Oversimplification, but I think the key is to remember it's a dating app and not necessarily an instant relationship app. There's an inherent pressure to treat it like a video game and try to "win". But really, it's just putting you in touch with people you can go out and have fun with when and if you want. Even though I'm basically a misanthrope, once I got used to the weirdness of online dating (stay off my lawn, dammit!) I actually had a lot of fun meeting some nice...
I think that gets to one of the many difficulties here - the lack of consistency or clarity in how we use various terms. For someone's answer to your question to be meaningful, you'd both need to be using the same definition of "risk". Cash is generally considered "low risk" as an asset class because its nominal value is fixed (or if we're talking money market funds, say, the risk of breaking the buck, while not absolutely zero, is very low).

But I used to work there, so apply to my comments whatever bias discount you feel appropriate.

He may be the only one of us who isn't.
So much for the saga's tradition of realism.
