How old is too old to go clubbing? This survey says 37.



A new study by Currys PC World found that 37 is the age at which most people deem it socially unacceptable to go clubbing.

The survey of 5,000 adults found that 37 percent of the participants thought it was a bad idea for people over 40 to go to the club. It also found that people as young as 31 begin to lose interest in going out to clubs and prefer to stay indoors.

The main reason people 37 years old and older do not want to go out is because they do not want to “face the hangover,” the survey found.

“The Great Indoors study recognizes the fact that there comes a time when we appreciate our home comforts more than a hectic social life and it can often be a drag to play the social butterfly at parties and nights out,” Matt Walburn, brand and communications director for Currys, told NME.

“It’s now almost impossible to get bored at home, with endless [television] sets and the latest technology, such as 4K TV, enhancing the in-house experience, so much, that it often surpasses its ‘outdoor’ equivalent,” Walburn added.

Some 37-year-olds were surprised by the news.

The survey prompted others to contemplate their futures.

Others thought the survey hit the mark.

"As someone who is about to be 37 verrrrry soon I'm convinced I am, indeed, too old to go dancing (although this was also true of me at 27," said one commenter on Facebook.
