We're just looking at the total number in the population, without regard to whether you'll ever actually have any contact with them.
I did the math for my unbelievably skewed home town, using mostly state demographic statistics, and some conservative estimates where I couldn't find them, and IIRC I came up with a figure of about 1 in 300 or so women in my age range likely to appeal to me and be available at any given time.
I was on AFF for 3 months, paid for a 3 month gold membership, and the only time I got laid is when I was out of town for work. I just had to let the women feel like they were in control.
At least the girl was hot.craigslist is actually the best place if you're seeking a hook-up. Do you think a girl would be embarrassed if she was caught on a sex site? Most conquests lived outside my town, but i did not mind travelling after work.
Lets assume the ratio at birth is 1.03, and by then you're down to 1.025 to 1. (Given the rates for the population as a whole, that's probably not too far from reality.) So you're down to 1234.5 women (rounding up) available, but 1296.5 men. Now lets assume half those single women are in stable monogamous relationships.
Lets say there are 5000 people in the area who are in that age range. At any given time 62 men will be without a partner. (It doesn't matter what the real figure is, you can still see where I'm going with this). (round however you like, it won't matter give or take) 9.1% of the single unattached male population is going to be left alone.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
And there are a lot more ways the pool gets reduced.
For any one person, the dating pool is only a tiny fraction of the whole..just anyone will do.
I've e-mailed over 600 women on there and got 3 responses all bot's posting links to websites where u pay to talk tothe lady you have selected!! Long story short, try putting up a profile saying you're a guy and see how many people contact you out of the clear blue... No mail to hot mail, but I get "contacts" in the mail box you have to pay for. I have no idea how I ended up at sexsearch(really, honestly) and ended up doing the free profile. I was on sexsearch, being I am an honest guy I didn't want to lead anyone on so I checked it out, but to be honest most of the profiles on there are B/S. Of course I got a few emails of men sending me pics of their lower head... Look on and u will see all likds of crap written by them.
Don't GO NEAR AFF if you have to choose stay here at POF as it's free and if you get a crap e-mail u can just delete it! Of COURSE it's easy for you to find people on there YOU'RE A WOMAN! heck see how many reply to you in a chat room, or even better how many reply to emails you send them, especially on a site like that, real world numbers are like 0, 0 and 0. Mail on Sex Search is bot mail from the server, anybody reading my profile would knowhow to get in touch."And How about Sex Search?? I was just messing around and I posted a one line profile that read 'not currently in a relationship.' Within 24 hours I had 6 emails and I was put on 4 'hotlists.' You can see the supposed pics of the emailers. The one thing they all had in common is that they're pictures were magazine ad quality. I am supposed to believe there are all these hot hot women, who live in my town, who like to take sexually provacative pictures and just can't seem to find anyone to sleep with. ;) I would email them back telling them I was more interested in a picture of their upper head... Of real living breathing women on that site, a survry was done sometime back and for every women on that site, there were 10 men and half of the available women were looking for other women! Can't say if it works or not no one has answered any of my notes that were sent. Hope someone might have better luck than I did here.
BTW, any country with a gender ratio at birth of 1.07 to 1 or higher is a place where sex-selective abortion is practiced), and it takes about 50 years for enough of them to die off (it is more dangerous to be a man) for the male population at that age to equal the female.
