Five Rules To Clubbing With Your Significant Other
Back when I was doing the relationship thing, I actually enjoyed going to a club every now and then with my woman. Whether it would be just me and her or us and some other mixed company, a night out with the significant other was always good for me and her. Matter of fact, I would venture to say some of the best nights I ever had at a club was with a woman I was dating.
Thing is, there’s rules to clubbing with the significant other. If you’re going to do it, ere are five things to remember. Please feel free to add others in the comments section, just don’t say I forgot any. I don’t forget any, I just pick the ones I like the most. Moving on…
BE ON THE LIST AND DON’T WAIT IN LINE
All girls hate waiting in line. Whether they’re at the supermarket or the DMV, the only people I see complaining about the line is women. Men will complain too, but only if they have somewhere to be. The club especially is where women despise the line the most, possibly because it’s a class system at work. The lower class is in line waiting, the middle class is off to the side of the line talking their way out of waiting, and the upper class is being led straight through. At the very least, a man should be middle class when his woman is in tow. If he’s not he should find another club because the only thing worse than not getting into the club at all, is the wait in line to get in.
INTRODUCE THE SIGNIFICANT OTHER
Getting separated when partying with a significant other is inevitable. Also inevitable, a man approaching the female significant other. Now of course, she should tell the guy she’s with her boyfriend even if her boyfriend has went somewhere else, but sometimes the guy doesn’t believe her or doesn’t really much care. No need to worry, just remain calm and wait for the male significant other to return. Then, handle the introductions properly. A woman should not lead on the person who approached her, but remain friendly enough so that when her man does return, egos are not bruised and faces do not get bruised either.
ONLY ONE PERSON IS DRINKING, NEVER BOTH PEOPLE
It’s not so much drinking as it is getting wasted. Even if neither person is driving home at the end of the night, no couple should be getting drunk together in public spaces like the club. When it’s a night inside? Sure. Bottoms up! But in the club, has anyone ever seen the drunk couple staggering over one another arguing about dumb stuff? I have and it’s ugly. I would go so far as to say one of the new codes of chivalry should be for a man when going out with his woman should stay sober or at least drink lightly buzzed and let his woman get hammered. The last thing I ever want is a woman patting my back telling me, “Baby it’s going to be okay” all while I’m praying to the porcelain gods.
RESPECT EACH OTHER’S MUSICAL TASTES
I don’t care if Rihanna’s “Hard” is her favorite song of the moment, I’m not dancing to it. No, not even during Young Jeezy’s part. I don’t even know the words to Young Jeezy’s part so she should just hit the dance floor with her girls while I stand off to the side at the bar instead of trying to pull me out there with her. She doesn’t see me doing the same thing when Akinyele’s “Put It In Yo Mouth” comes on.
DANCE ONLY WITH EACH OTHER
Unless you two want to be that couple arguing in the bathroom area, I suppose you follow this rule and make no exceptions to it. As the old saying goes, “Dance with the ones who brought you.”
