more singles than married people

Think all the good ones are taken?
Think again.

New data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), show that, for the first time ever, there are more single adults in the U.S. than married ones. As of August 2014, 124.6 million Americans were single, with 50.2 percent of the adult population (16 and over) unattached. According to the US Census, 53% of singles are women, 47% are men. However in China, there are currently 118 men for every 100 women — and around 200 million Chinese are currently single.

According to U.S. Census Bureau, Current Population Survey 2011, since the 1960s, men and women have been increasingly marrying later. The median age at first marriage has risen to nearly 29 years for men and to more than 26 years for women.

Compatibility matching system

We all have good parts, bad parts and priorities. Our compatibility matching system determines compatibility based on your priorities. Ideally partners should be between 20 - 40% different in order to keep the relationship interesting, but similar enough to have the same perspective on life. The important thing is to know what you should have in common and what not. If you were born to be an active or a social person and your partner is not, chances are in long term you will not be happy. While just the simple fact that you like Rock and your partner likes Jazz, will not stop you from having a wonderful life together.

Most people love doing certain things. When they exaggerate with what they like, they get out of balance and have to stop doing what they love most. Therefore they should also avoid temptation, including a partner who tempts them. For example, Mr. A who loves fat products and ate them his entire life, finds out he should avoid them. But his wife who loves only salad and absolutely hates fat finds out she has to include some fat in her diet on a regular basis. What will happen is that Mr. A will become frustrated, will avoid eating with his wife and their relationship will fall apart.

We are not saying that if you do not like or do the same things you are not compatible, or that you have to do the same things in order to be compatible. What we are saying is that

Breakups occur from little but extremely important differences. Not knowing what really matters can lead to failure.
