While apps like Bumble, Hinge and The League have helped some find love an informal poll of my Facebook friends resulted in 16 people who confessed to being in a relationship with someone they met on an appmost of the time, dating apps are not that enjoyable.
Plus, being judged solely on looks — which, face it or not, is what dating apps are about — feels very un-San Franciscan. And that le us back to the question at hand: What is it like to interact on the apps in modern-day SF? We end up chatting for two weeks.
