” Welcome to SF where “maybe” means “no” and “yes” means “maybe” and the only way your date is ever going to actually happen is if you have a reservation at Lazy Bear and/or the person has no better offers. Definitely don’t get attached to anyone you date in San Francisco because no one who moves to San Francisco actually stays in San Francisco.
So unless you want to move back to Boston or up to Portland (which, hey, maybe you do), you’re probably going to be heart broken in one year.
Specifically the Marina Safeway (aka Dateway), but Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s are not to be ruled out.
And sure, they probably also pick up some kale and gluten-free beer while they’re at it. No where will you find more people with Peter Pan Syndrome than SF. SF is tech-savvy and one of the benefits to that is that people actually aren't afraid to online date. Just not if there are pictures of tigers or duck faces involved.
Basically, your date views you like an app that’s in beta.
Maybe you’re pretty great with a lot of promise and the potential to make someone millions, but that doesn’t mean your date wants to actually download you.

Okay, maybe when you’re together you’ll actually make eye contact and have real conversation, but there will be no phone calls or emails until months -- years! Instead, it’ll be more of a, “Hey, wanna grab a drink after work” type of thing and then you’ll Uber there separately and have to awkwardly find each other in the bar and depending on how it goes, maybe get food after a couple of drinks, and then Uber home separately, and yes he is 100% leaving you alone on the sidewalk if his Uber shows up first. ): a large majority of them are still paying for the first date.
No one's getting picked up and dropped off at their house for the “date” and there isn't an implied commitment for dinner.
To be fair, this is just a San Francisco thing in general, but even for a date, guys will show up in a hoodie and the free T-shirt they got at their last tech meet-up.
Meanwhile girls have decided that leggings, flats, and a messy bun are completely acceptable. Like, borderline might have Asperger’s and/or calls the uniforms in baseball “costumes” and/or has to leave mid-date to fix some code. And, yes, that person will make more money in a month than you do all year.
