5 people to avoid at the afters
Cracking on after the rave can often be more enjoyable than the club or festival you went to beforehand. Sitting around, or dancing, with a select few people through to the next day conjures up all sorts of woozy magic and mischief.
But, like a club, you can’t always choose who you carry on with, especially if it’s not you who’s hosting. An assorted cast of characters can sometimes have a negative impact on the afters experience, and here are a few you’ll want to avoid…
For some reason this person just cannot keep their hands to themselves. Constantly ignoring boundaries, or being inappropriate in one way or another, they’re an unwelcome presence and one who you should swerve at all costs.
This person has arrived at the afters empty-handed and with no intention of paying for anything they consume. Yet they’ll be scanning the room like a hawk, ready to sidle up and see if they can get involved in whatever’s being dished out.
THE SELF-CENTRED ONE
You know the one, they’ve been hoovering all night and now all they can talk about is themselves. In fact, they’re so far gone you can’t get a word in edgeways and they may as well be talking to their own reflection, such is the lack of awareness.
THE CONSPIRACY THEORIST
Another one who talks too much, but this time the substances they’ve been inhaling have unlocked their esoteric knowledge of Egyptian mystery schools and the illuminati’s use of triangles and all-seeing-eyes across the media.
No one knows how this person even made it to the afters. They can either barely walk or talk, or their behaviour is so wayward that they’re disrupting the energy of the entire room. Keep a distance or, better yet, find a way to remove them from the afters.
