But, if I’m to talk about how much dating in San Francisco sucks—and fail to bring up the very real and often negative effect these apps have had on the dating scene—it would be like bringing up how much the 49ers suck, and not even mentioning the disaster that is Jed York.Of course, the problems with (and benefits of) dating apps hold true all over the country, but I’ll venture to say that it is even in SF, because this is where most of the apps are being created. While I definitely know people who’ve fallen in love because of these apps, and are happily together today… I mean, am I crazy (well, yes), or does it seem like people use these apps for validation (just as much, or maybe more?
