The 8 Reasons Every Girl Should Ditch Their Boyfriend For A Night Out Every Once In A While
When a girl falls in love she loses her ability to dance, well it’s either that, or her ability to have fun.
The moment a Facebook status changes to “In A Relationship” I instantly assume that they have broken up with their social life and replaced it with a man. The world understands that once you have a boyfriend you have to free up some time to actually see him. That being said just because you’re in a long term relationship with the potential love of your life, it doesn’t mean you need to be in a long term relationship with your sofa as well.
A boyfriend is meant to be an addition not a replacement to your current life. Yet the more instagram posts on my timeline with the hashtag #MeAndTheBae, the shorter my Saturday night text list seems to get.
If of course you never really liked clubbing anyway and your idea of an amazing Saturday night was X Factor and donuts, then congratulations on finally finding an amazing excuse to stay at home. Feel free to hang up your Louboutin’s and replace them with slippers. You can stop reading now.
If you actually enjoy going out and have stopped because;
A) Your boyfriend doesn’t want you going clubbing
B) You think that girls in relationships shouldn’t be seen out drinking in short dresses.
I’m here to remind you what fun looks like, because believe it or not, girls in relationships should go clubbing and here’s why:
1. Having to wear tight dressed will mean you stick to your diet
I love a Friday night at home with a Domino’s hotdog crust pizza as much as the next girl. That being said, if all weekend activities involve: baggy clothes, food and films then when you do eventually have a reason to wear a dress, you won’t fit into it.
Girls who go out to fancy places have to make a conscious effort to fit into their little black dresses. This is where the ‘pre-club’ diet comes in (for those of you who aren’t familiar with it, it involves not eating everything in sight two whole days prior to the weekend).
2. Your high heels are begging for a night out
Most girls probably have at least one pair of fabulous ‘come get me shoes’, or in my case 37. Before you had a man to show love to, those shoes were the main object of your desire. Now they only get a night out if your lover decides to leave his loyalty card at home and take you to the kind of restaurant where you don’t have to walk up to the counter to order.
Well, every night your shoes stay locked away at home, they die a little inside. Plus what happened to “I know they’re expensive but I’m going to wear them alllll the time”? Girl put them on and go get your paycheque’s worth.
3. Dancing is a work out!
Probably a stress reliever too. So really going out is like a gym session and a counselling session crammed into one. Not to mention that alcohol is a relaxant, so a night out really could do you a world of unending good. Trust me, I’m not a certified GP but I’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy for 6 years and that’s almost the same thing.
4. Your friends are beginning to think you’re a kill joy
So many girls say “what does it matter to them if I go clubbing or not” and I suppose it doesn’t.But remember when you spend two years replying “no thanks, I hate clubbing” every time they ask you out, your friends might be reluctant to invite you with them when you’ve broken up with your man and suddenly “need a really good night out!”
5. Y.O.L.O (you have no idea how much I cringed writing that)
One day, I promise you, you won’t be able to survive a full night at Shaka Zulu. Despite best intentions not to turn into your mum, you will at some point in your life, walk into a club and say “God it’s so loud in here I can barely here myself think”.
My advice, enjoy your youth whilst you still can
6. It won’t kill your boyfriend to hear the word “no”
I have friends who won’t go clubbing because their boyfriends don’t want them to. Ironic since a few of them met in a club, but who am I to argue with misplaced male logic?
If you have the kind of boyfriend who wants to break up with you, because you want a night out with your friends, then just hope you don’t marry this one, because I promise you, you’d have a long and secluded life ahead.
When it comes to dating, you don’t have to agree with each other all the time, everyone knows that “opposites attract” but what they don’t tell you is that opposites that attract, are probably going to disagree a lot of them time.
7. It’s fun to look sexy
As adorable we all look in comfy clothes, sometimes a girls just got to put something skin tight on and show the world that she’s still got it.
8. Your Boyfriend Will Probably Benefit Too With Drunken Sexy Time
The best part of going out when you’re in a relationship is not having to worry about hooking up with a hot man. You already have one waiting for you and the more cocktails you drink the more he will reap the benefits (nudge nudge, wink wink).
