I've been around the block too many times, and I just can't help noticing that this topic comes up for pretty much new industry. Well, not to mention meeting people in taxis.

Also, I noticed that this line that the author wrote makes me feel so old. She is experimenting dating people in "real life."

"Inspired by their success stories, I decided to see if I could find a Lyft Bae of my own. A bit about me: I recently turned 26 and am very single. I’m active on the dating apps—mostly Hinge—and while I’ve asked people out from behind the safety of my screen, I’ve never been bold enough to actually do it in real life. So what could wrong?

    I've had people interested in the person that they shared a ride with. Both times one male one female felt awkward and never said a word. After I dropped the person off they said something to me. Not much I could do for them. I did end up picking up the 1 girl a few weeks later. Told her that on our last ride the male she shared the ride with was interested in her. I find out she was only 16 yrs old. I was shocked and I am sure the guy that was interested wouldnt been shocked also. Never took a request again from that McDonalds as she shouldnt even be in an Uber without an adult. Thankfully I hadnt done anything to try and hook them up. However I learned never assume the riders you pick up from work are over 18 even if its 2am. She was in full McDonalds uniform with baseball hat she looked older than 16.  Normally 16yr olds cant work after 10pm/12am (forget which time) during the week (school nights). Learned my lesson on screening riders better. It does suck this is our resp…

    I've had people interested in the person that they shared a ride with. Both times one male one female felt awkward and never said a word. After I dropped the person off they said something to me.

Learned my lesson on screening riders better. It does suck this is our responsibility as a driver though. 

    I also have picked up 2 female riders on different nights who happened to be my sons good friends "booty call". So very awkward:) Once I discovered where they were going I asked how they knew Mike or Jarred.  Explained to the girls that I knew Mike & Jarred they are my sons good friend. I've known them since they were 14 (25 now). Thats when the questions started does he have a gf? No of course not (yes, but I am not telling you that), is he a good guy? Yes, wonderful (but not tonight as his gf probably doesn't know you are coming over). I ran into this 2X, i now know just to keep my mouth shut especially since they can rate me up to a month after the ride:) It has been the topic of many conversations when Mike & Jarred are over. I told them they are going to have to start paying me to keep my mouth shut. I would make more $ being quiet than I would driving their one night stands to their home. Funny thing is both girls tipped me when normally young girls riding pool dont tip. Now after posting this it could turn into a lucrative business. Ride plus tip, hush $ from the guys. 

    I don't see finding love in an Uber or Lyft happening often but you never know. Purposely looking for it on a rideshare trip, save your money. There has to be better places to meet people.

    Sure, but you can also find love in a bar, walking down the street, on the bus, really anywhere...
