with every disappointment it’s a little more difficult to stay positive. Instead of sorority houses, they’ll troll bars every weekend with that tired mentality when it comes to women. ”, so maybe my outsider perspective might be worth a thing or two.Where Daisy wrote a humor piece—a listicle of sorts—indiscriminately throwing jabs at men, women, techies, artists, vagrants, and burners; Bryce directly targets women and blames them for San Francisco’s painful dating scene. V.1's first point: Women In SF Are Just Not That Attractive — City of 7’s.In column 1, you wrote the number of the guy you're dating, in column 2 his name, and in column 3, what you ranked him on scale from "Maybe, let's have one more drink" to "Never in a million years" (no joke, it said that on the scale).After mingling at the bar for a bit, we all sat down at a long table, where there was an empty chair next to each woman.In Bryce’s V.2, he says that all but one of the women he solicited feedback from found it offensive, but let’s be honest here, Bryce: you don’t leave this kind of huge bold caveat at the very top of V.1 unless you know full well its content’s effects on “female(s) living in SF” reading it: Gross exaggerations and generalizations (and terrible writing (sic throughout all his quotes, by the way)) aside, V.1 is at best an advice guide for women to let that nice guy tip his fedora into her life, and at worst a self-conflicting confused sexist rant.

Dating in San Francisco is hard—no single person denies this.
