Ratio of Men to women on POFPage 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I bet this has been asked before but can someone give me an idea of what the ratio of men there are to women on POF? I think it is a great site but the looks of some favorites lists women have I would bet there are 10 men to every woman here.


Any thoughts people?

Dude, some women's lists contain female friends as well. You can't go by their favorites lists!

Try doing your regular search but don't login as yourself. Do a search as a guest - woman searching for a man and see if you get the same number of hits as you do when searching for women in your area.

LMAO!
good lord don't go by that!
I only have 6 fav's... I'm new thats my excuse
4 are women.
2 are male friends... FRIENDS

So don't go by the fav lists!

Now i have to admit,,,,, if i see a guy with lots of fav's. and no roses left....
Then i Figure he has one or more people he is seriously chatting up.
Unlike women, most women wouldn't sent it to the same sex, just because they
are a good friend.

But as for the ratio, its a great question, would be interesting to find out for sure.

Worldwide? Couldn't say. Locally? Could care less, really. I suspect the number of guys who have added any given woman to their favourites list and have actually exchanged more than a couple of emails with her is probably one in ten or more...

I think I see what you're getting at, though. Noticing that a woman you're interested in contacting is already on tens or hundreds of favourites lists does tend to give the impression that it's futile to bother contacting her, because her time is likely already monopolized by replying to all of her supposed suitors and stalkers and whom ever else. Judging by the favourites lists numbers, the apparent level of competition in piquing her interest seems rather daunting. However, it's more likely that she simply hasn't removed herself from anyone's favourites list since joining, for what ever reason. If she's on, say, a couple of hundred lists and is still active on this site, you're probably safe in guessing that she hasn't found what she's looking for yet - unless she's using this site to collect online penpals.

I normally go a different route, using the link in the matches page that shows those who haven't received an email in the last twenty-four hours. You might be pleasantly surprised to discover whose profile appears on there, regardless of how many favourites lists they're on.

Well, just reading here I learn a lot!!! All my matches are the same, day by day, gets kind of boring...So I started up fresh with a new profile, and guess what, hardly any response. I am not worried about how many ladies or gentlemen are here, but would like to see the new members listed!! Is there an option for that? Anybody knows?

I have no idea what the ratios are, but I do know that regardless of how you change your search parameters, etc.(within reason), more or less the same collection of profiles keep popping up. Who is "local" is the most important thing to me. Unfortunately, distance and age range aren't really good at narrowing the field of who you'd be interested in, so it all comes down to a case of patiently waiting and watching. That being said, I don't think the ratios matter. The way people are, there could be 1 of you and 500 potential partners, and the one that's Just Right still may not be there. Patience!

I have many on my favourite list - but that's because I host patio night. Over 50 are patio hoppers and the majority of the rest are friends. Can't judge anything from the fav. lists.

LMAO nascar - you are an awesome plethra of data!!!

Hey why does it really matter?? 'cause when ya go to parties the boys stand on one side of the room and the girls on the other - just like highschool!!!
The only guy that's gonna win is the one who mingles and gets into that swarm of women and gets into an actual conversation!!!
So if the ratio were dead even - unless you take dating head on, it's all meaning less!!
