A picture is worth 1,000 words, and after all if you don’t have any photos showing what a great time you had, why did you even bother going out? From such a technologically driven and social media focused generation, you’ll find that almost every time you do something of note there will be a designated photo time.
There is an unspoken assumption that men in nightclubs are devoid of any standards or taste when it comes to ‘picking up’.
