My observations on today's singles' bar scene

I'm not really into bars as they have little to offer me.I rarely drink and I hate loud,noisy,smoky environments (I'm also a non smoker) and I have no tolerance for loud,obnoxious drunks.Occasionally I'll tolerate a bar if there's a band playing there I like or I'm there with someone else who actually enjoys these places and I'm dragged there.I went more back in the 80's when I was single and once I learned the stupid "game",I did pretty well with meeting women,although more often than not,I preffered meeting women in other places.That was back in the 80's and what was really fun about that decade was that for a short time,the health clubs and gyms were competing with meat market type bars as a meeting place for singles.That rocked!You met your prospective date in good light(as opposed to a dark club),unmade,at their worst (as opposed to having painted on fake beauty which can be cause for shock in the morning,think wolf syndrome)and sober(as opposed to being buzzed,when everyone looks better).In many ways I miss the '80's.

Like I said,I did OK then.Then I got married and 12 years later,divorced.Single again,yay..yeah right.Went to a few meat market type bars and what I found was scary.The music(I use that term very loosely) is about 100 times louder for one thing(we liked it loud in my day too,but I distinctly remember being able to have a conversation)and people now have copped this hostility vibe.It's as if every woman has taken an indifference/hostility bytch pill and every guy has taken an azzhole pill.In looking around at some of the city's singles hot spots,it was even hard to find people that even looked like they were having a good time.Have people become so bitter and jaded by past relationships,they look at every potential encounter with the opposite sex as a potential to be hurt or be hurt?I've noticed,too,that the gyms and health clubs are no longer possible places to meet dates,at least not like they were in the 80's.People at the gym now are either in their small workout "packs" or they're alone with headphones and into their own worlds.

I'm not whining or complaining as this nightmare is over for me.I'm married and I met my wife on the internet.In looking at today's singles' scene it's easy to see why many folks are choosing the internet as a place to meet potential partners.I really feel sorry for young folks in their 20's just starting this madness.Does anyone else see the same thing or is it just me,am I just out of touch?

Sheesh this is right out of the 70's dude
today's singles' bar scene

I would think most kids in their 20's would not NEED to meet people on dating sites...When I go to clubs the sign on the door sez MUST BE 21 TO ENTER
and you know when I get in there I see that those kids take that sign seriously not a 22yr. old in sight!

Hey LOKI, your pretty much right on target. Lets face it the "bar" scene is really not the ideal place to meet someone of quality anyway. Unless your looking for a drunk, then you may have found your own version of heaven.

The Internet. there's another JOKE! People misrepresenting themselves, with "creative" profiles. "A few extra Pounds" really means, bring a forklift if you want any chance to move that ass. Then there are all the weirdo's.

I also feel for the younger people today. there really isn't anywhere to foster a relationship. I use to recommend that my single friends take a college class, in something that they really like to do, and meet someone there, at least you would have something in common.

Then theres Church. Several people I know have met their SO in church, so again it comes down to what you want.

Like you I am a Non-Smoker/Non-drinker/No Drugs kind of guy. If I were single I have no idea beyong College and Church where I might go to meet someone.

Well for those who want to get lucky with a drunk woman,here's a guide to the drinks you should buy her...

Drinks Show Your Personality

Before you order a drink in public, you should read this! Seven New York City bartenders were asked if they could 'nail' a woman's personality based on what she drinks. Though interviewed separately, they concurred on almost all counts. The results:


Drink: Beer
Personality: Causal, low-maintenance; down to earth.
Your Approach: Challenge her to a game of pool.

Drink: Blender Drinks
Personality: Flaky, whiny, annoying; a pain in the ass.
Your Approach: Avoid her, unless you want to be her cabana boy.

Drink: Mixed Drinks
Personality: Older, more refined, high maintenance, has very picky taste; knows EXACTLY what she wants.
Your Approach: You won't have to approach her. If she's interested, she'll send YOU a drink.................

Drink: Wine (does not include White Zinfandel)
Personality: Conservative and classy; sophisticated yet giggles.
Your Approach: Tell her you love to travel and spend quiet evenings with friends.

Drink: White Zinfandel
Personality: Easy; thinks she is classy and sophisticated, actually, she has NO clue.
Your Approach: Make her feel smarter than she is...this should be an easy target.

Drink: Shots
Personality: Likes to hang with frat-boy pals and looking to get totally drunk... and naked.
Your Approach: Easiest hit in the joint. You have been blessed. Nothing to do but wait, however, be careful not to make her mad!

Drink: Tequila
No explanations required - everyone just KNOWS what happens there.

. .


THEN, there is the MALE addendum -- The deal with guys is, as always, very simple and clear cut:

Domestic Beer: He's poor and wants to get laid.

Imported Beer: He likes good beer and wants to get laid .

He is hoping that the wine will give him a sophisticated image to help him get laid.

Whiskey: He doesn't give a damn about anything but getting laid.

Tequila: He is thinking he has a chance with the toothless waitress.

White Zinfandel: He's gay

I enjoy Merlot (red wine) or Chivas Regal (12-year-old Scotch) or Grand Marnier (liqueur).

Bar scene isn't what it use to be! It could be that I'm wiser and older though!

I dunno,it didn't appeal to me when I was in my 20's.Even less so now.
