But for college-educated women, excluding working-class guys makes their dating math much more challenging.
If there is an undersupply of men in the college-educated dating pool, there is going to be an oversupply of men in the non-college-educated one.
The good news, at least according to the work of psychologists and sex-ratio pioneers Marcia Guttentag and Paul Secord, is that people tend to have better sex when ratios skew female. Women frequently wind up being treated as sex objects, and men are more inclined to exercise the option to delay marriage and play the field.
As I note in my book, today’s uneven gender ratios “add up to sexual nirvana for heterosexual men, but for heterosexual women — especially those who put a high priority on getting married and having children in wedlock — they represent a demographic time bomb.” Of course, these lopsided numbers might not matter if young, college-educated women become more willing to date — and, eventually, marry — across socioeconomic lines.
When there are plenty of marriageable men, dating culture emphasizes courtship and romance, and men generally must earn more to attract a wife.
