Why would a sharp, optimistic and sensual girl waste her time on a vampire boyfriend? Especially when this vampire has nothing whatsoever in common with his literary kin, such as the breathtakingly gorgeous Ted from “Sparklevamps” or the drop-dead-sexy “Dreamy vampire heartbreakers”? First of all, Nina’s vampire boyfriend is called Vladimiro – a name that inspires ridicule, but not much else… and least of all romantic thoughts. He is quite pale, gaunt and the bags under his eyes are scarier than he is. Even his character has few redeeming qualities: he is ultra-conservative, pompous, conceited, and cowardly! He is completely maladjusted to the modern society and wants nothing to do with it in any case. Quite apart from all this, a romance with this vampire is destined to be a nightmare, as he has very few useful powers and a great deal of weaknesses. The sunlight, for example, could disintegrate him in only a few seconds! Even worse, his complete lack of life makes it utterly impossible for him to live up to the expectations of his emotional girlfriend. There must be something self-destructive about Nina. But then again, all human beings are known to want what they just can’t have. The girls in the “Monstrous relationships” support group are definitely among them. In their meetings Rita, Azure, Jessica – and now also Nina – vent their frustration of being in a relationship with the Frankenstein monster, a werewolf, a swamp demon and Vladimiro, the worst of them all. Every boyfriend – be it a vampire, werewolf or any supernatural being – is something of a monster, after all, and every girlfriend’s dearest wish is to be able to change them. “Dating a Vampire!” won the Comic Vampires competition and has become a popular series.

interest, but I put off calling them.

circled in the paper. Don’t call the one in the second column. It’s me.”

10 Reasons I Quit Online Dating

Like basically every person alive right now, I tried online dating. I figured if I wasn’t on there, I was missing out, missing an opportunity and missing finding my person.


I tried everything from tindr, to Jswipe, to grindr, to every other word that is missing an “e” in it.

I made lots of matches, talked to lots of “interesting” men and even went on a fair number of first dates.

However, after partaking in my own dating experiment, during which I went on one date every night for a week, and two dates on Friday, I finally reached my ultimate conclusion.

Online dating just isn’t for me.

I want to preface that for everything I say, I know there are a ton of people who will disagree, and have the relationships to prove it, but as I ventured into and out of the virtual dating sphere I found out a lot about myself. Additionally, I know my experiment might sound extreme, but I needed something extreme to happen for me to really give it up once and for all.

This is what I found out:

1. I Was Bored

If you’ve ever been on any of these apps, gay or straight, you know that most of your hunting, swiping and searching is done when you are bored. If you live in a cosmopolitan like myself then chances are you aren’t necessarily bored a lot because you have work, friends, fitness and a ton of other things constantly at your disposal, but boredom somehow creeps up on you. All of a sudden you’re bored at work, bored at home, bored with your friends, bored at the gym. I think you catch my drift.

Life just isn’t as exciting as you want it to be, and the thought that maybe just around the next swipe is the person you’ve been searching for all along is exciting.

However, the problem arises when you finally do get excited, but continue to keep swiping because why not?

2. No One Was Ever Who I Thought They Were

As you make matches, swipe past people and possibly converse you start to build an idea of who the person is on the other side of the phone. You create an ideal, and all of a sudden every little nuance becomes a bigger complexity to who that person is, and how they operate.

You can’t help, but think, “Damn, where have you been all my life?”

And then bam.

Mister Amazing loses his luster. He either starts creeping real hard, says something that throws everything off, disappears or just never decides to meet up.

If by some crazy force of nature you guys do set a date and meet, chances are he is not who he claimed to be, or who you built him up to be.

His confident demeanor is replaced with one that is far less interesting, and not having the phone as an easy buffer shows you a much different person than the one you thought you had been chatting with.

This is why after 6 first dates in 5 days, I not once found myself wanting a second date.

3. I Am Pickier Online Than In Real Life

Having someone be presented essentially as a two-dimensional option, rather than a real life opportunity makes them feel much more disposable. I know personally, I looked at everything: from what you said on your profile, to how you said it, to what pictures you picked to best represent you with not just a little bit of judgment, but a lot.

There was no energy, no butterflies, no eyes from across the room to say, “Hey, wait there’s something special about this one, and we can’t put our fingers on it.”

