6 Countries In Europe With A Shortage of Men

You probably know that the number of males and females on earth are equal, as the ratio of males to females in general is 1:1.

But did you know?

Due to a wide range of factors such as suicide rates, perusal of alcohol, war, and a difference of natural death rates, some countries have a gender imbalance with a higher female population compared to males as a whole. If you’re short of a female partner, why not consider visiting these countries, especially with Valentine’s Day coming up?
