College educated dating
As I argue in “DATE-ONOMICS: How Dating Became a Lopsided Numbers Game,” the college and post-college hookup culture is a byproduct, not of Tinder or Facebook (another target of modern scolds), but of shifting demographics among the college-educated.Much as the death toll of WWI caused a shortage of marriageable men in the 1920s, today’s widening gender gap in college enrollment has created unequal numbers in the post-college dating pool.
But the flip side is the working-class guys may be more interested in settling down.
The most educated countries in the world are also determined based on their higher education structure.
Going to college enhances a person’s learning abilities as studying is tougher there and allows students to decide and choose their field of interest.

Nowadays, certificates confirm a person’s skill in a particular field.
The fact is, with 134 women for every 100 men, there is simply no way all the young college-grad women who wish to marry college-grad men can do so.
