Everyone who isn’t a local is trying to plant roots by finding common interests
This is where the vast assortment of meet-up groups, classes, and events in LA come in. Entrepreneur groups like Ivy and Silicon Beach, Pinot’s Palette painting and wine classes, hiking groups, Young Literati at the Downtown Public Library, Avant-Garde at LACMA, even tech classes at the Apple Store attract single and looking lost Angelenos that aren’t necessarily in the entertainment field, but are looking to partner up on much-more-interesting common ground.
Our ADD attitude allows for something shiny, new & beautiful around every corner
And I’m not just talking about people and cars -- in fact, ignore those shiny things and focus on substance. Restaurants, bars, lounges, and even grocery stores are constantly trying to one up each other by renovating, bringing in celebrity chefs/mixologists, and creating atmospheres and environments that set the stage for romance. Even dive bars in LA are stage-designed to have the perfect divey appearance, which means stage-designing your first kiss there doesn’t seem tacky at all.
