Man Jose and the dating culture
A commenter on my last post said “San Jose is terrible if you’re single… For some reason SF has a dating culture next to which SJ can’t compare.” A dating culture, huh? I have never thought about it that way.
What makes a good dating culture? Good places to mingle? High concentation of interesting people? A male:female ratio that works in your favor?
As a nerdy girl who likes the geeky guys, I can’t really complain about San Jose. Of course, I am certainly not meeting these geeky guys at bars downtown or at The Brit. I meet them the way I think most of meet people: drunk. No wait, I mean I meet friends’ friends, exes’ roommates, cute foreign interns at work. No wait, I mean…nevermind.
I have picked up a guy only once at a bar, and that was in San Francisco, not San Jose. And he was a fellow B&Ter. So maybe that’s it. Each weekend, we single geeks load up into our cars and drive up to the city to meet other SJers at the latest place-to-be-seen. Is that the San Jose dating culture? And what is it about the San Francisco dating culture that’s so great?
