According to data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, there are now 5.5 million college-educated women in the United States between the ages of 22 and 29 vs. In other words, the dating pool for straight, millennial, college graduates has four women for every three men.
No wonder some men are in no rush to settle down and more women are giving up on what used to be called “playing hard to get.” These demographics represent the true dating apocalypse, as stacks of social science show how dating and mating behavior is influenced by prevailing sex ratios.
California and Colorado, for example, each have 20 percent more college-grad women than men age 22 to 29 compared with 36 and 41 percent, respectively, in Illinois and North Carolina.

Call it the musical chairs problem: Nearly everybody finds a chair in the first round.
By the last round, however, there’s a 50 percent chance of not getting one.
