In the days where I used to go to bars, I actually did not drink, and I suppose I was there for the atmosphere and the hopes of building a social circle after college. I felt uncomfortable as people were surprised that I don't drink: girls would ask me "You don't drink?", or random dudes would buy me a drink thinking I'm poor, or bartendresses would give me dirty looks because they knew they couldn't con tips out of me. It got boring being the only guy in my town going to bars alone (leaving alone as well, naturally) for the purpose of building a social network, instead of getting shitfaced.

Yes, I too have gone to bars and had people say, "why aren't you drinking?" It did feel uncomfortable being in that environment. The only reason I went to bars at all, was to try and meet some women.

Usually, I met NO women at all. Occassionally I got some phone numbers only to call them up a couple of days later, leave them a message and then most of the time they would never call me back. Bars and nightclubs are HORRIBLE places to try and meet women. In addition, you have all these "pickup artists" and "party animals" at bars and clubs.

Extroverts and party animals seem to do better in the social scene in America than do people like me who are more introverted. That's why I think moving to a more introverted country like Germany would be a good idea.

Here is a good video explaining why people get drunk on new years eve and why these people tend to be losers.

If partiers would stay in the U.S. that would be one thing, but too many of these asswipes travel to foreign countries so that they can party even harder. Too many tatooed, drunk, druggie assholes polluting third world countries, at least in Asia and Latin America.

Winston certainly likes to "party it up" when he goes overseas. :D

I agree with you on this Jamesbond. The overseas environment (particularly Europe or Latin America) seems like a better place to flourish in a be "true to yourself" and with no need to drink just to "open up" be social.

I showed the girl I talk to in Vietnam this video and asked her if college students have parties like that there.

She said "The video seems too morbid :( I don't like it :(" I told her I feel like an alien at such things.
