Finding New Romance and Companionship All adults crave companionship, and many desire romance. While we tend to think of these things being centered to the younger crowd, the fact is that many seniors are looking for a companion or romantic partner, as well. While their needs and wants may be different, this is a booming market for anyone looking to get into the dating website industry.

While the younger crowd craves vanity when looking for a mate online, seniors crave likeness. Not someone who looks like them, but likeness in relation to what they like. Hobbies, for instance, restaurants, church services, and movies. The senior crowd is not looking to create a new generation, so hobbies and general likes are big on the top of their list when finding a companion.

Personality-wise, men and women are different. Men, when sad, are likely to keep it to themselves, while women tend to reach out for help. This is a big issue with senior dating. Many widowed women are more comfortable looking for a companion, verses widowed men. When looking to create a dating website geared toward the senior crowd, you need to make sure that it is welcoming for men and women. You need a welcoming format and a welcoming payment plan (if it is a pay site). When it comes to operating an online dating website that requires payment, you need a reliable merchant account processor, such as eMerchantBroker.com. Trustworthy payment processors are a big plus when it comes to having your customer pay via plastic card payment. While a not-so-well-known processor may be okay, the security that eMerchantBroker.com provides is top-notch, which ensures that your customers are well taken care of.

Dating websites are huge, and there is practically a website for every niche. However, one of the leading demographics in online dating could use a few more options. Senior dating and companionship websites are lacking, and this is the perfect time to invest. While there are many things that you need to consider before purchasing your web address, one of the biggest is knowing the needs of your clientele. For this, you simply need to look around and observe the seniors in your life. You will quickly learn that senior men and women are very different – yet the same – when it comes to looking for a companion.

Celebrate the Holidays: 5 Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Planning Tips If you’re tired of hosting the same old holiday party year after year and you’re looking to spice things up and inject some fun into your festive gathering, then you might want to get on board with the latest trend: ugly Christmas sweater parties. All you have to do is instruct your guests to don the ugliest holiday sweaters they can find, or better yet, create their own ugly sweaters. With a few parameters in mind and some themed additions, you can easily put together a seasonal soiree that your guests are sure to enjoy. But if you’re at a bit of a loss as to how you should proceed, here are just a few suggestions to get your party on track.

  1. Send out invitations. The place to start, as with any type of party, is by sending out invitations, and there’s really only one way to go when it comes to creating an invite for you ugly Christmas sweater party; you have to use a photo of your own family in cringe-worthy holiday sweaters. You could take a current photo or dredge up an old one from a Christmas past. Or if your family has always been a well-dressed bunch, you could simply use Photoshop to fake a classic with ugly Christmas sweaters. But the addition of this photo is an absolute must to get people in the wacky spirit of the party.
  2. Create a themed menu. Not every dish at your holiday party has to incorporate a sweater theme, but it will give you an opportunity to have some fun with the menu. An easy place to start is by procuring a sweater-shaped cookie cutter. From there you can decorate sugar cookies with icing and other edible embellishments in order to make your sweater cookies into ugly confections (or you could have the guests do it as a fun activity). You could also make pigs in a blanket, but add sleeves to make your puff pastry look like little cardigans. Or you can make ugly sweater beer cozies. There is no shortage of ways to turn your feast into a festive array of sweater-themed treats.
  3. Make up rules. Just in case your family and friends aren’t familiar with ugly sweater parties, you might want to set some ground rules to help them figure out what to do. You don’t want guests to show up in just any old ugly sweater – they have to be holiday themed. But they also need to be over-the-top and ridiculous. The idea is to get as crazy and creative as possible. You could set a $10 limit so that people have to get used sweaters from thrift stores and dress them up with household items. Or you might require every sweater to include a reindeer. It’s really up to you what rules you choose to set.
  4. Plan activities. There are all kinds of classic party games that you could give an ugly sweater twist (pin the ugly on the sweater, ugly sweater trivia, or charades with clues that fit your ugly Christmas sweater theme, for example). But you might also organize a scavenger hunt, set up a photo booth stocked with costume pieces to compliment every guest’s ugly holiday sweater (including Santa hats, tinsel boas, and green and red mustaches on sticks), or even do Christmas song karaoke.
  5. Hold contests. Even better than getting all of your family and friends to submit to blackmail photos in ugly holiday sweaters is having contests to decide who has the best (or worst) entry, as well as the most creative, the best use of reindeer, the most technological (a string of lights, a soundtrack coming out of your sweater), etc. No matter what other ugly Christmas sweater ideas you come up with, one of the best parts of coming to an ugly sweater party is participating in the contests. Just make sure to come up with some good prizes like a set of sweater-shaped cookie cutters or an Ugly Christmas Sweater Kit, just for example.