It was all brain, and no heart in who I decided to virtually flirt with. You literally became a resume that I could toss into the trash pile without any real thought, or feeling, which isn’t how finding our potential partner should work.

4. I Became Way More Shallow

Sure, whether it’s real life or virtual reality, the first thing you notice is how someone looks, but in a real life, you quickly see how someone acts, moves, sounds, etc.

These other important attributes are what creates someone individuality, and takes them from being just anyone to uniquely them.

If I didn’t like what I saw, I was quick to swipe left. No thought other than, nope, not what I think I like. Hair, eyes, skin color, height, weight all became your stats in a world where I had never used statistics to make my choice of who I might be interested in.

Yes, all those things did and do continue to play a part of who I am interested in, but online they became all I saw, and I left little room to be more open-minded than had I been meeting these gentlemen in person.

Sometimes you just don’t know you’re best angles, and sometimes you do, which is why I always say buyer beware when it comes to what you think you’re getting online.

5. I Don’t Like Games

And that’s exactly what all these things are, games.

While none of these apps call themselves games, it doesn’t take much effort to realize that that is exactly what they are. Video games, if you will, where you become the player, and everyone else is the game.

There are rules, directions and even moments asking if you’d like to chat, or “keep playing.”

They say don’t hate the player, hate the game, and that is exactly what ended up happening for me. I hated the game and playing only made me like myself less and less.

6. I Wasn’t Honoring My Truth

Going off the idea that these things are a game with rules, I quickly found myself changing who I was to best “win” at the game.

I was holding myself back, I was playing up certain parts of myself, and playing down other characteristics, all so I could be more “desirable.”

I became who I thought I was supposed to be, not who I was. I acted more way casual, and less emotional than I really am. I put only the best pictures of myself out there, but not what I look like when I wake up in the morning.

I filtered myself in basically every way, and took what makes me uniquely special out of the equation, so I could be more “marketable.” That isn’t sexy, romantic or interesting. It’s dishonest, dull and way too technical for something that shouldn’t be so systematic.

7. I Wasn’t Happy

While I didn’t realize this till months later, I was simply unhappy with my life. I was using the idea of dating as an escape from my own life because well, it’s an easy distraction, and even easier the more venues, or apps, you have to keep the hunt alive.

I don’t think this is necessarily true for everyone facilitating these tools, but I do think it’s way more common than many people realize.

It’s another numbing device in the avoidance of ourselves. Focusing your attention on others as a way to not look in the mirror, and find what is truly wrong, hurting or uncomfortable at this moment in our own lives.

It’s really easy to think that when you find someone a lot of your issues will just subside or disappear, but the truth is until you start to work on you, you’ll never be happy, coupled up or single.

One of the hardest things to do is look in the mirror and be honest with yourself because there usually is a lot of sadness, confusion and disappointment. However, when you finally admit this to yourself, you take the first step to changing all of that.

8. It Made Me Crazy

Thinking about who I could meet, having numerous conversations with multiple people and trying to keep up with all of it was exhausting.

Call me old-fahsioned, but I think there is something beyond romantic about meeting someone, one person, and courting each other. Finding out about each other, focusing on just him and seeing where it could go.

Having Larry, Moe and Curly in the wings just kept me unnecessarily anxious, unfocused and a part of the three stooges.

Call me crazy because I for thinking I wanted to, or could juggle that many men at one time.

9. I Wanted A Relationship/Boyfriend

I know many people will disagree with me when discussing this topic, but hear me out.

As I chatted, met and repeated each of these steps with guy after guy, and there even was one named, Guy, I found myself constantly sitting across the table from someone, who wasn’t on my page.

Maybe it was the guys I was swiping right to, the app I was choosing to facilitate or any other number of reasons, but it seemed like most of these men didn’t actually want a relationship.

They wanted something, but not a relationship.

They wanted validation. They wanted attention. They wanted someone to have dinner, a conversation or sex with, but not actually a relationship.

Essentially, they wanted to win the game, by winning me over, and that was that.

Winning meant different things to different people, but it never felt like there was two winners at the end of it all, and in my opinion, there is no point in taking part in anything where you don’t have two winners.

I know that life won’t always make this the outcome, and that’s ok, but to go into anything with only your wants, needs and desires in mind, sets you and your potential partner up for a lose/lose situation.

