5 San Fran Dates You Knew Were Cool Before Anyone Else

July 11, 2018

San Francisco: the happy, hill-y, hipster hub of the nation. Home to hybrid cars, endless bikers, and loads of beanies, every bend and mountainous rise in pavement is full of culture and character.

But the hipster scene can be tough -- with so many people out there trying to to forge their own path, even the artsiest of artsy things can slip into becoming the dreaded “mainstream.” There can only be so many hoodie-wearing, camera bearing people walking around on the street before it just becomes commonplace.

But don’t let this be true for the SF dating scene. Sure, a sail on the Bay or a hike through the woods might seem like an “out of the box” idea at first, but trust us, every entrepreneur-techy-startup person in SF -- and there are a ton of them -- has been there, done that.

Relationships are hard, especially in San Fran where the these techy types like to spend more time coding and building businesses than building relationships. But with the right date, you’ll find the right boo thang in no time. So let us help you with a list of dates you can claim you knew were cool before anyone else. Sayonara, San Fran Bay sail.
