When I was 15, I successfully infiltrated a girls’ slumber party. In college, I took Interdisciplinary Approach to Dress at 8 am, and was, apparently, the only guy to think of it. Let’s just say that, early on, I had good grasp of the economic concept of scarcity. I’m not single these days, but if I were, Hitwise has told me the dating sites I would be frequenting.

Overall, gender profiles at dating sites are roughly even, being 51 percent male and 49 percent female. But for the young cad looking to improve his chances this Valentine’s Day, there are just a few that give him the full box of chocolates. Like a good marketer, though, he may have to narrow down his demographic.

Dating Sites With Best Female to Male Ratio

1. eHarmony.com: 3.5 to 1

2. LoveAccess.com: almost 9 to 1

3. LocalHookUpz.com: 3.5 to 1

4. SeniorPeopleMeet.com: 4 to 1 (providing death rates remain constant ;-)

5. Chemistry.com: 3.5 to 1

6. BBWDateFinder.com: almost 4 to 1 and gaining

7. CatholicMatch.com: 3.5 to 1 except on Sunday

8. LatinAmericanCupid.com: 3.5 to 1

9. DontDateHimGirl.com: 4 to 1 (and probably best if it stays that way)

10. SugarDaddie.com: 3.5 to 1

And if it’s girls he’s looking for, there’s more than one reason to stay away from sites that are predominantly visited by males. Not only is there a lack of females, but everybody else there is gay. There are a couple, though, he can visit if he’s looking for a foreign girl.

Top 10 Dating Sites With Worst Female to Male Ratio

1. Manhunt.net: 1 to 9

2. Adam4Adam.com: almost 1 to 9

3. Gay.com/personals: 1 to 9

4. WorldGayMen.com: 1 to 9

5. Globaladies.com: almost 1 to 9

6. Blossoms.com: almost 1 to 9

8. FilipinaHeart.com: almost 1 to 9

9. LoveMe.com: almost 1 to 9

10. Gaydar.co.uk: almost 1 to 100

But for the Don Juan who likes competition and fishing from the largest pools, there are the traditional, popular options – the hip places on the Web where you’ll definitely have to bring you’re A-game.
