- What are your social anxieties…?
Yeah, I do feel self-conscious while doing it, and clumsy, and ridiculous. Which are not feelings I enjoy. How would you suggest I go about getting over it ?
I dunno – just stop worrying about what other people think?
now whenever I take to the dancefloor it’s like Moses parting the Red Sea as everyone stands back to watch me make a c0ck of myself.

See, that’s exactly the problem I have with dancing. You want to dance ? that’s absolutely fine. I don’t, so please leave me alone, I’m the least miserable person you could ever hope to meet but I don’t want to pretend to enjoy dancing and that doesn’t give you the right to make me look stupid and **** up my evening.
Exactly. It’s like friggin jehovah’s witness with rhythm. Just because John Travolta is your lord and master, you don’t need to come over and try and convert me.Posted 4 years agogrumMember
Easier said than done I guess.

I reckon I’m shit at dancing too, but I don’t care because it’s fun. Once you get used to the idea that you probably look like a bit of a tool quite a lot of the time, but it doesn’t really matter, life becomes a lot more fun.Posted 4 years agoIanMunroMember

Like Grum I do enjoy it and think it is a fun thing to do so I have no qualms about dancing. If someone wants to laugh then excellent as that is two of us having fun.
That said i dont like being dragged up to dance – when I want to dance I will dance thankscbmotorsportMember

coupled with the assumption that because you’re not dancing there’s something wrong with you.
Of course not everyone has to dance all the time, and I won’t dance to music that doesn’t make me want to, or if I’m not in the mood, or the atmosphere doesn’t feel right – but having a blanket rule of no dancing ever just means you’re a bit of a miserable bugger IMO.
If they left me alone, happily swigging my beer and people watching I’d be fine. It’s the constant ccoming up to you and trying to get you to dance, or the beckoning at you from the dancefloor that makes the whole thing so damn uncomfortable
They’re all having fun, they can see you’re having a shit time being a miserable bugger, and they want you to come and have fun with them instead. The bastards.
Not sure there’s anything wrong with me, just don’t particulalry like dancing.
You’re also assuming that I never dance. I do sometimes, rarely but sometimes.
That is all.Posted 4 years agosweepyMember
I don’t mind bill splitting as long as everyone is in the same ballpark, but if anyone doesn’t want to thats fine as long as they do the maths. If its obvious that someone is paying more than they should i’ll raise it on their behalf. I’d hate anyone to feel anxious or uncomfortable because they were being forced outside their budget.Posted 4 years ago

Leaving my flies undone.
Once, in a garden center at age 15, I stood in the middle of the greenhouse staring into space. A cute girl comes up [Sat. job I guess] and opens her mouth to start talking to me. As she’s doing this she looks down and a look of consternation crosses her face – she turn around and walks away.
Turns out, that if you stand with your hands in your pockets in a warm room with no breeze, it’s impossible to notice that both your jeans and boxxer flies are open due to the humidity etc. 😆
EDIT – oh and rounds. It’s stupid – why does everyone need to buy drinks at the same time? Why does, for example the guy who doesn’t drink much has to buy rounds for those that do? What if some asshat [me] is very keen on, for example Amaretto or Ouzo and wants doubles – usually costing far more that a pint of
Buy your own drinks whenever you want. Perhaps buy the person you came with one. Why complicate matters?Posted 4 years ago
