Are you a man looking to have a night out on the town? If you and the boys will be heading to a local nightclub, you're probably looking to kick back and have a few drinks and maybe try your luck out on the dance floor. To that end, here are some tips to keep in mind as a guy heading out to the local bar or nightclub lounge.
Your Appearance Matters
When you think of people going all out with their dress for a Friday night at the local nightclub, let's be honest, you're probably picturing a woman spending three hours picking out an outfit and doing her hair. But just because you're a man shouldn't mean that you can get away with just throwing on jeans and a t-shirt and calling it a day.
Your appearance matters for a couple of reasons. First, the nightclub you are going to might have a dress code, so check that first. But second, you should be willing to put at least a little effort into your looks if you want to attract the opposite sex. Wear something that boosts your confidence, and take some time to comb your hair and splash on some cologne. You'll feel better about yourself and your chances once you start mingling with others.
Have a Few Drinks But Don't Get Sloppy
There's sometimes a fine line between a fun drinker and a sloppy drunk. Guess which one women are going to be more attracted to? Pounding back seven beers or five whiskey shots might impress your own crew, but it's unlikely the young lady on the dance floor is going to enjoy having her toes stepped on as you stumble about. Learn what your tolerance level is and don't be afraid to cut yourself off as needed. If you feel pressure to keep up with the boys, consider just holding onto an empty can of beer. As long as you are holding something, most people won't even notice you aren't constantly drinking it.
Most people expect women to be able to dance better than men, and there's nothing wrong with that. But plenty of women will actually respect a man more if he shows he's willing to go out there and at least try. Being willing to at least sway back and forth shows you are confident and not afraid to go for it.
Put a little effort into your appearance, cut off the alcohol after a certain point, and be willing to have a little fun on the dance floor if you want to improve your chances as a guy at the local nightclub.
