The Washington Post recently spoke to Jon Birger, author of a new book called "Date-onomics: How Dating Became a Lopsided Numbers Game," where he looked at the respective dating pools for college-educated people ages 22-29. The newspaper published a list of the top 10 cities for dating for men and women, respectively, based off of information from Birger and the American Community Survey.

At the top of the list for women was San Jose, Calif., where there iare 112 men per 100 women. The San Francisco Bay Area proved to be a very popular location for dating for women, with three of its cities landing on the list.
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. took the top spot for the men's list, where there are a whopping 171 college-educated women per 100 men. The tenth city on the men's list, Raleigh N.C., had 141 women per 100 men, higher than any ranking on the women's list.
Birger attributes this to the fact that women have been attending college at higher rates than men since the 1980s. This has lead to a demographic mismatch for those who want to date at the same educational level, according to the Washington Post.
