The citations can be a minefield, with more than one in three men in North America and Europe singles at any given time, the researchers say.

Fortunately, scientists have revealed the most likely explanations for a single state.

The researchers analyzed thousands of comments published in response to an anonymous question shared on Reddit in an attempt to understand why singleness is so common.

The question simply said: "Guys, why are you single?"

Thousands of Reddit users responded to the publication, allowing scientists to analyze the answers to find the most common explanations.

The scientists leaked the results to include only publications from people who were not single and wished to have a relationship.

Bad appearance, deficiency and baldness were the most frequent reasons presented by the online community, followed by lack of confidence.

The world of dating can often be a minefield, leaving more than one in three men alone and single. To understand why singleness is so widespread, scientists analyzed thousands of comments that were received after an anonymous publication in Reddit in 2017 (stock image)

The scientists led by Menelaos Apostolou of the University of Nicosia in Cyprus interrogated anonymously the men in Reddit why they thought they were still single.

They analyzed more than 6,700 comments and revealed the 43 most common reasons why people could not find a partner.

Not making the effort or disinterest in a long-term relationship were first on the list, along with a lack of flirting skills and being too shy.

Some of the respondents said they had been so burned during previous relationships that they did not dare to enter another, according to research published in Evolutionary Psychological Science.

Others felt they were too fussy, did not have the opportunity to meet available women or had different priorities.

Some of the men in the study had experienced mental health problems, sexual problems or struggling with illnesses, disabilities or addictions.

Dr. Apostolou says that there are evolutionary reasons why some modern men can not approach women successfully.

According to the so-called mismatch argument, their social skills do not align with the qualities needed today to make a good impression.

In a pre-industrial context, marriages were organized, the man-man competition was strong, and wives were sometimes obtained by force.

While in one aspect this left men with few choices about who their wives would be, it also meant that their appearance was irrelevant, and they did not need to know how to attract the opposite sex.

Socially inept and unattractive men may not have been single because their relationships were regulated by their parents.

"Modern men alone often lack flirting skills because in an ancestral pre-industrial context, selection pressures on the mechanisms that regulated mating effort and selectivity were weak," said Dr. Apostolou.

"Such skills are necessary today, because in postindustrial societies the choice of partner is not regulated or forced, but people have to find a partner for themselves."
