Where is the dating better for a straight woman: San Francisco or the Peninsula?

Hello, recently single 28 y/o female trying to decide between living in the city or the Bay Area peninsula. I will be working from home in the next year. I have about an equal number of friends in both locations, maybe slightly more in the Palo Alto area. The city is much more expensive, and it would probably mean living in a not so central location, sharing a bathroom (which I hoped I wouldn't have to do again in this lifetime), etc. On the other hand, city more fun and meet more people in the city? On the first hand, save more money on rent and spend more money on restaurants with friends in the city on weekends?
Maybe the main reason I'm asking is, people keep mentioning that the city is not a great dating scene for single women ("many gay men! many men who don't want to commit!"), whereas the peninsula is filled with deliciously geeky guys (Man Jose, etc). Anecdotally, how are your single female friends faring in either of these locations?
No, it's obviously not the only consideration, and I actually probably won't be dating for a while anyway, but I am thinking to the future.
