According to the latest data from Statistics Canada, there are nearly 22,000 more single women than men in the city's dating pool.
There is one distinct group, though, that Adshade says is particularly "disadvantaged" in Winnipeg when it comes to dating: educated women.
"I think this is a feature of the fact women are going to university more than men are today," she said, adding it's a trend that's been going on for about 30 years, and it creates a disparity in the dating pool — especially in cities.
In Winnipeg, Statistics Canada data shows at last count, there were about 11,000 more women than men who reported having some post-secondary education.
"In Canada, if you look at women you know say between the ages of 25 and 35, for every 100 men that have a university degree, there's 135 women," she said.
A funny outgoing girl who I can laugh with, not overly sensitive, someone who treats others good, preferably a lesbian, but if not I'm not going to argue.
I'm dying to find someone who I can click with and have a relationship with that they aren't ashamed of ! Adventurous, down for lazy days, nap dates, someone who knows what they want, and not dealing with a current relationship ending.
I want someone who can hold their own, have fun, work hard, and let loose.Someone who is just as relaxed and open minded as I am.Someone who can communicate their feelings honestly with out having to hint things.I appreciate honesty and I can handle striaght forwardness. Someone who doesn't mind talking dirty once in a while. I am looking for a loving person who is compassionate and has a good personality; who loves life and is willing to do out of the box things. It may not have to do with you, but instead come down to simple economics."Like many cities across Canada, Winnipeg has more women than men," said Marina Adshade, a professor of economics at the University of British Columbia who specializes in the economics of dating pools.
