Not sure if this is the right forum, but it seemed the most appropriate.
Hey I'm an American in London now and I'm going to be here for nearly 2 months (just arrived several days ago). I've never been in an American bar before, being under 21. But I'm more than old enough to legally drink in the UK. Pub culture is big here and I gone 3 nights in a row.
BUT - it is so awkward for me. I'm not much of a dancer and I feel so uncomfortable and like I don't know what I'm doing and self-concious.
I've been going to the pubs with a bunch of girls from my school but they get picked up and whisked away by random British or other foreign guys soon after arrival.
What can I do to be more comfortable in pubs/bars and dancing at them? What can I do to stop the girls from immediately seeking out foreign guys? What can I do to meet foreign girls here? All the foreign girls seem to be with guys - many more guys than girls in these pubs it seems - and the foreign guys all jump at the chance to be with American girls.
I'd like to learn how to have a good time and meet/dance with girls comfortably.