I truly believe it’s either two winners, or two losers and the later played out far too frequently in this unwinnable game.

10. It Just Isn’t For Me

In the end we all have the right to do, act and say as we please, but as I had swam through the never ending pool of virtual daters, I found myself tired, numb and even more bored than when I had started.

I didn’t like the shallow conversations I was having to have over and over again. I didn’t like the lack of emotion that was fostered through staring at my screen for hours, and I didn’t like that I felt bad day after day about not finding what I had been searching for.

After being off all dating apps for about a year, I can honestly say I am more at peace with my life, my love life and myself. I have met some great guys in real life, “organically,” if you will, who have showed me that there are some great ones still out there, and you don’t need to be staring at your screen to find them.

Frankly, you need to be doing the opposite. Look up, look around you, look all over. There are great, funny, interesting individuals all over the place: at work, on the subway, in the grocery store, on the street. The key is to just get over yourself, and say hi.

Yes, you might get rejected, but that’s ok!

We let so many people walk right past us, sit down next to us, and stare at us, but never take a leap of faith and say hi because we don’t have a buffer. Forget about the buffer, forget about your pride, forget about everything because when you see someone in real life, and they give you butterflies, you need to honor that feeling and fly with them.

Dating isn’t a game, there shouldn’t be rules, and the longer you stay a player the longer you just get stuck playing a video game.

I’m not saying quit everything all at once, but I am saying that if the thought of doing that scares you, you’re probably addicted and actually do need one big break from all of them.

Enjoy the process, enjoy your time and most importantly enjoy yourself because until you do, no one else is going to enjoy you either.

Finding inner peace shows, and will create peace in all other aspects of your life. Whether it’s dating, relationships or work confidence is gold.

Good luck, and happy dating.

The Truth Behind The Blake Shelton And Gwen Stefani Dating Rumors

Newly-single Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are heating things up on “The Voice.” The two coaches seem to have undeniable chemistry, but a source close to Shelton says nothing is going on.

“It’s total bulls**t,” the source told People. “There’s nothing there. They’re nothing more than friends.” 

Stefani, lead singer of “No Doubt,” filed for divorce from Gavin Rossdale in August. Rossdale and Stefani were married for nearly 13 years and share three children together.

Though Stefani hasn’t commented directly on the split, she told Cosmopolitan in February, “We go through so much together — it’s a miracle that we could stay together this long.”

Shelton and estranged wife Miranda Lambert announced their divorce in July, after four years of marriage. Despite what happened, Shelton says he’s still friendly with his ex. 

“We knew if rumblings and rumors started coming out, they would just be that. By the time anybody knew anything, it was over. It was done,” said Shelton on the “Bobby Bones Show.” ”Our whole thing was, we are going to be cool about this, it is what it is. We’re buddies.”

Season 9 of “The Voice” premiered in September, so there’s still a lot of time to watch Stefani and Shelton flirt interact. But with news that original host Christina Aguilera is coming back for Season 10, this romance rumor could soon be over.

The Hardest Part About Dating As A Divorced 20-Something

I was 28 years old when I filed for divorce and became single again for the first time since I was legally allowed to drink. But walking around the streets of Manhattan, I was just another twenty-something-year-old single girl. I didn’t “look” divorced.

I know this doesn’t really seem like a big deal — or if anything, it seems like a good thing, right? No visible scars. I was young, I didn’t have any kids and I was in the “typical” age range for dating and all that.

But this meant that anyone I dated automatically assumed that my single status was the same as everyone else’s: maybe I had some prior relationships, but I still hadn’t found the right guy.

And the way dating works if you’re seemingly just-a-regular-girl-in-the-big-city is that there is a common set of expectations around the timeline of how things go down:

  • First kiss: fair game for the first date.
  • More er, intimate stuff: sometime after the third date.
  • Meet the friends: after a couple months of consistent dating.
  • Mention that you’re in the process of getting a divorce: ummmmm… ?!!!?

Dilemma. When do you mention that you’ve been married before?

I had some friends who told me, “You don’t have to tell him about your situation, that’s none of his business”. But those people just didn’t understand what being divorced at 28 really feels like. And since you’ve lived within a marriage, you know better than anyone just how important honesty and trust are to a healthy relationship.

