So I stumbled across a current post in the nyc subreddit (link) titled: "There 39 percent more women ages 22 to 29 with college degrees in Manhattan than men in the same bracket".
The link brings you to article titled: "Why College-Educated Women Can't Find Love".
The top comment:
Men have no problem dating down, but women do.
Some selected comments:
Despite this being a claim that is supported by research, it has been posted to SRS for some reason. I guess acknowledging reality is sexist.
Mid-30s guy here. I can't get a date with a woman my age to save my life, but I can go to a bar by myself and get approached by much younger women if I stand still for more than a few minutes.
you are doing apps wrong. if you are chatting together for a "few days" you are taking shit too slow. You should have a day set to meet at the end of the first day
Even better, a whiny BP commenter calling out TRP has the most downvotes:
This reeks of red piller bullshit. Who the fuck are these people they interviewed? Do they actually think what they are doing will result in anything quantifiable and real that benefits their lives, jesus. That said I am so sick of the hook up culture in NYC. Trying to find something real with someone here is fucking impossible. You date for a month or two, have a great time and the dump your ass for some ostensibly better option that is out there somewhere. The paradox of choice is real, effects women WAY more than men, and is fucking stupid.
