For every 120 single men who are in their 20s, there are 100 single women in the same age range.
The story changes drastically when we look at people over 65. Beyond 65, there are 33 single men for every 100 single women of the same age range. I guess all that extra spending for Valentine’s day takes a toll.

Edited to add: Okay, I understand why ECF doesn't want discussions of illegal substances. However, to completely forbid even the mention of an illicit drug is kind of silly.
