Hey guys,

I don’t have a girlfriend but I don’t *think *there is anything wrong with me, hahaha… but being the mathematician that I am, let’s look to see how many girls exactly would be a match for me 😀

I went onto Wolfram|Alpha and looked up the female population on the planet and got:

**Female population on earth in 2009:**

3,326,000,000

3,326,000,000

But I am looking for a girl who is in North America. Restricting this number to Canada and the United States gives:

**171, 230, 000 girls**

BUT she must also be around my age and preferably younger (or at most 1 year older). Say, from 25-29 years old. That leaves:

**11, 415, 000 girls**

But about half of these girls are already married or in a common-law relationship. Thus, that leaves:

**5, 707, 500 girls**

And further, about *11% of women are not interested in men* (i.e. lesbian or other). That leaves:

**5, 079, 675 girls**

Being a mathematician, I want a girl who is smart. About *85% of the girls in North America are complete dumb asses*, hence the number of girls left is:

**761, 951 girls**

But

I don’t want no ugly kids, and given my appearance, the girl better be

pretty! Only about 15% of the girls fall in this category, thus we get:

**114, 292 girls**

But the girl must also like me. To see what kind of statistic is

reasonable, I went to the local bar and chatted with 10 girls. Then at

the end I asked them if they liked me based on my appearance and our

conversation. Only 1 girl said yes, the other 9 said no (unfortunately

the 1 girl who said yes went home with my friend :-S). Thus, only 10%

of the girls will like me. That leaves:

**11, 429 girls**

Further, I have two sisters and a few other relatives who would fall

into the above categories, and who I prefer not to marry. So taking

away these 10-15 people gives:

**11, 414 girls**

WOW! So in this world there is 11,414 girls that would like me and

would marry me. That’s actually a lot (in my mind). Now if only there

is a way to meet them, hmmm.

I thought it would also be very interesting to see how many GUYS there are for me and compare… you can read that calculation at my next entry:
