    Seinfeld had an episode discussing the "date-able" population. I think their figures were a bit higher than yours, but it's still an interesting topic.

    Thank goodness good-looking guys leave some of those women for the rest of us ugly guys.

    appealing is a whole lot different than attractive. attractive is maybe 1 in 50.

    Well, in my world there were only two types of girls back in the day:
    Fun girls and nice girls.
    Nice girls got to meet mom.

    They are all pretty when you turn out the lights.

    We thought long and hard about this. Our analysis was that "1" is the subject of the sentence. Since "1" is obviously singular, the verb choice of "is" seems correct.

    This what you are concerned about?

    Well, if you live in the dark that is probably satisfying enough.

    That depends upon what your definition of ”is” is...

    I married a woman that was both attractive and appealing. Any woman that can put up with the crap i do has to be moved into whole different category of sainthood.

    And how would the women rate the men? Lower or higher?

    Empirically, the ratio has to be much lower... like closer to 1.1 to 1 or you wouldn't have such a high portion of people in a "relationship"... and the human race would never have survived...

    Granted, it really is each to their own tastes...

    I know that I'm hideous to look at, and I really don't have any redeeming social qualities, either. My wife must be blind and beyond kind to have settled on me.
