For young adults in particular, this overall increase in online dating usage has been accompanied by a dramatic increase in the use of mobile dating apps.Fully 22% of 18- to 24-year-olds now report using mobile dating apps, a more than fourfold increase from the 5% who reported using dating apps in 2013.I spoke with Birger shortly before his book was released about some of his findings. In 2012, there were 34 percent more women than men who graduated from college. If we had had this conversation in the '50s or '60s, the gender ratios would be reversed.The interview has been edited for length and clarity.

For people in their 20s, it's four women for every three men. In Manhattan, there are 38 percent more female college grads under the age of 25 than college-grad men, according to Birger's data. C., 86 percent in Miami, 49 percent in Washington and 37 percent in Los Angeles. that more men than women graduated from college was 1981.
And it’s not just cities – many rural areas also have these “educated man deficits.” As "Date-onomics" shows, this mismatch in the number of college-educated men and women leads to some surprising consequences, affecting not just dating, marriage and fidelity, but campus culture, credit card debt and even pop song lyrics. Since then, the college gender gap has been getting wider every year.
