Dating a professional woman
"Trying to keep up with her lifestyle can lead to resentment in the end," Boykin warns.One of those insufferable TED talks was making the rounds last week. Not once, though, have I ever heard someone tell a man, “Dude, why are you dating her?Yet most women, even the successful ones, tremble at the thought of even buying a man a beer.”Not convinced you should change your “entitled” tune? (*caveat: math is rougher than my hands in Tahoe wintertime.All calculations based on high level census data split evenly across the genders and back of the envelope division, and don’t take into account important nuances like men who only date up or the number of heterosexual women I know that are done with men and now experiment with other women.But you’ll get the gist…)So we have 1.04 educated professional heterosexual man for 1 heterosexual educated professional woman. Yet educated professional men don’t view things this way. (274,000 heterosexual women between 18–64 for 28,000 heterosexual educated professional men in the same age range)This bothers many women.“My ex left me for Susie Pilates saying it was “easier.” Of course it’s easier.
This gives men a much wider pool of romantic candidates.I am told that women want to settle down and have kids, etc., but their actions seem to be to the contrary.
