Beatin' the odds
Beatin' the odds
Nice song by Molly Hatchet, but real applicability here.
Do y'all go to the "browse" menu much? Do you notice that, about anywhere you look, there's this 10-1 ratio, or worse, between "men seeking women" and "women seeking men"? In some states, it's closer to 15-1.
Even the dumbest Las Vegas junket-addicted gambler, even after six hours of free casino drinks, wouldn't bet on odds that rigged.
And, don't think this has something to do with repressed American sexuality or something.
In France, the ratio is 40-1. In Germany, it's 50-1.
So, women, you need to be telling your sisters, whether literal or "sisters," they need to get on over here. Or else we need to speed up that human cloning research. Or, option 3, invent the right psychoactive drug to change the female mindset about this.

Ok...so we develop a magic pill....psychoactive? drug....to change the female mindset...|
I'm curious...what mindset would you want to change?

Well, my dear Fantasy (and take that double entendre anywhere you will), I don't know the mindset. I'm going to take a stab at it.|
I believe it's basically biological more than cultural. That's why I pointed out that the male-female ratio is even worse (from the mail POV) in supposedly "liberal minded" France than here. But I don't believe it's totally biological either.
I guess it's part-and-parcel of the old "hunter and hunted" slice of human nature.
At the same time, the fact the ratio is four times worse in France than here -- and four times worse even in "free love" SWEDEN than here -- says that part of it is also cultural. (Let's put it this way, in Sweden, on here, there are more **men** seeking men than **women** seeking men.
THe mindset needs to be changed for more women that:
1. It's OK to take the first step;
2. It's OK for that step to be fairly big;
3. It's OK for that step to be outrightly and boldly assertive.
And, this isn't something about the Internet in general. Earlier this year, according to the latest estimates, the number of female users in the U.S., at least, caught up with the number of male users.
Ergo, a reasonable conclusion is that the male-female difference is not Internet sites in general, but "this type" of Internet site.
So, biologically, the quick fix, I guess, would be to give more women a shot of testosterone right in the butt. (I volunteer to play doctor as needed.)
