Here we go again…delving back into reality today with interesting statistics pertaining to the search for love. Here are today’s statistics:
Did you know that…
44% of the adult American population is single. That’s over 100 million people folks, so your odds are actually much better than you think.
On average, there are 86 single men to every 100 single women in America. So, the odds are slightly in favor of men finding a mate. This ratio is a bit better in the Southwest, and in warmer climates such as Texas, Florida, and California, the ratio in some cities actually favors the women.
50% of New York state adults are unmarried, making it the best state for single people. Washington, D.C. actually boasts a 70% single rate, making it the best area (although not a state) for single people. (I can vouch for this statistic!) The states with the worst ratios are Idaho and Utah, with 40% and 41% single, respectively.
You have 15 minutes to make a first impression – if you’re a woman, that is. If you’re a man, you have a little more cushion. Women usually take about an hour to decide if you’re going to have a second date.
Question of the day: Would you relocate your life to have better odds at meeting “the one”?