5 Tips to Help Increase Event Attendance When organizing any event, you put lots of time and energy into planning by hiring the caterer, renting the space, organizing presentations or performers, decorating and so much more. You want to make sure you are able to host as many people as possible so that they can enjoy the results of all of your hard work! In order to increase event attendance, be sure to implement these 5 attendance tips!

  1. Save the date. When organizing an event, you need to give attendees enough notice so that they can plan on attending your event. Peoples’ calendars fill up fast, so be sure to give them plenty of notice so that they can block out their schedules! Even if all of the details aren’t in place yet, you can send out a tentative invite just to increase awareness and remind those you are inviting to look out for more information as the date approaches in the next few months or weeks. You can send formal invitations, e-invites, or even create an event page on a social media site such as Facebook. Better yet, try to integrate all of these options when possible so that people and have multiple ways to access the information about your event while at home, at work, or on the go.
  2. About 6 to 8 weeks before the day of the event, send out a formal invitation to remind your guests of the event and to provide them with solid, concrete event details and plans. When an invite is personal, people will feel more invested in the event and will be compelled to register for it. Provide people with a way to RSVP so that you can get a realistic estimate of how many guests to expect on the big day.
  3. A few days before the event, go through your RSVP list. Have you heard from everyone yet? If not, be sure to reach out to these individuals to check in. Perhaps they forgot to RSVP that they can attend. Or, they may have to decline the invite. Either way, this will provide you with a better head count so that the number of attendees doesn’t surprise you that day. Remind individuals that they only have a few more days to register. You can also provide some urgency by stating, “Hurry, only 5 seats left” to convince them to act now if they would like to come.
  4. Take advantage of social media sites. These sites allow you to update information regularly and notify guests of these changes instantly. You can add pictures, fliers, directions, links and more to get your guests excited while also keeping them up to date.
  5. Finally, ask attendees to spread the word! Word of mouth is the best way to encourage others to come to an event and get your event’s name out there and into the public. Ask attendees to share links on their Facebook pages or tell their friends about the event in person for effective marketing results.

Increasing guest numbers at your event can be done effectively and easily if you know how to approach the situation. Be sure to spread the word by communicating regularly, keeping people updated, giving advanced notice, sing social media, and taking advantage of word of mouth. If you employ all of these tricks, you will find increased attendance numbers so that more people can enjoy and benefit from this amazing event you have planned and executed! Whether you used a planning service such as Cristina Verger Event Planning and Production, or you did it yourself, you will have a successful event that people will continue talking about and praising!

Top 5 Foam Party Attire Tips Foam themed parries are unique, fun-filled nightlife events that everyone should experience at least once! This will absolutely not be your average party, and so the attire also is not so average. If you are unsure about what to wear to a foam party, consider these top 5 foam party attire tips to help you enjoy the experience fully.

