    Why do they want a boyfriend so badly to go to such desperate lengths? This is worrisome. (I can guess why- It's because society has already convinced them to change/ restrict them selves in order to be more appealing to men. But now they can't even find a man? NOT happening!)

    @ Elaur: Why? To prove a point? She shouldn't have to do that.

    The school mentioned in the article lacks an engineering department, which helps explain the imbalance in this particular case study. There are many schools, including technical and Ivy League schools, that don't have this issue.

    Although, yes, the overall trend is still surprising.

    They said 55% or 60%, not 95%.
    According to the article, though, of the 40% male population women *may* consider 20% of those datable. Of those 20%, 10% will have a boyfriend of some sort already, leaving only 10% of the college population male, desirable, and single.

    The article was written by someone names Alex Williams, a unisex name, and I hardly saw that article as blaming anyone but just reporting the state of things.

    It's cause- shortage of men in colleges- and effect- their taking advantage of the imbalance.

    Seriously, "Women blame men"? Where are you even getting that? Could you direct me to a quote? As I recall it was more they were going along with it and complying with the guys desires . . ..

    Basically, yours is a poor summary that is far from capturing the main idea of the article.

    I agree with Jock, that article was lame.

    As for a man’s cheating, “that’s a thing that girls let slide, because you have to,” said Emily Kennard, a junior at North Carolina. “If you don’t let it slide, you don’t have a boyfriend.”
    Seriously now?

    magil:

    Stephen M. Farmer, North Carolina’s director of admissions, said that the university has a high female presence in part because it does not have an engineering school, which at most schools tend to be heavily male.
    Even the article says it!

    I have an engineering degree, it's a very low % of females. I was making a joke.

    Women can also do what younger males have done for centuries: Lower their standards.

    Here's a tip: Beer.

    I agree as well that the article wasn't stellar, but I don't agree with Jock's conclusion of what it was about.

    Seriously, she said that? yes. And does it probably reflect her honest opinion about the situation? yes. And is this pathetic? yes. Is it worrisome? I would say yes.

    I already knew that, but I'm still not getting the humor. Are you saying men are better than women at math?
