When Is It Time To Stop Going Clubbing?
After living in a handful of different LGBTQ neighborhoods in large cities, I’ve witnessed, you know, that guy. He’s of a particular age and is going out to the clubs on a daily basis. We've all seen him, said hello to him during our first visit on the scene, and continue to see him time and time again. I will commend him for his… energy.
Hear me out, I’m speaking as a working professional in his 20s; I can barely handle more than two nights a week of going out to the night clubs! The best advice I've ever received is that spending money at a bar each night is a bad investment. But, what about that guy. Does anyone even know his story? Should we look up to him for continuing the party? Should we harshly judge from the sidelines as we see him roaming around in speedos with a water bottle full of…who knows what?!
According to Curry’s PC World, they have discovered the age when it’s time so stop clubbing. Get ready for this…37 years old.
“37 years old is the magic number. Currys carried out a survey of 5,000 adults and found that 37 percent of participants went as far as saying that it’s “tragic” seeing those out at clubs who are 40 or older. The study also found that 31 years old is the age that many begin to prefer staying in than going out.”
I’m not certain exactly who was surveyed, but the adults gave their reasons for not wanting to binge drink nightly.
“The desire to not be hungover the next day is the main driving force behind staying in. Beyond hangover prevention, other reasons for the preference to stay in include not wanting to get dressed up, find a baby sitter, or get in a cab.”
I understand! First and foremost, hangovers = death. I can't be the only one who feels like they're collapsing the next morning after a long night. Honestly, I’d rather go out on a date than binge drink throughout my week. Otherwise, I’m pretty set with my social circle and prefer to watch Netflix and make a yummy new recipe with my incredible friends. Do people even make friends at bars nowadays or is it just an excuse to find a hook up? I honestly don’t believe I’ve met any of my current or past friends while out at a bar. Have you?
What age do you feel people should stop going to the clubs? Let me know!
