The solution to dating in San Francisco boils down to one simple concept. Choice.
You heard me.
Dating in San Francisco is about choice.
Earlier today, my head was spinning as I tried to figure out the dating problem in San Francisco. First I Googled “why is dating in San Francisco…” and Google finished my sentence for me with the simple words “so hard.”
After reading a few articles, I had the idea to make a flow chart of my life to figure out what parts of dating have been easy and what parts have been hard. I realized I didn’t know where to start. My life is too complex, too full of choices. And, I realized, so is dating in San Francisco.
So, when faced with an overwhelming and complex task like making a flow chart or, I dunno, dating in a city like San Francisco, where does one even begin?
