Given six degrees of separation, (2,000,000,000)1/6=35 available singles! :confused:

The number of people you are actually likely to encounter - let alone find yourself in an environment with where it's conducive to socializiing - is miniscule by comparison. On the order of hundreds or thousands.

I assume the 2 billion singles is based on falling within a certain age bracket? There are almost 7 billion humans on this planet.

With the internet, I wonder how many potential mates a person can reasonably come into contact with?

Sounds reasonable. Thanks for straightening me out, Dave.

'Tis a fine posterior indeed that singles itself out to me.

That would be nubile singles.

Even with the Internet, some things never grow old. A few write sonnets, most others politics.

Yes ma'am. Hope it will be open all day. I do have a few obligations if I can get out of the drive Evo.

Some concerns come to mind:

The quality of communication (the possibility of love letters becoming cursory/devalued).

One's compatibility to computers overemphasized (as opposed to the values of traditional relationships).

A new social class of the cyberelite (who would attempt to manipulate public interactions).
