As the response says, she loves to make this argument… and she is epically out of touch with reality!

I suppose that the only good suggestion she makes is to keep in touch with people who are intelligent and seemingly great people of your preferred gender whom you meet in college–good for networking AND for potential relationships! But I assume people are doing that anyway because of Facebook

For the record, I’m getting a PhD and I met my DH after college. I definitely did not meet anyone in college I would be interested in as a life partner.

@RunnerBride13:  This woman again? Le sigh. I am starting to believe that she is a professional troll like that “fat chicks don’t deserve love” douche.

The only decent points she made were the “giving things away for free.” I agree, women shouldn’t be catering to men in the dating stages, but everything else? Don’t agree.

@RunnerBride13:  Oh this woman again. She’s nuts.

I went to an elite college, and I’ve been surrounded by smart, high-achieving men in both my professional and social lives ever since. People who go to elite schools tend to end up in elite careers and elite neighborhoods and elite social circles – it’s not like Princeton women graduate and never encounter Ivy League men ever again.

I’m not agreeing with her that finding another Ivy Leaguer is necessary to finding your professional/intellectual equal, but just pointing out that she’s still wrong about needing to find that person in college.

And don’t even get me started about the notion that every man wants to date a woman 10 years his junior. If a 32 year old man wants to get married and settle down, it’s a lot more likely that he’s going to be able to achieve that with a woman his age than with a 22 year old.

Ummm, I’m in my 30’s and just married the love of my life. In fact for me personally I knew who I was and what I wanted in a partner so much better once I hit 30 than I ever did when I was in my 20’s. I went out with a lot of men who were getting divorced in their 30’s after marrying in their 20’s.  They all pretty much said the same thing…they were both too young.