If you get far enough along dating someone where it feels like it’s time to broach the topic of previous relationships, you’ve probably built up some intimacy between you. Therefore, waiting too long to mention, “By the way I’m divorced,” might erode some of that trust you’ve worked hard to establish.

I mean, imagine saying that to someone who thinks they know you. Feels like a huge deal, right? My biggest fear about this situation was that nobody would want to be with me once they found out I was going through a divorce.

The good news is that this fear turned out to be totally unfounded. Here are some of the typical responses I got:

  • Disbelief: “You’re divorced?”
  • Digging deeper: “Do you have kids?”
  • Security check: “Is there still anything between you two?”
  • Gathering facts: “How long has it been?”
  • Trying to make you feel good about yourself: “His loss.”
  • Awkward commentary: “It’s not weird. It would be weird if you were still married.” (… the paperwork for my divorce took three years to finalize, I was technically still married for most of my dating life…awkward!).

The common thread through all of this was that the guy on the receiving end of the information was trying to make sense of what it meant in terms of him and me. Nobody ever seemed bothered by this news. Nor did anyone (who was nice/sane) try to use my past against me. Ever.

So fear not. I found that the “I have an ex husband” thing doesn’t have to be a big deal in your new relationship as long as you take care of a couple things:

  • Be honest before you get too serious or intimate with someone.
  • Make sure that he feels secure in your relationship with him.

And if you are divorced and out in the wild, dating again, please remember that getting divorced when you’re this young isn’t “just a break-up.” Your ex-husband was a member of your family and since you’re still so young, he also probably was a part of your world for most or all of your adult life. Dealing with that kind of loss, especially when the vast majority of your peers just can’t relate to your situation is not easy. Take it slow while you heal, and always trust your instincts.

There is so much about being successful at dating that it can make your head spin.

While there are some big don’ts when dating, there are others that are little known but have profound repercussions. Remember that saying of a small leak sinks a great vessel?

The Over-50 Step-by-Step Guide To Online Dating Success

Last month, I wrote a piece on the differences between what men worried about when they were dating in their teens (“Will she laugh at my peach fuzz?”) compared to their concerns when dating Over 50 (“Will she laugh at my back hair?”). You can read the other 24 here.

When it comes to overall changes in the world of dating between then and now, the very best improvement has to be online dating. Truly, it’s an historic innovation that ranks up there with the cotton gin, penicillin, and those lights in the parking garages that show you which spaces are empty.

Online dating just makes everything so simple.

Instead of spotting someone of interest; figuring a way to get to know him or her; doing your best to make a good impression; then working up the courage to ask her out (man) or hoping he will (woman), you merely fill out an online form, add some pictures, click a button, and boom: it’s game on.

How that game will go is impossible to say. Maybe you’ll find the love of your life, as the major online dating companies all seem to promise. Maybe you’ll engage in a steady stream of short-term, non-committed, sexually-driven encounters as a few of my friends did. Or maybe, like me, you’ll just have a nice time and meet some interesting people (okay, fine, I know what you’re thinking — yes, of course I’m envious of those friends…).

If you’re single and considering a full profile site like Match or OkCupid, or if you’re in a less than ideal marriage and wondering about online dating (check out this article on that situation), here’s a step-by-step look at getting the process started:

Get a separate, nondescript email address. You can do this for free through gmail, hotmail, yahoo, or others. Privacy is certainly a factor, but it’s also easier to keep your dating correspondence separate from your regular personal and business email. You’ll get lots of emails from your dating site, and hopefully a flood from people eager to meet you.

Choose your dating site screen name. Dating site screen names span the entire gamut. People use first names or initials, a personality trait (Loves2Laugh), a favorite activity (GolfNut), their hometown (LABabe), their profession (ElMatador), or a combination (NYCDocRuns). It’s wide open, and gives you a chance to highlight something(s) about yourself to catch their eye. So be prepared before you go online, recognizing you’ll likely have to add random characters (zip code, birth year, underscores) to achieve uniqueness. If you use a full-sentence-in-a-screen-name like “Imaybthe14U2luv4evr,” chances are good U will B 4gotN.

Add pictures. Okay, here’s a fact: your primary picture will make or break your online dating experience. But wait, you say. I’m on a full profile site because I abhor the shallowness of swipe apps like Tinder. I’m so much more than my picture; I’ve got hopes and dreams and wit and style, all of which I need to express fully so potential dates will know the true me, inside and out.

