According to the good folks over at the BBC, if your male and single then you’ll benefit from an apparent ‘man drought’ which is hitting Australia.
An analysis of new census figures has shown there are almost 100,000 more females than males in Australia.
The problem is worse in the coastal cities, where women have moved seeking better jobs and lifestyles.
Thirty years ago Australia was flush with men thanks to immigration policies that favoured males, however that position has been reversed as thousands of Australian men in their 20s and early 30s have gone overseas either to travel or to work.
Countries such as the United Arab Emirates are now home to tens of thousands of Australian males in 25 – 34 year old demographic
It’s not all doom and gloom for single women moving to Australia though. If your looking to move to the ‘sticks’ in the search for love then odds of finding your dream man may well be working in your favour!
As vast numbers of women have abandoned the countryside seeking better jobs or education, communities overloaded with younger males have been left behind.
In the town of Glenden in the northern state of Queensland for example there is one single female for every 23 men!
Demographers have compiled a so-called “Love Map” that shows how the various clusters of unattached men and women are distributed across the Australian continent
