Jay Devoy has a cynic’s guide to living in Las Vegas. In sum, he doesn’t like it. One of the biggest problems with living in Las Vegas is that people rarely lay down roots in Vegas. Instead, it’s a transient population.
Living in Las Vegas is great for many others reasons.
1. The locals are hot.
Those hot casino workers, bottle service girls, and strippers that tourists obsess over actually live in Vegas. Nerds call them “hired guns.” If you live in Las Vegas, they are called something else – locals.
Local girls are hot, and they tend to burn out from the party lifestyle and dating bad boys. If you’re a quality man who can carry on a decent conversation, you will have a better chance of meeting a beautiful women than you would anywhere else in the U.S.
2. Housing is cheap.
You can get a two-bedroom apartment with a hot tub for $800 a month.
Some say a woman has “hit the wall at 30.” That’s untrue in Vegas. Find that $800 a month apartment in Green Valley. Bring your lap top to the Coffee Bean off Town Center. Run game.
4. Eye Candy.
Join LVAC. I pay $22 a month. There are always hot strippers at the gym. I don’t talk to girls at the gym, but I enjoy checking them out.
5. The law is reasonable.
The age of consent in Nevada is 16. Although 16-year-old girls aren’t attractive to me, many young men have gotten into serious trouble after having sex with someone who was 17. The risk of being tricked into having sex with someone under 18 isn’t a considering in Vegas.
6. Family court judges have seen it all.
Although Nevada is a community property state, the judges are more cynical of women seeking alimony than in neighboring California. If you think your wife is going to divorce you, move to Vegas. File for divorce. Mitigate the divorce destruction.
7. Gun laws are reasonable.
Want to own a carry a concealed gun? Own an AK-47? Although Vegas ain’t Texas – Clark County does require that handguns be registered – the gun laws are relatively liberal.
8. Tourists come to party hard.
“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Free from social norms or other scrutiny, women let it all out. Take the farmer’s daughters and southern belle’s back to your hot tub.
9. Pool parties in Las Vegas are spectacular.
If you have a nice body, you will meet women interested in having fun. Even if you don’t have a nice body, you can enjoy the views.
10. Red Rock Canyon.
I enjoy long, philosophical walks. Red Rock Canyon has dozens of trails with spectacular views.
11. St. George Utah is less than two hours away.
12. The food is world class.
Some of the best restaurants in the world are located in Las Vegas.
13. Locals get in free.
If you have a local ID, you’ll get into the Rhino and most clubs without having to pay cover charge. If you’re a gym regular and somewhat social, you’ll meet a lot of the club’s VIP hosts. When you go out, you’ll be able to skip the lines – and often you’ll be comped a few drinks.
I could write more, but impose a 30 minute time limit on any given blog post. My time is up, or I’d write much more.
As with everything in life, Vegas has its flaws. If you focus on what Vegas offers instead of what it lacks, you’ll love living in Las Vegas.
P.S. Pool parties.
