I dont know if you have noticed this but men are outnumbered here in mylot 4 to 10 by our ladies of mylot. I also noticed that most of the best responses hail from the most intelligent women that I have ever had the pleasure of discussing with. I believe mylot is a good place to exchange views and is a strong voice of the female of our species since here they can express themselves through their views unhindered by an otherwise male dominated society. And discussions are a lot more interesting since women are more likely to talk about things more openly rather than most men since for them some topics are not so manly to discuss openly :) Has anyone noticed this too?

There do seem to be a lot more women than men who are most active on mylot, I wonder if it's because there are so many female subjects being discussed men are put off. I do have some men on my friends list who post a lot of discussions of good quality and I try to support them. The men of mylot just have to be braver and post more discussions to even things out a bit.

Men are more prone to try things after they have enough evidence or enough facts before jumping in. I notice women like to do the trail and error method which sometimes is very amusing to watch especially if they obsess, my mom does that and my girl, I like catching them after they are disappointed and lifting their spirits up for the next try hahah...like ice skating...my girl learned that after 150 stumbles and 45 bruises...but she never let me make her give up hahah

Oh you are good. Trying to sweet talk all the ladies...lol. Well it works :) I have noticed that there tends to be more females than males on Mylot. I love being able to have discussions with both as well as all the different cultures as well. I must say that many of the males I have dealt with here on Mylot are also very intelligent and a pleasure to discuss with.

Why thank you for your opinion ma'am its greatly appreciated. And yes I was told also by my girl that my sweet talking is an asset of mine but dont get me wrong every word I mentioned on this post was indeed honest and meant. I have a great respect for women since I was raised by a marvelous woman myself. I believe they are the string behind every man's ego and achievements and they are underestimated a times ...too much sometimes actually :) I just hope I give confidence to all the women here to keep on saying their mind cause their views are filled with new prespectives and wisdom ...

Yup men are now realizing that women are indeed engaging conversationalist. Atleast here they wouldnt be staring at your chest while pretendending to be listening but actually it just goes in their brains as "blah blah blah...nice rack hahah" any ways men are finding it that women are good with discussing crucial topics and that they do give 100% of themselves in the reply I mean 100% of what they feel :)

i believe this is because most people participating in myLot are housewives which do not have a physical job, but wish to make some money

Indeed house wifes sometimes have extra time to just sit around and be amused by stories, but instead of having destructive gossip mylot is a good substitute not only does it have substance but it also has challenges especially for the mind. I think women appreciate mind games or mind challenges rather than men...they like springing it on us

I am surprised you managed to do a statistics of the man woman ratio in mylot. And most of the best responses go to woman? I am amused. I do agree that woman are more open and more expressive. That has always been the case since history, isn't it? In my opinion, man too are capable of doing good responses. Perhaps most men find it a waste of time to participate in such a discussion. They would rather do "big" projects and make more money. Merely speaking my mind only :)

That is right I guess for most men, But I participate in mylot to find good challenges for my self and to share my life experiences to others I find it very amusing and fun to engage in conversation with a lot of bright women here :) Yeah sometimes men take things for granted because they look for bigger things in life rather than appreciating the simple and smaller things but these smaller things atimes give the best pleasure like a simple kiss from your sweet heart, the rushing sound of a brook and the first snow of winter the small things :)

I haven't realized that in Mylot women are more than men:) Scientists found that women are good at talking, so perhaps they are good at debate, too. And women are very patient. Therefore, they can create good quality discussions and won't give up easily.

Maybe there's more housewives than stay at home dads, that's why you see more women around here spending more time in mylot??? I notice that too. I guess more men would rather discuss about sports, women, sports, online games and sports. And these interests don't get so much responses. I try to get my husband get into mylot, but he's not much into it as I am. He said the discussions in the top discussions are so unlikely to be there.

