Singles Beget Singles

You’ve been warned: San Francisco is the best city for singles, according to Forbes.

If you take the logical leap, you may find this bit of news to be promising: More single people must mean we’re all on the fast track to committed bliss.

Well, I’m sorry to report that more single people, especially in this town, simply breeds more single people.

Sure, if you’re looking for fun, a massive online dating pool and a super cool vibe (one of the statistics that pushed SF to number one was our “coolness” factor), you’re psyched.

Parent Proofing

Most people living in San Francisco are from some place else. They may move here for different reasons, but one thing remains constant: No matter where you come from, your parents will eventually make the trip out to visit you.

So this means we all have to make the proper modifications to our pads for that inevitable visit by the parental units including, but not limited to, hiding the X-rated paraphernalia, tossing that forgotten pair of undies (that aren’t yours) into the hamper, or throwing open the windows to clear the air of certain odors (not that I’ve had to do any of these things, mind you). I’ve even heard stories of people kicking out their secret live-ins when their parents come to town.
