For Valentine’s Day the Sun Journal will take a by-the-numbers look at love in Maine; and ladies, the numbers aren’t too promising: There are 88 single men for every 100 single women here. We’re interested in hearing dating tales from singles in the tri-county area. From your experience, do those numbers ring true? Is it hard to meet people? Taken any drastic measures along the way? (And did they work?)
