I agree with muslimah21, defintely more single women than single men it seems!
As for dealing with parents and culture, alhamdullilah my parents are very open minded and only have requirements based on the deen. However I myself have my own requirements as well, and one Im ashamed to say is physical i.e. their height. lol I'm tall so I really couldnt imagine myself with someone shorter than me!
Also, why does it seem that when you find some religious guys, they are lacking financially. I'm not talking about earning alittle bit of money, I'm talking about having no job and sitting in the mosque all day and not even looking for work. I mean realistically, if your looking to get married, you have to atleast have the capacity to provide the basics: food, shelter, clothing. That is even in the Quran, that men who want to get married but do not have the means should fast, they shouldnt be trying to get married.
