    Example:

    GU - Geographically Undesirable - Because of my schedule, I really don't see a long distance relationship working. So I will start off with the population of Los Angeles County, which would be a little unrealistic if they live on the far West side of the County, but gives me a place to start. 9,830,420 people.

    I'm gay so that will eliminate women, roughly half of the population: -4,915,210 = 4915210

    I would only consider an adult so that would remove children, reducing it by approx. another 30%: -1,474,563
    =3,440,647
    I'm not interested in straight men so that would reduce it by another 90%: -3,096,582=344,065

    I'm not attracted to obese people, the gay population has a lower percentage of obese people, so I will guess 30%: -103,220=240,845

    Then I would remove out the people that fall into one or more of these: Whores, dishonest, lack integrity, not goal oriented, bad hygiene, lazy, apathetic (roughly 99%): -238,447= 2,398

    Now I would subtract out the number of people I'm not physically attracted to (just a guess): -1,926=472

    What is Left: potentially 472 out of 7 billion people ;)

    Ok, I realize that it is silly, but it is kind of funny to think about. I could limit it more if i really thought about it, like removing people over a certain age, which I did not include. I'm not sure where the limit is for me so I did not research the percentage of the population.

    Roughly 99%? So basically you threw any seriousness out the window when you got to this point.

    Did a bit of research thanks ABS.

    There are roughly 1,900,000 men in Australia between 36 and 48.
    6 years either side my age.

    My states population is 10% of the nations total 190,000

    90% of the population live in the metropolitan area 171,000

    If 10% are gay 17,100

    assume 50% are in relationships 8550

    Life has taught me that 50% are not relationship compatible 4275

    an extra 20% incomaptibility Perth Queen factor 3420

    Probably know professionally/ socially, have dated or shagged 400

    Leaves me roughly 3000 men, now WHERE THE FUCK are they!!!!icon_lol.gif




    Lets also half that after discussion at least 50% of gay men here according to my survey of Peth gay guys are still closeted.

    So 1500
