A Question From an Englishman...

Hello everyone! It looks like most of the people on this site seem to be from America, and as I don't know any Americans, I thought it would be a good place to ask the following question:
I often read American books, and watch American films, and in these there always seem to be single women hanging around in bars. At some point in the story, a character walks into a bar, and 'picks up' a woman. This seems to happen in loads of the books/films I've come across. My question is: is this realistic? In America, do women often go into bars on their own, and get 'picked up'? Because in England, this never happens! I've been going into bars for around 12 years now, and I don't recall ever seeing a single woman in a bar on her own! Not once!
I would love to have the opportunity to just start chatting to a girl in a bar over a couple of drinks, but in England there is a set routine to nights out: in the pubs, the lads stay in groups, and so do the lasses - then at about midnight, everyone goes to a club, gets incredibly drunk, dances like idiots, and no one can really remember what happened! I don't like this system, because I like talking, & I'm not really a dancer. You just know you've done okay if, when you wake up, you have a mysterious 'phone number in your wallet - or if a girl is lying next to you for some reason!
So what's the score? In America, do women really go to bars and hang around on their own? (And if they do, when is the next flight?!?)

I would say it depends on how much she has had to drink.

In seriousness women do go to bars alone or with another group of women. As far as getting picked up yes i believe some do.

they are usually in a small group but they are looking to at the very least talk with men..........

Oh my gosh Val, let me know where, as I need to get some baaaad!

no! They come as a pair, or a group,and get trashed....that's about it.

Depending on the bar you go to depends on if they are by themselves or in a group. If they are by themself.... chances are they will pick you up if you wait to long. Also, women sometimes expose themselves and eat whipped cream from each others tits... (Yes I have witnessed this myself in person ) but those women are more likely to go home with each other then you. P.S. the more they drink the better you look. If you can get the hottest girl in there drunk enough.... she will go home with you. Caution however.... as they will not always inform you of the 7 foot tall 380 pound muscle man she has been dating, and that she is only trying to get back at him. Funny thing.... the guy is always pissed at the guy and not the female that started it. Its fun for everyone.... grab a plane and fly on over....LOL.

yes it does happen.being as i am basicly a loner i go to bars by myself when i go.not to pick up a man but to have a good time.

Well it sounds like I'll have to 'get my ass' to America as soon as possible - especially if that bit about exposure & whipped cream is true! I saw some bars like that in Amsterdam, & Copenhagen, but the ladies would be asked to leave if they carried on like that in England!
Over here, maybe because we're a bit more reserved, we generally have to get incredibly drunk in a club before we approach the opposite sex. So although I often meet women, I can hardly ever remember what they look like! (and often don't even remember meeting them at all...!)

Oh just admit it what us americans have known for years sailor... bits are mostly just bloody snobby, stuck up, and stuborn.... no I'm only kidding. I'm of scottish ancestry and I plan on visiting the UK soon. Sounds like I will have to loosen you guys up some when I get there. By the way.... why is it when British rock bands play... they sound American? (Pink Floyd not included.... you couldn't remove the Brit accent from Waters if you removed his windpipe!)
