The 80 20 rule in dating

Many of you may have heard of the 80/20 rule when reading about other topics.For those of you who don’t know, here is a little history lesson of the origin of the 80/20 rule.There would be an equal, or roughly equal number of available men as there is available women.Obviously the world can’t be perfect but I believe that in its current state there is a large imbalance that needs to be dealt with.This small percentage of guys is made up of good guys, rich guys, powerful guys, and bad guys.

Juran suggested the principle and named it after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed in 1906 that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population; he developed the principle by observing that 20% of the pea pods in his garden contained 80% of the peas.” This principle is used to explain data and result in a variety of different subjects including social and dating behaviors.

Also many rich and powerful males are bad guys that only come off as attractive because of their money and power.

Another thing to keep in mind is that 80% and 20% are not set in stone numbers.

Basically the whole idea behind the theory is that a large percentage of women are choosing to date and sleep with a smaller percentage of men. Powerful men have slept with multiple women since the beginning of our existence.

Although this is debated a lot I personally still believe it to be true. Not every man can be powerful and ruling so these men were outnumbered by “lesser” men who were seen as unattractive.
