Dating is a period in romantic relationships whereby a couple, mostly a male and a female, meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other’s suitability as a possible partner in a serious intimate relationship.

They say there are more women in the world compared to men, as much as that is great for the men to hear, one would wonder, hmm, and look around, but where are they? You can only see a lot of your fellow men out there. Thing is, you are not going to see a gang of women walking around together just because they out number men.

To meet women, you have to go to places where they are, and be a regular there. That begs the question, where are they, actually?
