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.

Could be area you live. There are major deviations from 50/50 by city or area. As you hit an age where most people are married or in a relationship it leaves a very skewed dating pool.
are you in a large city or more rural? And what sort of industries if a city?
I've lived in large-largeish cities my whole life, yeah. Philadelphia, New York, Jacksonville, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Daejeon South Korea, and currently Seoul.
