I have just started my third year at university, and I can’t believe how fast the last few years have gone, and that this is my final year at uni before I have to start working full time. Although I will be sad about leaving university I will be glad for so many other reasons too. I am a shy person, who suffers from anxiety and depression and the idea of being in a club freaks me out, big time. The idea of being around lots of people, who are pushing past, talking loud and getting far too close, just doesn’t make me feel okay.

 To be honest the idea of any night out, makes me feel uneasy, I would much rather spend the money on a quiet night in, with films and pizza or even on a nice meal than spend £20-30 on a night which I probably won’t remember much of in the morning and end up being sick (fun fun) now don’t get me wrong I have been to clubs a fair few times, but from the minute I enter the club, I can’t wait to leave again. In fact I spend the entire night thinking about bed, how much my feet hurt and how much I want some cheesy chips when I leave the club. I probably sound like the saddest person on the planet but I am not even bothered anymore. I much prefer to stay in, having a night in with friends or even on my own speaking to my friends online.

To me I always feel out of place too, the club is filled with pretty girls, in short tight dresses, with perfect hair and huge heels and I am there with a black down to the knee dress with a 2 inch pair of heels and smudged makeup half way through the night, but I have come to terms with the fact that is just me and that is just how I’ll always be. Don’t even get me started on the people in the clubs, you have drunk guys trying to grind on you, which to me makes me want to cry and scream at the same time, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS! I feel uncomfortable watching all of my friends make out with random people they’ve just met whilst you stand there, thinking of your boyfriend who is at home (probably with his PC, and food). Not everything about clubbing is bad, I do like dancing I think it’s amazing that at clubs, it’s okay to dance how you like and noone really pays attention and even if they do, half of the time you don’t even care. I hate clubbing, and that’s okay and this is my post of why.

    YES to this post! I used to like clubbing but I kind of grew out of it in my third year at uni – I hate it now and always thought I was a bit odd but I keep meeting more and more people who actually hate it too! It is definitely ok to prefer a night in!

    It always makes me happy when other people talk about this. Going to clubs always fills me with dread because I just don't find them fun. They're a bit boring really. I just go because everyone else seems to enjoy it. I'm looking forward to hopefully never going to a club again after uni

    I love this and agree completely. I always went clubbing because that's what everyone else was doing (silly of me I know) and I never enjoyed it. I find it too claustrophobic and hate that many of the men in there think they have the right to touch you. I stopped clubbing in my third year of uni and was a lot happier, absolutely nothing wrong with not liking it. Great post lovely!

    I often find that clubs set off my anxiety big time and I end up outside or hiding in the toilets having a panic attack 🙁 so I completely understand why you hate it too! I'd much rather go to a nice pub for a couple of drinks or have a cosy night in!

    (Also, I spend the whole time thinking about cheesy chips too!)

    I hated clubbing from the start. As a teen I never got into it and still today, I don't feel comfortable at gigs. I remember one time when a friend dragged me to come along a club and there was this guy who would dance wildly around without any respect towards other people around him. I got so annoyed as he also stomped on my feet a few times that I tapped him on the shoulder (he thought I wanted to chat him up) and said "excuse me, but you're not alone on the dance floor. There are other people too!" Should have seen his face! 🙂

    Can I say I agree with you 100%? I don't like clubbing or having a night out and I much prefer staying at home chilling and watching a movie! I never have fun on a night out so now I just don't do it anymore! Xx


  7. FrannySaysx says:

    Oh My Gosh, so it's not just me then! I agree with everything above! I hate clubs, I hate how I'm expected to dress up and feel totally uncomfortable, get exceedingly drunk in a hot sweaty environment when I could be in bed eating sweets and watching films 😂😂 x

    I hate the whole clubbing culture, I find it sleazy and expensive. The drinks cost a bomb, you get some random weirdo who won't leave you alone following you around all night and all you get is an empty pocket and banging headache. I went clubbing once and I HATED it! I hope you don't mind but I've linked a buzzfeed article I read a few weeks ago that you might like: http://www.buzzfeed.com/floperry/things-youll-understand-if-you-hate-clubbing#.ebD1Ykd1e .

    This post just speaks to me!!! I suffer with anxiety and a very bad fear of vomiting. I would never be able to go to a club because of the amount of people, sweat, vomit and physical bodily contact. I don't drink so I wouldn't really fit in. I really don't know what I am going to do when I have to go to uni, I guess I will have to struggle xx
