Taking it from someone who used to live in Miami I know cities like that can be very transient.
...But, I found it easier to meet people there than I do in Denver
It took me about 8 months to find a real friend in Miami and then about a year to have a boyfriend...but at the same time I was meeting people the day I got there and there was always new people visiting constantly so if I ever wanted to meet with someone that was never an issue. I met guys from all over the world consistently. When I was really putting myself out there to meet people, it was very possible to have a date ANY night of the week. But it never lasted.
So, I say you may have better luck if you move out of Vegas...but at the same time a lot of these cities aren't any different. Denver isn't considered transient but it's still hard to meet real people out here.
But for a city like Vegas and others the thrive on tourism, they don't really make great recipes for relationship material.
...And think beyond the region. Just because a state or city is close and convenient doesn't mean it's going to be your match. Despite the new boy syndrome I'm having...I am happy that I came this far from Florida
sexyjam saidShould I consider moving to a more gay friendly city where I think I would have more options? Im really torn about this
That can be a double edged sword. When you have more options, 50 million other people have 50 million other options. So it can take even longer. Less popular towns with medium sized gay populations are better off for finding relationship material IMO.
