Are you looking to settle down one day with a young, college-educated man?
A word of advice: Stay away from Sarasota, Florida.
The number of college-educated women now far outstrips the number of college-educated men, which in turn has diminished their options in the dating pool (as you might be aware, a couple of Atlantic articles have touched on this issue).
Since most romance is local, I've spent the last few days sorting through Census data on the country's 100 or so largest metro areas to figure out where the disparities are worst -- or in other words, where a college-educated woman might have the hardest time finding a good date.
Though the education gap is worst for Hispanics and Blacks, it crosses racial boundaries.I t has also gotten more severe over the last few decades.Whereas once the country was full of Mad Men characters happy to turn their secretary into their lawfully wedded housewife, the story goes, now people pair off with spouses they meet in college, or while collaborating on a work project, or through mutual, equally well-schooled friends. As Stanford sociologist Michael Rosenfeld documented in a 2008 paper, contemporary women are less likely to marry a fellow bachelor's degree holder than they were in 1960, and about 11 percentage points less likely to than today's men. Decades ago, women who went to college had a noticeably smaller chance of getting married than those who didn't.Today, they've closed most, if not all, of that gap.No offense intended to Sarasota's bachelors -- I'm sure they're lovely.
But for every ten guys under 35 with a diploma, there are roughly 18 female college grads the same age roaming the city's greater metro area. Of course, Sarasota is just an extreme example of what's true all over America.
