  1. From the Time magazine article based on this book, I thought it would largely be about marriage markets when I saw it on the shelf at the library, I picked it up partly because I was curious how someone could write an entire popular press book about the fact that marriage markets exist and are sometimes imbalanced.I guess to the extent that I had a specific idea of how that would work, I hoped that this book would use the marriage market concept to interrogate the cultural idea of marriage as a [...]


  2. 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 [...]


  3. 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 co [...]


  4. 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 [...]


  5. 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 bod [...]


  6. 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.


  7. 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.


  8. 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.



  9. This book just scientifically proved why dating sucks so much It was intriguing and easy to read It has also provided a lot of heated discussion between me and my single friends.


  10. I read this mainly for the one chapter on how the gender ratio has affected Mormons and Orthodox Jews, but the rest of it was pretty interesting too The author comes up with some theories as to why the increasing number of women being college educated means that their dating pool is shrinking Two things crossed my mind whilst reading this 1 He seemed a bit fixated on women s biological clock , not every woman wants kids.2 I can understand why comparatively fewer smart, educated guys are in deman [...]


  11. Notice this is not an empowering feminist book Regardless, I like social science and I found this book quite interesting It also presents the research in a really readable way, it s not dry and boring A lot of the results are not going to be shocking to most women in the US today it will simply be confirmation of what they are experiencing feeling The causes that are presented here and their impact on the social scene are interesting through i.e gender ratios in higher ed There s not a ton of wh [...]



  12. Entertaining in an anecdote y random statistics kind of way, though the chapter on Mormons and Jews was pretty fascinating.The advice is kind of meh Pay attention to gender ratios when selecting colleges Too late, dude I suspect many 18 year old women still think as I did I had twelve years before my imaginary ideal marriage age College was just the beginning I had no idea how many people at least meet their future spouse in college, though I have definitely reflected on the fact that I would mo [...]


  13. The numbers don t lie, ladies There are simply not enough viable marriage candidates out there This book discusses the fact that female college graduates seeking male college graduates are in a bit of a bind because there aren t enough to go around What I didn t like about the book the depressing statistics, TMI about the deviant sex lives of some NYC singles What I did like about the book the chapter devoted entirely to the unique cultural issues that compound this problem within the LDS and Je [...]


  14. I have mixed feelings about this book Whereas it is full of interesting data and statistics nicely showing how gender ratios influence our dating habits, it shows only a part of bigger picture.First of all, this book have serious limitation, since it defines relationship through marriage and there s a plethora of other relationships which are happy and didn t end in marriage open, polyamorous relationships and so on.Secondly, Math it s not the only contributing factor author seems to forgot abou [...]


  15. Fascinating look at how gender ratios influence dating and marriage habits around the country I didn t give 5 stars, because a lot of the evidence is anecdotal rather than from research Particularly found the chapter about Mormons and Jews to be very interesting Chapter 4 goes into some specifics of the hookup culture and behaviors of men particularly in New York where gender ratios are very skewed You might want to skip that chapter if you are uncomfortable with interviews with men sharing deta [...]


  16. This book is not as interesting as the short article in Time Magazine made me think it would be The numbers are fascinating, and if Birger had stuck to them, it would have been a much better book The book seems one sided, focusing on the degenerate aspects of the dating world It also focuses on college educated singles, to the near exclusion of non college educated singles Birge devotes one chapter late in the book to the specific cases of Mormons and Jews As a single Mormon woman living in Sal [...]


  17. This is a really fun book that explains A LOT about the dating predicament now faced by Millennial women And it s an absolute must read for college applicants and their parents Loaded with fascinating data and colorful anecdotes, the book shows the connection between a college s gender ratio and whether a school s dating culture will emphasize relationships or random hookups After reading this book, a lot of parents may think twice about sending their daughters to schools like New York Universit [...]


  18. A quick and fascinating if depressing read about how the odds are stacked against women Not just at colleges, where it s apparently depressingly prevalent to have 3 females for every 2 guys, but in places I never would ve though of, like orthodox Judaism and Mormons The author posits that a lot of the hookup culture ethos is a matter of ratios, and I was convinced.Of course, if it were pure ratios, I would be winning But it s not just me I also took comfort from the Carol syndrome Yeah, that s p [...]


  19. Interesting and not too long.Interesting read that explains correlation and causality First few chapters are a little redundant Game theory chapter was a good idea but needs improvement Also, gotta be comfortable with numbers to like it.


  20. A very interesting read Not a how to book but I m tired of those anyway , but it gives me some validation that the shortage of educated men and the player ness of the ones there are isn t all in my headd it makes me want to start looking for a job in Silicon Valley.


  21. Single It s not your fault It s math This book shows just how powerfully lopsided gender rations can warp the dating culture on your college campus, town and church Highly recommended Most useful dating book you ll ever read.


  22. Excellent book If you re a single woman or you have a teenaged daughter getting ready to head off to college, read this book It may affect whether you ever get married or not.


  23. Short but eye opening presentation of how male to female ratios affect dating and marriage, among other important things Rings true.


  24. Enlightening Upon reading this, I went to check the population census for Singapore and it partially explains why my lovely female friends remains single.



  25. I loved this Quick, easy read.I m still talking about this book almost a year later so I m upping my review to 5 stars.


  26. Date onomics is the only dating book you ll ever need because science knows best I devoured it, loved it, and would assign it at NYU if I were still teaching there It s as enlightening as it is liberating and empowering, especially for women though both sexes will find it fascinating It doesn t just identify a ratio problem, it helps you to understand how that lopsided ratio transforms behavior, politics, economics, and every other aspect of culture and how you can make educated life decisions [...]


  27. I was excited to read this for the really fascinating excerpt on the Orthodox Jewish marriage crisis and the Mormon marriage crisis, which was a solid 5 out of 5 Unfortunately, the rest of the book wasn t as interesting as those case studies I did find the general idea of male female ratios determining some larger trends like promiscuity and women s rights interesting, but didn t really need a whole book about it.
