But I’m reluctant to attribute how we got to “50/50” entirely to Title IX, because women were making gains in college enrollment not just in the U.S., but throughout the Western world, even in countries where the policy push for equal rights evolved more slowly.“Hey, come over here and talk to me,” a guy said standing with a group of friends. As I prepare for a Summer stint across the pond, I thought I'd repost this lovely piece written exclusively for The Creamin My by my favorite New Zealander, not to confused with Zoolander, Jim O'Don...As young women, we enter the world of dating on a mission to discover what type of man works for us, who we enjoy spending time with and ultimately what kind of man we can eventually see ourselves spendin...
Back then, there was this mindset that young women went to college not to prepare for careers, but to get their “MRS.” So the passage of Title IX in 1972 certainly leveled the playing field.

It is not the first time that I have come across the attitude that career women deserve to be alone if they don’t want to date men without any education, or men a generation older, or the obese. Alas, men don’t care if you’re taller, richer, smarter, or funnier. Which is why men can date ANYONE – regardless of education, income, and height – while many women can only date 1 in 1000 men who are 6 feet tall, with a masters degree and a 0,000 income.
