All the Single Divorced Ladies Read This Book Jon Birger finally validates what I ve always known since I was a freshman at my local southern Utah college, Fall 1993, surrounded by females, taking our Gen Eds askingWhere are all the boys The majority of my Friday and Saturday nights were spent studying in an apartment complex where over half the units were occupied by single women I also had a part time job Attending my LDS Mormon Sunday worship services, was also frustrating, wondering how I could possibly compete for a date with 150 other young women, all with an eye single to our eternal salvation Hitting each other over the head with our trays of freshly baked cookies to impress the handful of single guys, entice them to come hang out at our apartment, was also not uncommon Back off b ch, he s MINE was a silent message telegraphed among females at mixers Thousands of women know exactly what I m talking about.Temple marriage in the Mormon community is exactly like a game of musical chairs As all the good, active, educated, return missionaries make their selections from the huge pool of eligible bachelorettes, those still left in the circle are not only suffering from the humiliation of never being chosen, but slapped with the blame that it was our own fault for not making ourselves marketable.The appendixes at the end were fascinating Birger lists, state by state and county by county, the dating market numbers of college age women and men The two listed for Utah are Salt Lake and Utah counties, home to the two largest universities University of Utah and BYU I found it very interesting that among the 22 29 age group millennials the number of college educated women in Provo totaled 14,000 as opposed to only 7,482 MEN Why is it taking so long for young men in Utah county to graduate I can t help but wonder if Birger s numbers include divorced men and women which makes Birger s numbers even MORE skewed as most never married Mormon women aren t looking for a man with baggage, not to mention the alimony which would require us to continue working outside the home not exactly the ideal life we were taught to strive for The man deficit is real.My roommates and I were not promiscuous but we spent many nights sitting around discussing our options, wondering if we shouldn t just lower our standards like so many of our desperate friends were doing, just to get a guy to notice them The numbers here in Utah have always been skewed against never married women where the only male dominated place to meet anyone is the line at Best Buy for the newest X Box.Unfortunately, too many of my amazing, single, never married friends and I would rather be doing grown up activities, like focusing on our careers and character building hobbies than waiting for these blue collar men to grow up, stop playing the field and settle down Yes, Chapter 6 was especially fun to read and the author got it exactly right.In the end, the only solution Birger suggests is doing to encourage our young boys to be ambitious, go to school, and graduate.Now we just need to convince them to stop cohabitating and put a ring on it.That goes for the women too As a single Latter day Saint woman and a former Utah county resident, this book was SO validating There s a saying among residents that Provo kills love and after reading this book I m realizing that there is great truth to that statement.This book is a very quick read and I can t recommend it enough to Latter day Saint YSAs or others who can t understand the complexities of millennial dating within the church.I shared so much of what I learned from this book with friends Not sure how this book will influence my dating pursuits, but I am definitely pondering some deep thoughts over here Read Read Read Let me know if you want to borrow this book from me This was one of the best books on dating I have read in a long time It focuses primarily on the statistics and data around dating demographics and it really opened my eyes to something I had never thought of before There is a chapter that specifically looks at the Mormon demographics and addresses the gender ratios in Utah county which, after reading this book, have completely convinced me that I should not move back to Utah unless I intend to get a boob job and regular botox injections Pretty sure I am going to move to Wyoming now and marry a cowboy Fabulous book well worth the read for singles females and males for that matter, college educated or not. Date onomics is an eye opener Whether you are a single person still searching for the one, a parent of a student nearing college age, a divorced person re entering the dating market, or a college admissions officer, this book will provide insights that will help you think clearly about the dynamics of dating behaviors As the number of women with college degrees continues to increase in comparison to men with similar educational levels, we need to consider the impact of that shift on our society Jon Birger offers observations that many of us have never noticed, but that are particularly significant for young adults in the United States The book is cleanly written and presents economic and social data in an accessible way, along with savvy commentary Birger is not writing to pass judgment instead, his book helps people understand their own choices better, including where they attend college, where they live, what profession they pursue, and who they find attractive. [ EBOOK ] ☥ Date-onomics ⚆ It S Not That He S Just Not That Into You It S That There Aren T Enough Of Him And The Numbers Prove It Using A Combination Of Demographics, Statistics, Game Theory, And Number Crunching, Date Onomics Tells What Every Single, College Educated, Heterosexual, Looking For A Partner Woman Needs To Know The Man Deficit Is Real It S A Fascinating, If Sobering Read, With Two Critical Takeaways One, It S Not You Two, Knowledge Is Power, So Here S What To Do About It The Shortage Of College Educated Men Is Not Just A Big City Phenomenon Frustrating Women In New York And LA Among Young College Grads, There Are Four Eligible Women For Every Three Men Nationwide This Unequal Ratio Explains Not Only Why It S So Hard To Find A Date, But A Host Of Social Issues, From The College Hookup Culture To The Reason Salt Lake City Is Becoming The Breast Implant Capital Of America Then There S The Math That Says That A Woman S Good Looks Can Keep Men From Approaching Her Particularly If They Feel The Odds Aren T In Their Favor Fortunately, There Are Also Solutions What College To Attend Any With Strong Sciences Or Math , Where To Hang Out In New York, Try A Fireman S Bar , Where To Live Colorado, Seattle, Man Jose , And Why Never To Shy Away From Giving An Ultimatum Jon presents the facts well, but as someone of faith this book was rather depressing It serves as a reminder of how, in American culture, women are viewed as objects of pleasure that can easily be used and thrown away so men can easily move on to the multitude of other women willing to do whatever it takes to keep men interested in them It makes me sad that this our normal women who are afraid of being alone and who find their worth in men, resulting in low standards and women who give their bodies and hearts away to men who give them no commitment and men who think they need to take advantage of women to be men we were created for so much than this I loved this book for its different perspective on the dating world As a single woman in the New York City area I was starting to wonder if it was me After reading this I realized that there are a lot other issues going on that have little to do with me.The imbalance of the sexes is a really interesting phenomenon, and has a lot of different causes and results For someone looking to get married will get some tools for improving their odds, in ways most don t think of. Really a 2.5 stars It is an interesting concept that is frightening to some extent, how quickly our animal instincts just come right out It was very repetitive with all the stats that felt like they said the same thing again and again I also have a problem with social science cause it never feels like science. This book both depressed me and made me feel a lot better about myself, that my situation is not a personal one but a matter of circumstances I wish this book had been written 15 years ago and I had read it before deciding where to go to college I highly recommend it to every single person, particularly single women. This book made me sad than books that are actually sad.
