    I also need to point out that, in many regions of America, a man asking a woman to dance is the surest and quickest way for him to get kicked out of a nightclub. Basically, in much of America, an innocent "Would you like to dance with me?" asked by a man to a woman at a nightclub is very normally followed closely by a "Okay, you're gonna have to leave!" statement to the man by club security. Those regions especially include the Midwest and Northeast regions (including Illinois, Massachusetts, most of New York, and others) and many other areas of the country. There are even a few areas of the country where even something as serious as jail can not be ruled out for the guy who asks a woman to dance with him at a night club.

    Ummm, unless said "invitation" is accompanied by physically grabbing, I sincerely doubt that people actually get thrown in jail for asking to dance.

    agree...I mean, if there is only a jukebox, maybe...but, still a stretch

    If by "man" you mean 60 year-old convicted pedophile, and by "woman" you mean 12 year-old schoolgirl, and by "nightclub" you mean high school, and by "dance" you mean "<fill in the blank>", then yes, I would say that statement has a ring of truth to it. Otherwise ... not.

    Hi batman, seem that your knowledge of nightclubs rather is superficial. And what´s labelled as a nightclub in most cases actually isn´t one. And from your experience I also draw the conclusions that you should be glad simply being asked to leave.....

    I've been to clubs where you have to be very careful about asking a woman to dance. However, typically these places that have a postage-stamp sized "dance floor" which sees a lot more groping than dancing. If you actually try to dance on it, people look at you funny. The fix is simple: don't waste your time in those places.

    dancelvr Well-Known Member "dance" is a code word for something a tad bit more *ahem* involved.

    12 year old schoolgirls are normally not allowed at public nightclubs. In fact, the extreme vast majority of American nightclubs only cater to people who are 21+ years old. And by nightclub, I mean, nightclub, as in nightlife, 18+ or 21+, and public use.

    Even without physical grabbing, there is a possibility of jail in certain parts of America for guys who ask ladies if they would like to dance with him. American women generally do not like being asked if they would like to dance by a guy she does not know. I also need to point out that America is a heavily Feminist nation, which means when something goes wrong between people that attracts the attention of the authorities (club security, local police, and such), the authorities will only listen to the woman's side of the story and nobody else! The man's voice has been all but snuffed out by heavy Feminism.

    batman said "12 year old schoolgirls are normally not allowed at public nightclubs"

    There were a number of "and"s in the post you responded to. Perhaps you should take your irony supplements.

    batman said "there is a possibility of jail in certain parts of America for guys who ask ladies if they would like to dance with him"

    Can you cite examples, provide sources?

    I would also like sources. I have never, ever heard of this happening. Like, ever.

    Maybe he meant if the lady would like to dance for him in the back room.

    I think that's the relevant part, if someones way of asking a woman to dance attracts the attention of authorities then there are other things going on than a simple asking to dance. Some social skills are required as well to pick up on when it would be really inappropriate to ask someone

    I, like all the others, are baffled by your claims. I have never heard of this happening. I've never seen this happen. I've never known any men or women that have experienced this. And I (used to) club ALOT. I have been asked to dance by strangers of all sorts, cute, ugly, old, young, wanting a dance, wanting something more than a dance, etc. Not one time has any of that resulted in anyone being escorted out by security, much less any actual police involvment.

    On very rare occasions, I have seen men not taking "no thanks" for an answer, or men fighting over a woman, or a boyfriend/girlfriend argument that got out of hand, and I've seen security or the authorities be called in to de-escalate the situation. But a simple "would you like to dance" being followed immediately by "OMG!! Call security now!, this guy is practically forcing himself on me!!"....just no.

    Remind me not to move to the areas mentioned by Batman, because in reality, night clubs are very often the only places a guy past college age has any realistic chance whatsoever of meeting attractive, potentially available women of dateable age.
    That's just the cold, hard truth, as the great American philosopher Toby Keith so wisely stated.
    While it is true that some night clubs have somewhat odd - and often, shall we say, flexible - rules (the 'dress code') being my personal favorite...), my guess would be that The Dark Knight either REALLY wasn't her type (= too short/fug/old/poor) and she's the high T type, or that he happened to hit on the wrong girl, meaning a girl the owner/manager/DJ/band guy/head bouncer had staked a claim on.
    Both of those scenarios might possibly get security involved.