Yeah, that’s great. But if they don’t like your picture, they’re not reading a word you wrote.

Which isn’t to say you’ve got to look like Brad or Angelina to succeed at online dating. Of course not. But this photo needs to show you at your best. A clear shot, a nice smile, and bright eyes will help you score points (an Over 50 photo tip: looking up at the camera can help prevent that mess below our jaws…). Avoid hats, sunglasses, and being too “artsy.” And this picture must be mostly your face — if you’re turned away, or you’re too small to really make out, you’re going to get passed on.

Then add at least four or five additional pictures. They should both prove your primary shot isn’t a fluke, and illustrate other aspects of your life. You might include photos with your kids, your dog, traveling, hiking or biking, perhaps a business portrait. At least one should show your body head to toe. And make sure they’re consistently good. You don’t want someone to click through your pictures and go, “Wow … very nice … excellent … oooh, that’s too bad. Pass.”

Your pictures must be fairly recent. Not yesterday, but not (original) Clinton Administration. It makes absolutely no sense to post old photos, then show up looking like the parent of the person your date expected. At that point, there is zero chance you’ll win him or her over with your sparkling personality. And if you do have to use a great shot from the 00’s, cop to it and put the date in the picture’s caption.

Remember: a photograph transmits a tremendous amount of information. Be aware of that fact when choosing yours, and when browsing other’s.

Write your profile. For the “essay portion,” keep these basic concepts in mind:

First, be brief. Shakespeare didn’t know from online dating, but his “… brevity is the soul of wit” is spot on. Nobody is going to wade through through a fifty line block of solid text about what it will take to be your soulmate. Thanks to the internet, most people just skim, looking for nuggets of interest. Make it easy for your reader.

Secondly, stay positive, but show some humility. Nobody’s life is perfect, and portraying yours that way won’t make you look good. You’re over fifty and single — something didn’t work out at some point along the way. And that’s okay, since it’s the same for the people reading your words. By all means emphasize the good things in your life, but noting you’ve had a down or two among the ups only makes you more genuine, relatable, and approachable.

And finally, rather than presenting a dry list of your specific skills or traits, tell your potential dates what’s in it for them. For instance, instead of saying you’re a great cook, mention how much you enjoy preparing a gourmet meal for two. Rather than bragging about the extensive travel you’ve done, note how wonderful it would be to show a very special someone the timeless beauty of Florence. In other words, don’t sell the feature, sell the benefit.

Answer the questions. In the “multiple choice” section you’ll select the best answers about yourself, and what you’re looking for in a potential date.

First biggie is age, and again the suggestion is to be honest. Some people list themselves as younger for “search purposes,” then tell the truth in their profile; that’s not as bad as using ancient pictures, but again gets you off to a poor start. Similarly, be honest, or at least honest-ish, for questions about your height, body-type, exercise frequency, etc.

As for questions about what you’re seeking in a date, go as broad as possible. List yourself as open to a wide age-range, at least a few years beyond your own. For topics like religion, ethnicity, hair color, etc., select “no preference” as often as you possibly can. Showing how open you are makes you look better to people inspecting your profile, and should lead to more contacts. You’re under no obligation, so why not have as many options as possible (and really, are you so “athletic and toned” that you’ll only date someone who’s likewise)?

Go Live. Launch your completed profile on a Sunday. Then get busy looking for people to approach, enjoy the contacts that pour in for you, or both. If things go well, you may have dates set for the very next weekend, and be off and running.

Next time we’ll look at approaching people you’re interested in, evaluating and responding when you’re contacted, setting up that first date, and the date itself.

News in Brief: New Dating Site Suggests People You Already Know But Thought You Were Too Good For

SAN FRANCISCO—Saying love could be as close as a neighbor or colleague you’ve never once found yourself remotely interested in, new dating website launched this week with a promise to pair users with people they already know but thought they were too good for. “On Second Thought uses a compatibility formula unlike any other site, drawing your personalized matches exclusively from those within your daily life who you’ve always considered beneath you,” said founder Layla Mufti, adding that the site’s easy-to-use interface allows members to get another look at the network of people they’ve written off in the past for not being attractive, intelligent, interesting, polite, active, hygienic, or stable enough to meet their standards. “One day you might get paired with someone from work who you’ve always regarded as mediocre-looking and kind of dumb, while the next it could be a …

What Men Want, According to Online Dating

I’m trying this online dating thing. You see, I’m late 30s and almost officially divorced. As a single mom, I don’t have much options meeting men and when I do go out, guys in their mid-20s flock to me. It’s sweet but not really practical.

