29 Eye-Opening Facts About Dating That Will Change The Way You View Relationships

19. Also, you know how those girls on Sex and the City always complained about how there were so many single women but so few single men? That might be true, as the Census suggests. Nationally there are 86 eligible males for every 100 women. However, there are 100 million single people in the US, so one of them has to work out — at least I hope.

20. Side fact that I have no proof to back up: For the gays in the audience, there are 100 bottoms for every top. This isn’t true, even though it could be, but goddamn it feels that way sometimes.

21. A survey in Glamour Magazine found that most women don’t want to buy sex toys online. 66% preferred to do it in person, like shopping for a new dress or a clutch. 61% of those women said the reason was that they found the experience of buying it to be a turn-in in and of itself. The part where your vibrator thrusts inside you all night is just an added, wonderful bonus.

22. As far as sexual fantasies go, ABC reports that the most common is having sex outside — with a whopping 57% of the population saying they’re into that. Only 14% of folks have had a threesome, but 21% of them have thought about it. (IMO, that means 86% of people need to have threesomes.) Less than a fifth of people have cheated on their partner, but much more of them have fantasized about doing so: Almost a third. Just over half of Americans say that they discuss these fantasies with their partners.

    […] In my experience, Iv noticed that we often feel as though we can’t go out without feeling like our personalities and intentions are judged. We feel like we are being judge by what we wear and how we act. Often times, guys assume another person dresses the way she wants to be treated, or because she has certain intentions. This creates a certain stereotype in our community. It causes us to constantly look out for ourselves. This is see when TLC and Chemistry.com found that a woman in a bar will be approached an average of six minutes more quickly if she is wearing more makeup or looks sexier.
