Straight Men in San Francisco are Desperate for Dates

An NYC woman pleads to have a date in San Francisco

Are San Francisco straight men that hard up for a date that they need women to be flown in from elsewhere?

Apparently, according to one dating site: the Dating Ring. Currently still in the fundraising stage (Really, we're fundraising for dating sites now?), a post on SFGate notes "Love-lorn young ladies can reserve a spot on the trip by simply anteing up $1,000, which will net them a flight, housing, three dates and two parties."

Don't make us gag.

Judging from the comments on our recent post disputing NerdWallet's findings that San Francisco is the best place to be a single, straight woman, we're in good company with our opinions about San Francisco's straight-dating scene -- or lack there of.

Who are these men they're flying women in for? And who are these women who are leaving NYC to find a date across the country?

One girl they interview says, "Dating in New York is the worst. I mean the number problems in New York is that all men are gay or awful."

Um, excuse us, but you do realize there are tons of gay men in San Francisco, right?

It doesn't matter anyway, as Less Than One points out, you'll likely still only find a handful of people attractive -- in any city you're in.

Anyway, good luck with those dates!

Come on really! Hard pressed for a date. Try a matchmaker. They usually have a ton of women that are ready to meet guys the right way....(aka) not at a bar. A good matchmaker in SF from what I've heard is EmLovz. Her site is emlovz.com/emmatch

The only thing that truly stops a gold digger is the old vasectomy/prenup combo.  Plenty of 30 something divorcees with 10ish year old kids running around in my town with really nice cars and nannies,

It's a scam to get investors

And women line up for the chance to connect with a wealthy man, at least till the property can be divided equally and she can resume the "lifestyle she has been accustomed to" sans nerd ex.


Guys, just pull it instead.  Gold diggers will leave you with the shaft

Bay Area is soo easy for straight men. If you're a straight man in the Bay Area and you can't find a date, you're beyond hope.

Not so my friend. Enjoyed some great women in SF,but mostly bitchy uptight feminists. Surrounding areas people were more real.

When I lived there, it was the straight WOMEN who couldn't find a man to date because they were mainly Gay, the men had their pick.

Who can get along a crazy liberal feminist! no man can take that sort of abuse. Yea go for a third world chick who will cook and clean and treat you like a master.

Uh...are they counting the homeless population? I'm on the N Judah right now and of the 20 people closest to me 13 are female and only 1 of the men is under 35 (and not homeless, I.e. Eligible?)

Maybe a self-absorbed generation of people with impossibly high standards is to blame, and not the numbers.

Susan, if you like effeminate guys, you're just a lesbian in denial. Cassandra has the right idea and so does my girlfriend: women like real men.

Hilarious. Have they seem the M - F ratio numbers for ALASKA? Would they go?

Cassandra Luvv I think the inverse applies as well. SF and the bay area have women with male tendencies that are a bit of a turn-off for the guys.

"Dating" is such a lame concept. Getting laid in SF, though, that's easy regardless of sexual orientation.

SF is filled with 900,000 people. Tons of them are single. I live here. If you want to meet someone, you can. Just be social.

The reason straight SF men are having problems finding women in SF is because they have feminine voices and feminine tendencies. Women don't like that.
