How Temptation Affects Your Vegas Dating Odds
It's almost on a daily basis where I hear someone say that dating in Las Vegas is impossible or there are just no good guys / girls out here. But how is that possible if almost everyone in Las Vegas, is from somewhere else?
Due to the transient nature of the city, people come and go more so than any other city I've ever been to. In this city, you'll meet a ton of great people to go out and party with, but how often does that translate into a solid, long lasting relationship? After years of research and development (lol), I think I've finally realized exactly what it is about Las Vegas that makes dating here a tad more difficult than any other city. It has nothing to do with the people, what they're like or where they're from. It has everything to do with.....temptation.
It's called Sin City for a reason. When people travel to (and sometimes live in) Las Vegas, not only do they throw caution to the wind, but they act as if caution doesn't exist. As a result, intoxication levels increase - and we all know nothing good can come out of that happening. The bottom line is, whether you're just starting out in a relationship or even if you've been in one for a while, this is one of the few cities in the world where you can "go out with the guys" or have a "girls night out" and get blasted until the sun comes up. We have the largest and greatest nightclubs in the world with some of the best DJ's and wildest parties. That leads to some pretty damn good looking people. Throw alcohol in the mix and what do you have? Temptation!
Temptation is no excuse for an individual to not settle down or be faithful in a relationship. But if you remove temptation from the equation, it would explain why relationships probably work out much better in a place where it's not always in your face! We all need to take responsibility for our own actions and know how to handle temptation when its thrown our way. Having integrity is doing the right thing, when no one is looking. So can we agree; dating is not impossible in Las Vegas. It's not that this city doesn't have any good guys or good girls. The fact is, temptation greatly affects our dating odds here in the city - and if we were to remove it from the equation, dating in Las Vegas would be the same as dating in the good old mid-west! Happy hunting...
