For the few among you who either have been clubbing before, or actively enjoy clubbing, what do you prefer? Do you, as a guy/girl prefer to stick with groups of your own gender, or do you prefer to go in mixed groups?
As a guy, we have a saying, "Don't bring sand to the beach." Iow, bringing chicks in unnecessary when the purpose of being at the club is to pick up chicks. However, having chick friends with you can increase your chances of approaching/being approached by some women that play the competitive game. It can make you look like more of a hot item. Aside from that, i prefer to go with groups of dudes.
Clubbing for women means standing at any place in the club and WAITING for a decent guy to approach them. For guys (at least in my experience), we actually have to HUNT/SEEK our targets. That's the entire game. Men are the hunters, women are the hunted. Thus, it's our prerogative to move all around the club from wall to wall, literally scoping out our "territory". Then we home in on select prey and have at it. Women don't have to do all that. Thus, in a mixed group, I think it's more difficult to stay together. Add to that a group of guys will usually serve as a greater boost to overall mood and confidence, keeping you in that hunter state of mind since you are in a group of other "hunters". It's an overall better dynamic.
Women, however, do benefit from having a guy around, at the expense of the guy. Guys can ward off creepers and offer protection. However, a minority of guys in a mainly female group will find themselves with the short end of the stick unless they branch out to do their own thing in the club.
What do you guys think? I need a better way of making use of mixed groups.
