On the flip side, as a male this list serves as a "best places to get laid" showcase.

As a Sarasotan, and a reasonably attractive college-educated professional male, I can safely say that the single women in Sarasota are mainly interested wanna-be yuppie douchebags and elderly widowers.

Which is why I like to go down to Bradenton to pick up gash, they're easily impressed down there, not like snooty Sarasota women.

Gyrfalcon: I'd stay a thousand miles from Florida if I was looking for anything with less than three legs to marry, quite honestly.

Hey now. I think my third leg is quite fetching, thank you very much.

I live in the oldest state per capita with the lowest percentage of college educated women, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies.

(Actually, I'm weeping a bit inside knowing that I'm going to die childless and alone, but before I even moved here I had Fark to thank for that)

So, many women "find themselves marrying down the educational ladder." Welcome (sincerely) to success, ladies! And welcome to the same dynamics your opposite gender has dealt with for generations. So quit whining. And if you're so educated (which doesn't equal smart) realize that just because a guy doesn't have the same degree as you, doesn't mean they're unsuccessful, or a knuckle-dragging, non-conversational loser.

I suspect that either some sisters need to get over themselves, or they need to fess up to the fact that they're really just shopping for a mommy-hood sponsor.

rugman11: Lawnchair: rugman11: This is mostly small(ish) cities with large universities

Yep. The point is, if you think half the population has a college degree, you're living in a bubble of all highly-educated folks.  It's 20-35% in major cities, and 15-25% in most smaller areas.  It's also not going to get to get to 50% of the population without demeaning any meaning left in the term "college degree".  It's not 50% in Germany, Japan, or anywhere else in the world.

I don't think it's a "bubble" issue, just that most people who visit a site like Fark (and especially will comment) are more likely to be educated and to surround themselves with educated people.  I can't think of a single friend of mine who doesn't have a Bachelor's degree, but then again, most of my friends are either friends from college or people I (or my wife) work with.  And both of our workplaces are staffed largely (or exclusively) with college-educated people.

Goddammit, I totally just proved your point without realizing it.  I'm drunk.  Just ignore me.

Sarasota is home to a large number of retired circus people. So it has that going for it.
