IN Vegas it's tough grinding.When I make a trip to California I feel like a Poker genius.

I got so lonely at one point that I went to a GA meeting at the local church just for the hell of it. Which I always tell people... If you ever feel bad about yourself, go work day labor for a day or two and maybe you're mind will change. I'll add GA meetings to that list.

I can only speak for myself but being on the strip everyday has taken its toll on me and the constant rowdiness with everyone around you on full party mode gets kinda old.

Dating was interesting as well. Lol. I have multiple funny dating stories in vegas.But the one that sticks out is this gal I met buying smokes at a Dotty's in North LV. We texted and chatted for some time. She was taking business at UNLV and I helped her make a financial model of the sorts in excel for one of her projects. We grabbed food here and there and eventually she came back to my place one night after a month of hanging out. One thing led to another and when we finally had our clothes off and I was about to you know... Go all in... She stopped me and said, "if you want to do this, do you think you could give me a couple hundred bucks?" I was like, "Are you serious?"

She was. Lol. I told her she needed to get the eff out, but I brought her from her apartment to my place in my car. She lived on the south side of the strip near UNLV, and I was gonna drive her home. So I paid for her uber ride... Kinda. I sent her 5 blocks up the street lol.

I was so disgusted that I packed my crap right then and there and drove strait back to my home state. I needed a break from it all.

I'll be heading back in May to live there permanently. I'm gonna get a dog this time and I miss the sushi options.

As far as the poker goes, I am a tourny player. So having lots of tournament options was the allure to me moving in the first place. Tournies tend to be softer IMO. But I've held my own in the cash games. I don't notice a difference really in the cash games from my home state, I just have more options which is nice. Granted I've only played poker in two states sooooo.

GL. Come out and visit and see what you think.
What are the others? OP might want to know.

Re: thinking of moving to vegas from FL

Same thing just happened to me. In hindsight, the warning signs were there (asked matter-of-factly if I was married, expressed desire to try stripping, said she preferred older men), but what gets me is that she works at the casino (not a large one), and I'm a regular there. You'd think she'd be more reluctant to ply her datehooking trade in that situation.
