I suspect it’s much more difficult for those looking to meet Mr. I’ve found that social networking sites like My Space and Facebook are great ways to meet people—and don’t think they’re only for the kids.
Still, you never really know what you’re getting until you see each other face to face, which is an advantage of the matchmaking event that is popularly called “speed dating.” Here in Vegas, Cupid.com/Pre-Dating organizes age- and interest-specific gatherings at local clubs, cafés and restaurants.
Participants rotate through a series of six-minute “pre-dates” and afterward Cupid.com/Pre Dating e-mails each participant a list of people who indicated they’d like to know more.
Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process of dating system whose purpose is to encourage people to meet a large number of new people.
Its origins are credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish Ha Torah, originally as a way to help Jewish singles meet and marry.

Enjoy complimentary featured cocktails while you socialize and network professionally, but remember, the Strip is dominated by tourists looking to have a good time and to live up to the “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” slogan—wink, wink!
Personally, I prefer to meet people through the local music scene; you can often find me in one of the area’s many excellent blues venues.
Besides building a virtual community, My Space provides ample opportunity to express your creativity.
