    I want to know if there is any truth to this article. I don't frequent these bars (that would explain a lot ;D), but I am shocked :eek:

    First problem: There are no gentlemen here.

    Actually, IJAG, After I posted this, I realized that. ;D I am waiting for that one guy to say, "I am most certainly a gentleman".....then I want to see his defence of the argument ::)

    What the story doesn't say is if the grinding is just random, or if it happens while you're dancing.

    I've grinded in the process of dancing, but it's not like I'd walk up to a random woman and start rubbing my junk into hers.

    Just give me a second to wipe away the tears (that article was FUCKING hilarious). Now onto the serious side. Does that sort of thing happen in college-type atmospheres? Of course, but then again, this may be a much bigger surprise to others than it is to me as I am still in school (grad school mind you) and still live in a college town. I'm not necessarily condoning it, I'm just saying that it does indeed happen.

    P.S. Second funniest part of that article: #1 female preferred method for men initiating contact: buying them a drink

    Probably true. However, when I was single I tried my best to impersonate one when attempting to meet women. Memory fades in middle age and after 13 years with one woman, but I do not recall such over-the-top behavior anywhere I went, least of all by me. Pelvis-to-pelvis grinding at the bar? Why, there likely would have been no reason after that to ask, "Your place or mine?"

    I'd like to say that I'm pretty close to a gentleman, despite my Polish background. I will say this, though: I have enough common sense to realize that I have absolutely no business on the dance floor, therefore, I'd never just start bumping and grinding with some random woman from behind. I mean, what if she turns around and looks like this:


    Just buying a pretty lady a drink and saying hello is good enough for me.

    Gawd, that is a hideous visage.

    That said, I'll be the first to say I'm a perfect gentleman. :)

    Why I'd like to think of myself as a gentleman, and I don't often frequent those bars either.
