So I decided to try my hand at dating with convenience and nonmonogamy / borderline polyamory in mind.
I finally saw and experienced what I was missing out on.
Basically, whether you are looking for romance, love, friendship, information, emotional support or just to connect with people you share something in common with, you are in the right place!

In a time of sugar babies, sugar daddies and beyond, if the person is content with spending their money to make you happy, then go with it.
My date recently dropped his Am Ex Black Centurion Card at dinner without skipping a beat.

I had a hairstylist in the city once tell me that one of the perks of the guy she was seeing was the fact that he owned his own house.
Back in So Cal, where I lived previously, I was surrounded by friends on the marriage and baby path (no thank you! But in San Francisco, I saw a whole different side of dating.
I’ve met two different types of men here: those who are too busy to even think about socializing (unless it’s with an executive) and those who date with no strings attached, i.e., they’ll bang anything that moves.
In a city where time is money and convenience is king, here’s why convenience relationships — dating someone because of ease, geography, money or their access to resources — can be an amazing thing. I love being as far as possible from the screaming sirens constantly running down Market Street and the insanity of the bar crowds.
But do you know how hard it is to convince someone to come to my ’hood, let alone hang out in the wee hours of night? That’s why it’s amazing when you click with someone who lives in your neck of the woods. It’s hard to act on a spur-of-the-moment rendezvous if you’re broke, don’t have a car, can’t afford a Lyft ride to the other side of the city or don’t want to ride the bus for 45 minutes to get to their place.
I’m all for being an independent woman and making — and spending — my own money.
