    Go clubbing by yourself. You don't need a "wingman" or any of that stuff
    Oh and I may have forgotten to mention that I am female. Would I be safe going on my own?

    Well as a female ...... it is advisable to think of personal safety. It may be safe to go clubbing alone.

    For my kind of clubbing it is definitely not all about getting ridiculously drunk!!! It's all about the MUSIC, dancing and singing to the lovely tunes as you can see in this video!!!!

    Isn't it a bit much to be travelling from Newcastle to London every fortnight? You must love the place then, eh? If you're being serious with your invitation, then I'll consider it

    I've traveled over to Holland once a few years back just to go clubbing on a weekend. But I guess my idea of clubbing may not be the same as everyone elses lol.

    Not really, I have friends and family there so always a reason to be there. I do have a special relationship with London plus no place is better for clubbing.

    Offer is there

    OP, as a girl, I suggest that you shouldn't go on your own!

    I've been clubbing with my boyfriend loads of times, and every time he leaves me for 5 - 10 minutes to go to the bar or toilets, I suddenly find myself being either hit on, touched and grinded against or danced with against my will by another man. I don't go to "seedy" clubs or anything like that - just the normal popular student places. This has happened in every club I've ever been in.

    I wasn't dressed particularly revealingly and I'm not very attractive.

    Another reason not to go on your own is that you need friends to dance with. People stay in groups of friends in clubs and dance together or interact while the're dancing. I think you would feel a bit silly and self conscious standing there on your own dancing. I'm not a shy person but I know I would.

    I'm sort of vaguely amused by the fact that there's a 16 year old on here who hasn't been clubbing because they're too young, and people being surprised that a 17 year old has been able to go clubbing.

    Man, times have changed, I used to frequently go clubbing when I was 16 and 17, as did pretty much everybody I knew. Bouncers didn't bat an eyelid.

    ahhh the good old days.

    god I feel old.

    OP - by all means go clubbing on your own if you want, it's a good way to meet people. Myself personally I'd have never dared when I was younger because of being too self-conscious about dancing on my own, but generally to tell you the truth if you have a few drinks it's probably likely that you'll end up talking to random people, and bobs your uncle, you're not alone any more.

    The problem with going with friends anyway is that you usually end up getting dragged to clubs that you don't really like. At least if you go on your own you can choose where you want to go.

    I'd go clubbing on my own now, but I like I said I wouldn't when I was younger. I'm 27 now though, I don't tend to give a toss what people think anymore really. It's funny, the older you get, the less bothered about other people's opinions you become.

    Well as a female ...... it is advisable to think of personal safety. It may be safe to go clubbing alone. I myself am male and 16 therefore I wouldn't know about clubbing as I am too young and know nothing about Female safety. Try these links and make what you will with them. :yy:

    The only place in the world worse than TSR to ask about clubbing would be a rohypnol manufacturers forums.

    95% of answers will fall into one of two categories:
    1) People who don't like clubbing (or club music, or socialising, or going out in public, or more than one of the preceeding) who will tell you not to bother.
    2) People who think the only purpose of clubbing is to get drunk and pull randoms (which admittedly is why most uni students go).
    Hahahahahahhahahahaha.

    Grown-up clubbing is about the music, so go find a genre of club music you like to listen to, and then go to a club night that plays it (either on your own, which is find for music-oriented clubbing, or convince one of your friends by getting them into the music first.
    The rohypnol comment made me laugh!
    I don't fit into either group; I have a serious partner who I live with and I go out clubbing either with him or with friends to relax, release stress and have fun. I'm 18.

    Does that mean I don't belong here? D;

    Are you iliterate or unable to understand the basic concept of linking to URLs. Obviously I am not giving advice. I am giving the OP links. The links are not there for kicks you know.

    Obviously the link is to somewhere where the OP can get proper advice

    Chilling in a bar with friends > Clubbing.

    I hate almost everything about clubbing, the only thing I enjoy is spending time with friends, I would much rather chill in a bar with them and be able to converse. Bar wins every time.
    This is so true. A bar or Pub is so much better than clubbing. Clubbing is BORING (except in decent nightclubs i.e expensive ones which keep out the riff raff). Being able to hear and actually speak to people is a massive bonus

    I haven't been clubbing in ages either and none of my friends are really into that scene, so wouldn't mind a partner in crime. My work colleague is 21 and has never been clubbing either, maybe we could take him too? lol

    Well not really since I come to London on quite a regular basis! Infact, I'm going to go see Armin Van Buuren in a month's time at the Brixton Academy. If it's someone I like then distance doesn't matter (within reason). For trance, I've been to Edinburgh, Birmingham, Nottingham, London, Utrecht (NL) and Stratford (Global Gathering).

    I live in S.E London also. I've never gone clubbing solo, but I'd hardly blink twice if I saw someone out on their own. I'm always making friends with strangers. It also depends on what kind of scene you're into, I suppose. I'm not really into dance. I'd stay away from the typical club scene, you know the Oceanas and Liquids, and dress safe/be smart. If worst comes to worst say you've lost your mates and ask to tag along.
