simple as.

    I'm just awkward. Awkward socially and on the dance floor. I don't mind a drink tho, just not too much. I hate loud music as well. If I have to listen to it for hours on end I think my ears will bleed and my heart will come out of my chest.

    forgot i'm asking this to a bunch of people on TSR what do you guys do at freshers, then?
    There is plenty of stuff to do at fresher's besides drinking and clubbing. I see you're not ignorant towards the fact that people don't go because of the bad taste of alcohol or religion but why are you unable to recognise that people can't go because they don't enjoy dancing? It's the same line of argument. Some people prefer to hear their friends and don't like being in a stuffy crowd full of sweaty and tipsy people. Not an unusual thing to find uncomfortable in my opinion. It's OK to club and it's OK not to club. No need to judge people over it because you will just get judgement back.

    I could also ask you why you don't like things that I like, like snooker, 90s wrestling or fisting.

    Joke aside, it is just a past-time that not everyone's going to enjoy. I used to love it when I was a bit younger, but I'm in my mid 20s now and I'm so over it. Most things get boring if you do them too much. Haven't been clubbing for about a year, don't ever plan on going again.

    I find it funny how some guys have no rhythm what so ever - totally out of sync with the beat/music.
