men outnumber women on dating sites Fact? or Myth?
Posted: 5/8/2009 6:04:14 PM
im gonna also throw it out there that many women cheat and they do so with the same type of man. Its the alpha male being stretched thin among these women.

A lot of men cheat but many of them actually pay for it. Just look at these men in politics and what they are doing. It's so prevalent but people don't realize it.

So since these women are all going after the same guy it means theres much less women in general for the rest of us.

This is not an easy question to tackle because like a lot of people said it partly depends on geography and age groups and the type of dating site. If your a male living in Alaska you clearly don't stand much of a chance for obvious reasons. If your a male on a millionare matchmaker site, you are in good standing. PlentyOfFish will have more men than women because its a free site that tends to attract men looking for sex or men who wont even spend the 50 dollars on a more professional site like match.com ... Clearly men out number women, but by how much depends on these factors.

If you consider all age groups then It looks something like 60% men and 40% women. But considering there are more women in later age than men are and more women are being born, it would suggest that more men than women are signing up for online dating. And dont forget, a lot of these sites are clever enough to put up fake profiles of attractive women. Like another poster said, there are more men with social defects than there are women . Plus the fact that some men can't and will not approach a girl in public and lack the experience to navigate the dating pool.

Now for the singles in their 20's the women have a biggest advantage of them all. They are desired by all age groups of men in many various geographical locations. They are looking at 10 men for every 1 woman. When women hit the age of 40 the tables have turned and by the time they hit 50 they are in the same boat men were in their 20's. Thats when they end up going to speed dating sites and find no men worthy of their time and hence they stay single. They rather be single than date a loser.
