Women dating down

There are also a lot of beta men out there that played by the rules, they got their STEM job and thought that once they were financially stable they would have an eligible pool of attractive women to go out with.

But what we found most compelling, particularly when studying women’s confidence in the dating space, is that women on Ok Cupid today are about 15% more likely to ask someone they like a lot out on a date than women a decade ago — and they don’t need an app that forces them to do it, either.

It used to be that men were expected to make the first move, but more and more women every year decide to take matters into their own hands — and that pays off.

She really wants to have kids, get married, the whole [thing]. “They’d been dating for over two years and he said he ‘just wasn’t ready to settle down.'”This got Birger, a former economics writer for Fortune and Money, thinking: How could a man of that age be so cavalier about casting aside such an amazing woman? If a woman is Vice-President of some company, then the only one who she’s got eyes for is the President. Now, as more and more women graduate universities and get pink collar jobs, their eligible pool of candidates for dating dries up. That’s why these women complain about “dating down”.

According to a report from Forbes' Clare O'Connor, Match offered $450 million for the 3-year-old startup about two months ago, but Bumble rejected the offer.

We all have that friend: the beautiful, intelligent, driven woman who—like Katherine Heigl in every rom-com—can’t find a decent date.
