We are totally aware of the fact that the amount of crazy stuff you used to consider while at a party during your early 20s drops down significantly while down the road of your late 30s, early 40s. To get you back in track, we have put together five party-tips you should totally consider. So let’s start right where you left your party animal, shall we?
DO #1: BE NICE TO THE PEOPLE SITTING NEXT TO YOU
The pretty fit/vegan/perfect looking girl sitting next to you, just got engaged yesterday. We get it. It’s annoying, however, DO smile back and DO ask her about her wedding plans. She’s probably going to tell you anyway, so make sure you ask before this happens. You will be the “only cool guest” who asked her first and forced everybody else sitting on your table, to swallow a piece of raw meat while listening to her plans. That’s your job done for the night, you can now head to the bar like the boss you are.
DO #2: MAKE SURE YOU FORGET COMMITTAL COMMENTS
And by this we mean, making sure you DO have a shot of plain alcohol at your fingertips to down it every time someone starts speaking about the following subjects: School Fees, mortgages, invoices and derivatives. Trust us, they will be easier to handle after that plain shot. Action, reaction my dear.
DO # 3: CONGA = GODDESS
If the person you are trying to establish a very random conversation with has yawned more than 2 times, you are in trouble. We would strongly suggest you, start a conga. Everybody will love you, respect you and remember you forever. Being the leader of a conga at a wedding party is probably as respectable as going on a sugar-free diet for at least a whole good week.
DO #4: LEAVE COMPLAINS ASIDE
There is probably nothing more boring than someone who complains about everything. Unless you do it with style and make people laugh of course. However, these species (hilarious complainers) are hard to find, so we would suggest to keep on reading. Forget the fact that the closest toilet is 10 blocks away from the room you are at or that you are sitting next to the oldest guest of the salon. Try to keep this info to yourself and be cool about it. DON’T complain about unnecessary stuff.
DO #5: HANG OUT WITH THE “COOL” CHAPS
Go ahead and try introducing yourself while you “casually” happen to be at the same spot at the same time. These guys will automatically launch you into the cool gang, and this will give you a free ticket into the NON-boring band of the party.
