Dating ration of men to women in chicago

Single women looking for a partner should move to the City of London, while men in search of love have the best chance of finding a girlfriend in Knowsley, in Merseyside, according to a major new study released today which maps the hotspots for singletons across the country.

When there's an excess of marriage-eligible men, research suggests, the dating culture — in which men are traditionally the active ones seeking partners, rather than the other way around — involves more romance, because men must compete for the attention of fewer women.

But when the ratio is skewed toward women, as with the college grads in this study, romantic interaction becomes more about sex, because men are in high demand and don't feel pressured to settle down.

The findings build on work by social psychologist Marcia Guttentag, whose book, "Too Many Women?

The Sex Ratio Question," describes how the balance of men and women has had a profound effect on society, from sexual norms to economic power.

By comparison, Illinois and North Carolina have 36% and 41% more such women, respectively.

In Silicon Valley, which is notoriously male-dominated, women have much better chances of snagging a man.

For a higher proportion of single women live in urban areas while there is a surplus of single men in the countryside.
