Ok so I frequent this sportsbar, I've been doing this for about six years now, I have had semiflings with a few guys that have worked there, for some reason I am always a sucker for a bouncer and they just end up crushing me, but there's a new guy...i just wanted to know what people's thoughts were on bouncers, why they think someone would get that particular job? is it to make their way through the female waitresses and bartenders, is it to have the power to kick someone out? what is it?

I am sure a lot of it is a "power trip" type of thing. This is a pretty autoritative position, with the possibility of phycial altercations with rowdy customers and whatnot, but i am sure there are people out there who take the job, just because it is a job! Maybe some of them really care about the safty of others..maybe some of them just want a job where they get to work with and interact with the public, and i am sure there are some of them out there, who as you have suggested, take the job because of the possibility of meeting up with lots of pretty gals who like to go out clubbing. I ry not to generalize about people based on what they do for a living. Pretty much everyone needs to work..and there are a multitude of jobs in the world that need to be filled.

It depends on what you're looking for in a Bouncer,I suppose...Having the physical presence or abilities to deal with a "situation" before it got ugly or to cool things down would be key...So it looks like 3 characteristics are expected or desirable here...Physically Fit...An outgoing personality..a Take charge type of character.Sounds like what I'd think a lot of Women would want in a Man..Then too,it depends on the Taste of the Woman concerned.. Maybe She'd likes Tattoos,knuckle draggers,or a guy prepared to fight for Her..I did a Language course in Germany Years ago,and a Young Guy in my group was a Karate Brown Belt,and did bouncing at weekends for the Money,to Meet Girls,the social side,and occasionally for the Practise..He seemed to like what He waas doing..
