The Interactive Singles Map: More accurate, more depressing!
Remember the map of singles in the US that billed New York as a fabled babe mecca, and California as a billion boy beach? I crunched some digits and now we've got one where you can change the age range, adjust for statisticksy things, and just plain have it look a little bit prettier. This map will make any 25 year old boy cry.

I am so serious. He'll bawl for days.

Anyone looking for a software engineer in Boston?

Interesting how the older you go the more available women there are. That 25 year old single boy might cry, but at 35 (if he's not married by then) he'll be happier. Then again, chances of him making it to 35 and still being single look pretty slim, while for (straight) women it just gets worse and worse...

Surely the 25-year-old boy just needs to get together with a 35-year-old girl?

Sweet! Thank you for this, soma!

Oh wait, nevermind, there's 50 guys. Note to self: slider technology + flu meds = cannot brain, total dumb.

For me the issue is finding kinked switchy, atheist/ignostic males of above average intellect, who speak fluent English (or are willing to learn) and are demonstrably sane and disease/addiction free, and fall between the age of 23 and 40. At some point I need to work out how many individuals are in that pool. Mmm, probability math. It’s all fractions. :9
