Well, I can't really put a number on it but there aren't many people I would like to carry on a five minute conversation with, let alone get into a relationship with, so the above number is probably quite accurate.

If I were single, about 40% of the male population and 20% of the female population. Luckily, i'm not single.

It would depend on if I were single (or if I could get away with it:yes) and what the person was like. I suppose it would be nice to actually date quite a lot and then pick the best one:roll

This is "Assuming you're single," right? I checked "it depends on the person," but I reckon I'd go on at least one date with maybe 20% - 30% of the male population. While there are some people I definitely don't like/get on with, I'm quite a bad judge of character and I need to get to know someone before I decide I don't like them, and I think there's something attractive, or at least interesting, about most people.

Come to think of it, maybe that figure should be a bit lower, because I'm unlikely to consider dating anyone well outside my age bracket.

The more I think about it, the lower my percentage goes.

I think maybe 40% of the population? I voted 60 to 70 though. I'd definitely willing to go on a date or two with most guys - everyone deserves a shot - but forming an actual relationship is a little harder.

I would love to date all the beautiful women. I don't mean to sound shallow, but a woman who does not take care of herself is ugly in my opinion. Every girl has the chance to be beautiful, but its up to her to change that. Anyways, I would love to date all of the beautiful women, IF at least one of the billion would be willing to date me, hahaha. Like that's going to happen.

Hard to say really. I never stopped to think about the percentage of girls that I'm attracted to. Maybe 5-10% of girls in the 18-30 age bracket.

Now of that 5-10%, how many would want to date me in return?....lol probably .00000001%.

I have no clue. I'm pretty indiscriminate, though. (Well, I say that, but I have no idea how well that would go over in practice. Oh, how I'd love to practice...)

They need to be pessimistic, honest, inexperienced, not very social, non smoking, brush and floss after every meal(I'm a bit of a germphobic), no beard or mustache, and have some interest in the paranormal. Less then 1% of the population fits all those so for me its less then 1%.

I put 60-70% of the female population though from this table (from this site (scroll to the bottom pick 2009 and hit submit query)) it looks like only 39.5% of women in the world actually fit into a age range I'd date and I certainly wouldn't date all of them so it is significantly less than 60-70.

Percents for female population by age to right.

I'd say 60-70% of females in my age range.
