I'm not a clubber. And everyone who really knows me knows this. It's not that I think something is wrong with going to the club, if that's your thing, but I've never been the type of person who club hopped or that made sure I was at whatever hot party was "jumping off". Personally, I've always felt that it was kind of boring because I'm not a big drinker and I don't really like sweaty guys gyrating on me, so when I'm with people who want to go I sit on the wall all night. Oh...and I don't like crowds, so that thing that some girls do where they kind of dance in a tight circle in the middle of the dance floor with hundreds of people around them, yeah, I don't like that either. I need to breathe.
But I can understand why people like the club scene. Everyone is there. If I want to meet people in my age group, then the club is definitely the place to go. But I've just come to the point in my life where I just don't want to put myself through things that I know I'm not going to enjoy, even if it means that people may see me as antisocial. Actually I am a very social person. I like being around people, just in a more intimate setting like a movie or a nice restaurant or something...somewhere that I won't have my butt slapped as I try to manuver through a crowd of sweatin', sexin' people. And yes that really happened to me. And it hurt...he hit me as hard as my mama used to when she would whip me when I was little. So that meant you liked me? What do you do to girls you don't like?
I would like to find some place that I could go where I could meet people though. That's what's so frustrating about being in this minority...it's hard to find people who feel the same way you do. Or atleast, it's hard to find people who will admit that they feel the same way you do. To be honest I think that a lot of people go to the club on a regular basis who really don't want to. They just go to fit in.
I think that I would enjoy a jazz club or a neo soul club, if that exists. Something that's more laid back. I like going to things like balls or caberets as well...anything where I get to dress up. I love to dress up.
This is a topic that I'm sure I'll revisit again. It's something that's bothered me ever since high school. There's got to be other ways to be social and I am finding them.