  1. You may choose to wear a swimsuit. You will undoubtedly get wet, so a bathing suit is often the most comfortable and appropriate option. Guys can wear swim trunks and a t-shirt until the foam starts. Girl can wear suits or bikinis with a cover up until the foam begins to flow! Clothes can be restricting so bathing suits are often ideal to help you resist worrying about ruining an outfit or being weighed down by soggy clothes.
  2. Have fun with the theme and go all out! It is a great idea to be a little bit silly and really dive into the foam attire by bringing some goofy scuba gear and other accessories. Go wild by wearing a snorkel, goggles, a swim cap, or even flippers! You will be sure to get lots of compliments and laughs since you will be the life of the party!
  3. You can choose to wear regular clothes if you are more comfortable. You will not be alone; so don’t feel like you can’t dress normally. If you do choose to wear clothes, however, choose wisely. Make sure you aren’t worried about the material getting wet or messy. Also, try to choose lighter clothing options that won’t weigh your down when wet. If you wear clothes, remember they may be see through when wet, so a suit may still be a good idea to wear underneath your clothing for coverage. You can always take layers off when you are there to be more comfortable!
  4. Wear good shoes. Foam easily leads to a lot of slipping and sliding. Be sure to wear shoes with solid rubber soles that have traction to help you avoid falling during the foam party. Flat shoes can also help. Tennis shoes are often a good idea since you will be able to run around in them all night long since they have the necessary grip.
  5. Finally, be aware of your accessories and style choices. Girls should keep their hair back. Choose a ponytail or bun style to keep your hair in check and out of your face through the evening. Also, wear minimal makeup. You don’t ant to have to worry about mascara running down your cheeks all night as the foam gets into your face. If you do wear makeup, choose waterproof options that will stay in place

Preparing for a foam party with all of these tips will ensure that your attire is appropriate, comfortable and cute! Wearing the right clothing and accessories will help you to focus less on makeup smudging or a see through top and more on having a fantastic time swimming through foam! Enjoy the novelty of this type of themed party and have fun being the foam guy or gal!

Top 5 Productivity Tips for Night Owls Some people find themselves more productive at night. You could call these people night owls, because as soon as the rest of us go to sleep, they get to work. However, there is one major disadvantage for night owls: the fact that most business won’t resume until the morning, so they have to complete all of their tasks without the assistance of anyone else. Unfortunately, this type of work can be so exhausting that by the time the sun comes up, they are unable to get anything done. Essentially, productivity can easily be shot. Here are the top five productivity tips for night owls.

  1. Eat a big breakfast. A big breakfast will give you enough energy to get to the middle of the day, which is when you should be taking a short nap to get you through the rest of the day. However, by starting your day with some good strong calories, carbohydrates, protein, and potassium, you will have enough fuel to make it until about noon or so. That frozen croissant and cup of instant coffee will only give you about an hour of energy and then you’ll feel like sleeping the rest of the day.
  2. Nap. If you have to work it might be hard to take a nap, but if you can, it will definitely make you more productive. Even a 15-minute nap in the car or in the break room will make you more alert and productive. Just remember to set an alarm so that you actually can wake up. If you think you’ll sleep right through the alarm, it might be smart to ask a coworker to wake you up at a certain time. The last thing you want is to get in trouble with your boss.
  3. One of the most inspirational life quotes about staying awake all day comes from the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche: “Sleeping is no mean art: for its sake one must stay awake all day.” It is true that staying awake after you have been awake all night can be difficult, but it is important to keep yourself doing things that interest you in order to keep yourself alert. Doing boring tasks is a surefire way to start getting drowsy.
  4. Don’t drink energy drinks. Energy drinks are full of caffeine and other chemicals that can do more harm than good. Caffeine can lift you up, but just as swiftly, it will cause you to crash. Combine that with the sugar in most energy drinks and you have a recipe for disaster. So, instead of energy drinks, try sticking to water and healthy snacks, and you will see a remarkable difference in your alertness.
  5. Get exercise. If you can, bike to work, or get up and take a walk during the day. You might even be able to do some jumping jacks right there at your desk. Anytime that you feel exhausted, just get your body moving and your blood flowing – you will notice that you will not only feel more productive, but also more alive.

