Finding love in a casino

Sometimes you’ll find love in the most unexpected places. A casino may not be the first place that pops into mind but there’s no denying the allure of the dim lights, snazzy drinks, glittering chandeliers, elegant people and bustling tables. It’s something about the ambience that just sets the mood and acts like an aphrodisiac. We’ve all watched the movies where Mr. Bond is having his signature Martini ‘shaken not stirred’ when lady Vesper walks in and there’s an instant spark. This could just as easily happen to you.

Put your best foot forward

Dressing for the occasion is of vital importance in this case, gents in suits and ladies in evening dress. It’s all about glamour. Make sure you stand out and sparkle, put on your best jewelry and make sure you look stunning.

Get your bearings

The best place to strike up a conversation is at the bar. Order a drink to take the edge off and scout the area. Casinos are usually bursting with people and energy. Gauge the room and see where you’d best fit in. Relax, enjoy your drink, and don’t rush; you’re likely to bump into someone right where you are. Don’t be afraid to initiate a conversation and if it’s your first time, go ahead and ask questions. If you’ve spotted something or someone intriguing, don’t be afraid to head over but always observe the situation. If someone is concentrated on a game, it is best not to disturb them. Return later. There’s nothing wrong with casually hanging around and waiting till their turn is over or they’ve finished the game.

Learn the game

Once you’ve settled on somewhere to position yourself, there’s no harm in getting to know the game. Even if you don’t play, understanding the strategy adds to the thrill. Casinos are all about thrills so get into it. It’s quite a rush, and you will have something to talk about when you see a potential person of interest. Knowledge is sexy.

Relax

Whatever you do, relax. If you’ve followed the above advice, that shouldn’t be a problem. Go with the flow and let your passions flow through you. You’re a magnet attracting good vibes. Just let the magic happen and don’t over-think the situation. The casino will do most of the work for you. All you have to do is let it happen.
