51% of the Illinois population is single.  Of course this includes everyone.  From age 0-100.  So really, the dating population is less than that.  But they are still out there!

Th Marriage rate in Illinois in 2021 was 4.7 per 1000 people.  Compare that to 1990 when it was 8.0 per 1000 people and it clearly shows their are more fish in pond.  But the pond is just more of a cess pool.

This would also explain why divorce rates in Illinois are so low.  Because people aren't even giving other people a chance to say "I do".  The divorce rate is 6.2 per 1000 people based on the latest stats.
