Id say about 5 - 10% of all women are dataeble to me. It can't be 50%, if that were true that means that 1 in 2 women i could date. Thats not really realistic in my opinion. If id go outside right now i couldnt see myself dating half of the women i come across. More like maybe 10 in 100 women, or slightly less. 10 in 100 women is 10%, thats more realistic in my opinion. If id go outside and i see 100 women at least 10 of them would be to my liking enough for me to want to date them. I dont think it would be 1%, thats like 1 in 100. Thats not practical anymore. Around 5 to 10% is good for me 10 out of 100 women seems like a large number, but thats okay i need some variety to choose from, 10% is narrowed down enough. What about you?

And that's a generous amount.
If we eliminate the guys I'm not attracted to enough for sexual arousal, it's like about 10-15%.
But then we take into account personality traits, and I'm super picky with that: honest, kind, funny, intelligent (not a requirement, more of a bonus) loyal, romantic, shared interests, like video games, science, cat/animal lover is a requirement, low SES, no STDs, not an addict
And now we're left with like about 1% of guys lol up to 5% if I'm lenient (like I guess he doesn't have to love science if he can make it up by being extra/old school romantic).0

I have a checklist of perfectly reasonable attributes I'd desire in a woman. I'd want her to be mildly attractive (to the extent where I'm capable of being sexually aroused by her), single w/o baggage (children from prior relationships), honest (not a cheater), intelligent (not retarded- IQ 100+), level-headed (sane and rational, as opposed to being insane), clean (of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, STD's etc), non-bigoted (not inherently racist, religiously discriminatory or gender-biased), not a gold-digger, in the right age range (16-30) and all the rest of it. And after calculating the percentages of all the women in the world who possessed each of these attributes, I dishearteningly found that the percentage of people who'd be 'dateable', in the real world, would actually be less than 1 in a hundred MILLION. Personal compatibility, sexual compatibility, shared values, shared goals, shared interests; either none of these things matter, and you have to abandon literally all preferences and standards with regards to women, or you'll have no realistic hope of finding anyone, even after searching through all of the members of the opposite sex which the average man will manage to encounter for more than three seconds over the course of his entire lifetime (no more than 100,000 individuals).0