So here I am, finally splashing in the big kid pool called dating. I wasn’t sure what men wanted at my age. I mean, I had been monogamous for years and so I didn’t know what to expect. I signed up for a few sites, and low and behold, I have learned a few things about what men want, according to online dating. I thought it would be conversation, company, and maybe sex.
Turns out it’s not exactly what I had expected.

Yard Work:
“I’m looking for a woman to go fishing with and do yard work. I hope she enjoys it!”

This was a message I received from a man.

Note, if you have ever seen me with a weed whacker, you would know that enjoying yard work + Laura is virtually impossible.

Apparently men don’t want good conversation, they want someone to pick those damn weeds!

Answer Their Damn Messages:
“We could have had something good together!”

I hadn’t responded to the 50th email of his so he was angry about all of our romantic tensions dying.

Apparently, men want to be acknowledged just like women, even if they’re stalkers.

Find Good Plastic Surgeons:
The first message I received from one man was: “I love your tits. Where did you get them done?”
Apparently, men want to know the names of good plastic surgeons for their future ex-wives I’m assuming.
P.S. They’re real, Kiddo.

No Games, No Drama:
No games. No drama. I’m no drama. I’m no games. I’m not here for games.
The game and drama speak is endless. Men shout from their online profiles: NO DRAMA.

Apparently, men are becoming VERY serious about their online dating and attempting to cover up their endless need for drama with a refusal of said need.
Everyone knows that when thou protests much there is something to hide.

A Foot Rub:
“I would love someone to rub my feet.”
Apparently, this guy’s concubine was out to lunch and he just needed a fill-in.
Hey if the pay is good…why not?

More Kids: But In His Order:
“I want more children. A boy first and then a girl, and a year apart total.”
Apparently, this is a baby-making service and not an online dating tool. I wonder how he planned on guaranteeing the gender of the kids?

I’ve Been So Blessed:
I messaged one man saying hello. He got back to me stating that “I am incredibly blessed with the ability to already find two people to talk to and so I will be closing all opportunities at this time.”

Apparently, he wasn’t blessed with two women to date but blessed with a gift from God or the ability to sound like a contestant in the Miss America contest.

At this rate, I may not be meeting quality men but at least I’m “learning” so much and laughing about it!

How to Know Your Dating Site is a Fraud

When the Ashley-Madison hack revealed that the vast majority of female profiles on the “dating” site were fake, three groups of people already knew that. A long time ago.

One of those groups includes all of the people on Earth that have more than five minutes of experience in the business world. If you are building a business that only has value if populated by lots of users on day one, you can’t get there from here. At least not legally, or ethically.

And if you do, there is some special case going on.

There are many dating websites. Can there be that many special cases? They all seemed to be populated with hot people on day one. (Otherwise they would not be in business today.) Did any of them get there organically, or even honestly? Again, anyone with five minutes of business experience already knows the answer, statistically speaking. 

The second group of people that knew the dirty truth long ago are the people who have spent more than sixty second on any of the big dating sites and also have an IQ over 80. I have sampled most of the famous-name dating sites (Why would I try just one?) and the fake profiles could not be more obvious. They are no better disguised than a mall Santa. Single people laugh about it. But I doubt most of them know the percentage of fakes. It varies by site. I have seen a few dating sites this year with 95% fakes (quite obviously), so wait for more on this story.

The third group of people who knew all along about the fake profiles includes anyone who was a founder or early employee at any of the dating sites. My guess is that many of them thought they would cheat the membership numbers in the beginning to get traction, then go legit over time. Then they got greedy. And obviously they knew what the competing sites were doing. It probably seemed normal.

Now if you will excuse me, I need to go back to reading the news that men look for sex when they are not getting enough. I am still in shock to learn of this.

