Married, attached, single or --- ?

So after one of those conversations the other night, the single guy friend I was with laughed and said, "Now you're really not going to introduce any of your friends to me, right?"

To which I protested that it wasn't anything he'd said that would deter me, but that I didn't have that many single female friends in the first place --- or single friends at all, I thought out loud.

So today I decided to count them.

Out of 265 contacts in my cellphone:
  • 109 are attached (either married or seeing someone seriously),
  • 14 guys and 22 women are single,
  • And there are 12 that I'm not sure of their current status.
The rest are work acquaintances (35), who don't count because I don't socialise enough with them to introduce them to friends, and contacts for restaurants and other services (55). (I realise the numbers don't add up to 265, so I must've miscounted slightly somewhere.)

So about 70% of my friends/relatives are not-single and about 23% are single. I always had the impression that I knew more single guys than women, but it turns out that the reverse is true.

Now I'm wondering, is all this "normal" for someone in my demographic?

Single guy friend said the same thing to me too. Hmmm... and no, I think my statistics would come out very similar to yours.

you actually went to that length to help a friend who needs a girlfriend?

serendipity > No lah, I just became curious after that conversation. I'm still not introducing any of the 22 single friends to him --- because I don't think any of them are a match, plus it's so dangerous to introduce single friends to each other with that intention. *shudder* I'll stay out of it, thank you very much.
