Anybody else done the math on this?

50% are gonna be the wrong sex
about 22% age 35-44
of those, about 10-15% are in shape. Maybe not great athletic shape...just from a BMI standpoint
roughly 30% have at least a 4-year degree

Just from that starting point, we're already down to about 0.3% of the population.

It's going to be depressingly low regardless, but I think you may be double-counting a bit. Like, is there any significant overlap between those who fall into the fit and 4-year degree categories?

yeah I thought about that. you're right, I'm simplifying for lack of data granularity.

^^ OK I found some data. I think it was CDC?

4-year degree, at least on average across all ages, is somewhere around 35-40% lower rate of being overweight/obese.

So yeah...that gets us maybe almost to a half percent.

Yeah that sounds about right.

haha I don't really even think about finding a serious relationship. I mean that would be great, but so would winning the lottery. I count it as a win if I find a good looking woman who's fun to hang out with and I manage to keep things going for 2-3 months. After that they always want more commitment, and I just am not wired to bullshit them.