Top 5 Inexpensive Date Night Ideas Perhaps you’ve been wading into the dating pool frequently in search of that special someone and you’ve started to realize that blowing your whole paycheck to impress a first date isn’t exactly delivering the returns you’re seeking. Or maybe you’ve been with the same person for a while now, and between the house, the kids, and everything else you simply don’t have a lot of dough to devote to romance. As it turns out, most people are a lot more impressed by the thought and effort you put in and the ingenuity you display when it comes to sweeping them off their feet than they are by the amount of money you shell out in the process. So if you’re looking for a few good ways to show that certain someone you care with a budget-friendly date that’s worth remembering, here are some ideas that won’t cost you your first-born child.

  1. A night at the drive-in. When was the last time you parked the car and made out during a drive-in movie? If you’re under the age of thirty, the answer is probably never. But if you can manage to find a functioning drive-in nearby, this is a great way to pass and evening without spending a lot of dough. In a regular movie theater you have to be mindful of the patrons around you. But when you’re in your own car with a little privacy, you can talk all you want and even get the windows a little steamy. Bonus: bring your own food without the fear of getting busted by a teenage manager on a power trip.
  2. Bowling. Most people aren’t terribly keen to play sports during a date, but a little friendly competition could be just what you need to kick things off when you’re trying to get flirty. A night on the lanes can provide you with just what you’re looking for here. Pretty much anyone can throw a bowling ball and hit a few pins. And if your partner is having trouble, offer a few helpful hints and get in close to demonstrate.
  3. Carpet picnic. Turn the idea of a traditional picnic on its head by staying home instead. Clear away the coffee table, spread a blanket on the carpet, and set out some paper plates and a bevy of finger foods like sliced meats and cheeses, crackers, and fruit. You won’t have to do too much work to pull it together, you’ll avoid the bugs that plague outdoor picnics, and you can show off your knowledge of wine with a couple of good pairings (without having to worry about getting in trouble for drinking in public).
  4. Star gazing. There are few things more romantic than spreading a blanket on the hood of your car and watching for shooting stars. But if you want to make the date a little more interactive, dig through the garage to find your star chart from 9th-grade science and the telescope you haven’t dusted off in years. Want to make your date really special? Head to StarRegistry.com before the date to name a star for your honey so you can point it out during your special night.
  5. A symphony in the comfort of your own home. Since you probably can’t afford the cost of a night at the Met or Vienna Opera tickets, why not put on a show in your living room instead? Pull out your favorite music, light some candles, uncork a bottle of bubbly, and let the genius of Holst’s ‘The Planets’, Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’, or even a little ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ do the romancing for you.

5 Tips for Getting Your Band Booked in Clubs If you’re an aspiring musician with dreams of superstardom, you’re probably wondering how exactly to break into the industry. Everyone has to start somewhere, and unless you somehow manage to become an internet sensation overnight stardom is probably not in the cards. You’re going to have to get a band together, and spend months or even years performing at small clubs until the right person catches the right show and you get that first big break. But what if you can’t even seem to get your foot in the door at the local clubs? You might not be going about the process the right way. You’ve got to perform for people, build a fan base and have your music heard. So here are five tips for getting your band booked in clubs.

First of all, put together a demo tape. You’ve got to have some quality music recorded if you hope to earn a spot at a club. You can put this demo music on your website, on a CD or even on one of those small memory cards. But the key is to make sure the songs you choose to record puts your absolute best out there. It can be covers or original songs, but it should represent a band that’s worth paying to see in a busy club. Keep in mind that all of your contact information should be included however you put the demo out there, as much of your outreach won’t be in person.

Once you have the demo put together, consider creating some additional materials that make your band even more attractive for venue owners and concert promoters. These days that usually means crafting a press kit. This could be as simple as a single page, or as complicated as a full color booklet. The complexity of your press kit will probably hinge on the budget you have to spend, but if your band is relatively inexperienced you won’t have much information to print regardless. Don’t pad this document, as promoters can smell desperation. But it should certainly make your band sound compelling, and the music seem to be of a quality and style that will draw fans.

