From the outside world, party animals are all the same; they all like to drink, dance and stay up late. However, for people who actually party, we realize that there are more types of partyphiles than most people think. Some are good to be with, some, one should just stay away from. Unfortunately, when you are drunk and are too familiar with the faces in a bar, you forget that some of them may not be good for you. Here’s a simple reminder on whom you could meet at a bar.
Observer: Observers usually come, and act, in groups. When inside a bar, they just sit back, take a couple of sips, and then observe and gossip about other partyphiles. This is all they do for the night. They just talk, talk, talk, and sometimes scream over the music, just to share the latest gossip and to diss the fashion disaster that just walk past them
Camel: These are partyphiles who go to bars for the sole purpose of drinking. They do not care to dress up, they do not even dance. They just stand by their table, or lean against the bar the whole night, gulping down incredible amounts of booze. They have been drinking so long that they know when to stop, so they are pretty safe to party with…IF you are comfortable playing second fiddle to alcohol.
Queen Bee: the girl every guy has a crush on. She is nice, pretty, and witty, and she loves to drink and party. When she steps inside a club, all eyes are on her, and she knows it. Don’t hate her, it’s not her fault she’s beautiful.
The Posse: The Queen Bee’s followers. The group of girls who are always with the Queen bee but never get the same attention as she does. There is also a posse for the DJ, for the bar owner, and the top Shark.
Songbirds: People who dance with the music with real intent of singing along with it. They do not enjoy house music that do not have vocals or aren’t as popular. They prefer House mixes of pop songs that they could sing to. While dancing, they even close their eyes and sing along. This doesn’t make them bad people; it just makes them really irritating.
Wallflower: You know who they are: people who just sit in one corner; drink very little; never stand up to dance, and always take trips to the bathroom. They are too shy to enjoy the party. Sad.
Networker: A person who goes to parties to make people feel comfortable with them, and then they proceed to sell them stuff. They go to parties to gain connections for their business. These people usually seem fun and fabulous, but they are very deceitful.
Solo-Pilot: The loner. He or she goes to a bar to look for new friends. They are extra-friendly and even offer to buy you drinks. Unfortunately, your new found friendship ends quickly. The reason why he or she is always on the prowl for his or her new best friend is because s/he can’t keep a stable friendship.
Dirties: Also known as “Dirty Old Men”, these old guys are exactly like Sharks. The only difference is that they are older, usually heavier, richer, and have more power. Trust me, they do not look cute. If you do not want to look like you are partying with you Papa, leave your friendly neighborhood Dirty at home.
Miners: Also known as Gold Diggers, these girls love Dirties because they are the easiest target. They go to a bar to look for the next old man to get money from. They may act innocent, but these girls know how to play the money game.
Have you found yourself fitting into one of these stereotypes? Be honest, don’t deny who you really are. None of these stereotypes are bad, they just happen to be the reality. Remember: there are stereotypes because too many people do the same thing.
