Why does there seem to be way more single men than single women nowadays if the ratio between the sexes are still nearly equal?

I'm not sure if I worded this question properly, but I tried to. Basically, so many men don't meet modern women's super-high criteria of being "good enough" to date or be in a relationship with. Let's be kind and say 50% of men aren't "good enough" for modern women.

So if half or more of men seemingly aren't dating right now, then why doesn't it seem like half of all women are also single? It seems like only 20-25% of modern single women are available on the market, as opposed to 50-60% of single men.

This is taking into account the extremely high number of non-straight, non-hetero (queer) women that now exist as well, although non-straight women don't seem to greatly outnumber their gay male counterparts.

There's only two logical conclusions that come to my mind: 1) Polyamory, and all the attached men are cheating on their partners with the non-dating women in that missing gap of singles. Or there's way more single women out there than it seems, and we just never hear about them. I sure never do. I just hear women who bounce from one relationship to another, but are never single for longer than six months.
