An average Woman Dates 24 Men before Settling Down

Or so i heard o, I stumbled on the article Posted by Ami Angelowicz on thefrisky.com that an average woman will date about twenty four men before finally settling dowm. Check out the original post;

"This may make all of the serial daters out there feel a little bit better. Or, ahem, make me feel better. A new survey done in the U.K. found that the average woman goes on about 24 dates before she finds a keeper. And to add a little more solace—seven percent of the more than 2,000 women polled went on between 41 and 60 dates before finding someone special and one percent went on a staggering 61 to 80 dates before finding Prince Charming. Geez, no wonder we get so sick and tired of dating. That’s a lot frogs.
The poll also found that one-third of the women surveyed have ditched out on a date when they knew the guy was lame. (Raises hand.) One out of four women will only go out with a guy once before she determines if he’s Mr. Right, while 35 percent will give a dude two dates, and 16 percent think three dates is fair. 

And this dating business costs us, too. On average, the research found that we spent about $3,000 on dating, mostly on getting our hair did and buying new clothes and stuff. I wonder what that figure would be for the guys?
Moral of story: dating is hard and you have to pick through the proverbial haystack to find that needle"
Well, i don't think that statistics will be applicable everywhere especially in Africa
