Matchmaking service the Dating Ring has even launched a crowdfunded campaign to send New York's single women to meet all of San Francisco's "eligible bachelors." You want numbers? That's the (ballpark) number of men who have approached me, a single 30-year-old woman, since I moved here almost two years ago.
At first, as women do, I internalized the problem ("the glasses are distracting"; "I'm going to the wrong places").
Here's how it works: each day at 12 p.m., male users will receive 21 matches.
Men are then free to peruse the matches and like them or pass on them.
Kevin Lewis, an assistant professor of sociology at UC San Diego, blames the Bay Area's progressive gender norms, with men less likely to believe they need to make the first move.
