Single heading into this Valentine's Day weekend? It may not have to do with you, but instead come down to simple economics. According to the latest data from Statistics Canada, there are nearly 22, more single women than men in the city's dating pool. That's not totally unusual — women tend to live longer than men and as we age, there are just more of them. But women actually start to out men around age 25 in Winnipeg, and each year, the disparity grows. There is one distinct group, though, that hade says is particularly "disadvantaged" in Winnipeg when it comes to dating: educated women.
In Winnipeg, Statistics Canada data shows at last count, there were about 11, more women than men who reported having some post-secondary education. This is a trend hade said is playing out in cities across Canada, and it has been for the last 30 years. Statistics on the size of the LGBT community are limited, but hade said because LGBT Canadians are a statistically smaller proportion of the population, they're drawing from a smaller dating pool as well.

Everybody has to trade goods and services It's not just one quality we're trading in. We're trading in hundreds of qualities. University of Manitoba social psychology professor Marian Morry says gender inequality on campuses le to more casual relationships, and more people seeking out longer-term friendships.
Regardless of your gender or orientation, both Morry and hade said being rigid on your preferences for those "hundreds of qualities" isn't a good strategy. That's because simple factors like age, religion or even height can drastically shrink the dating pool, and it isn't hard to get down to zero quickly.
hade wants Statistics Canada to release data that would allow people to see how the pool shrinks as you add preferences. People would put it in and they would find out there's like three people in their region or something like that," she said. Those three qualifiers eliminate almost 99 per cent of men. Instead, she recommends people looking for love do a few simple things like staying off their cellphones they shut down conversations , looking people in the eye when talking and trying to read others' expressions and behaviours.
Online dating is also an option, but Morry said it focuses too much on "actual similarity" and le to less diversity in who you meet.