Now that you have a demo and press kit together, it’s time to get it out there. You’ll need to send this package out to every single club, bar, coffee house and related venue you can think of. And don’t forget about the less traditional events that normally offer live music. That means you should also check the upcoming community schedule for festivals, farmers markets, library events and county fairs. If you have a large group of friends, don’t forget about house parties as an opportunity as well. Right now the pay doesn’t matter. All you need is opportunity, and you’ll have to get through a lot of no’s before you finally get a yes. Look for booking agents to target as well, as they might know about events before they become public knowledge.

You’ve now gone the traditional route, but networking must be part of your approach. Who you know is often more important than what you know, and the right contacts can help even mediocre musicians get gigs. Go to as many shows as you can and meet the people involved. Become friendly with concert promoters and the owners of venues. Play open mic nights, meet other musicians and share war stories. The larger your network, the greater the chance that you’ll luck into a good opportunity.

If the clubs still don’t come calling, consider booking yourself for a gig. This may not be the most traditional way to go about things, but sometimes you have to create your own opportunities. Look for venues you might be able to secure for free and set yourself up as the entertainment. Consider adding other bands to the lineup, so you are guaranteed a larger audience. Keep the ticket prices low, and get the show listed on SonicBids to draw dedicated music fans. This might not be the most glamorous option, and you’ll probably have to spend some money. But it’s a great way to start building an audience and getting yourself noticed if no traditional bookings show up.

5 Healthy Things to Eat After a Big Night Out All of us have experienced a night out when seemly everything was done in excess: We danced in excess, we ate in excess, we might have even had a glass or two more of wine than we traditionally do. And while that evening may have been loaded with fun and good memories, sometimes the feeling that we have the next day (or two) is enough to make us have just a few regrets.

It doesn’t have to be that way, though. True, it is smart to try and do things in moderation but if you happen to have experienced a night where you didn’t make that a top priority, we have a list of five healthy things that you can eat to help you get back to feeling like your old self again.

Fresh fruit smoothies. You’ve probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and honestly, no matter how you feel after a big night out, that is a proven fact. We understand why a hearty breakfast with eggs, bacon and toast may not be what you’d like, but at least try making a fresh fruit smoothie. It’s quick, it’s easy and while the fruit provides your body with lots of vitamins and minerals, by adding a bit of yogurt, you can curb the cortisol in your system; this will help you to not accumulate belly fat.

Leafy green vegetables. If you had a heavy dinner, you also may not want to eat much come lunchtime, so opt for a fresh salad made with spinach, kale or romaine lettuce. The fiber will help to cleanse your system and the potassium will keep your kidneys in top condition.

Lemon water. If you’re looking for something that will help to detoxify your system in a fairly rapid way, lemon water is what you’re looking for. Water is an awesome way to purify your body and with a couple of lemon slices in it, the Vitamin C will also help to remove toxins as well as burn fat.

Season with ginger or garlic. Did you know that there are actual seasonings that you can put on foods that will help to keep the free radicals inside of your body at bay? Two of them are ginger and garlic. As an added bonus, ginger helps to relieve any nausea that you might feel and garlic is a wonderful natural antioxidant. Honestly, it’s hard to get too much of either one of these during this time.

Nuts, granola or protein bars. If you would prefer to do a bit of light snacking, don’t go for candy or potato chips. Nuts are a healthy source of monounsaturated fat, granola assist in lowering your cholesterol levels and the awesome thing about snack bars like Chocolite Protein Bars is that they help to boost up your immune system. So, as you’re easing back into the idea of having another full course meal, snacking on some almonds or peanuts, eating a bit of trail mix or taking a couple of proteins bars with you on your errands will help to get your digestive system right back on track.

How to Have a Social Life and Maintain Good Grades in College Contrary to popular belief, you can still get good grades in college and have fun. While professors, and maybe even your parents, will pressure you to get good grades, it is important to not feel guilty about spending time with your friends, because maintaining a healthy social life is crucial to your sanity. If you maintain a healthy balance between school and your social life you will be just fine. Moreover, it is important to realize that keeping this balance doesn’t need to be a high-wire act – it just takes careful discipline and motivation. Here is how to have a social life and maintain good grades in college.

