(In the past, difference in education level was a less important factor in marriage.) As Berger puts it, "New York City women looking for a match would be better off, statistically at least, at a fireman's bar in Staten Island than a wine bar on the Upper East Side." In other words, if women with a college education were more open to dating men without one, it would improve their odds of finding a date.
Of course, the same statistics that Berger cites regarding the uneven ratio of educated men to women in the dating world suggest that this is likely not going to happen anytime soon.But when the ratio is skewed toward women, as with the college grads in this study, romantic interaction becomes more about sex, because men are in high demand and don't feel pressured to settle down.Birger says this can lead to women being more sexually objectified, while men "play the field." Another factor that makes dating difficult is that college-educated women today are less likely than ever before to marry men with less education than them, research suggests.There's another reason working against the dating odds of straight, urban women: In LGBT-friendly cities like New York, Washington, and Miami, a considerable fraction of the men are gay.Birger estimates that in Manhattan's straight, college-grad, under-30 dating pool, there are roughly three women for every two men.Instead of offering a limited set of our own reports for your information and reading pleasure, we’re presenting a larger number of news lead-ins sourced from all around the globe.
