    hello,

    would you (fellow vmb friends) consider vegas a good place to possibly meet a new soulmate besides the usual fun reasons we visit vegas?

    It just seems to be a place where people from all walks of life go to just get away from the stresses of life and like me it seems to be one of the easier places to return to solo after going with your partner for so long.

    No. Vegas is about the fleeting pleasure, not the finding of a soul mate. In fact, let me raise that to a Hell No! There's a reason the slogan is "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas."

    Once you stop "looking" for that person - you will find them. (no matter where you are). :peace:

    No not a good idea. I prefer to meet someone who is NOT into gambling and would want to talk me out of it. But still enjoy Vegas without the gambling though.

    Most folks (95% to 98%) who head to the tables play for excitement and the rush. Not to make money. With that they are absolute dead weights and will weigh you down mentally and emotionally affecting your own business approach when you are at the tables.

    If I want to meet someone it would be in a cooking class or a tango class or something. Definitely not in some casino.

    There is a major flaw in your idea. To know if the person you met is "the one" you have to properly date them and make sure they really are the one, you two can get along, and they aren't psycho. You can't properly do that long distance. Sure you could get lucky, take a gamble with that person you met and maybe it will work out. Odds are better on Keno though :peace:

    DMSCR beat me to it.

    When I traveled to Vegas solo, and was single, I had no interest in meeting a woman with a gambling problem. #rimshot

    I would like to be involved with a woman who enjoyed going to Vegas with me. I don't expect to meet her there though. But it would be great if a woman enjoyed going with me.

    I dated a woman who thought gambling was just a waste and that wouldn't work. It was't the reason things didn't work out but I could see that she would never want to spend a few days in Vegas with me.

    I guess it's always possible, but doesn't seem likely. I've met some nice people gambling, but hardly anyone I would even really be actual friends with outside of the casino, let alone marry.

    Yeah this is kind of what I am thinking: you meet somebody in Las Vegas... maybe at best you get to spend 2-3 days together... then one of you has to go home...

    Then what do you do? Try to start a long distance relationship?

    Not saying it wouldn't work, but more than likely it won't and probably end up being costly for time and money... just be easier to try and find somebody locally whom you can date, get to know, see if you are compatible, etc.

    You should try locally. Online dating is the new wave of meeting new people. Or get involved more locally.

    A good friend of mine went to a resort on his own. A woman saw him sitting alone and came over because she was having a bad time with her friend and I guess she liked the way he looked. They hung out for the weekend. They started a long distance relationship, but it was driving distance. They've been married for a number of years now and have a daughter.

    It can happy but that is just one story, lolz.

    One of my best friends met his girlfriend in Vegas. He's not really a gambler and neither was she, they met at a club and hooked up. I forget where she was from, but they had a long distance thing for a few months and then she moved to NY and they were together for a pretty long time. At least a few years, they only broke up recently.

    Even if you meet a girl and she gambles it doesn't mean she's a degenerate. That would mean all of us are degenerates too.....oh wait.. :evillaugh

    I met my wife in Vegas.


    She went out a week ahead of me from Flusherville, and I met her there.

    Okay, that was stupid.



    I think I'll go against the crowd here and say, "Why not?!" At least you won't be meeting people who don't go to Vegas, so you have something important in common already.

    You never know who you'll meet....or where you might meet them. Heck, you could even meet someone here on ol' VMB! Stranger things have happened.... ;)