The Dating Market Might Actually Be Worse For Educated Straight Women

After journalist Jon Birger entered his 30s, he began to notice a pattern in his social circle: Most of the men he knew were married or in a relationship and most of the women he knew were single and having a hard time dating. These women had “everything going for them,” he told The Huffington Post, yet they either couldn’t get dates or were stuck dealing with men who toyed with them. 

Birger became curious about his anecdotal experience and wanted to see if there were statistics to back up what his single female friends were going through — and there were. He believes that the lopsided dating scene in large U.S. cities like New York all comes down to a gender ratio which favors men. In the U.S. as a whole, men and women are split about 50/50, but that ratio shifts when you look at the number of college graduates by gender: Women between 25 and 34 are 21 percent more likely than men to be college graduates, according to 2013 data. 

In this environment, educated heterosexual women who wish to date men who also graduated college must navigate a playing field in which guys have significantly more dating prospects, a phenomenon Birger calls the “man deficit.” Birger’s new book Date-onomics centers around this very concept, and offers a not-so-romantic aerial view of the contemporary dating landscape. 

“A lot of the women who I talked to about this felt like they must be doing something wrong or it must be their fault,” he said. “I think, for at least some of them, it was reassuring to know that it wasn’t just in their heads.”

In conversation with The Huffington Post, Birger explained exactly how the “man deficit” plays out, who has better odds in the dating pool and what women might want to do once they understand the demographics:

Your theory centers around the concept of a “man deficit.” What exactly does that mean?

Women have been graduating from college at a higher rate than men going back to the early ‘80s, and at a much higher rate than men going back to the ‘90s. These college graduation rates and gender ratios have spilled over into the post-college dating market. Of course, none of this would matter if we were all more open-minded about who we were willing to date and marry — both college-educated men and women have become less willing to date and marry non-college-educated people. 

[In this environment], men take advantage. A core part of my argument is that the college and post-college hookup culture is to a large extent a product of these gender ratios. There’s a lot of social science on this, and it all points to the ideas that men delay marriage and play the field when women are in oversupply. When it’s the opposite, the culture is more likely to emphasize courtship and romance.

In your opinion, has online dating affected this dynamic?
I’m probably going to be in the minority in this argument, but my point of view is that it doesn’t really matter. I know everybody thinks Tinder is causing the hookup culture, but the reality is that there’s actually a history of blaming new technologies for young people having more sex.


I know everybody thinks Tinder is causing the hookup culture, but … I think stuff like Tinder are symptoms, not the cause.

Honestly, a lot of the guys I interviewed who you’d probably think are the most schmuck-y, so to speak, were doing it the old-fashioned way. They were going up to pretty women in bars and buying them drinks. They didn’t have their heads in their phones. This is a lofty way of me saying that I think stuff like Tinder are symptoms, not the cause.

You explain how, unlike women of other races, Asian-American women are immune to the man deficit. Why do you think that is?

I was completely confused by that. Initially, I wanted to see what groups were more or less affected by the man deficit. I assumed, since Asians are more likely to be college-educated than non-Asians, I’d write about Asian women and explore how vulnerable they are to the man deficit because so many of them are college-educated. But it turns out that I was 100 percent wrong. If you look at the census data, Asian women marry at a much higher rate than non-Asian women.

I couldn’t figure out why, though. I was talking to one of my Asian friends, and she said, “It’s funny — when I was in high school, nobody wanted to date the Asian girl, but something happened in the ‘90s where suddenly everybody wanted to date the Asian girl.” For her, the cultural touchstone of this was that “Seinfeld” episode [in which Jerry is disappointed that his date isn’t Chinese]. In the book, I try to stay away from the “why” part. 

But there are studies out there showing that men in general perceive Asian women as most attractive. Then there was this terrific data from OKCupid that tracked message response rates for people of different races. The takeaway was that Asian-American women have the highest response rates. This even held true among lesbians.

You generally stayed away from giving advice in the book, but you wrote that college-educated women who want to marry college-educated men are better off marrying “Mr. Perfectly Acceptable,” rather than holding out until 40 for Mr. Right. Can you explain what you mean by that?

I want to preface this by saying that I totally get that not everybody prioritizes marriage over career. Even for people who want to get married, it may not be their highest priority in life. Really, all I’m doing is trying to help people make informed decisions. A woman who puts an extremely high priority on getting married should know that every year you’re in the dating market, the numbers get worse for you.

