Hi ladies! Sorry if this post is a bit disjointed but I hate leaving really long posts.
What brought me here actually has me feeling a little blue. About 1 year ago I broke up with my boyfriend. I had dated him for 4 years, hoping he would get his act together and propose to me.
He did neither.
In the meantime I dated no-one. Then, just recently, I came across an article that has me worried about my future. It reveals some statistic a dating site has calculated about its own users habits. I turned 30 this year so you can imagine how I felt reading it.
No matter what he's telling himself on his setting page, a 30 year-old man spends as much time messaging 18 and 19 year-olds as he does women his own age. On the other hand, women only a few years older are largely neglected.

we can see that women have more pursuers than men until age 26, but thereafter a man can expect many more potential dates than a woman of the same age. At the graph's outer edge, at age 48, men are nearly twice as sought-after as women
I was hoping these statistics were erroneous - being calculated by someone inept in this department. But I then found out they were done by Harvard mathematicians. To make matters worse, I found this document which seems to confirm the matter: ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting
I know I left marriage late, but my fear now is that the best men are accounted for, and the remainder consist of men with no intention of marriage or children and, without wanting to be mean, men who are single for a reason.
What do you think ladies? I sad
. Please console.
