Even after taking a few years off from looking for the right person, I still encounter and remember why it seemed so futile; cause it really appears to be at times lol.. Maybe if I set aside a dollar a day or start a pool with X day being the day I meet that person my luck my increase. Personally I still think the chances of being struck by lightning or winning the lottery are much higher. Let's say, 6.5 billion people on the planet. Half that. 3.25 billion are women. Take off a percentage that aren't interested in men, take off the married ones, take off the ones already seeing someone, ones too young, ones too old (I say within 5 years younger or older than myself), and you're looking at..we'll say 1.5-2 billion give or take. Take a fraction of that, for those that are interested in bhm and you'll find the the available pool that I might have a chance with. (and by chance I mean something meaningful, if it was just a fling or something i'd be looking at craigslist). I totally don't believe in the "there is someone for everyone" concept. I think some of us find a good match and some of us get lucky and find the perfect one that fits in every way possible. It's all one big dice roll and lemme tell ya, I for one get bored with rolling snake eyes every throw.
