It’s 12 days until Valentine’s Day and if you’re on the hunt, there’s definitely still time to find someone to spend it with! What happened to developing a crush, investment, and meet-cutes?For Seattleites who have a busy schedule, recently moved to the city, or just don’t meet new people in their everyday lives, dating can be tricky. I guess it’s the way of the future and I need to come to terms with that.I received 98 messages in 24 hours—at least half weren’t from the Seattle area.

They must message within 24 hours or the match disappears (men can extend one match per day for an additional 24 in the hopes the girl will message him).For example, I met this genuine guy who had just moved here 4 days prior from Chicago.I met an intelligent, funny guy visiting from the Bay Area who is doing amazing genetic research that will impact the lives of millions.PROS: There are a lot more nice-looking, educated, have-their-sh*t-together men on Bumble than Tinder (percentage-wise).People here seemed more thoughtful in their picture choices (less pictures of just landscape and shirtless selfies).
