Idk about you, but there is a shortage of young men who want to remain permanently childfree and who are Christian. Now that's hard to find

Go to any club or bar in Virginia Beach or Norfolk and you'll see swarms of guys, both military and non-military and some foreign military too, with only a sparse number of girls.

I pray that any place is better than here.
Uh oh. Big mistake buddy. Just check out the picture i posted a in this discussion. DC has a surplus SAUSAGE. And if you think you are escaping miltary men... think again. Since the end of the Iraq war more and more military men have moved here. We have marine barracks, walter reed and the pentagon. You've been warned.

Actually I fit those requirements, but I'll admit that I'm certainly a minority in that.


I'm skeptical of that chart posted, at least for NC. What it shows about Atlanta is true from what I've seen, however.

I went poor a number of years back, and suddenly attractive white women no longer wanted me. I was rather saddened at first, but then I discovered that attractive Hispanic women like white men too!

If there’s a shortage of men, women, or whatever you’re looking for, try lowering, revising, and reevaluating your standards. I myself waiting too long, but I still have a never-ending supply of women willing to date me. They’re not all eyesores, but I’ve greatly reduced and revised my standards and priorities, as I’ve gotten older, and there have always been women there to fill that gap. Granted they’re sometimes ten years older or twenty-five years younger, but they’re out there.

Latest Info: 2010 census: US getting older - US news - Life - msnbc.com

Over the past decade, the number of men in the US has increased. The overall male/female ratio in the US is now 96.7, compared to 96.3 in 2000. There are more men living to old age now, or maybe more male immigrants.

There are more men than women up to age 34.

New census numbers show:
  • The male-female ratio in the U.S. increased to 96.7 from 96.3 in 2000, reflecting the narrowing of the female advantage in overall population.
  • Broken down by subgroups, men were more numerous than women among those 34 and younger as more boys than girls tend to be born.

A new Gallup poll finds that America isn't much different from Asia or India: Most parents prefer sons, not daughters.

TODAYMoms - Americans prefer sons over daughters, poll finds

This kind of preference, in 2011, in the US, won't do much to calm some posters' fears of a looming wife shortage.

This is good advice. In the past, I've attended some "singles events" but i no longer do that, as it is an ineffective way to meet women that I would interested in spending together.

Really, yet, every time a singles mixer is scheduled at a Meetup, the #'s approach 100 in RSVP's. One coming up in August with a stunning amount that outnumbers the typical social club Meetup. If not that, then it's around 50-ish.

Does that mean they are desperate?

It's 2018, it's pretty much the in thing to do these days. Calling it desperate is such an early 2000s' thing
