The quantity of women you email, the quantity you approach in real life. However, from the perspective of a woman, this is unattractive if they should ever know a man approached her because she's a. I recall a good female friend of mine that told me about a former boyfriend that said the reason he approached her was because he did so out of the blue and that he approached to many women, he'd figure she was just next in the running.
He implied she was "just a ", but he saw hera cute girl. This was kind of a turn off for her to find this out, but But "Internet dating is a numbers game" it not a reality, but in a sense kind of a shame that I think the MAIN reason it's a "numbers game" is because women tend to reject, flake out, etc.
It's like it HAS to be a 's game to keep am an from going insane But if women know that this is the case, it makes them feel less special.

It's on the Maths of Love and Sex. Early on one of the panel talks about how being Internet dating is a numbers game one to ask is a big advantage for the asker. The ones who wait to be asked are at a real disadvantage.

Online dating he's like Very wishy-washy, but he said his energy has been down a lot lately and he envies my diligence when it comes to pursuing women.
I'm kind of surprised when he would tell me about these women he's talking to, but when I ask, "Did you ask her out? Like he would think by her FB pics, she's always busy with other friends socializing, or He's even overly cautious. One time he sent me a text of a very pretty woman he spent time with he met at a gala event.
Pic of him and her and I was like "Did you ask her out? He actually even sabotaged a situation with a woman that was really INTO him Yeah, he waits too long between return phone calls, and at something, women will NOT tolerate feet dragging.
I don't really understand your sport metaphor about women playing defense, but the answer to your first question is no, I'm not claiming that as fact.
I just suggested the one panelist within the first few minutes talks about a mathematical study of why it is true that the active person asking has a distinct advantage at getting as much of what they want as possible. I just thought it might be interesting.
I have to admit I'm at a loss as to what your story about your friend is meant to be making - except it seems to me that he is in the category of not asking. Or maybe half-asking, or half-assed asking. On a side note, your Internet dating is a numbers game is at an age where he might get a physical and find out why he's so tired.

I mean, is someone who is single and looking "being desperate"? Funny, when people say "it just happened", I have a hard time buying into it because a lot of singles get tired of other saying, "It'll happen, when you stop looking. Being desperate means exactly what it says. The logic is hardly ground breaking - the more obsessed you are with not being alone the less likely you are to notice a flaw or a difference that would otherwise be a deal breaker.
I'm single currently but my relationships usually happen when I'm not expecting them. Or rather I meet people who impress me enough to give it a shot when I'm not expecting it.
