    I live about and hour and a half outside of San Francisco. Where I live, it's a small gay community and I feel like there is very little out here for me. I've come to the conclusion to meet an attractive, educated guy, I need to start putting myself out there and going to San Francisco to meet new people. Is that a wise choice?

    That seems like a good option. I just moved back East after four years in San Francisco. One thing I can say is that SF is a thriving gay culture for dating, many guys forgoing the idea of a relationship for the "dating life," but the same can be said of any population. Jump in and enjoy!

    Go for it bud! SF is a vibrant city and you will meet various characters, not just educated attractive men.

    Only downside is that to SF guys, anything south of Burlingame or between Oakland and Tahoe might as well not exist. If you want to date an SF guy, go for it, but realize that the probability he'll be coming over to see you is pretty slim. I'm about an hour south (by SJ) and I've tried and given up on dating SF boys. I have great friends and I like to visit, but to date someone, you need more access than that.

    Of course it's a wise choice. Anything that expands your options is a wise choice. Keep in mind, though, that a lot of people in San Francisco don't own cars because you don't really need one here and it can be a nuisance to park them unless you have the great fortune of finding an apartment with a dedicated parking space. So, that's going to cut down a lot on your chances for reciprocation.

    I just want to start dating. I'm ready now but where I live it's so small and everyone knows everyone and all gay guys will talk and blah blah blah. I just want to have fun without the provincial limitation. I'm not just limiting myself to SFC, I've considered going to Sacramento, San Jose, etc. A good hour and a half radius around me. But thanks for all the advice you guys. I'll keep that in mind on my adventures in big city dating!