Miss shorva your correct in the order of saying sports, and sports and sports hahaha...well yeah Its kind of the genetic make up of men to think about physically engaging stuff rather than the mental faculties unless its really necessary, when the game is on TV I am in a different dimension "Honey dont disturb me" or when she is talking to me "Baby, uhu....okay...sure...why not?" hahaha well mylot for me is a form of stress management :) thats why Im very active here :0

The internet now is dominated by women. An investigation made by eMarketer reveals that women outnumber men online in the US: about 97.2 million American women enter the net compared to 90.9 million American males. Source: http://news.softpedia.com/news/ The-Internet-is-Dominated-by-Women-51929.shtml Further, the eMarketer group reported that women are considered the best communicators and the Internet makes it easier for them to communicate and socialize. One might not notice that in most social networking websites women and young girls compose the majority of the users, like that of myspace and friendster. Young women in particular are interested in meeting people and talking with friends while only about 45% of them watch youtube. Men are likely to be more active in watching video and playing games than discussing in forums. As to mylot, I hold the same view as what eMarketer group has presented. But I am just curious on how you managed to come up with your own statistical ratio? It's hard to believe that you could made a study on this. Just asking my friend.

Actually its just observation, just look around on my discussions and you will find what I mean, literally I would encounter 4-5 replies from men and 10-15 replies from women. sorry my math is not an exact science but more of estimation and observation, im poor in math but good in biology and psychology so I have been observing the activities and the percentage of answers given to me and women win the lot!!

I am always surpriced when I see men on myLot for some reason. I am also a member of Gather and there are also lots of men over there. I am surprised but I love it. It is always good to have a balance of opinions! I can't speak for all women but for me a mans opinion keep my feet on the ground as I do tend to get caught up with things as in emotional at times. But then again my emotional reaction to something is sometimes good so I think as I said men and women need each other for the balance!

Now why would u say that women are very sweet????i would rather prefer the word talkative.they cannot stop chatting even for a second.that is their nature.we men r much more of the reserved type.but in some cases our system fails to work.only talkative women are on top here.so ladies dont stop chatting.........keep messaging.all this is jus4fun now ladies don mark my words serious.i jus like doin mock fighting with ladies.but im not that serious abt the words that i choose to say.so once again don mistake me...

Well yes, I have noticed that too. i think its a good open forum to get some great opinions from the ladies themselves. Its very difficult for me to know what a girl is thinking or what might be going through her head sometimes when she is quiet and maybe at MyLot I can ask someone that and I might get an idea. Its a great place though, I have to agree!

Maybe men in MyLot is not outnumbered at all. Maybe they pick discussions, only discussions they want to answer which less women is there. But we dont really know unless someone take a survey :)

Yea I just notice that a moment ago. It sure does seem like mylot is filled with more female members than males. Probably its because of the nature of this site. I guess women/girls just have more unique and interesting topics to talk about. Most of the question that are asked in this site are random everything things that everyone can relate to. I guess women/girls are just more random...(j/k ladies!).

Hmm indeed I have realized this too, especially in this topic! So many women, but I like talking with women it helps me know more about the way they think and what they like. I live with 3 women (only men are me and my Dad) so I know a lot about them but it is still nice. Most forums I visit have a lot of one gender depending on the topic. Nice discussion you just went up a few ranks in the women's chart. :-D Rated +.

I have noticed this as well. I kinda notice this on alot of other websites too. Women just seem to have an easier time to open up and create some rather intriguing conversations while also having the ability to give some nice and detailed respones as well. I think it may be because,as you said, it gives women a chance to speak their mind without a man trying to come in and tell her to stop or even try to hide her voice. I support anything that gives women a chance to speak up and voice their opinion.

What a good observation! Your observation, if actually true, has partly given the reason behind my own observation that women get more responses on myLot. I had earlier concluded in my mind that the attempts by the male members to 'curry the favour' of or 'get closer' to the female members were largely responsible for the more massive responses to the latter's posts. Now, I have another reason for my own observation: there seems to be an 'esprit de corp' among the female members, who are also in the majority. Couple this with my initial supposition, and you have the main reasons for the mountainous responses that female posters get. I agree with you that the female posters are brilliant and intelligent. Most males are as well.
