In online dating, for example, the number of men on dating sites tends to easily outnumber the women.
A woman will find frequently find her profile flooded with emails and winks.
The idea is that because it is supposedly easier for women to find a sexual partner than it is for a man, they are the dominant force, the buyer in a buyer’s market.
