No ... but pointing out this "female surplus" may not be of any use to a 28-35 y/o single male.

So you're saying that you believe that it is women over 50 that responsible for much of the eligible females?

In my observation there are still plenty of single women in their early to mid-late 20s. I see tons around the apartments in South Old Town and in DC. Probably not that many in their 30s though as they're mostly attached at that point and headed for nests in the burbs. They seem to get hitched in their late 20s.

There aren't many women 50-65 who are widows. Those who are single are likely divorced or never married.

I have to laugh when people (usually younger) lump everyone 50 and older together and view them all as senior citizens (not that there is anything wrong with being any age). People who are 54, for example, are closer in age to people who are 35 than they are to people who are 75 and older and much closer to them than to 85 year olds. But not many people group 35 year olds and 54 year olds together.

Even though it's within the half one's age plus seven rule.
