Or is this a more recent development? With an approximate year-round population of 39, the male-to-female ratio on Hilton Head Island is roughly 19, to 20, Eighty-five percent of the population is married, while 15 percent are single. That means that more or less 2, men and 3, women comprise the Hilton Head dating circuit. Numerically, this seems high—if you are a single male, you have over 3, available women to court.
