There is not a great nightlife scene.” Sure there are hotter girls, but it doesn’t matter because they’ll never match with you. I’m basically cancelling my hinge subscription and getting off the apps. I will try my luck meeting people thru friends, and if that doesn’t work I’ll leave the Bay Area.

After I got out of school, I dropped the idea until March 2013, when a friend offered to match me up with someone. I was really struck by the concept and thought that if I were interested, other people would be, too. Is it a company that flies people cross-country for blind dates?

When this happens, the anchor may be pulled out of the bottom, and in some cases may need to be hauled up to be re-set.
