Think all the good ones are taken?
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.
