I came across my post on Cyprus dating from last November.Â Immediately, I wanted to see how things changed.Â Here is an updated screenshot:
Before:Â 52 men and 4 women
Now:Â 37 men and 15 women
What does this mean?Â Well, there are a few ways to look at it.Â Here are my takes:
- Dating got better.Â The ration of men to women is approaching 1:1 – the ideal for both sides.
- Dating got worse.Â The total number of people decreased from 56 (52+4) to 52 (37+15).
- These whole stats are fishy.
The first two points are rather obvious.Â What’s with the third one?Â I don’t know.Â Somehow, I feel that a magic number – 52 – present in both takes isn’t just a coincidence.Â SPAM?Â Fake accounts? Inactive accounts?Â There are many reasons that could have caused a drop in male profiles and growth in female ones…Â I’m not going to speculate on this.Â At least publicly.
Instead, I suggest we look for stats on this matter somewhere else.Â Â Alexa traffic statistics for Cyprus suggests that AdultFriendFinder.com is #42 in the top visited web sites.Â Being a married person, I’m not much of a dating person, so I don’t know of any other dating sites in that list.Â Let’s look at what they have to offer on the statistical front.
15,462 Listings in Cyprus
Men seeking MenÂ Â Â 481 Listings
Men seeking WomenÂ Â Â 8,049 Listings
Women seeking MenÂ Â Â 241 Listings
Women seeking WomenÂ Â Â 238 Listings
These numbers are almost scary!Â The best strategy for a men seeking women here would be to sneak around through the gay-lesbian side, rather than to compete against 8000+ guys for a woman.Â Whatever…
