At wedding receptions, people, only those who are hooked up with someone have any chance of having a good time, especially when it comes to the dancing...
I don't mean to be inflammatory here HWK, but I've never had any such trouble at wedding receptions. has it occurred to the problem might be you? Maybe the way you're coming across to others or something? I don't know, never met you I'm just saying.

You are lucky and fortunate that it isn't a Federal Felony for singles to go to weddings, especially wedding receptions. You are lucky singles attending wedding receptions isn't even punishable by as much as 90 years to life in federal prison![/QUOTE]You should be lucky that people who mke such outlandish posts are not immediately committed to the casa de locos.

Very true.

Singles are good at strip joints, for obvious reasons.

It also needs to be made clear that, not only are wedding receptions totally inappropriate for singles, but wedding receptions are most heavily totally inappropriate especially for single guys. Especially in the northern USA (especially within the frost belt region, in any of the top 10 drunkest states, and especially in known anti-social states such as Illinois and Massachusetts), single guys who wear glasses, who have any kind of disability (physical, mental, or developmental), and who are on the shy side, should never attend any wedding reception at all; even if the guy was directly invited to the reception.

Wedding receptions are great for singles. At least you know that the people there are somehow linked to people you know. If you end up hooking up with someone (while chit-faced drunk) you can find out more about them through the grapevine in case you want to see them again.

In the deep south (Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Arizona, Hawaii, etc), wedding receptions may be not-quite-taboo for singles. But farther north, wedding receptions are no place for singles. Even people linked to people you know can and will often be heavily snobby and discriminatory towards you, especially in the middle and northern states, and especially in the least sociable states like Illinois and reportedly also Massachusetts.

In many ways, in fact, going to a wedding reception as a single person, especially as a single guy, is way, far worse than going to a nightclub by yourself. There may be no bouncers at wedding receptions to eject people who misbehave, but in fact, that actually makes it all the more brutal. At nightclubs, if a guy asks a woman if she would like to dance with him, the guy simply gets ejected from the nightclub. But at a wedding reception, if a guy asks a woman if she would like to dance with him, far more often than getting a "No!" answer from her, he gets a smash in the nose by that woman's partner, or whoever she is with, which all too often erupts into a huge fight that can easily be brutal enough to send multiple guests (including the guy who asked the lady if she would like to dance with him) directly to the emergency room. Literally, he could ask someone if she would like to dance, and instead of getting a dance with her, he'd get a fractured skull, a busted nose, and about 900 stitches.

I've got two three word phrases and/or suggestions for a guy with as many obviously glaring problems with women as you appear to have with them: "Mail-order bride", or "Rent-A-Date!" Let us all know how those work out for you, will ya, bud?
