Living life as a Los Angeles single involves being on the cutting edge of technology. Trendy is not a word here, it is an obsession. We do have one positive attribute that practically no other place in the world can claim: that is sunshine! Los Angeles has the world's best weather. So swim a little swim.
Let's face it: "Men want beautiful women and women want men that have beautiful women" (Kinris, 2004). Men with a woman by their side are viewed as more attractive and more approachable. It is the latest approach to dating services. It is called Wing Girls (Kinris, 2005). However, with hundreds of internet love matching sites and dating services to choose from, why not just try the old fashion way. When a Los Angeles single visits friends and family, or traveling, or in a social event, be visible and catch attention. Focus and analyze the audience. Choose the topic of conversation and resist the temptation to throw in everything about the subject. Use humor; do not humor. Soon a target will follow.
Being a Los Angeles single gives you the luxury of being bold. Try blowing kisses in the rain to a man or woman you have never seen before. The rain melts away chocolate, it lightens your spirit, even cleanses your soul. Does desert living, mountain climbing, water skiing to the lights, or night golfing sound exciting to you? Los Angeles singles include a melting pot of cultures and personalities. That just means more fish to catch.
There are a few good things about being solitary, especially in Los Angeles. For the Los Angeles single art lover, visit Pasadena's Norton Simon Museum of Art and spend the afternoon in front of van Gogh's Mulberry Tree. Remember eye contact? How about some raw plays or even the popular Dead End at the Ahmanson Theatre? The spoken word scene for a Los Angeles single is breaking out to clubs better known for beats than beatniks: the Key Club, the Lounge, North, Friars of Beverly Hills.
For the non-pretentious LA singles; visit the Bungalow Club at Melrose and La Brea with its' Tango classes, Monday night live jazz band, Wednesday comedy clubs, Saturday pajama brunch, and its' awesome Moroccan theme. Dinner is fabulous when you are single and willing. Let's not forget the Martinis! Enjoy upstairs when you feel like socializing or dancing with a date. Who can think of a one-stop arena for having a fantastic time? Even for a low-key Los Angeles single, an evening out into the town in Studio City's Mexicali Cantina and their famous flavored Margatini's (a Margarita served in a Martini glass with an extra shot of Tequila) or even the ambience in Sherman Oak's Casa Vega (Cadillac Margarita's) could prove an eventful night. Speaking of tomorrow, what we do not know will not hurt us. Just hear a kiss; listen to the whisper.
Word of advice: the overwhelming fact: California singles must earn $12.50/hour just to pay "bare bones" expenses. So, be wise and choosy with the fish you are trying to catch. With some careful observation, you can tell a lie. Women should beware. HGB is another "date-rape" drug associated with creating a sense of intense intoxication and an enhancement of sexual interest. HGB induce sleep and is more dangerous than Rohypnol in that, as an extreme central nervous depressant, users often forget to breathe. Although used in Europe as an anesthetic, it began being abused by bodybuilders in the U.S. in the early nineties. Other dangers include Ecstasy, Ketamine and Rohypnol. Some of them are odorless, colorless and tasteless. Be careful living as an LA single!
