Love and Sex in Las Vegas, after 10+ yearsPage 1 of 1    
I've lived in Las Vegas for 30 years and I want the honest objective opinions
of other people who have lived here long enough to get used to the town.

In terms of Love, Sex, and Romance, how does Las Vegas compare to where
ever you came from ?
Is it better here, or worse ?

I moved here from Oklahoma. Economically, Vegas has been pretty good.
I make at least twice the money here than I could be making in Oklahoma at the same job.
However, when it comes to love, sex, and romance..... Oklahoma has Vegas beat
all to hell.

I had at least 10 times the opportunities in Oklahoma than I've ever had in Vegas.
Considering the sexy reputation Vegas has, it has to be in reality, the un-sexiest
city in the country.
Sure.... there's lot's of sex to be had in Vegas for a man.
If prostitutes is your idea of sex.

All the married people I know here, got married before they moved to Vegas.
I don't know anyone who has moved here single and met someone and got married.
I can't say, I know anyone who's managed to find and keep a relationship going in
Vegas, for more than a few months.
I know a few people who started relationships with people in other states, but not here.

How is your love life here, compared to where you came from ?
Has it been better or worse ?
Have you ever contemplated moving back home just to find someone ?
Would you recommend your single friends back home moving to Las Vegas ?

It ain't just Vegas it's Reno also. I only lived nine years in Vegas but all the work I did was in the casinos. I was in the business as a dice dealer. Also as a masseur. Twenty joints. I think that gives me a deeper insight into Vegas than maybe somebody not on the front lines of casino life is privy too.

Maybe I have a distorted viewpoint. But Vegas IS gambling. And all the other attendant vices.

Love in Vegas? Men are money and women are meat. The town is tough and cynical. It is hard on relationships. Hard to establish and hard to maintain.

Vegas always seemed like it could be paradise. A little paradise. Good jobs, cheap cost of living, beautiful climate. It was the deadliest town I ever lived in. I loved it when I didn't hate it. 1987 - 1996. I left and never came back.

Why! Why? WHY? Why did I have to kill this thread. Maybe going to church. Maybe you could meet em there. Or...

To tell you the truth, Vegas makes a mockery of love. I always thought it was strange to live in Vegas and not be part of the main nerve. But that's just me.

See the place to meet women is in the casinos where you work. But...

That could be trouble.

If you don't want to feel like a John then buy a rock and troll for crack addicted prostitutes.

"Got a pipe? Wanna party?" They WILL say yes. Then it's not like you are paying for it.

Misery loves company!

I moved to Vegas in '87. LA was kicking my ass. I just wanted to live. Around about this time there was real estate bubble in Southern California. Why not sell your house for a million bucks and buy into Vegas for a third of that price?

Retire, live on a golf course and play bingo. Why were 6000 people per month moving to Vegas during the nine years I lived there between 1987 and 1996?

The people who I knew as I toiled in the industry, we had a saying, "It's about the money."

I can remember hearing these people who made their deal with the devil, they were always complaining that Vegas had no culture.

This is what is hard to comprehend: where most of the money is coming from, how it's acquired and why something has got to give. My journey through Las Vegas deeply marked me. And what I experienced is nothing special. The daily fare.

Can't find a girlfriend? Shucks. Just think about the money.

For me, it is what you make of the situation. My time in Las Vegas was so wonderful, I am returning permantly afterbeing gone for a long time. If you present yourself in the proper and circulate in the right circles, you will find peace, love and joy! There are lot of distractions in LV but when the right situation arrives, you gotta grab it! The problem in Vegas is, there are too many partiers and its all for now. Trust in yourself, watch yourself and just maybe the right one will cross your path soon! You gotta look out though, more bad than good comes across our paths. A little faith and alot of prayer, it will happen!
Good luck people!! javascript:smilie('')

well i live in new york and connecticut most of my left before coming out to vegas. easier to get laid out here for sure. however, i guess the inherited consequence of that is the girls how have a sweatshop full of kids! back east a relationship was easier. so ive learned 3 things out here, spend as little money as possible, date girls who live in anthem or summerlin, and make sure to check for an adams apple

There's one thing that newbies to Las Vegas need time to get used to.
That is, how embedded and widespread drug usage is in this town.

Drugs cause people to act in strange and erratic ways. People who are used to normal rational behavior will need to figure that out.
When it comes down to you or the drug...... the drug will win, every time.

Druggies act a lot like closet homosexuals used to act 40 years ago.
I've never known a druggie who didn't try to pass themselves off as straight.
There are people who you know, who are regular cocaine users, and you wouldn't think they would do that.
But they do and eventually you will find out about it and it will explain a lot.

Sex? Whats that? Is that what I see advertised on commercials and tv? Its been so long since I've had anything to do with sexual activities that I've actually forgotten what it entails! And I'm living in Sin city! HAHA Too bad I have no money, otherwise I could at least buy some female attention!

I moved to Vegas three years ago. So, maybe, this thread doesn't apply to me. However, I moved here from Fla, for a number of reasons. One of which was because I was getting too close to a woman there, and I was afraid of love. It has never proven to be a good thing.

After being here for just a few weeks, I found that I really missed her and she agreed to come to Vegas to live. To shorten this story,we were married in May of this year.

Now just a few months after our wedding day, I am writing in a dating site forum! Yes, it lasted a whole three and a half months. I am now living alone, again.

Why am I telling you all this? Well, after reading all the above posts, I realize that I am not going to find love here, in Vegas. I am not even sure that I want to approach that slippery slope ever again. BUT if I wanted to find a solid relationship, you have pretty well convinced me that I won't find it here.

Now, about the finding a sexual partner. Las Vegas, scares me in that department. I don't like condoms, and in this city, I am afraid not to use them. Sop, I guess I will be celibate for as long as I live in Las Vegas. (I am looking for a place in the Dallas area)

It may be Sin City, but unless you are a tourist, it's not a Fun City. It's a city with no passion. It's a city that offers no future. Although I am 61 yrs old, I still have a passion for life. But if I stay here, that passion will quickly fade.

Thank's so much for opening my eyes. You have done me a great service.

Well I have not lived here very long as well.. a little over 2yrs and I have only dated one man since moving here and that was for about 3mths.. then about 3 mths later he took his own life. So I am totally afraid of dating men out here and I find its very hard to meet men that are not just looking for a booty call. I want something more meaningful and long term. I have told girl friends from back home if you want to just get laid, come to Vegas. If you want to actually meet someone that has something to offer stay in NH.. Looking for a hook-up is all the men here seem to be interested in and that's not my cup of tea. Playa's are playa's in every State and Vegas is no different, but I don't need a playa!

finding a woman in vegas that isnt jaded or too caught up in her own thing is kinda hard. even talking to people passing by is getting harder and harder in this town. nobody is polite anymore. no communication, nobody wants to know you or wants to take the time. it suuucks. im glad i have the group of friends that i do, but dating out here is why i've been celebit for the past year. no one worth my time and effort. i'd rather skate.
