Dating a senior in college
According to Niche, “The same girls that run in the social hookup circles on Friday night are taking you to church with them on Sunday.
In the appendix of DATE-ONOMICS, I include a table that ranks 35 major public and private colleges by their gender ratios and pairs that data with students’ own descriptions of dating at their schools.
The young man told me he had had sex with more than 20 of his female classmates.
“There isn’t really a culture of monogamy or even dating here,” he offered.
Let me suggest that college-bound high schoolers add one more item to their collegiate checklist: the gender ratio.
If applicants and their parents want to know whether the dating scene at a particular college is geared more towards wild hookups or traditional relationships, the best barometer will always be the ratio of women to men on campus.
But when women are in oversupply—as they are today at most U. colleges and universities—men play the field and women are more likely to be treated as sex objects.
