Personally, I've never cared to lower myself to viewing myself as a statistic. But if you want to play a game of finding the absolutely most average person you can, then yea use statistics.
I've never heard any man consider it desperate to date a woman in her 20's. 40's? Maybe. I think you have a very skewed idea of what's normal. And frankly with how easy it is to create misinformation online I wouldn't be surprised if this neurosis was driven and planted by certain communities.
I'm looking at you r9k and pol.
You're still in a good position, but every day you spend whining about your youth is one more day you're not going to find a man.
No man wants to be with a woman who bitches about being 25.
