I just think you have to get over the fear of making an ass of yourself. When your having that worthwhile conversation with someone make the move, if they shoot you down then hey, you didn't waste years and move on. There are plenty more opportunities to screw up later. I think you can have anything you want but thats just me.

According to the Dept. Of Economic and Social Affairs / UN Stats Division, the world population was 6,671,226,464 total in their 2007 estimates.

That broke down to 3,360,742,758 males and 3,310,483,706 females.

Therefore...

50,259,052 males will be without partners, assuming one-on-one relationships!

That's 50 million males. Worldwide. And THAT'S not accounting for differing percentages from country to country. For example...

In the United Arab Emirates there were 2,966,118 men and 1,414,321 women - that's 210 men for every 100 women. Bad luck, guys!

On the other hand, the Northern Mariana Islands had 36,373 men and 47,464 women - 77 guys for every 100 women. You lucky dudes!

The US, by the way, had 150,508,013 men and 155,318,231 women - slightly in favor of the guys - 97 men for 100 women...

This is true.Those that never had a chance never took a chance.And I have missed a couple opportunities in my time because of that.


You can't control what someone will be like in the future you just have to go with the flow and that is why you need to love yourself and do things for yourself because that way if it comes crushing down you still have your own life.


My friend married for 12 years was crushed last year,he dated a new girlfriend but he insists on having it move to a more serious relationship and now they are broken up.He seems to "need" someone who will commit to him.


I on the other hand live my life and am content for miss "right now" and go with the flow that if I meet someone that I fall in love with then I do but it is not my main agenda,I get what I need in the meantime and I have fun.And frankly I need sex and affection more than a need to be loved.

A portion of those males will be happy to be with other males so the numbers aren't quite as dire for guys looking for gals. We are useful

Dang - I'm sorry - totally missed that.

OK - revised numbers coming in - the Voter News Service Exit Poll said there are slightly over 3 million "gay or lesbian people living in a committed relationship in the same residence". If we double that number for uncommitted folks, we have about 6 million people.

There - we're down to about 44 million men who will never have their Princess. Whew - thanks, A&D - I was worried there for a minute!
