My buddy and i went out to a a busy road in oakland with lots of bars on it last night, and I got overwhelmed immediately.
I'm generally a positive person, but felt like I was out of my element and like I was working up hill. These were my thoughts. It's too crowded. Everyone is distracted. Bitch shields are up. Every girl has 2 guys with her. Drinks are too expensive. Covers are a waste of money.
How do you guys work with this when you go out on weekends? The whole scene feels like a scam. I've always been a day game guy and go to bars on weeknights when things are a bit more chill, but I haven't been happy with the selection as of late, and it feels like all the hot girls only go to bars and clubs on weekends... unless there is somewhere they go I don't know about
Dude.... they make bars and clubs so you can have FUN... Not end up in a psych ward. Just have FUN when you go out and start TALKING to people. Realize that you will probably NEVER see any of those people again.
