On a recent visit to San Francisco, I learned that a large number of guys do Match.com (as well as Tinder obviously) to get dates.
These are not guys you would consider pathetic or lame but guys who could get dates in the real world. However, they get even more dates on Match.com and the rewards are rather…instantaneous.
On a Wednesday, my friends and I were setting up a round of golf. We called Jim to be the fourth player.
“Jim, can you play on Friday?”, we asked.
“Nope,” he responded, “I’m going out with this girl from Match.” Saturday? “Got a lunch date from Match and then going out with another one Saturday night.” Sunday? “Going on a picnic with a girl from Match.” After the picnic? “Got a dinner date.”