A woman who puts an extremely high priority in getting married should know that every year you’re in the dating market, the numbers get worse for you.

I liken it to musical chairs. In the first round of musical chairs, really only the kid who isn’t paying attention doesn’t get a chair. But by the last round, you have a 50 percent chance of losing. In every successive round of the game, the odds of being left out increase.

This is also what happens in dating. If you start out in a dating pool of 140 women and 100 men, which is probably not unlike what young women in New York are staring at, that starts out as a 1.4 to one ratio. Once half of the women in this dating pool get married — so 70 women marry 70 men — the ratio among the remaining singles becomes greater than two to one. If you’re on the wrong end of the gender ratio — like college-educated women in general — every year you hold out, the dating market is going to be statistically more challenging.”

Numbers aside, do you think people are able to think in these terms? How does one know who is “Mr. Perfectly Acceptable”?
I’m an old married guy — I’m 46 and have been married for 20 plus years. If you talk to people who have been married for a long time, they’ll tell you there’s an element of compromise in all marriages, in all successful marriages. Sometimes the compromise is part of the fun. It would be boring if you were 100 percent perfectly compatible I think, and maybe others would disagree. There’s always a level of compromise in a marriage, no matter what the situation. 

You argue that ultimatums can help women in this type of environment. How so? 
In every other part of life — in business and politics — everybody understands the power of the ultimatum. But for some reason, people resist it when it comes to romance. The reality is that an ultimatum creates artificial scarcity in an otherwise abundant marketplace. It makes you want more of what you perceive you may lose.

One of these truisms that you hear in business is that you should never make a decision until you absolutely have to. If you’re a single 35-year-old man in Miami, Chicago or New York, every year the dating market becomes a little bit better for you. Why make a decision about one woman now when you can keep her as an option and continue exploring the market? I feel that the ultimatum is a way to push back against the male desire not to make a decision any sooner than he had to.

I feel that the ultimatum is a way to push back against the male desire not to make a decision any sooner than he had to.

You want it to happen naturally and organically, obviously. I get that and I get that what I’m saying is highly non-romantic, but I’m making an argument about what I think works, rather than what makes for the best love story.

How do you recommend that women approach their dating lives in such a lopsided market?
I’m going to preface this with: I’m not a dating coach — I’m a middle-aged guy and I’m not telling people how to live their lives. I’m just a believer in informed choices.

All things being equal, if you’re just starting out your career and you have one job offer in Manhattan and another job offer in Silicon Valley or San Jose, and you’re on the fence between the two jobs and you’re a monogamy- or marriage-minded heterosexual, my suggestion would be to put these gender ratios on your list of things to consider. Cities like Seattle or Silicon Valley or San Francisco or Denver have less lopsided or even male-skewed gender ratios among college grads, so the dating environment is going to be more woman-friendly.

At the same time, I totally get that a 45-year-old woman is not going to pick up her entire life and leave everything behind to go move to Denver. I realize that that’s not a realistic suggestion for some people.

So what would you tell women who aren’t willing to pick up and move?
If they’re online dating in a big city, one thing they could consider is to include the suburbs in their searches. I know it sounds counterintuitive, because it’s easy to think that all of the guys in the suburbs are going to be married. But in fact, generally speaking, the gender ratios among single college grads are less lopsided in the suburbs than they are in big cities.

I’m about to share what many women go through their entire lives not knowing, the things that our mothers don’t tell us about men in the standard sex talk, which to be fair has never really been enough information to prepare us women with when it comes to understanding men and having successful relationships with them. Men get away with too much and now you will learn how to turn the game around and make every step you make when dating work in your favor. Men and dating don’t have to be such an enigma or so frustrating. Women need to learn more about men so that they will have an easier ride when interacting with them and reading their signs.I know exactly how to read every male scenario and turn every situation around in a woman’s favor because I have taken the time to get to know and understand men, what they want and what they look for in women, their polar opposites.

Nick Jonas and Kendall Jenner’s relationship has officially been downgraded from taking it “very slowly” to a figment of our imaginations.

Awww, cute, but that’s a not how Jonas sees it. In a story published Friday, he told E! News, “We’re not dating,” 

He added, “Kendall is great and naturally with her being good friends with Gigi and with Joe and Gigi dating, there are times we’ll be in the same place and we all hang out.”
