Plus, considering so many people move to SF for their start-up or tech career, it’s pretty imperative that they find success in that arena.So, is it really any surprise that all of those tech nerds we complain about constantly aren’t able to put any real effort into dating, and instead, rely upon the instant gratification of apps… It also doesn’t help that most of us won’t date on weekends.I’m also not saying that if the weather permitted, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world either.
Now, if you walk onto a bus or into a bar, everyone is too mesmerized by the glow of their i Phone screen to look up, and see what’s happening around them in the world they actually inhabit. (No, I’m kidding; please don’t.) Perhaps, if we were all a little less reliant on technology to do, well, everything for us, we’d be able to meet new humans (dates, even! Considering “everyone” in San Francisco is loaded these days, you know, except those of us who aren’t, it seems like money shouldn’t really be an issue when it comes to dating.
In San Francisco, however, it’s basically always puffy jacket weather.
And while I’m not saying that women should have to show a little skin to get everyone in the dating mood… And we definitely won’t ditch the hoodie for a sweater—or the jeans for a dress—in a minimal effort to make a good first impression.
But, the only way to stop dating is either to resign yourself to a life of solitude—or keep goin’ on dates until you meet someone who makes you want to stop.
I’m not happy about it either, but that’s just the way it is. Occasionally, the east coast suffers through a miserable winter, one that requires turtleneck sweaters and full-length puffy coats—two things that are terrible for everyone’s sex drive.
