I don't really seem to understan British people. Seriously. Most of the people who ask how to socialise get the answer that they should go to bars and pubs and be nice to people. Is that the British way of socialising? Well, that seems like bull**** to me. Being nice to people? What's the point? To get together and then tell them to **** off? What's the point of having friends you have met at the pub/bar and are with you just because they want to have a drinking mate. **** them. Why do they give such advice? They don't really need that kind of temporary solution of the problem.

I wish being nice to people wasn't the way to socialise, but unless you meet the right kind of people, it's unfortunately so.

Oh, yeah. It is basically telling someone to lick the person's ass in order to be "friends". But I guess just don't understand the British culture and people like it that way. And also, trying to be someone who they are simply not. If someone isn't usually nice to people, he/she doesn't need to be in order to be friends with them.

There are many non-drinking events that are being organised in my country. And if you want to meet someone, you can just start talking with a stranger on the street. I mean that doesn't mean that you can't do that in Britain, but from I read here, most of the people like to socialise only in pubs and bars.

Well i agree with you too. I dislike the British drink culture as i dont drink much myself. Wobbling around in a drunken haze is hardly the best way to meet someone especially if seeking a relationship.

What is your country?

I don't want to say that I live in country where people don't drink. But I am sure when I ask someone how to socialise, they won't tell me to go to a club and drink until I get totally smashed and I am not able to walk.

Oh, and are most British people's social lives based on drinking alcohol(Just a little generalization, I know)?

No you are mostly right about done of the drinking culture, before drinking, smoking used to be the way people met. I think something to consider though is british pride in tends to sport ect.
Plus bars and pubs tend to have heating, TV, some food among other things, so it's a convenience to watch sport there and with the british apparently if you see someone enough someone starts talking but mostly british keep to themselves I guess...

My social life is not based on drinking,pubs or clubs. My alcohol intake usually amounts to no more than a couple of glasses of wine with a meal each week. Unfortunately for many Brits, especially younger ones, it has become the norm to drink alcohol often to excess and it is now so ingrained in the culture that they cannot think of life without it.

What amuses me the most is that they go to the gym, too. It's like saying: "I ****ed up my body the last night with drinking too much alcohol, but let's try to fix it in the gym, I know it's not going to happen, but why not?"

You need to adapt to the mentality:rolleyes: dem brits love to drink yeah. Once you live in their country for 16 years like I did, you get used to culture, admit the stereotypes are true and... Realise you have some really nice brits around. You also need to travel to different countries and you'll notice just how stuck up and arrogant some other people can be. Ze french for instance.