First, make sure to go to class every day. In most colleges you aren’t required to go to each and every class – there is typically a pretty lenient policy on attendance. They just expect you to make up for the work you missed and do well on exams. As long as you do the work you will get a good grade. However, if you miss only one class, you might start to develop a nasty habit and it can be very easy to lose count of your absences. The more you go to class, the less time you have to spend catching up, thus the more time you get to spend with friends.

Next, make sure to study during the day. Instead of taking that fifteen-minute nap on the quad, try to spend that time studying for an exam or going over those notes from the last class, The same goes if you are taking online courses. No matter if you are getting your WSU online degree or your degree from any other online college, instead of taking an afternoon nap on the couch, do your homework that is due the next day. That way you won’t have to spend all night doing your homework or studying.

Another more extreme option – if college life is really starting to distract you from your studies – is to live off campus. Living in your own apartment a few miles from the university is a really good idea if the activity in the dorm rooms or the pledge houses is getting in the way of you being able to complete your school work. Not only that, but if you have to take the bus or subway to school in the morning you can spend that extra time studying. Commuting is a great impetus to get up earlier and do school work that you might not have done the night before.

Lastly, turn your social events into school events. You will feel much better about spending the weekends with your friends if you spend your weekdays with your classmates going over notes, studying for exams, and writing papers together. Instead of making your school work a solitary event, you can easily invite a few people over to make studying a more sociable event. You can even include drinks and snacks to make it a homework party. While your main priority in college is to get good grades and pass classes, you don’t need to sacrifice your sanity or your social life.

Go to one, and you'll see women engaging in one of the greatest mysteries of all time - Dressing up sexy to get attention for men, then acting annoyed when men actually give them attention. So how do you overcome this obstacle? With some strategy and tactics. Let me share with you some of my favorites. They have become my favorites based one criteria - the results the bring.

Nightclub strategy one: I'm not them

Put yourself in a beautiful woman's high heels. You're at a nightclub. How many times will you get approached? Once, twice? Hardly. Try ten times... or even more.

As a man who "gets it", this is actually to your advantage. Why? Because most guys are dumb, drunk and totally clueless when it comes to creating attraction.

Say to yourself right now... "I'm not them!"

Who are "them"? The men who offer to buy women drinks, kiss up to them in nightclubs and use lame pickup lines. All these actions accomplish one thing... loss of power. You don't want to communicate to a woman that you aren't in control of yourself and out of your element.

You need to have this mind state - you are comfortable in your own reality, and nothing she can do will disrupt that comfort. Remember, there will be resistance when you approach a woman. It's part of the nightclub ritual. She's testing you. Are you in control of your own reality, or will you give up your power at the first sign of trouble? And in a nightclub, it's even more specific. Can you keep up a conversation with a woman that isn't exactly easygoing and friendly?

There's two kinds of resistance. One kind if from the "rude woman" and it's very real. Too tough a nut to crack in one setting. If you approach women regularly, you will run into her kind once in a while. Don't take in personal. Move on.

The other kind of resistance is "give me an excuse to be friendly to you" resistance. If you are picking up on this vibe, press on my friend. She has given you the first indicator that she is interested in you.

Here's two ways to keep the conversation flowing. Charm and routine. My definition of charm is teasing a woman in a way that makes her laugh. It communicates that you are both confident and fun to be around. This is a great formula for producing attraction, and it's a great way to avoid the "friendship zone".

Routine is a category for things like palmistry, handwriting analysis, magic, and astrology. Read books on any of these if you want to learn a few routines to make interesting conversation.

After creating conversation and passing her resistance test, you have two options. Stay and try to close the deal, or get her contact information and leave. Nightclubs are a tricky environment with lots of distractions such as drunk, dumb guys and her group of protective (and jealous) friends. You must be very skilled in "attraction conversation" to keep the flow going.

If you're not experienced with this yet I suggest you get her number and follow up later on your own terms. There are less chances to make errors this way.

