I was born and raised in San Francisco and I had turned 30 couple months ago. I had never had a date and relationship once in my life. I been on dating sites like POF and OkCupid to find women in the Bay Area and no success there. Women on the streets are unapproachable they don't really look at you and I can bet my ass she would not want to talk to me. Then one day I search online for gender ratio in the San Francisco Bay Area and found there are far more single men here than women. This explains why I never had any success because of the high competition for women. I read that bars in SF are like 2 single women to every 9 single women. SF dating scene tilts far into women favor making them to be very picky and decisive.
You can review this website about the gender issue here.
I had given up with SF dating given how horrible it is for single men such as myself I have decided its time to go looking outside of the US. I joined a international dating site and I have had some success so far. I have gotten several views and even taking the initiative to message me first. I saw a Russian woman view my profile and did not message me. I decide to message her and we began sending messages to each other and now we chat on Viber. I met her couple weeks ago. I think I'm going to go forward with international dating I believe my odds are much better than in the US. Also the US in general have more men than women which overall makes dating here quite challenging which mean some men such as myself will always be lonely, so going to another country where women are plentiful sounds like a better option. As for San Francisco I'm done with the city, too hard to date here. Major women shortage here and the statistics don't lie.

I have tried online dating but am a bit skeptical with it mainly because half the fun of dating is being around the person you are interested in. Their expressions when you do certain things, their reaction when you say certain things, they way you two physically connect (chemistry) if any. So much time invested on long calls, video chats, texts and when you meet up - its either you gel/vibe with each other or not. Its a hit or a miss but it is worth the shot if you find the right person.
Just be careful and watch out for those people who catfish others. Good luck.0

I think it's a good idea to start looking into dating foreign women. I'm western counties there tends to be a bottom 10% or so of guys who are completely screwed with women, whereas in poorer countries being from a rich first world country will likely make up for whatever other traits you lack. If you are 30 and haven't been on a date you may as well try this.
Be very careful about meeting foreign women online though. There are always risks meeting someone off the internet and these will be magnified if you are on the other side of the world and don't even speak the language, it makes you a very easy target to be robbed or scammed.
I think it's a good idea but you need to be incredibly cautious before meeting anyone.1
