What could be better than a first date at the casino? First off, casinos are exciting, and that excitement is a good distraction from the first date jitters. The lights, the sounds, all of it is designed to dazzle the senses. We pay more attention to it than our own nervousness and shyness. No one is shy in a casino.
Dates and Casinos have one major thing in common that can complement each other when mixed. Both offer people a momentary escape from the daily routine. Dates give us a romantic thrill and night bursting with potential –first dates especially. We never know if it’s going to end in disaster or be the start of something big. It’s a gamble.
Casinos are just like that. There is no telling how the night will go once you are dealt your first cards or roll the dice. Visitors escape their normal lives for a bit and experience the glitz and glam of what the rich and famous get to do every day. It’s simply good fun. A couple on a date will feel special.
One thing that can turn a first date into a relationship is when two people form a bond, and casinos offer two things that help people form that bond. Winning and losing. It really doesn’t matter which. Win or lose, a couple will form some kind of bond over the experience. Either they’ll share the thrill of the win or find solace in each other for the loss.
Drinks are usually cheap, or even free, if you know the tricks. Casinos know that people who get a little buzz going are more likely to gamble an extra bit. Also, the best way to get people to come back and gamble more is to make sure they have a good time doing it. Booze always loosens things up.
Food is also cheap at casinos, at some of them at least. It depends on where you are, but many offer reasonable all-you-can-eat buffets or in-house restaurants. It’s the same basic idea behind the cheap booze. Keep the players happy, and make sure they had or are having a good time. They will either keep gambling or come back and gamble again.
Even though part of the charm of hitting a casino as part of the first date is to make it easier to loosen up, it’s also a good preview of what your partner’s self-control is like. A person who only plans to drop a hundred at the tables, but ends up playing and losing a thousand probably isn’t going to manage credit cards or family finances very well either.
It’s all about having as much fun as possible. One would hope that once you’ve decided that enough fun has been had, you can take it with grace and finish the night off in a positive state of mind.
