It seems like every single woman I meet is taken, whereas loads of guys aren't.
If I look down my Facebook friends list like 80-90% of women are in relationships, whereas around 40-50% of guys are.
If you look on online dating there is vastly more men looking to meet someone than women. The same is true for other places you'd meet other single people, like bars or nightclubs.
It really feels like there is 5 or so guys competing for each single woman, which is probably why unattractive guys like me find it so difficult to find anyone. I've been actively looking for a relationship on and off for 2 years now, its getting a little ridiculous.
Why are women so much more in demand than men?
I can see why this occurs in casual relationships (ie one night stands, friends with benefits, ect), since so many more men are interested in these than women. But isn't the majority of both genders interested in dating?
Is there a group of women who just hide away and don't attempt/want to date at all? Or are there just more men for some other reason?
Most Helpful Guy
There's about an equal number of men and women.
Guys tend to put themselves out there more when they're single.
Plenty of women say they are in a relationship online to avoid all the guys trying to hit on them.
Also guys are probably more inclined to say they're single and seek out other prospects while actually being in a relationship. Well, girls may equally seek out other prospects but they're far more discrete about it at least3
