Portland maine dating scene

Across the United States today, young women are much more likely to graduate from college than their male peers, a trend that's been compounding itself for a few decades now.

And because college graduates overwhelmingly tend to date other college graduates, that's created an enormous imbalance in the national dating pool. According to the Census Bureau's American Community Survey, there are 33 percent more women in Portland who are under the age of 35 and have at least a bachelor's degree in than there are men.

It's possible that, for Jacob, signing up for really did change his outlook, rather than exacerbate personality traits that were already there.

But ultimately, I only want to illustrate how dicey it is to fixate on a single factor like the Internet when trying to explain something so complicated as the social-psychological mores that underpin love and dating, especially when there are other equally viable explanations waiting to be explored out there.

And in an interesting, gender-equitable twist, research on China has found that women there are more likely to sneak away for extramarital sex in communities with too many men.**With those findings in mind, it seems reasonable to suggest that instead of pointing a finger at the internet for Jacob's relationship habits, we can keep things simple and just blame Portland, where going to a bar, going to a concert, or even going to work would probably leave him surrounded by available women. In truth, my goal here isn't to convince you beyond reasonable doubt that sex-ratios are turning young, educated American adults into commitment-phobes.

Better yet, not only could the city's sex-ratio explain why he finds himself dating so many different women, but it might also clarify why so many different women are willing to date him: scarce alternatives. Someone who wanted to could probably marshall enough contradictory social science research to mount a good counterargument to the idea.

So in that spirit, this is my list of the nine best U.

Suggesting otherwise doesn't do human beings nearly enough justice, even if we're just talking about a schlubby guy from Portland.

But in fact, social scientists have been researching the society-wide effect of sex ratios on marriages and relationships since the early 20th century, and some of the evidence suggests that when there are excess women around, young men are less likely to commit.

In 1983, Marcia Guttentag and Robert Secord posited the theory that in female-heavy populations, men would become more promiscuous, and that in male-heavy populations, they'd become more faithful.

Between then and 2011, you might notice, the national gap between young college educated men and women grew by 3 percentage points.

So it's likely the metro region data is understating the problem.

Of course, online dating has been around for a while now.

Oct 26, 2015. I'm single in Seattle, which means the dating scene is all beanies, pinball machines and weirdly polite text exchanges that leave you unsure whether. Portland, Maine. There's no dating here, because you married your high school boyfriend after you spent college and your early 20s apart. He dated other.