Before this article gets too long, I'll give you a quick summary one other great technique for beginners. It's called the "buddy system", and is designed specifically for nightclubs. Get a friend to "scout" for you, and do the same for him. Have him approach a woman you like and say, "Hey there. You know something? I think my friend would really like you. He's..." and then have him talk you up.

Soon you show up and are introduced. This technique throws a woman off balance, because her radar is programmed only for direct approaches. This makes the initial conversation with her a lot more easier.

In the end remember... it's just a woman at a nightclub. It doesn't matter if she likes you or not. Just talk to her. She expects you to. Practice communicating that you are comfortable in your own reality, and that you are different than every other drunk and dumb guy that approaches her.

Do this and you'll wonder why you ever thought it was hard to meet women at nightclubs.

It is available for instant access for a limited time at http://www.dating-secrets2.com/ ]]> Uncategorized http://101nightlife.com/nightlife_guide/47591617.shtml http://101nightlife.com/nightlife_guide/47591617.shtml Kurt Dight Tue, 08 Jan 2008 05:14:29 -0500 Bad Attitudes Can Ruin Your Dating Life I will admit myself that bars and nightclubs are not the best places to go to find the woman of your dreams. But, you never know you just might get lucky and meet someone special. Don't give up hope and give yourself a chance.

Anyway, let's get right to the point of this article. It's very important that when you are at a bar or nightclub, to look like you are having a good time. If you look lonely, desperate, and depressed, women will pick up on this. It's like they have a sixth sense about picking up negative vibes.

So, wear a smile on your face and act happy, even if you have to fake it. And if you are standing near the dance floor, act like you are really getting into the music and ready to dance. Women pick up on this and may actually ask you to dance. It's happen to me many times.

And here's another tip that will really help you to attract single women. If you are going to a bar or nightclub with a buddy, be sure and go with a guy that's a lot of fun to be with. Don't go with guys who have negative attitudes and always bitching and complaining about how women are such bitches, there's no women to meet, bars and nightclubs suck, and they stand around all night and take no action to meet women. Plus, they are boring, don't laugh, and act like they are at a funeral.

It is a given that you are going to have a few drinks, but you do not want to get to the point where you are belligerent. This will only ruin the evening. It is safe to say that if you are too drunk to drive your date home that you will never see him or her again. Also, keep in mind that getting sick from drinking too much alcohol is not very attractive at all.

You must also remember to still act respectful and mature even though you are in a bar. The days of drinking with your buddies and sorority sisters are over; so when you are with your date you have to keep a level of maturity about yourself. Taking a date to the bar can be a great time if you follow the tips above. It may not be the best place for a date, but it has its place in the dating world.

Sometimes, online dating can be a better option than bars.

Dubbed as the island's Mardi Gras, the event offers parades, featuring wild costumes or no costumes at all, dancing, music in the streets, and other activities. Held every last week of October, the main events happen on Friday and Saturday and during Halloween Week.

The yearly theme varies. The 1994 theme was "Mystical Myth and Twisted Tales," while the festival that was held last 1995 was dubbed "Tinseltown Dreams, Lights, Camera, Fantasy." During the 1994 Fantasy Fest, the crowd lining Duval and Whitehead streets were estimated to number 55,000 people in all.

Natives of the island are called Conchs, representing a mix of Cuban, Mexican, and Bahamian seafarers. In fact, many of its famous families never left the island.

The place has also attracted artists and writers who made the island's mythology popular. The island has been home to Tennessee Williams, Ernest Hemingway, Elizabeth Bishop, and Thomas McGuane. A lot of winners of Pulitzer prizes have also lived in Key West.

A lot of novels, television programs, and movies that have the island as its setting are also plentiful. Key West is also known for its quite large, accepted, and open gay population that contributes to the island's tourism and business.

In spite of the island's reputation of being laid back, its people are hardworking. This they owe to the fact that everything on the island has to be imported on a one-way truck. Also, owing to the desirability of property on this island, it also has a very high cost of living. Since tourism is the only source of income, many of its population have to hold two or more jobs just so they can survive on the island paradise.

So, remember to check out nightlife in Key West to have a memorable vacation.
