Did I mention the visual competition that you have to contend with when you're on a date here? Nope, I think I forgot that. By visual competition I mean the women that are dancing around tables barely clothed, the cocktail waitresses that are wearing what looks like thong underwear and high heels, the midriff showing, boobs to her nose bartender and any other half clothed women in this city. Because remember, Vegas is based off of sexual appeal. Now when you're on a date, not only are you in a competition with the other woman or women that he is most likely dating as well but you are also in a visual competition with these women on your own freaking date. Because honestly, any straight guy that says he doesn't look at a half naked woman dancing around is most likely a liar or is completely and utterly happy in his relationship. There's absolutely nothing wrong with looking because I'd say 98% do it but when it's on your date, it pretty much just sucks. Imagine that you're sitting there having a conversation with the guy and he keeps craning his neck to check out some other woman that looks like she's in her underwear. You're most likely the marrying, take home to momma kind of woman but when minimally dressed eye candy goes walking by, you'll most likely find your dates eyes and attention wandering. I find that if a guy's like that with me on our first few dates then he's not the one for me.
Normally, on any other day I have no issues with any of this but when it comes to dating, I find it all absolutely frustrating. As if dating already didn't make me nauseous enough I now have all of this crap to deal with. You could be reading this and nodding along and agreeing with me about how sucky all of this is or you might be thinking that I'm a prude and should lighten up or if I was more appealing and entertaining I wouldn't have to go through this. Well, I'm far from a prude and if I lightened up anymore I'd be one of those too bright light bulbs that burns your eyes. I may have my rather dull moments (who doesn't) but when out the last thing I am is boring and I like to think that I am appealing and that I don't need to walk around in my underwear to be so. There's just unfortunately different forms of competition in this city along with multiple different types of mentalities. Not sure if I would call it a good thing but thankfully I'm not alone in this as many of my friends (male and female) endure the same things dating wise. It sucks but like my mom always said, you have to kiss a bunch of toads before you meet a frog. Just don't get warts in the process.
I'd love to know in the comments what the dating scene is like where you live. is dating where you live an easy feat or is it just as sucky as it is here in sin city? If you live in Las Vegas as well I'd definitely enjoy knowing what you think and if you agree or disagree with me. If you happen to disagree with me then please, tell me where I should be going to meet the nice guys because I haven't figured it out yet.
Thanks for stopping by & until next time, stay the awesome person that you are my twinkling friend.
