10 Signs that You're Too Old for the Club / Bar Scene

In this day and age with society emphasizing youth and vitality with the constant stream of commercials advertising for anti-aging serums and sexual dysfunction with Viagra, Cialis, and other drugs used for treating ED (erectile dysfunction). Yet there’s this growing trend of people in their late 20s and early 30s partying like they did when they were freshman in college when by the time many get to their late 20s and early 30s they’ve usually outgrown the immature behavior. What surprises many is that some people have a hard time letting that lifestyle go and start doing age-appropriate things. Age-appropriate things like hanging out with your friends doing something other than drinking all night long. Try going to functions where people are not overdoing it on the alcohol. By late 20s and early 30s the party girls are looking a bit on tired side because so many 20 something are looking mid 30s from all the hard living they’ve done from 19 to 28. The alcohol begins to age some people because if you look at the faces of some mid and late 20 something they look like they’re well into their 30s with fine lines and even beer guts(on males). This is due in part to the fact that alcohol can deplete your body of nutrients like calcium, potassium, and iron and this is serious because these three nutrients are vital for bone, heart, and cell development. Plus not to mention it’s not cool to have permanent liver damage at 40 and 50 years old since cirrhosis can set in as early as your late 20s, but the damage isn’t obvious until well into your 40s and 50s. It has gotten pretty sad that we find frat and sorority parties to be cool well after leaving college and still think that we can live it up still when it doesn’t look attractive anymore and most folks by the time they’re in their late 20s and well into their 30s are settling down in serious relationships and/or getting married and starting families. Here are 10 signs that you are getting too old for the college party scene:

1. You are 28, 29, and 30 years old and still think it’s cool to drink booze out of pizza parlor pitchers the way you did as freshman.


2. You still involve yourself with party girls who have yet to retire the stupid b*tch mentality and are looking worn out and thinking they still look cute when the alcohol wore them down to where cute is past tense.


3. You treat homecoming at your frat or sorority like an all night drinking binge.


4. Your attitude changes drastically when you resume old habits again and it affects your social life.


5. You’ll choose hanging with your drinking buddies over hanging with someone who’s grown up and matured.


6. You post old photos of yourself drinking and with friends standing over a clutter of beer bottles, cans, and empty kegs on your personal homepage for social networking websites like MySpace, Xanga, Facebook, and others and putting captions about this was how you used to roll showing you binge drinking. Not only do you look foolish you’re also telling the world you have a drinking problem.


7. You go road tripping with past drinking and frat buddies when 19-21 year olds do that.


8.You’re ignoring people who have your best interest and don’t bring your standards down.


9. You try to compensate with new buddies when friends begin to stop hanging around when they get into serious relationships and/or getting married.


10. You have serious issues with letting go of immature behavior and stepping into the life of an age-appropriate adult. It’s these ten things that make you really realize when you’re getting too old to be bar and club hopping and attending frat and sorority parties and that’s the time to really re-examine your priorities. At some point we all have to grow up and start assuming adult level responsibilities, but it also affects the dating world because people start playing childish games with others as well and that’s what makes it frustrating for many when they feel a connection, but that person or individuals have a hard time knowing when to say good bye to the high school senior and college freshman behavior and start acting like their age. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to really see 20 and 30 something year old people acting like they are still in high school when many are married with kids or single parents raising kids. There’s that thing that once you graduate college you leave all the wild and reckless things you did behind and begin to grow and mature into real adult level roles and responsibilities. It’s something to think about if a few of you out there are looking to be serious about someone and you’re not going to find it with past party girls because once you’re in that role it never goes away and usually those types of girls don’t grow up and think that it’s still a party if you’re around.


Part of growing up is to begin severing ties with people who you have recognized that don’t respect you or the changes in your life. When you stop partying and living recklessly you’ll see how fast your circle of friends begins to change. When you eliminate people who don’t have your best interest and start surrounding yourself with those who have your best interest that’s when you recognize that you are maturing into a different person who has grown up. College is the time you learn to grow and mature, but once you graduate it’s time to leave the immature mentality behind since it’s not attractive for people in their late 20s and 30s to be going to frat parties and acting crazy and thinking it’s still cool when it’s not cute after 28 years old. A lot of fraternities and sororities don’t seem to have a clue as to what their organizations stand for and what makes it bad is past members who reflect back on their own experience in being wild and reckless like it’s some kind of rite of passage when in fact it just tells the next generation that acting like this will make you grow up when some of the actions can be life threatening since binge drinking kills thousands of college students each year and has increased in the last 15-20 years.


The current generation picked up on these bad habits by networking with past alumni and watching movies and television shows that feature frats and sororities acting wild and drinking excessively. Growing up isn’t easy for anyone to do, but there’s also that time in your life to really think about how it doesn’t really look appropriate for older people to be acting like high school age kids and that it’s time to really look at whether you should still continue hanging around people who seem to not have their acts together and who don’t respect a person when their lives change from being married, divorced, having children, changing jobs, and going back to school. College was a fun time, but when you’re hitting 30 and well into your 30s it’s time to hang it up and retire the club and bar behavior.
