I was just curious about this and thought it'd be an interesting perspective on how often men THINK women get approached or have clear interest expressed to them.

OK. First, let's define average. It's a wide range for sure, but let's say:

-White (just for simplicity, not racism)
-Average to cute face. Based on headshot alone, would get ranked anywhere from 5 to 7.
-5'3"-5'5"
-About average weight for her height
-About average body type. Works out but not religiously. Good metabolism.
-Fairly social, regularly social. Has a solid group of friends and gets out regularly.
-Lived at college for 4 years
-Frequented bars and clubs, but not a hardcore partier
-Pleasant personality.
-Has had a 'career' where she works in a 'city', goes home to her apartment, goes to the gym, walks her dog, grabs drinks with friends, etc, etc.

Let's say she is now age 30 and still single. Rejections count as turning down a guy at a bar/club, in the street, rejecting her friends, teachers' advances, co-workers, etc, etc. Other women/lesbians do not count for now.

Hookups of any form and dumping, and breakups don't count as rejections. Even a totally drunk regrettable hookup with a total regret in the morning does not count.

I would like to hear answers from GUYS. What's your guess? I know there's variation. Just ballpark it.

I think you may need a hobby.

You appear to have way too much time on your hands

Everyone gets rejected and everyone rejects people. I know I have been in both shoes.

The dude is single and has all the time in the world to over-analyze women.

As a married woman, what the heck are you doing here?

LOLOLOL - my better half is finishing a tennis match, so I'm free to type until it's over. After that, he's all mine, and vice versa

Actually it makes more sense to me that a married woman would hang out here. Home life sometimes lends itself to this site. I'm a married man. If I were single I would never be on this site. I'd be out and about. But I am married so I am home. My wife is making dinner and my kids are watching Epic. And I am here on CD.
