A ratio used to define the proper number of men and women in a mixed group, usually defined as at least more women than the number of men. If X is women and Y is men the mathematical equation for the ratio is X = Y + 1 where Y > 2. Common group sizes that make use of the ratio are 2:3. 3:4, 4:5.

Used to avoid people from getting mixed singles in group situations. When used properly it will mitigate the amount of drama within the groups dynamics.

the balance between the level of attractiveness and the level of asshole-ness. In short, the hotter you are the more tolerable and common dick-like behavior is. However, there are exceptions. Specifically those who seem to have a distorted self image and think they are the shit when in reality they simply look like shit. Lower levels of attractiveness can be compensated with: good sense of humor, intelligence, or kindness. But the ratio must remain balanced.
John does not adhere to The Ratio, he's fat and ugly and yet he continues to act like a douchebag. He is upsetting the ratio and is thus disgustingly unattractive.

"The Ratio" is a fundamental rule of life, relating to the direct correlation between the attractivenes and assholiness of a male. With "The Ratio," degrees of attractiveness = degrees of assholiness. Men who are uglier must act nicer to attract a mate and men who are more attractive already attract them, so they act like assholes. Exceptions to "The Ratio" include men who perceive themselves to be more attractive than they actually are (these individuals usually fail to get a mate). Other exceptions include males with distorted self-images who consider themselves less attractive than they actually are, so they display kindness as well (these usually are very desirable as mates).
Man I really hate The Ratio.
