How is that possible, when everywhere i go mainly guys want to meet.
Take this dating site, all the women are telling me their getting hundreds of responses and i get barely any responses.
Go to any club or bar and mainly guys want to meet.
Most Women go to hang out.

Don't know about where you're at, but in Upstate most women are grossly overweight. Too many rednecks, drug addicts, and white trash. Who would want to date that??

Because men are hunters. At least they SHOULD be. If girls keep acting like sloots though, men (uh boys) will sit back and see what falls in their laps.

I totally agree. My ex who was abusive ,a drunk, a gambler, and a cheater was a great catch for his new wife. Even after he got his married girlfriend pregnant, she stayed with her hubby...As for myself, Id rather be alone then be with a man just to have someone in my life.
signed, alone and loving it ..now i can go whenever I want

It could very well be possible for the NYC area. The ratio in Central and Northern NY is 1 woman to every 1.5 men.

I have to say - I am very athletic - poportioned well! It's the guys that are over-weight. I've been on this site for about 2 wks, and I get guys who looks over 50 when I am looking for someone 40-50. And yes - they have to be somewhat attractive. They guys that email me - look like they had fallen out of a tree - I am an intelligent - stable female that has no kids and no drama.

The "OLD RULES" still apply... Women expect men to find them, wine & dine them

It's online, no one sees or hears the messages you send...

So the WOMEN need to take a moment and look around and contact someone if they are interested... and if you're a guy, don't be a JERK and disrespect them if they do !!!

Obesity! Desperation. People want to get more in their next relationship compared to the last so they feel they are moving up rather then starting over. Guys rather smash n dash when women reveal they are looking for a second income not a man in their life

I am a new Yorker and 200.000 cannot be true ,there are very much more than that Ther are a lot of single women who travel from all around the world and head for new York city, they have a lot of rights ,legal or illegal ,they do stay in jobs and some do what ever they have to do to make it here, There is a saying,if you can make it in N Y you can make it any where, marry a same sex to get your papers,what better way ?

Funny because on POF and other dating sites NYC and LA have more like 15 men for every girl. This includes the surrounding suburbs. Women can meet any where so are less inclined to go online. In the street and bars see much more men so that survey must be counting widows who are senior citizens. That would explain it. NYC has one of the largest senior citizen numbers outside of Florida, in fact a lot are snowbirds. Since they out live guys it makes sense that over 65 much more single ladies.Maybe that how they got their numbers? Nyc also has tourists and business travelers who come here who are men in higher numbers than women.Both genders come here ,but their are more men coming.i truly think they were counting all the over 65 widows that are here to get those numbers if it is true.

There was a study done on a different site and women said 80% of men were below average , and the other 20% just average . So basically you have 100% of the women going after the top 20% of the men . Pretty amusing , you ladies can let us know how that works out . Bet the guys in the top 20% having fun . No reason the guys in the top 20% will even think of settling down with so much action .

So much also depends on your location. I live in a very quiet residential area in Queens where it's mostly married couples and families. I have a greater chance of finding a stray cat than a single woman. lol Even in NYC it's possible to feel like there's nobody around.
