San Francisco Dating Pool Shrinks Due to The Dating Ring

Sorry single-straight ladies of San Francisco, the dating pool just got a little smaller -- meaning, the kiddie pool you got to choose from is now a tea cup.

If you'll remember, back in March we shared the horrible crowd-sourcing idea from The Dating Ring, in which single-straight ladies were practically dying in New York out of lack of dates. And then they got in their heads that San Francisco was this untapped gold mine of potential suitors -- that somehow the women of San Francisco were keeping it a secret? That we were just walking around with a suitor on each arm?

Well, to our disbelief, they've made their fundraising goal, and are flying out 16 single ladies to go on dates with single-straight San Francisco men, according to Yahoo.

This quote from the article made us cringe and gag at the same time: "As the HBO show, Silicon Valley, continually points out, the XX chromosomes are needed out on the West Coast."

Right. That's exactly what the Bay Area needs, a New York lady to date some guy who has been sitting in a dark room since last week doing endless lines of code. Go ahead, have fun on your video game date!

All kidding aside, who are these guys the women are flying in for? Check out a portion of the email one potential suitor received: "So now we need you handsome geniuses to let us know if you are available to go on dates and parties with NYC women that weekend, and which days you are available."

How romantic!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
