    A disturbing info from Men's Health Magazine

    According to the mag, there are seven single women for every square mile in America. I know that much of American soil is unoccupied, but this is a disturbing news. Seriously, 100% of I met are with somebody. I don't think I've actually talked to a single girl for a while. All the women I encountered, I mean all of them, were either married or in relationship.

    So I guess the article is genuine.

    Well, there are over 3.5 million square miles in the U.S. That ends up as about 25 million single women. Honestly, once I manage to get a career started, I kinda like my chances.

    Wikipedia says the population density of the USA is 31 people per square kilometre.
    Converting to the imperial system, this gives us 80.3 people per square mile.
    Assuming half of all Americans are female, this means 40.1 women per square mile.
    7 divided by 40.1 is 0.175, therefore, if Men's Health Magazine is to be trusted, 17.5% of American women are single.

    That's a little less than 1 in every 5. Doesn't seem all that low, although these numbers are incredibly rough. Now if you had the breakdown by age, we could then apply the "divide by two and add seven" rule or something like that to determine a better value based on those within your approximate age range. Assuming that the same number of adult women are single at any given age, we can apply that rule and get a result somewhere between 1 in 10 and 1 in 15. Still not terrible. Probably closer to 1 in 10 because you're still on the younger end of the spectrum and it seems pretty safe to say that there are more singles in their 20's and 30's than in their 70's.

    Anyway, SCREW STATISTICS. They're too approximate and simple to be much use in a case like this anyway. I just did all that because I like the math. For all you know these single women could be looking at the stats for single men and having similar worries. Forget about it.

    If she is single you have to compete with the whole world. If she is taken, you only have to compete with one person.

    You're welcome.

    I usually tell a guy I'm not attracted to that I'm taken.

    If she is single and she's the kind of girl who would leave a good relationship with her current boyfriend for you. Then you are ALWAYS at risk of having someone steal her from you. Hitting on a girl who has a guy is seriously low class anyways.

    Right. I don't want to steal a girl from a guy. I am a very non-confrontational person. And I don't want any drama, either.

    In the United States, there's an average of only seven single women between the ages of 20 and 44 per square mile

    I remember hearing a few years ago that in Alaska the ratio of men to women (single or otherwise) was something like 13:1. The women had a saying along the lines of "the odds are good, but the goods are odd"

    I don't really see a chick with a boyfriend as "unavailable" I prefer to see her as "in need of convincing"

    Time to put more butter on hubby's potatoes.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    gogidolim As always the problem arises with the imperial system of measurement. If you convert to metric you'll find there are no single women in the US...

    too bad they cant be geographically spread out like that,

    if you are young and the girl of your dreams is in a relationship, all you need is patience and good timing.
