Among college-educated adults in the US aged 22 to 29, there are about 5.5 million women and 4.1 million men, according to the Census Bureau's American Community Survey.
"In other words, the dating pool for straight, millennial, college graduates has four women for every three men," Birger says.
This online dating community focuses on the specific interests and desires of people like you.

The fact that she says no the first time doesn’t mean she can’t go out or doesn’t want to. Now, the third time she says no, she means it (and don’t insist). Italian guys take the same amount of time to get ready as American girls.
For example, they're more than twice as likely as others to consider suicide.
An Italian girl would never leave her friend alone.
Therefore, either have a friend so you all pair up, or you need an odd number: 1, she is by herself; or 3, so she can spend some time with you because she leaves two friends together.
A 2015 Vanity Fair story claimed these apps are responsible for a growing hookup culture, where anonymous sex has replaced traditional romance, because they give straight young men the impression that there's a surplus of available women.
But Tinder and its ilk (apps like Ok Cupid and Hinge) aren't entirely to blame, argues freelance journalist and former Fortune reporter Jon Birger in The Washington Post.
