    Don't EAT GARLIC THAT WHOLE DAY....NO, NO, NO onions or GARLIC!!!.
    (even the smell of a recent burger on someone's breath is noticeable.....)
    There is NOTHING WORSE than dancing with someone and KNOWING what they just ate - ESPECIALLY onions and garlic!! When a man or woman smells of garlic, you bet I will tell them - even if I don't know them very well. You will not believe the "Thank you"'s and words of appreciation I get from people who are completely unaware of their odors.
    They right away put their hand over their mouth, ask me for gum, or go to the bathroom and wash up. I've had some people even leave the club for 30 minutes and come back smelling better! Think about it, you're doing them a favor. I would certainly want someone to tell me! I would hate putting someone through a dance having to put up with garlic breath! Ugh!

    My Rule: If someone offers me a piece of gum or breath mint... I PROBABLY NEED IT.

    I have a simple, three-step process for hinting to a person that they smell like garlic ... and need to take care of it.

    I tell them in a friendly way, but am really quite frank about it.
    This is how I do it.
    I don't care who it is, male or female, Joe Blow or the Pope:

    1. First, you pull them over to the side of the dance floor,
    2. Second, grab them by both shoulders,
    3. Third, gently smile, and whisper in their ear, "YOU SMELL LIKE GARLIC."- Works like a charm.

    Happy Dancing!

      To garlic eater: Eat one apple (or better: two apples) after your favorite garlic-flavoured meal and everything will be fine.

    It’s amazing what you hear when you’re in the restroom (WC/toilet) of a nightclub.

  • Dancers Who Smoke
    by ediester

    When you're dancing with someone who smokes, and you don't, or, you are a smoker and are dancing with a non-smoker, this is what you do.

    If you are a smoker:
    5 seconds before you get up to dance:
    • 1st Put out your cigarette in an ash tray- do not carry it to the dance floor, drop it out there, then step on it to put it out. Number one, this shows you have no class, and second, you, your partner, or others may accidentally step on it and slip and fall.

  • Get out of my FACE!!!
    by ediester
    You know, you're having a great time dancing with a guy, and suddenly all you see is his FACE in YOURS, about 2 centimeters away??? (If you've been out enough, we've ALL run into this at one point or another....) Then, if he talks to you, you can literally feel his SPIT splatter all over your face!! YUCK!! At first, you think to yourself, "Well, it was just a slip, maybe he lost balance.. big deal" BUT. He does it again, and again, and AGAIN, and it's almost as if he wa...
