We’ve all had to tell ourselves lies to get our asses out of the house and to the club... and we’ve all been that bitch at the end of the night, puking out of a cab window, while simultaneously screaming, “NEVER AGAIN!”
But there is always an “again,” isn’t there?
The club. Such a strange place, no? It’s like being inside of a giant disco ball, surrounded by girls in tight dresses who are too young to be there and sweaty dudes in jeans and button-ups who are definitely too old to be there.
Everyone is inundated with cheap, watered-down vodka and really terrible top-40s jams are pumping through the speakers, making it impossible to hear anything anyone is saying.
It’s a real cesspool. A voluntary sh*thole we dress up for and go to every single weekend.
It’s the ultimate social paradox.
Yes, we ladies pull on those skin-tight ensembles with the spiked heels and the mesh cutouts and we go to the club. Every time a girl goes out, she tells herself certain things to make her soon-to-be-regrettable actions seem farfetched.
It’s the only way we can justify our terrible behavior, by denying it will ever happen.
Scream at a stranger? Me? No way. Text my ex? Get real.
Saying these things to ourselves makes us feel better... even if they're all a load of sh*t.
Here are 55 lies every girl tells herself (and everyone else) before going to the club.
